MCM Worldwide Dips Into Their Archives to Revive the Saddle Bag

The Patricia Crossbody is a relic from the '70s.

The bucket bag has had it’s moment in the spotlight, but now, the focus is on the saddle bag. In suede from Cuyana? It’s divine. Céline’s Trotteur in a sumptuous forest green hue? That’s incredible. And MCM Worldwide’s version? It’s not only sleek, but it happens to be seeped in history.

Originally rolled out in the ’70s, MCM dipped into their archives to revive the Patricia style. In solid black or camel, this style is pared back, but it also comes in a logo-printed iteration, for a much flashier look. In a mini and a small size, this compact bag might be too tiny for the office, but it’s a great weekend bag. The Patricia can easily transition from brunch to afternoon adventures to date night with ease.

Although this style doesn’t need much of an introduction, it got one from Victoria’s Secret Angel Erin Heatherton, this past Saturday. She was on hand at the opening of MCM’s store at Roosevelt Field Mall on Long Island, posing with the Patricia purse.
