The library
I loved the leather bags the girls carried for school in the film An Education, but I can't find them anywhere. Pictures are scarce, and I've only found a picture of one of the bags' front. I saw the movie and the fronts are different, but I can't find a decent shot of the other ones.

If anyone can id any of them, that would be fantastic! (I'm hoping they aren't all vintage stock!)

The style remind me of an amazing schoolbag that I found a week ago on urbanoutfitters uk, unfortunately I can't find it anymore, but I remember that the name was Cambridge schoolbag or something like that, take a look at this link

I don't know if it's the same used in the movie but it seems pretty close to it.

Wow, I checked the website, and I like their bags!!
The only problem I have is the buckle flap closure(it would make me crazy to close and open it), but they look great!
Are you thinking to have this bag? I wonder how it looks like IRL. :smile:
Thanks for sharing great information!

I bought one. I'll post photos in a week when it arrives. I love the backpack look. I had a friend years ago from Italy and this is the exact type of bag she had. I'm so happy to find an exact version here!

^^I got the 15" classic brown batchel:

I can't wait to receive it. My back has really been hurting due to carrying a strap bag that's loaded down with papers and materials. The backpack is perfect as it will distribute the weight equally and looks so Euro and cute. I also got my initials embossed in it in gold. I'll post as soon as it arrives!

LOVE this backpack photo! This is the one I got, but in red:

I'm looking forward to see the pictures, plus I really like personalized bags with the owner initials! Great choice! :graucho:

Here she is. The actually color is darker, closer to the photos from the movie posted above, the flash makes it look lighter:
