Satchel Style

Artist Jacky Tsai, creator of the instantly-recognisable Alexander McQueen floral skull design, has teamed up with British leather satchels brand Zatchels for a collaboration that combines fashion and art. Keen to show the world that he can build on the success of his iconic skull print, Tsai has further explored the idea that beautiful things can be created from unusual sources of inspiration.

His three unique prints are applied to Zatchels’ 13” satchels and saddlebags by engraving the designs into a metallic coating, which covers the leather. Drawing on unconventional themes such as petrol on water and microscopic scans of viruses, and creating a 3D model of his floral skull, Tsai gives the traditional bags a truly modern finish.

All Zatchels bags are handmade to order in Leicester and are available online. Find out more about Jacky Tsai on his website.
