Ahh, the perks of being an internationally mega-famous supermodel. Chic parties, global travel, endless free swag. Not only did Kate Moss sit front row at the Mulberry Spring 2013 show earlier this week, but the Brit beauty got to be the first person to debut the instantly covetable Mulberry Willow Tote off the runway, barely 24 hours after the bag debuted in London.
At that point, Moss had already jet-setted to Milan, where paparazzi caught her dressed down for an afternoon of shopping before Milan Fashion Week got into full swing. Kate’s black croc (or croc-embossed, it’s difficult to tell from pictures) tote appears to be the larger version of the two that debuted on the runway, and even though she’s a British model who sat front row at the show, I’m a bit surprised to find her carrying the bag. Kate’s not the type who tends to wear or carry things that are obviously “placed” by brands, and although this bag seems to be, I doubt she’d have bothered with it if she weren’t actually a fan. It should go without saying, of course, that we’re also huge fans – check out more pictures of Kate and her Mulberry bag after the jump. The Willow Tote won’t be available in stores for about six months, but you can shop Mulberry via Net-a-Porter.
