Oprah Winfrey carries a white Mulberry Willow Tote in NYC (5)

IT’S OPRAH! Oprah has been making the press rounds over the past week, giving interviews to networks and magazines which she does not own willy-nilly, which is rare for Oprah. Here she is leaving the CBS Morning Show studios, where she was promoting her new movie, Lee Daniels’ The Butler, carrying a lovely white leather Mulberry Willow Tote. Fun fact: that envelope front pocket detaches to become a clutch! Thus the purpose of the seemingly extraneous yet very functional zippers, which give it a nice contemporary pop. You can get Oprah’s bag in black for $2,600 at Net-a-Porter.

As you probably know, Mulberry bags are generally prized by young, twiggy British “It” Girls – the Alexa Chungs of the world, and those who want to dress like them. But while Oprah may stand a tad outside of Mulberry’s most visible demographic, the Willow is a great choice for her, as it’s definitely one of the brand’s most refined styles. It’s polished and neutral enough to go with practically any look.

    So basically your point is that Oprah is too fat to carry a Mulberry bag? Cool.

    I love this bag and wanted one until I tried it on in person. It’s rather heavy, but gorgeous nonetheless.

    Oh, Emily. You still have so much to learn. Whose demographic do YOU represent? And when did the Purse Blog decide that vaguely ageist, racist commentary was an OK thing for its writers to offer up? Where are the editors? Very disappointed.

      Her editor is right here, and if you look at the people who Mulberry goes out of its way to get their bags to, Oprah doesn’t fit the customer that the brand clearly has in mind. I wouldn’t necessarily fit the demographic either. Neither would Barbara Walters. Mulberry has carved out a very narrow slice of celebrity fandom for itself, and calling out those corporate decisions that the company has clearly made isn’t a commentary on whether we necessarily endorse those decisions.

    Your demographic comments are odd. Go to London, sit down on the tube, look around. All shapes and sizes of women carry Mulberry. I do not think it odd that Oprah, me or even my next door neighbour carry this brand.
