Mulberry Creased Patent Mitzy  Mulberry Mitzy Hobo

After I first posted about the Mulberry Creased Patent Mitzy Hobo the other day, Megs received an email from Jackie at Mulberry with a link to check out the bag on their website to show that the bag is, indeed, slouchy and wonderful. And as you can see above, it is! The patent does appear to slouch quite nicely, and her assertion that ShopBop overstuffed the bag on their website does indeed seem true (and hobos get awkward-looking quickly when overstuffed). What I see above is a far lovelier bag than I wrote about yesterday, and while I still don’t adore the color, it looks a lot better here than it does in the previous photo, which appeared to have been washed out by the camera flash. So I take back all the mean things I said about how this bag was going to poke everyone in the armpit. Because it’s not.

I’ve also included a shot from their website of the regular leather Mulberry Mitzy Hobo, because I’m in love. It’s gorgeous. The leather looks thick and soft and fantastic, and I love the shape and the slouch. I owned a Mulberry bag a while back, and the leather on that one was awesome, and this one looks even better. I wish more places in Georgia carried the brand because there’s a lot of bags on their site that I have never seen before, and now I really want to scope them out in person. I’ve always been a casual Mulberry fan in the past, but I’m starting to take a more active interest. Buy through ShopBop for $695.

    I still am not at all convinced with Mulberry bags. The pictures of the 2 bags above look cheap and I´m not liking the baggy shape. Sorry.

    These pictures look so much better. We are getting this bag in the office to review next week, so I will have a better look for you all then!

    I still really like this bag. I think it looks just right. Never owned a Mulberry and with 700 dollars im thinking i should get one. Plus generally i dont like plaques on a bag but the way Mulberry have done it looks really discreet.

    Wow, that is way slouchier than I thought it could go! Now I think it is really cute!

    I bought this bag today (the brown leather version, not the ugly patent pink one) and I have to say I am super happy with it. The size is great, material is sooooo soft. I’ve been wanting to own a Mulberry for so long and I think this model is good for a couple of years – it’s quite timeless. I don’t like logos but I agree that in this case the plaque looks discrete, as I would expect from Mulberry.

    I think this is a great new slouchy style, very New York style but with Brit attitude. Prefer it in the classic brown and oaky colours.x
