Every year, resort collections spring up at the beginning of summer like an oasis in the dessert. The fashion industry sometimes seems to come to a near-grinding halt during the warmer months while industry heavyweights are off sunning themselves in St. Barths, but the unorganized and sporadic resort show season seems to send us a new collection every time we begin to think that perhaps we’ll never write another interesting post again.

This time, Mulberry Resort 2012 is one of our saviors, and they’ve actually released stock images of their bags, which is something of a resort rarity. Most brands save their big reveals for the full spring and fall collections, but this mid-season group offers several covetable bags, particularly the ivory faux python Alexa and the green-and-black leopard tote, which would be perfect for weekend shopping. More pictures after the jump.

    I like the color on the first bag, but the gold plate is a little off putting.
    I also like the last one in brown. The rest are a little blah.

    OH MY GAWD
    Rose gold! I love rose gold! the combination with the beautiful ivory and the material…gah! It’s like a dream! A wonderful, ladurée feeling-ish, dream! Frankly, this is my favorite alexa so far!

    I love 5 and 6! I’m torn as to which one is more awesome! I don’t own any Mulberry bags, I think I need to rectify this.

    What a pretty collection! Even though the choice in prints is different, the colors keep it simple and classic instead of overly quirky. Nice job Mulberry, that Alexa is just so cool.

    I love #5, but I haven’t yet forgiven Mulberry for discontinuing Roxanne. It’s going to take more than a #5 and some rose gold to make up with me.
