Leopard print never really goes out of style. But at times it comes back in style with power and right now is one of those times. Every designer is showing leopard print right now and I, for one, am loving it. I am a huge fan of leopard print accessories. Give me a bag or shoe with a great animal print and I am a happy fashionista. I may not be as daring as Rihanna in her Dolce & Gabbana get up, but I am all about the accessories (clearly).

Mulberry wants to get on our radar with the Mulberry Lily Leopard Print Shoulder Bag. This red suede shoulder bag showcases metallic red leopard print. The question is, does it pass the test?


My answer is kind-of; I kind-of dig this bag and I kind-of don’t. You see, paired with an outfit like styled on Net A Porter, it works well. A true red bag adds a statement color to an outfit and having the slight, but not overly gaudy, leopard print is a nice touch. Making this Mulberry bag much larger would end up with the final product being too in-your-face. The silver-tone hardware is the perfect choice, gold would surely look tacky with this bag. And the adjustable chain and leather strap (very Chanel-esque), is a nice touch.

Speaking of Chanel, this bag resembles a Chanel bag quite a bit. There is a fold-over flap with a twist lock fastening as well. I’m happy to see more leopard print and more varieties of it. We all expect the typical leopard print colors, but red is a welcomed change. Buy through Net A Porter for $695.

    Wow, I’m surprised I like it, I’ve never been into animal prints, but this bag is lovely, the color of the bag and the color of the print are super. I love it.

    I love. LOVE. this bag. Love it. It’s kind of tacky in juuuuust the right sort of way. I was going to write about it tomorrow if no one else did.

    I am surprised that I like this as much as I do–the color is great and makes the leopard print feel fresh. Nice job!

    I think the only thing I would want differently is a longer shoulder strap… then it would be perfect!

    This is one of the occasions where I usually would not give the handbag a second glance – but the whole outfit is so cute, the model looks lovely and this Mulberry handbag is just perfect. I have to admit, I would not buy this handbag, for a somewhat risky handbag, it is too pricey. However, I have a very red handbag, and now I have a new idea how to wear it. So, thank you, Purseblog. :-)

    I don’t usually like leopard print anything, but for some reason I love this bag. The color is to die for, Mulberry mastered it perfectly. The print doesn’t look like the typical leopard print which I like it can look like little circles or clouds of different colors. The silver hardware was the best option for this bag using gold would make it look cheap and tacky.
