Mulberry Postman’s Lock Leather Bag, $1200 via Net-a-Porter.
As I’ve mentioned ad nauseum, I’m a little obsessed with hands-free bags at the moment. Major lifestyle changes require careful accessories planning, no matter how silly that sounds, and my collection needs a few more light, compact crossbodies like the Mulberry Postman’s Lock Leather Bag as soon as possible. This bag is already a strong contender for my affections because of the separate pocket on the front – perfect for easy cell phone access.
We all know that I’d want a different color, of course, because of my deep-seated aversion to tan. I’d also prefer a few functional changes: If the top zippers could extend a bit further down the sides of the bag for a wider opening, that would be much appreciated, as would a lighter lining. My keys always manage to slide to the bottom, no matter how small a bag might be, and beige canvas instead of chocolate brown makes a world of difference. Mulberry is headed in the right direction with this design, and it’s an aesthetic winner for sure. Buy through Net-a-Porter for $1200.
