Mulberry Clipper Leather Holdall, $1495 via Mr. Porter

Every time I see the Mulberry Clipper Leather Holdall, I sigh a little bit. It’s both a happy and a sad sigh – happy because the bag is both functional and simply gorgeous, sad because I don’t have one in my closet right now. And if I did, I think I’d probably take it out to pet it every now and then, even if I weren’t planning on a weekend away.

But with a travel bag like this, I think I’d be motivated to take more trips, which is why I’ve chosen it for the week’s Man Bag Monday. That’s right, Mulberry technically categorizes this weekender as a bag for its male customers, but I think it’s clearly unisex. And because I’m the one with the blog-posting capabilities, what I say, goes around here. (more…)

Kate Middleton carries the Mulberry Polly Push Lock Satchel and Anya Hindmarch Fan Straw Clutch

These days, the best way for a piece of clothing to become scarce is for Kate Middleton (although that’s probably not her last name anymore, right?) to wear it publically. The Internet has been reveling in a deluge of the Duchess’s outfits while she’s touring Canada with Prince William, and as always, she’s been careful to choose pieces that both recognize her British roots and acknowledge the theme of whatever event she’s attending at the moment. Naturally, what we’re interested in are her accessories, and all of Kate’s notable bags thus far have been British: the Mulberry Polly Push Lock Satchel and the Anya Hindmarch Fan Straw Clutch.

Via Fashionista.com, we get a first look at the Mulberry Fall 2011 ad campaign, shot by Tim Walker and starring Julia Saner. I always find ad campaigns fascinating because they give us a more artistic look into how a designer views a collection than a moving runway show sometimes allows, and these photos are an excellent example of that insight.

With oversized animals and giant cracked eggs and tree branches everywhere, the visual impact of the campaign might be best described as a British Heritage acid trip. Oddly, that might also be the perfect way to describe the Mulberry aesthetic; the brand specializes in taking what’s expected of a London leather goods label and twisting it until it appeals to a younger, edgier audience. Check out the entire campaign after the jump. (more…)

I’m going to let you guys in on a little secret that you’ve probably already figured out about me, if you’re a regular reader: I was never a prep. Sure, I dabbled in it in middle school when we all went through the phase where we tried our damnedest to look like everyone else, but by age 13 I was putting ill-advised burgundy streaks in my hair and listening to punk. If you know me, you know that I never really grew out of the “putting ill-advised things in my hair” phase.

But because trends are endlessly shifting and the lines between “looks” are getting blurrier by the day, I no longer feel the kind of automatic resistance to preppy, classic designs like the Mulberry Polly Push Bags that I likely would have felt a few years ago. As long as I could get one that’s not brown, that is. A distaste for brown is another thing that I’ve yet to outgrow. (more…)

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. (more…)

This past Saturday, I found myself on a bit of a walkabout. New York was rainy and grey all of last week, but for a few hours on Saturday afternoon, the sun shone brightly and the air was warm and it felt wrong not to be outside. Twenty blocks later, I looked up and saw that I was passing by the Upper East Side Mulberry boutique and couldn’t help but take a look inside. And that’s where I saw the Mulberry Alexa Bag in this brilliant green; it very nearly came home with me. (more…)

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. (more…)

Since the handbag fame of the Mulberry Alexa, there have been a few other bags that have made a name for the brand but none of them have ever come close to the Alexa craze. I am sure Mulberry aims to change that with their new Taylor collection.

The Fall 2011 collection for Mulberry found inspiration in the Great British countryside, bustling hedgerows and effortless English glamour. The Taylor collection delivers a brand new style that feels reminiscent of heritage shapes. (more…)

Mulberry’s Lily Bag was an instant hit. There was nothing overly inventive about the design, but the design just works. And the price, compared to many other shoulder bags, is fairly reasonable.

For Spring 2011 Mulberry decided to give us an option of the Lily that is not only much more expensive but also blinged out. Yes, I just used the word bling because it is so fitting in the case of the Mulberry Jewelled Lily. (more…)

Fashion Month is half complete right now. As much as we are checking the fashion week shows to dish on the upcoming trends, we are also loving people-watching those who attend the shows. One of the must have bags of the moment is the Mulberry Tillie.

Following the huge success of the Alexa, Mulberry decided to follow up with the Tillie. The debate has ensued whether or not the Tillie is as covetable as the Alexa. (more…)
