This bag is red. I mean shockingly, bright, bold, in-your-face red. The kind of red that is a bit hard to wear. I am always seeing women that rock true red lipstick and make it look perfectly gorgeous. Let me be honest, I am not one of those women. Red lipstick looks scary on me. It just doesn’t seem to flow. And I am not sure I could pull off a truly red bag. But once Net-A-Porter showed the red Mulberry Bayswater with a summery outfit, it worked perfectly and I thought just for a second, ‘Hey, that could be me’. (more…)

Are you part of the Apple revolution? Vlad and I still have one PC in our home/office but otherwise we have Apple products taking over each room of the house. And while you may not have one of their computers, the iPod and iPhone truly did change the way we listen to music and use cellphones. But how do you protect your precious products?

If you are like us, you buy a simple case at the Apple store (they truly do offer many options), and go on your way. Many design houses have come up with options (like Louis Vuitton for the iPad) for those of us who do not want to settle for simple and usable options rather we prefer fashionable and usable options. Mulberry created an entire line of products for Apple, from messenger bags to pouches to cases. (more…)

Heading to Coachella this weekend? No? Me neither. But maybe one or two of you are lucky enough to make the hipster pilgrimage out to Indio, California for the annual indie music festival that keeps getting less indie by the year. Or maybe you’re saving your airline miles for a future summer festival – maybe Bonnaroo in Manchester, Tennessee or Lollapalooza in Chicago? (The latter would be my pick since Lady Gaga is headlining.)

No matter what kind of outdoor events you’re attending this summer, from music festivals to baseball games, you’re going to need to bring a handbag of some sort. Crossbody bags are undoubtedly your best bet because they’re hands-free and convenient, but choosing one to use at an all-day event can be tricky. Too small, and you’re trying to stuff way too many things in to it; too big, and it’s a burden to carry around for an extended period of time, particularly in summer heat. Luckily, we’ve done all the legwork for you and found three perfect crossbodies that will satisfy any (ok, almost any) budget. (more…)

The Mulberry Alexa has taken the handbag loving fashion world by storm. The shape of this bag, similar to the PS1, is the new cool. Laid-back, school-bag look is all the rage and we are loving it. You know why? It is casual without being sloppy and chic without being trendy. And then there is Alexa Chung, whom the bag is named after. Let’s face it, Alexa Chung is totally cool and stylish and has a really awesome bag named after her. Cue jealousy. (more…)

I want to like the Mulberry Cheetah Haircalf Bayswater Tote so badly. I love questionably tacky things, alternative-color animal print, and 80s revival. I love a statement bag that will make everyone look twice. I love being That Girl that will carry or wear stuff that some people don’t understand.

Despite all of that, I just can’t get on board with what’s going on here. The idea of magenta cheetah print is not necessarily one to which I’m opposed (in fact, I rather like it), but the execution on this bag is just not what I would expect from the fine folks at Mulberry. (more…)

Mulberry put on their Fall 2010 show in both NYC and London. The color palette was not muted neutrals like many other shows we saw, rather bold jewel toned colors, which was a welcomed change to many other shows we saw. The Mulberry show was playful and youthful, while still retaining a fashionable upper hand.

I was checking all of the photos and came across my favorite look from the show. This look appeals to me in every way possible. (more…)

Back in September when the first sighting of Alexa Chung with her namesake bag, the Mulberry Alexa, surfaced, Purse Forum members began discussing the similarity between it and the Proenza Schouler PS1. It makes sense that they did, because there are definite similarities in the design. In fact, once the Mulberry Alexa started to show up online, the main buzz surrounded the likeness between the two.

Let’s take a closer look to see what the two bags have in common and what is different, shall we? (more…)

Last week Amanda formally introduced you to the Mulberry Alexa, a sought design from Mulberry named after Alexa Chung. The Alexa has been popping up in a slew of different sites and now Net A Porter is carrying the Alexa in a bright yellow leather along with a pink leopard print Alexa clutch. (more…)

The era of the all-encompassing It Bag has mostly come and gone, and with the breadth of designer possibilities available, more individualized trends usually rule the day. That is, of course, unless we’re talking about the Mulberry Alexa Satchel. If It Bags still exist, it absolutely deserves the moniker.

Named after It Girl Alexa Chung, this little number has been on the minds of fashionistas both in the US and across the pond since we initially saw Chung wearing it months and months ago. And really, is there a better way to attract attention for your new bag than by naming it after a rising star and then giving her one to carry everywhere? I think not. (more…)

I saw quite a few people in NYC rocking the Mulberry Suede Bayswater bag. And each time I saw it I fell in love with it more. Everyone was carrying the grey version (color officially is sludge). What I did not know is that Mulberry offers four glorious suede colors in their suede croc print Baywater. And the problem for me is that I love them all! (more…)
