Mulberry Small Bayswater, $1100 via Net-a-Porter
Ever since the launch of the Alexa, Mulberry has been on a roll. With the company’s penchant for punched-up basics that don’t break the bank quite as badly as some of the similarly covetable handbags on the market, Mulberry has found themselves uniquely well-positioned with a group of young, stylish, upwardly mobile customers that can’t get enough of their bags.
And what do young, stylish, upwardly mobile customers want lately? Crossbodies. Enter the Mulberry Small Bayswater, a slightly more diminutive version of the Mulberry classic that offers a carrying option that no other Bayswater has included thus far.
When Mulberry says “small,” they don’t really mean all that small. The bag measures up at a similar size to the Proenza Schouler Medium PS1, which makes it great to wear across the body; not too bulky, but still big enough to easily carry whatever you may need for an average day. This smaller version of the Bayswater still looks polished and classic when carries in the crook of the arm, too. You really can have it both ways. Buy through Net-a-Porter for $1100.
