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.
As a proof of concept, it’s already become difficult to locate either of these bags, although Net-a-Porter had this Mulberry model in stock just days ago. Mulberry still has availability of the bag via its website for $1300, but I imagine that will be short-lived. If you’d prefer the Anya Hindmarch clutch, we’re sad to report that Â£350 clutch is now sold out on the designer’s website.
