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.

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 £350 clutch is now sold out on the designer’s website.

Net-a-Porter still has the Mulberry Polly Push Lock Tote in stock, priced at $1400.

    Love her style. And really, Fascinators pretty much only look good on Brits, I think. (Although I could kinda see Teresa Guidice sporting one in leopard print.)

    I got up at 3 AM CST to watch the Royal Wedding, so yes, I like Kate! She gives Mulberry a much better image than its weirdo advertising campaign. Of course she has such a nice figure she could make a potato sack look good. I look forward to seeing more of her clothing and accessory choices (or those of her “handlers”).

  • Kat

    Technically she no longer has a surname. I think she’s lovely but I@m afraid she seems to have gotten too skinny recently.

    She used to tote around Prada and Tod’s, I guess as a royal it’s now part of her job to carry or wear more British designers.


  • Ashleyg

    I like “Catherine” but she needs to grow her hips back IMO- very pretty but too thin. The Mulberry looks kind of old lady to me and not in the good old royal lady kind of way.

  • Chris

    I thought the straw clutch and the white dress and the red fascinator were an odd combination. They do not really go well together.
    I love her Mulberry Tote though.

  • goldChanel

    She’s very elegant and most of her handbags reflects her sophisticated style.

  • 19yearslater

    That hat proves she is fitting into British Royal life swimmingly XD

  • chloehandbags

    I don’t really understand the whole obsession with royals, or the desire to wear what they wear, TBH?

    Still, I’m all for the buy British thing, but if you restrict yourself too much to that, especially if it all has to be current season, you may end-up without a style of your own and with possible mis-match issues.

    Personally, I’d extend buy British, to also buying a bit of European and North American and not just current season, but also past season and vintage.

    I think the most important thing is to avoid anything that was made in a sweatshop, or by people on unfairly low wages.

    Incidentally, I like the shape of the clutch – I have a similar shaped (only upside-down!) Tom Ford for YSL.

    The Mulberry bag leaves me cold, though, personally; it looks kind of thrown together, to me?

  • Stylista

    Sigh, she looks so beautiful in everything. I love her style. Nothing too overtly trendy…just classic, timeless and simple. I’d love to look half as good as she does in the future.


  • Demi

    I love her style! She’s elegant, classy and has a nice taste in clothes (and men)!!!

  • sally
