The logo-lovers are not in Spain (that is except for one brand that I will go into detail about after this trip). As I walk the streets of Madrid, Barcelona, and Valencia, I see mostly plain leather bags. Nothing flashy, and the lack of flashiness has me walking disturbingly close to some women to check out the designer of their bag. I find it fascinating to see different trends in handbags in different parts of the world. Today I saw about five women carrying Mulberry, which is obviously a well-loved brand in England as well as other countries. I saw a new design on this incredibly fashionable woman leaving Corte Ingles today, and it just happened to be on Net A Porter today too! The Mulberry Jody Tote is roomy, lacks logos, and has the simple black bag appeal. The leather on many Mulberry bags is sturdier, which at times can be heavier, but is part of the appeal. The gold hardware adds a sophisticated touch and the signature postman’s lock closure is found on the front. There is a zip across top, double handles, and press stud fastenings at the sides. This all adds up to make this bag great for traveling, which is top on my list right now. Just under $1000 via Net A Porter.
