Hooray! The sun has eventually arrived and the blossom has well and truly bloomed. But, before we start gadding about like a spring lamb, there are a few pressing questions to consider. And number one on our list pertains to our accessory arsenal: which bag do we choose to stash our spring essentials?
Well, like an answer to every accessory prayer (there have been many) we’ve ever uttered, along comes Mulberry with yet another showstopper of a collection, packed full with investment buys to make us swoon.
Inspired by long, lazy summer days spent in English country gardens, Mulberry’s SS15 offering is brimming with British blooms, vivid hues and glorious textures, all sewn up in an exciting array of new and classic shapes.
Just in case you’re looking to make a splurge, we’ve narrowed down our favourite styles from the collection, guaranteed to take your entire outfit from humble to haute in but a second. Peruse at your leisure, and don’t blame us if your wish list is longer than your arm…
Taking its name from the delphinium flower, the Delphie bag is one of Mulberry’s newest creations. This perfectly proportioned miniature version with its woven leather front may be pricey, but it can be flipped over to reveal a contrasting leather look. So essentially that’s two bags for the price of one. And that’s just good maths right?
With its classic postman’s lock, the Lily has been a firm favourite with the fash pack (Alexa et al) for a good few seasons now, and this mini version in new colour Camomile is sure to become just as popular. The perfect size for all our essentials, wear with a ditzy tea dress for a romantic spring look.
Don’t be frightened to ditch the satchel in favour of an elegant clutch to carry all your daytime basics. This Campden clutch is super chic, and like the Delphie, the style can be flipped over to create a completely different look in another colour, as and when you fancy. What’s not to love?
We couldn’t leave out the Cara Delevingne bag, could we? This little beauty is sure to be topping a lot of lust lists in the coming weeks, although we like to think we saw it first! It’s a perfect little slice of Cara D style in quilted taupe nappa leather, and its multi-strap options means it’s fifty shades of practical. We LOVE.
You can’t ever beat a classic purse, and a Mulberry one is like the Rolls-Royce of the accessory world. We’re loving this timeless French purse in Sea Blue because not only will it look super cute peeking up at us from the depths of our handbag, it can also double as a mini clutch for evening wear.
A box tote has been championed by many brands in the last few years, and Mulberry’s own offering, the Arundel Tote, will surely achieve ‘It’ bag status in no time. Sleek and modern, this bag bridges the gap between chic and practicality. Plus, this Jungle Green colour option is simply stunning.
