Mulberry icons are those bags that are continually recognised for their timeless appeal and understated elegance. Our leather craft heritage is apparent in their signature detailing, whether in the leatherwork or hardware, with plaited leather, belted straps, padlocks and the iconic postman’s lock closure.
The Bayswater, nearly ten years old, is considered a Mulberry sale uk classic, available in a myriad of colours each season, with complementary accessories as part of its collection. The Bayswater has also formed the basis for bags created since then, including the Alexa, Del Rey and Lily, who all take the Bayswater’s signature postman’s lock and crafted leather detailing on very different silhouettes. The plaited handle of the Alexa, and the woven leather and chain strap on the Lily, both display the intricate handwork that goes into making a Mulberry bag.
The Bayswater is a much-loved style, with recognisable design signatures and an understated practicality. Outwardly simple, with no external pockets, inside the Bayswater has belted straps to adjust the compartment size, and can hold A4 documents and folders, and small laptops and technology accessories. The iconic postman’s lock secures a leather flap closure, and two top handles can be worn on the shoulder or carried in the crook of the arm. The Bayswater can be adapted to many situations and occasions, and we welcome customers into our stores every day to discuss how it can work for them.
It takes a team of people time, attention to detail and considerable skill to make a Bayswater. From checking the leather for minor imperfections, to creating each panel, stitching and compiling the bag’s parts into the finished product, at each stage quality and care is paramount.
Have you gorgeous dolls seen the latest Mulberry fall 2013 collection showcased at London Fashion Week? We had a look and totally loved it! Why? Because it's filled with a wide range of uber-stylish piece and a versatile color palette featuring mostly black, white and brown. Ah, and that traditional tweed and oh-so-cool silhouettes!
"Jane How [stylist] started off playing around with the looks and we thought it looked really good. We've made trousers the new tights," said creative director Emma Hill backstage after the show. "In the Nineties we were both rocking that look the first time round so we had a good laugh over it."
The Mulberry fall 2013 collection included loads of tweed and checks. Pretty cool, isn't it? Modern and traditional were blended in a unique way resulting in some really voguish goodies with a cheerful, fun yet chic feeling! “There’s still a cheeky English humor with the woodland animal prints, but it’s more grown-up, I’m more grown-up,” Emma Hill said.
Key pieces in the latest Mulberry collection for the upcoming cold-weather season? Definitely outerwear! Trust us, those beauties don't just look comfy but extremely fashionable as well! Just have a nosey and see it for yourself! There were rich textures, leather and tweed used in order to create pieces that can take us through awfully chilly days in style. So, imagine coats of brown and green tweed plaid and cozy jackets for a wow-worthy appearance!
Okay, so besides an array of outerwear pieces, the Mulberry collection also featured leather tunics with bell sleeves and peplums, cropped flared pants, skater skirts, oversized puff sleeves, mohair jumpers, elbow length leather gloves, chunky heels, and the vintage-inspired maxi doctor's bag as the ultimate accessory. Still, the star seems to remain Max the poodle. "He kept running off to look at himself during the fittings the other night,'' Emma Hill said.
