LFW 2013: So Irresistible

41 comments
This weekend is the start of London Fashion Week for Fall 2013. But we are not quite ready yet for Fall. We would like to have some Spring inspiration now and add some colour into our winter days.  Last Spring, I was in London for a vacation. During a walk along Brompton Road, I stopped by the Mulberry store to check out their bags. I discovered  Mulberry's colourful and fun window displays with some inflated African Safari animals and featuring their iconic Mulberry Bags in bright spring colours.  Here are some fun photos during my lovely walk in one of my favourite cities, London. 
Yellow Bayswater bag and Green Lily bag.

Actually, the Mulberry brand was not love at first sight for me. I only started to like their Alexa Bag due to my cousin who showed her bag to me. Beforehand, I didn't like the double buckle closures on the front of the bag and the turn lock closure which I thought would make it hard to open the bag. I like bags that are easy to open. I discovered through my cousin's Alexa bag that those double buckle straps could be opened and closed through the magnetic snaps instead of manually pulling and pushing. The bag turned out is very functional and easy to open. Mulberry is now one of my favourite luxury brands.
Here are the iconic Bayswater bags.

Mulberry's Creative Director is Emma Hill. For the past years, she has placed the Mulberry brand into one of the best British Fashion Luxury Brands in the World. Mulberry shows the best in British craftsmanship and dedication to high quality and design. The Mulberry design is very classic and timeless. Their fashion shows are fun including dogs dressed in Mulberry dog coats walking down their runways too. The new CEO of Mulberry is Bruno Guillon, who was formerly with Hermes. It would be interesting to see the upcoming collaborations between Bruno and Emma for Mulberry.

Bayswater Bag in Green. Isn't that a lovely Green colour?
A Bag Reveal... Which one did I buy?  I ended up purchasing a Mulberry bag from Harrods. They wrapped my bag and packaged it nicely in this huge brown bag and decorated it with ribbons and with Ding Dong. So whimsical. Mulberry is a brand that knows how to have fun. 
I purchased the Oversized Alexa Bag named after the very chic British TV Presenter, Alexa Chung. The bag has a detachable shoulder strap and can also be carried by hand. This dark grey colour came out last Spring. It has gunmetal toned hardware. The leather is so soft. Very spacious inside. It is perfect for traveling. I find the Oversized Alexa quite big for everyday though. The regular sized Alexa Bag is perfect for everyday and on weekends.  So which Mulberry Bag is your favourite?

Thank You to everyone for their thoughtful comments about my dearest Barkley. That's life. I have to move on, one step at a time.


May you all have a wonderful weekend.

  5. Lovely photos - the zebras are fab! For some reason, I'm getting into animal print this year and I never have before. hmmn?!

    Oh that green Mulberry purse is divine, I hadn't heard of Mulberry until I saw Kate carrying with a navy tote on her Canada trip 2 years ago. You made a splendid purchase! You'll have it for years, it's a keeper.

    1. Isn't their windows so much fun! Animal prints are very chic. Go for it. The Duchess is doing a good job so far in her fashion choices especially in promoting British brands. I enjoy my Mulberry bag very much. Thank you.

  6. I remember these windows last Spring. I wonder what happens to all the wonderful props from these campaigns. The 'ding-dong' on your bag relates to the catchphrase Leslie Phillips has whenever he sees a foxy lady!

    1. Oh Paul, I wonder too because I wanted to bring home one of the cute inflatable zebras. Wow, so Mulberry thinks I'm a "foxy lady." That's so cool! I didn't know that's what 'ding-dong' meant. Thanks for letting me know. :)

  15. You already know from my recent bag post that Mulberry is my favourite luxury brand so I loved seeing your photos. Your Alexa is lovely and perfect for travelling and the new Willow in the last picture in neutral is another great versatile style and spring colour.
