Mulberry, the British luxury brand and the largest manufacturer of leather goods in the UK, was founded by Roger Saul in 1971. Its roots stem from an unflinching faith in brilliant quality and ageless design! If we were to actually walk into Mulberry’s bag-producing factories, we would be smitten seeing its craftsmen work their magic and create masterpieces that require tireless efforts. From cuts to construction, the very fact that each handbag is handcrafted to perfection makes them more valuable!
Amongst many of Mulberry’s classic creations such as the Alexa, Daria and the Lily, this week we have chosen the Bayswater as our Bag of the Week. Named after an upmarket area of London, the bag was first launched in 2002 under the expertise and creative direction of Nicholas Knightly. It is quintessentially British and amalgamates a rich heritage and modernity in equal proportions.
The Bag in Detail:
A lot goes into making a Bayswater, the toughest part being skiving and inking the edges. This satchel is no exception, its simplicity and sophisticated appeal resonate with modern women. Skillfully crafted from croc-embossed leather, it impresses with its brown hue, one of the significant colours of the oak, tan and oxblood that the brand is synonymous with. Neatly stitched in a sturdy silhouette, it is held by dual top handles that carry an attached clochette bearing the brand’s iconic ‘tree’ logo. It exhibits a front flap that is detailed with the signature Postman lock in gold-tone and is endowed with a capacious suede interior that boasts of a main compartment along with a zip pocket and two slip pockets. It is protected by metal studs at the bottom and will continue to charm you every time you carry it!
Having enshrined its name in the list of exclusive luxury handbags and gracing the front rows of numerous fashion weeks, the Bayswater now waits to adorn your arm! Luxuriate in our collection of Mulberry Bayswater bags here.
