I think sometimes I’m secretly obsessed with Johnny Coca’s Mulberry, because every other day you’ll find me stalking their online site to see if anything new came out. While part of me wants him to succeed (we all want to support the underdog, right?), the other part of me is just wondering if he is just going to import whatever he’s done at Céline wholesale to Mulberry because anything that looks like it’s from the former will sell anyway, right?
So far the report card is pretty even either way though, with the Clifton looking like the Trio, while the Maple is, in my honest opinion, a Mulberry classic in the making. And today we’ve got the Winsley, which I’m still trying to put my finger on.
Measuring some 28 cm by 19 cm, the easiest (and laziest) way to describe it is just to simply call it a fat Trio, with 3 zip compartments placed back to back, the front and back compartments larger than the one in the middle. The sides also taper out as you get to the bottom (hence the fat name-calling bit), but you know what I mean.
Worn over the shoulder or across the body by way of its adjustable sling, it’s actually quite pretty and pretty functional as well, ‘safe’ enough for work without bordering on the OL bit. Priced at GBP995, it comes in Pebbled Lamb in Black (shown above), as well as in smooth calfskin in Black, Burgundy and Clay.
Buy online via Mulberry, and while you’re there, do check out the other bag I’m quite obsessed about, the F/W16 Buckle Satchel for mens. Quite the love.
