Introducing the Harriet – Mulberry’s New Collection!
The latest Mulberry collection has just been released! Yes, the Harriet is the latest name on everyone’s lips and the new bag to fall in love with.
This season, Mulberry has turned to a softly structured shape with a briefcase inspired clasp to adorn your arms. It’s the ultimate in easy styling and multi-wear options, with the long term wearability we’ve now come to expect from Emma Hill and the rest of the gang at the brand’s headquarters.
It already has quite the celebrity following – Olivia Palermo, Blake Lively and Kate Bosworth have already been spotted with their Harriets in tow. And as the collection boasts a number of shapes and sizes, it begs the question – what Harriet will you wear?
One of my favourites is the Clutch Wallet in Pebbled Beige. It’s a classic piece that I know would go back to again and again, and could be slung on with any outfit to add immediate sophistication. The long chain is pale gold and can be doubled-over for a shorter strap. And at Â£350, it’s certainly one of the more reasonably priced options!
Another style that I feel my wardrobe would really benefit from is the Tote in Nightshade Blue. This boxier style is roomy – and therefore perfect for throwing in your day-to-day bits – but in true Mulberry style adds a touch of luxury. The shorter handles are perfect for carrying in the crook of your arm, while the rich glossy finish and rose gold detailing really set off the look. This bag sits at the other end of the price scale at Â£950.
And for nothing except pure unadulterated pleasure, the Marshmellow White Spotted Haircalf Tote just has to make an appearance. It’s the same shape as the Nightshade Blue, but in a stunning leopard print calfskin. It’s bold, outrageous and at Â£2,500, a piece that I would have a hard time justifying even if I had the money. Does that matter though? It’s fabulous and I desperately want one.
The Harriet family consists of five other styles all ranging from Â£350 – Â£950, and can be found in Black Glossy Buffalo leather and Summer Khaki spongy patent, all featuring the gold clasp and detailing. They will be available from 1 January 2012 from Mulberry.com… make it a New Year’s resolution to get your hands on one of these It-bags!
