I'm just loving my first Mulberry - bought at Liberty of London last week - I gasped when I saw her! We stateside (as in US) gals do not get much of an opportunity to see the brand and I love the classic look of the Bayswater but have been concerned about the size as well as the weight of the bag (as mentioned on many posts). Alas, a new Bloomies opened up nearby and I saw the giraffe design and was shocked at how light the bag was and the SA mentioned something about a new design, etc. So - I knew I had to see them IRL in London. The following details are for those that are not so familiar w/the brand and are just my observations - if I have erred - please correct for those that are in the "know": This version is tumbled leather, so I think it's different from the natural leather. There is a very distinct grain pattern and the leather is pliable and soft, but NOT ultra soft (like Bulga). The hardware is polished, not matte like in the oak, chocolate or black Bayswater. There is a fabric lining, imprinted w/the Mulberry logo. I think this helps w/the lightness of the bag. Either the earlier models were made out of thicker leather and were not lined OR they were lined in suede, I cannot tell from the photos that were posted by others. There is only one zippered compartment inside. No other pockets. Not the best for organization, but there are times one sacrifices organization for style. I think other models have more internal pockets - again - this would add to the weight of the bag. As happens with lots of double strap shoulder bags - the straps do not stay on my shoulders all the time, but hey - it's manageable. Hope you enjoy the photos - the color is absolutely gorgeous!
