New Mulberry Roxanne Style?

  1. I was at the Neiman Marcus in Las Vegas today and saw some Mulberry Roxanne bags on display. For some of the bags, the side flaps with the "D" rings were covered in leather instead of raw suede. Also, is there supposed to be a serial number on the back of the metal label in the interior? (I know that Mulberry's aren't supposed to have serial numbers) Are these new features of the Mulberry Roxanne bags? This is the closest picture I could find that shows what the side flap of the Neiman Marcus bag looked like . . .

    I was a bit alarmed when I saw this because I know that side flaps covered in leather are a telltale sign of fake Mulberry bags. Shouldn't real Mulberry Roxanne bags have suede side flaps that look like this . . .

    Could someone please verify this for me? I'm concerned that maybe someone did a switch at NM!!:shocked:
     
  2. Older bags have leather and not raw suede, my friend bought one of the first Rxannes (in a boutique) and has leather instead of suede
