  1. Many handbag lovers at some point in their life consider buying an animal print bag. But I think most of us reconsider--or chicken out, lol. What do you think about this Mulberry Bayswater animal print bag? Would you wear it?

    (Pic from Nordstrom. It's made of calf hair.)

  2. Sorry but I hate it - it looks fake somehow!:push:
  3. It's funny, but I would never wear it
  4. Don't apologize. I just thought it would be fun to post this pic and read everyone's opinion. :yes: I'm not necessarily considering buying it... I'm not quite sure what I think.
  5. I have never seen this before - its interesting to see, Mulberry are certainly getting more 'creative' :yes:
  6. For an animal print bag, its sort of "tame" actually. :p The Bayswater style is simple and the pattern itself is kind of subdued; not too outrageous compared to some over-the-top animal prints I've seen.
  7. Oh, and did I mention its $1,995???? There are a lot of other $2,000 handbags I'd rather have before this one, to be sure. But I MIGHT wear this.
  8. I'm in the minority, but I really like it! I have a tooled Bayswater and it's a great bag.

    However, would I buy it? Don't think so...calf hair is too fragile and for that price it would have to be a bag I put in heavy everyday rotation!
  9. Here are some other leopard-print bags currently on the market...

  10. I kind of like the combination of the clean and classic bayswater with the leopard pattern - I find it an impossible combo, but fun. Would never wear it myself, but it might be right for someone else. I can picture this bag together with a super sleek black suit, it would be too much with jeans or black leather, imo.
  11. I think if you have money to burn go for it, otherwise I feel that this animal print has a very limited trend life.

    I consider the Bayswater a classic so it's kind of an oxymoron to say "timeless trend" or "classical trend" LOL
  12. Well said. I think that appeals to me too.
  13. Love it. Wouldn't buy it, own it or been seen out with it BUT it's a great bag for those who it would suit. Ladies who lunch? Fashionista's? Trendy city dwellers? I think it takes Mulberry to a completely new customer, as does this season's purple patent leather. Not for all but that said, Mulberry Darwin might be a bit too tame for the leopard lovers!
  14. Mulberry is really having more trendy looks this season. More colors, new materials etc. I'm big fan of basic oak darwin, but I can understand why they are doing this.

    So, ok bag and would look great with right outfit. But not really my piece of cake :yes:
  15. Not for me. I think it looks tacky.
