Just noticed them on mulberry.com .....I really like the little clipper would be fab as hand luggage but just wonder how the alabaster would wear ?
Could you collonil it ?
Has anyone seen one IRL ?

Is is really awful of me to hope they go in the sale ?

Opinions please ( don't be shy ! BTW I'm not bothered by negative comments )

I think it's a cute range. I really like the little messenger.

Do you think the little clipper would be big enough to use as an overnight bag?

I saw the grey tote last week in john lewis & thought it was gorgeous. But nearly £400 for what is essentially a shopper is expensive! Still want one though!

They didn't have the clipper, that would be lovley as an overnight bag if it was big enough.

That's probably a good thing jane - I can't afford any more bags!:smile:

Not for me I'm afraid! I've never been a fan of logos on the outside of bags.
I'm not really a fan of logos repeated but I like the subtleness of the alabaster , love the contrast with the red too ....makes me dream of 'mini-breaks'.

It would be totally impractical but how fab would a suitcase look in the alabaster and red ( would have to be first class all the way though ! )

Hay nice to see you Ltded!

I saw mini messenger a couple days ago and really loved the dinky round lock - I wouldn't think you need to collonil these, it was nicely coated.

Don't know about big ones...

I saw them at Mulberry in Paris on Saturday, and did not like them at all. :nogood:
However I did get the tote (the give away one) and will use it for shopping, wonder how long it will stay white? :P

I saw them in St Christopher Place, London a couple of weeks ago. They are coated canves aren't they? I liked the look of them , didn't inspect them so can't comment on durability but would imagine they'd be pretty robust. I always have a bit of a thing about paying a few hundred for non leather though, I guess it may make the sales. TBH I preferred the denim version.

I've not ordered it or anything yet, I want to be able to choose the best one if I can - I want to have a really good try on and make sure it is right for me , the straps worry me a little as well as the price - for that sort of money it's got to be perfect. Being very good and saving up , not going to impulse buy and it is very hard as seeing other bags I keep thinking that I could have 2 for the price of the Alexa.I like the Tamara and Daria satchel in metallic linen as fun holiday bags. I also keep lusting after an Oak Bayswater. Decisions decisions !

PS had a naughty little purchase on my-wardrobe yesterday too which has eroded the Alexa fund slightly - will reveal later in the week.
