It’s funny---some conversations on Twitter can spawn ideas for blog posts. As most of you know, us tweeps can do some talking about handbags. I love all the popular designer brands, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, and I even love me some Tory Burch. But I haven’t talked about my love of Mulberry. Sometimes when I mention “Mulberry”, people give me a blank stare. he he
I’m not sure when I first eyed a Mulberry handbag. Maybe a few years ago, but I didn’t like their bags that had the big metal logo with the mulberry tree. I’m sure I eventually saw a cute bag on a silly celebrity website & started investigating the line.
Any-who, I love the quality and classic shapes of Mulberry bags, and I love that it’s not covered in logos. Leave it to the British to have an understated bag.
Here’s some pics of Mulberry bags.
Style guru and muse, Alexa Chung. She’s carrying the “Alexa” bag that Mulberry designed after spotting her with a vintage briefcase.

This is my favorite style: “Neely”. Definitely on my wish list.

Here’s the great news! From October 10-December 24, Target is teaming up with Mulberry for a limited line of handbags. From what I’ve read, there will be about 8 styles featured and at least one version of their popular bags. The “Alexa” is predicted to be one of the versions.
I have a feeling this line will be flying off the shelves like the Cynthia Vincent wedges.
So what’s your opinion of the Mulberry bags? Too plain or just right? I have the oversized “Alexa” and hope to order the “Neely” soon.
