Bag Fever- Mulberry and Coach

As if to tease me knowing I have yet to increase the ante with my now depleted bank account, Mulbbery and Coach came up with new bags that would surely turn the tables around- yet again.

These two brands seem to have their own points of view, which is good. The more styles for us to choose from!


Mulberry can no longer be called a bag from the past with its newest updated looks from the Alexa, to the Edie and now the Lily. Even their names are tres chic!

This seasons Lily has been revamped to bring on the bling. Each bag is handsewn with beads that would amount to around 2,596 crystals and each would take roughly 18 hours to make, ensuring that no 2 bags are the same.

This bag may certainly call everyone's attention as it comes with a nice chunky price tag of USD 5,250. This must be the labor cost as all of this bag is made in the UK.



From the luxe of Mulberry back to the basics for Coach.
Take your pick.

Reed Krakoff goes back to the what Coach has been known for which its superb craftmanship, well made structures and fine materials.

That doesn’t meant they’re boring. New materials are used this season that ups the ante- by focusing on new fabrics and mixing textures, including suede, fur, mohair, sequins and animal skins in ladylike silhouettes and classic fall colors.

There was also lots of gold hardware, patent leather and subtle metallics. In keeping up with fall trends, some bags had a ’70s vibe.


Classic looks in classic materials. These are defintely keepers!
