Mulberry are introducing what is to be the new fashion darling for SS12. The Mulberry Harriet is destined to be the “it” bag of the season, the pared-down uptown look makes it perfectly suited to this season’s focus of elegant hardware, tactile shapes and multi-wear style options. My favourite has to be the leopard print haircalf satchel with pink gold hardware.
The briefcase-inspired clasp closure debuted on the much-loved Neely for A/W10, and Harriet’s softly structured shape and glossy finish are both tributes to Neely’s design signature. I do like the idea of a small bag but it just does not work in my life so the Harriet clutch is out of the question but I do like the chain detail.
The Harriet Clutch would be a perfect day to night crossover bag, a roomy, oversized style that folds over and secures with the family’s signature clasp.
Mulberry are also introducing new shades for SS12 – Summer Khaki, Pebbled Beige, Nightshade Blue and a Candy Pink and Marshmallow White contrast mix, all references to the seaside colour palette threading through the Spring Summer 2012 collection.
