Mulberry Launch a Bayswater Shoulder Bag for Autumn/Winter 2013

With new designs like the ‘Willow’, ‘Primrose’ and ‘Del Rey’ – plus fresh colour-ways for Autumn/Winter 2013 – you’d be forgiven for forgetting about Mulberry’s classic Bayswater design. The handbag is practical and timeless, but the lack of zippers, bows and star power has meant it’s failed to attract much attention lately. However, that’s all about to change, as Mulberry have just released a new take on their iconic style: the Bayswater Shoulder bag.

For Autumn/Winter 2013 the Bayswater handbag has been scaled down and redeveloped. The new design still features the signature postman’s lock hardware, but is significantly smaller, and has a long, cross-body shoulder strap instead of than the usual rounded handles. It’s polished and grown up, like the original design, but hints to the relaxed style of the ‘Alexa’ and ‘Bryn’ bags. Currently there are five colour options – black, taupe, midnight blue, bright red and aubergine – and I have a feeling it won’t be long until we spot this design on Jennifer Lawrence, Olivia Palermo and Katie Holmes.

Are you a fan of the new Mulberry Bayswater Shoulder bag? Or do you prefer the classic Bayswater design? Let me know…

  • I love the new shoulder bag! I’m starting to become more of a fan of cross body bags lately as they are just so versatile.

    If I had a spare £1,100 I would buy this for my Nan in a heartbeat – she loves a good cross body bag!


    Oh I love the shoulder one, sleek and elegant, just like the Classic Bayswater. I wouldn’t change my original Bayswater for anything but I can definitely see this new one go with all of my autumn outfits 😉 Really love the aubergine colour as well – thanks for a lovely post!

  • These bags are amazing. Maybe we will hire them
