I love Mulberry. I love it so much that if I had to choose only one brand which handbags to carry for the rest of my life I would easily jump into that monogamous relationship. That is why I always get extremely excited seeing the new Mulberry bag for the first time. And since this new bag range is extremely exclusive, the excitement is only heightened! Meet Maisie, the range that has been specifically created to celebrate launch of Mulberry collection in Japanese location of Dover Street Market. But don’t worry you don’t have to go to Tokyo to get your hands on the bags – they are also available at the London DSM store. The collection consists of 4 pieces (2 totes of different shapes, clipper bag and a clutch) in 3 colours (black, oak and flame) each finished with 3D print of Mulberry’s famous Alexa. And if by the time you get down to Dover Street the range is sold out – don’t threat as the entire range will be available online and in store from September onwards.
And for those dying to know the price range of the new Maisie collection – here are the numbers supplied by friendly press staff of DSM (from left to right) £1200, £395 and £995.

Most (and when I say most I mean 99.9%) of fashion wish lists out there all include at least one Chanel item. And that item is more often than not a Chanel 2.55 Flap bag. I have to admit that while I am a big Chanel fan, 2.55 is not on my list – there are so many copies and interpretations of the bag I would rather find other Chanel gems to salivate about. And that is never a problem! This season I have two favourite pieces from the new Chanel collection: Canvas Tote with Calfskin Trim and Logo (above) and Python Embossed Leather Evening Clutch with Clasp (below). Tote is a perfect modern twist to the classics – still so Chanel with the trims and handles. But at the same time the material choice is a paradox: ordinary canvas has never had a higher price tag all thanks to white Chanel logo stamped on its side. The second bag is on the other hand pure luxury – an evening clutch worth saving for special occasions. Beautiful spring/summer colour, python leather, silver logo and the most classic box shape: there is nothing else one can wish for in a perfect evening clutch.
