The Mulberry Alexa BagEmma Hill joined the brand as creative director in 2008 – leading to another iconic bag to be released. The Alexa.
The Alexa was launched for the Spring/Summer season of 2011 and quickly reached iconic status. Emma Hill chose to create an updated version of the Bayswater, inspired by presenter and fashion icon, Alexa Chung after she was spotted out with a vintage Burberry men’s briefcase (theElkington).
At the beginning of the 21st century, Mulberry designed and released two bags that were soon to become iconic, the Bayswater and Roxanne.
The Mulberry Bayswater Bag
Launched in 2002 and named after the leafy area of west London, the Bayswater is a favourite icon of Claudia Schiffer and Kate Moss, the latter who has several bespoke versions of the bag. The Bayswater bag was originally released in a few muted colours, but is now available in a plethora of colours include leopard print, ostrich leather and metallic shades. Without a doubt, the celebrity demand for Mulberry bags has contributed to the brand’s continued growth in demand across the globe.
