Far too much fun was had at the launch of Mulberry’s coffee table book on day 2 of Luisa Via Roma’s Firenze4Ever, where we played with the giant gold Mulberry bag, got tangled up in bag-shaped balloons and decorated our own sponge cakes. Mulberry must be celebrating with more than cake today as it releases the news that pre-tax profits are up 358%. I’m willing to bet that the next year’s trading will be just as healthy with the launch of the Polly Push Lock bag. (I originally heard this as ‘Polly Posh Lock’ which I think sounds even better!)
Am I the only fashion editor that doesn’t own a Mulberry bag? My bad but the Polly Push Lock ticks all my boxes – it’s a great size, I love pebbled leather, the AW11 palette is beautiful and its briefcase-y shape makes it slightly masculine which of course is very me.
