Buy it now: Mulberry Small Maple tote

Mulberry Small Maple tote in oak

I wrote about the Mulberry Small Maple tote last year and since then have added one to my small collection of everyday bags. Mine is the oak colourway (buy it here), a beautiful deep tan that works year-round but is especially good in summer to elevate white or blue denim.

It’s proved popular with my readers and IRL friends so I thought I’d flag up that it’s currently on sale. It’s now £472 (down from £675) and is also available in other colours (the oxblood is delicious…). Buy it at

It’s a great bag if you’re trying to downsize the amount of stuff you carry around. You can definitely fit in an iPad, big phone, small makeup bag, sunglasses, diary, keys and an umbrella. Work files, not so much. But I find it very convenient for work days when I’m out for just a morning or afternoon of meetings, or weekends zipping around town.

Gentlewoman style: The Gigi

Ana Gimeno Brugada in The Gigi womenswear

I was going to include The Gigi in my post on double-breasted jackets but I decided it needed its own dedicated post.

Here’s stylist Ana Gimeno Brugada wearing The Gigi, a spin-off of the popular Italian menswear brand, Boglioli. The womenswear offer is essentially Ana personified, from the relaxed tailoring pieces to the insouciant styling. (more…)
