Wishlist: Mulberry’s ‘Alexa’ bag
News of Alexa Chung’s MTV show, It’s On With Alexa Chung, being cancelled has been doing the rounds for the past few days. Now, whilst I don’t care much for her hosting or interviewing skills, there is no doubt that she is has emerged as a style icon in recent times. She totally sums up the effortless London girl chic look.
All this talk of Alexa teamed with the fact I’m in Christmas-wishlist-mode made me remember THAT bag! The ‘Alexa’ bag by Mulberry is an updated version of The Bayswater inspired by Chung herself (though she played no part in the design process….). I want this bag now! It will be available in January and it seems that waiting lists have already started….
She is the perfect fit for Mulberry, as she clearly loves the brand, often pictured with a trusty Roxanne or Bayswater. Mulberry probably sat up and paid attention when she was snapped with a customized Mulberry Roxanne – she swapped the strap to a vintage Tyrolean-style guitar strap. It was such a simple change that had everybody thinking why hadn’t I thought of that.
The only thing I’m thinking is whether I should get the Alexa in classic oak or patent black? Decisions, decisions, decisions.
