Edie: A new addition to the Mulberry family
If you’re anything like me, by now, you’ve seen the Mulberry Alexa, gone to visit it in your nearest Mulberry store or large department store. Written it down on your summer wishlist. Thought that you wanted the large tan version then decided on the black leopard print version and have fingers and toes crossed that Santa or boyfriend will deliver it on Christmas Day. If you are anything like me, you now will have a new dilemma. Mulberry have launched their pre-Spring/Summer2011 collection with an addition to the family – Edie.
It is inspired by and named after ‘Little Edie’, the star of the Grey Gardens documentary and film of the same name. The Edie is a hybrid of the iconic Bayswater and Alexa styles.
This reminds me of the customized Roxanne bag Alexa Chung appeared with a couple of years back, that probably started Mulberry’s love affair with her.
Remarkable resemblance, non? They call it the Edie but they really mean the Alexa part 2. Whether its Alexa or Edie, I know one thing for sure and that is, I want it. Sad but true.
