Mulberry Buckle Bag

Mulberry Buckle Bag in Purple

The Mulberry Buckle Bag is the latest bag to be introduced by Mulberry, and is hot off the catwalk. This bag, which is similar in appearance to the Alexa, has had an upgrade to its metal hardware – the leather belt buckle fastening straps have been replaced with solid metal buckle trim detail.

The bag is made from purple grained leather – Mulberry refer to this colour as “Eggplant”. Eggplant is the American name for an aubergine.  I prefer purple – it requires less explanation 😉

The other features are the same as the Alexa, including the plaited top handle, postman’s lock fastening on the front, removable and adjustable shoulder strap and the Mulberry branded rivets.

The bag has shiny gold coloured metal hardware throughout. Inside, the bag has a single  main compartment with a signature Mulberry Tree fabric lining in eggplant purple. There is one zip pocket and one slip pocket together with the signature internal metal Mulberry fob.

Height 23cm / 9.1″; Width 33cm / 13″; Depth 17cm / 6.7?; handle drop 11cm / 4.3″; shoulder strap 112cm /44″  – 128cm / 50.4″ – (all measurements are approximate)

Material: 100% leather

Style note: With the advent of the Alexa, I thought Mulberry bags had become as covetable as they could be, but now they have upped their game by taking the Alexa, which we know and love, and adding more chunky metal work to the front to give it even more luxurious style than before, embracing the current season’s trend towards a decadent and rich look. This bag is likely to sell out quickly and if there are any Americans reading this – deliver over there too!

UK based, international delivery is available.
