Thinking of getting this bag in black forest. Regretted bit getting a burgundy alexa last year. I need this to be a long term purchase with equal work and off duty use. I just got a new job (& pay rise) so was thinking of marking the occasion with this bag!
What do other people think - boring or lovely? And will a reddish bag be a good staple beyond this season?
Not sure but for me it's difficult to shake the doctor's bag associations. Somehow I see that bag full of equipment for breeches delivery - it also looks faintly comical and out of context, like a bread bin (google Wesco bread bin and you'll see what I mean).
I'd definitely spend that kind of money on something else. Alexa in burgundy would be much nicer.
I got the dark red oversized Alexa last year (the colour was called conker) I wanted something different to black. I say go for it the Black Forest colour is not dissimilar and it will go with everything! Plus if its a limited time colour then you know everyone wont have it. Go for it and enjoy your new bag!
How about the bayswater in black forest? Its a well established classic bag but in a striking colour. The jury is still out on the del ray and its popularity. There is going to be a price increase from november (quite hefty one too) if that spurs you on.
Hi, it will be across the brand but it's a little uncertain whether seasonal colours such as the Black Forest will be included as they are already sold at a highter price to the standard classic colours. It is looking like the standard colours, for example an Oak Bayswater, could go from £695 to £795 and I presume you could make a similar assumption for other bags, pro rata. That is quite a hike imo and it looks like its due to come in from !st November. You could try an email to Mulberry HQ to ask about the Del Ray, they are very good at responding.
