Let’s Chat About The Mulberry x Richard Malone Bags!

Hello friends!!! Today I want to have a chat about the The Mulberry x Richard Malone Bags! These bags are SO flippin’ cool and I think it’s time we discussed them! This collaboration is part of the 50th anniversary celebrations of the brand and together Mulberry & Richard Malone have teamed up to create the most incredible range of bags. Many of them reinventing the iconic Bayswater bag, as well as working on the Darley bag, Barrell bag and small leather goods. Blimey! This collection is amazing! Oh and it comes hot off the release of the Mulberry X Alexa Chung collection. Let’s go!!! 

Mulberry x Richard Malone Bags review

“A creative collaboration boldly reinterpreting some of our most iconic designs through visionary designer Richard Malone’s boundary-blurring, blended lens of fashion and fine art.”

Mulberry x Richard Malone Bayswater Bag

For me, the classic Bayswater is the shining star of the Mulberry x Richard Malone collaboration. The reinvention of the classic Bayswater bag is SO fun! I love the way the brass branding plate at the clasp has been switched for stitched leather, the two tone leather and trim is delightful and the colours are so fun. It’s also interesting to see the hardware in a silver coloured metal too. I also really love the way the flap is a smoother leather than the grained leather of the base and bulk of the bag too. It’s just a really beautiful, exciting collaboration which makes the classic bag feel super fresh! This classic sized Bayswater bag comes in two colour ways; red and blue, as well as green and white. I think I prefer the red and blue personally! What about you? This bag retails for £1,395.

Mulberry x Richard Malone Triangle Bayswater Bag

Next up! We have the Mulberry x Richard Malone Triangle Bayswater Bag! I think this is the first time we have seen a trapeze style Bayswater bag. The blue bag is fully blue (not two tone!), where as the green is green with white trim. It’s also worth mentioning there is a shoulder strap and it’s a nice thick width as well, so it has a more sporty look than the classic Bayswater bags. This bag retails for £1,295.

Mulberry x Richard Malone Mini Bayswater Bag

OK! Next up, the Mulberry x Richard Malone Mini Bayswater Bag! At first I wasn’t into this bag, and then I realised it had a shoulder strap and can be worn over the shoulder or as a cross body bag and then I realised it was actually pretty cute! I think for me, I’m just not into tiny top handle bags – that being said, it is a very cute bag for younger ladies or maybe those who are more petite than me. Again, this bag comes in green and blue, both with white trim. It’s also priced at £895 making it one of the more affordable bags in the collection.

Mulberry x Richard Malone Barrell Bag

Amazingly, the Mulberry Barrell bag is also based on the Bayswater bag. It’s a really cute style and something we haven’t seen from Mulberry before. Again, it has a bit of a sportswear feel, it has the slightly wider shoulder strap and it reminds me of an 80’s gym bag. Which is very cute!! This bag comes in a red and blue colour way as well as the green with white trim colour way. Personally for this one I prefer the green, which is weird for me as for most of the other styles I prefer the blue colour way! This bag retails for £1,095.

Mulberry x Richard Malone Small Darley Satchel Bag

If I’m honest, the Mulberry x Richard Malone Small Darley Satchel Bag is probably my least favourite of the collection. To be fair, it’s the most affordable bag in the collection, and I respect that. But personally, I just prefer the other bags. That being said, it’s a very cute, casual, sporty-style saddle bag for the summer months. I especially like it in the blue and white colour way. Technically this bag is based on the Bayswater, but for me, it reminds me more of the Sadie saddle bag. This bag retails for £795.
