On my recent trip to LA, a member of my party travelled with one of the nicest Mulberry handbags I have seen for a long time.

Mulberry’s ‘travel’ bag not only smashes the practicality scale, but is one of those classic Mulberry designs you just know you’ll spot on fashionable arms for years to come. We’re talking Bayswater/Roxy/Alexa territory.

My favourite finish? The oak shiny lambskin, pictured here in both the ‘day’ and ‘oversize’ sizes.
