Event Post: Mulberry’s Spring/Summer 2012 Press Day

On Thursday, January 5th, Stylicious Fashionista attended the Mulberry Press Day.

Everyone was greeted by this as we walked out of the lift

And this is the first thing that greets you when you walk into the room the balloon animals centerpiece. The theme for Mulberry this Spring/Summer 2012 is Pink, Yellow and Green – well, sherbet colours to be exact – And we were served sorbets in precisely these 3 colours: Kiwi (Green), Mango (Yellow) and Raspberry (Pink) along with frozen margaritas, as well as sandwiches, scones and cookies to fill up our tummies.

Meet  the Evelina family:

The Evelina Satchels in 2 sizes the Summer Khaki one at the back is the large size
Mulberry’s latest addition to SS12, the Harriet satchel(in leopard printed hair calf.  (Retail price: RM 12,000+)

Next up, the travel day bags from the Catwalk collection. The one on the left in Natural Mixed animal print is quite unique and you really have to see it up close because it looks like hair calf, but when touched, it’s actually just the print. The one on the right is one of my favorites, in Nightshade Blue Haircalf and the rich midnight blue is really much more intense when seen up close. No price available yet for these babies because they’re Runway pieces.

If you think this shade looks gorgeous, you have to see the real colour up close. 
The Bayswater in Lemon Sherbert patent leather. This colour wouldn’t be brought into Malaysia because apparently, Malaysians  are more “safe” when it comes to their choice of colours. 

Another bag from the Catwalk Collection, here’s a Bayswater with scalloped details, the “Cookie Bayswater”

The Cookie Lily in Ochre

Here’s another one of my favorites, the Lily with Gems — the gems are actually made of Swarovski crystals

Left: The Effie Tote, Right: the Taylor satchel

Oh and this Lily with Patchwork Gems from the Catwalk collection just sets my heart aflutter. The patchwork is actually Mulberry’s motto: “Love, Peace, Mulberry”

Retail Price: Approximately RM 8000+

 And there’s more: here’s the back view with a patchwork star! How cute is that? I actually didn’t notice this detail at the back, until the buyer for Mulberry Malaysia pointed it out to me!

Here’s the Rosie from the Travel range. Not at all heavy, the nylon makes it a perfect travel companion

Rosie Hobo and Rosie Satchel in Blue & Grass Green printed mini leopard nylon

Yet another catwalk piece which I LOVE, the travel camera bag. If you think it’s striking in the photo, let me tell you that up close, the green actually “glows” and seems almost radioactive.

The Evelina Hobo in leopard printed haircalf – Retail price: RM 15,000

Lastly, the SLGs. I really love the zippered pouch on the left. Again, perfect for traveling with, it has 2 zips on both the front AND the back along with a top middle zip for the main compartment. And I know what some of you might be thinking (which to be honest, I initially thought as well): that the zips actually direct you to the same compartment. Well nope, nothing of that sort — they’re all separate compartments. The zip pouch retails for  RM1,460 and I am definitely getting one!

Lastly, the RTW and shoe collections, which would not be brought into KL.

And here are some shots of me

Posing with my favourite bag!
And me, with my actual bag that I was toting that day: The Celine Luggage tote

Have you spotted your favourite amongst the bags? Which one is it?
