Bright as a nickel is Mulberry’s Metallic Croc Print Bayswater Tote. I’ve always been fond of Mulberry’s Bayswater tote; it’s the large boxy silhouette that I’ve always admired. Each season, the Britain based brand releases its famous design in various textures and colors, one of my past time favorites being the fuchsia ostrich version. Now what’s to say about this specific one? I think metallics are great, they’re trendy and the likelihood of the metallic craze to strike again is pretty high. Plus, when you want a serious look-at-me bag, without overdoing it on logos or crazy mixtures of hues, the simple metallic bag seems like the way to go.
So I’m a fan of the metals, but I’m not sure if I’m a fan of this specific bag. There’s something about this that isn’t quite perfect, I’m guessing it’s the croc printed suede that’s throwing the look off for me. I’m pretty sure it might look much better in person, but at the moment, if I were in search of a Bayswater tote to add to my collection, the Metallic Croc Print wouldn’t be my first pick.
