Early in 2010 just in time for Fashion Week, the Mulberry “Alexa” caused such a stir among fashionista's that high end etailers such as net-a-porter and mywardrobe were sold out within days of each new drop and at the same time in 2011, the Tillie was launched, another satchel shaped hybrid which shot to fame after being seen on the arm of Olivia Palermo.
In light of recent once a year launches, I really wasn't expecting anything new from Mulberry until early 2012, but the “Carter” newest edition was really a masterpiece! I should say, there is something about it so sophisticated and luxe looking.

Camilla Belle with her little black Mulberry Mini Carter bag - the finishing touch to her casual look. Tres belle!
The Carter handbag has already been spotted on the arms of not one, not two, not even three stylish celebrities, but four. Actresses Kirsten Dunst, Kate Bosworth and Emma Watson have all got theirs, as has model Lily Donaldson who wore hers to Glastonbury earlier this year.
The Carter comes in either suede, croc, or snake-embossed leather.
Comes in three different size, roomy and characterised by its modern twist on a vintage style.
Birds Nest Croc Nappa Leather (Dimensions: 23 H x 33 W x 12 D cm)
The new cult Mulberry bag? Yep, I think so. The bags in the new collection come in either croc nappa or snake embossed printed leather in taupe, midnight blue or black, or fox brown suede. All feature woven leather and chain handle straps and shimmering gold clasps on the front.

Ooo not to forget, there’s the mini Carter Camera bag that features a longer chain strap and can be worn cross-body, the medium-sized Carter and a larger double handle style that’s roomy enough for all your daily essentials.
