I have taken two shots of this one. The one at the top of the post shows the true colour but the two below taken with the flash show more how the constant wear has caused darkening on the pockets and straps (not seen) which makes it even more beautiful.
This was the first Mulberry bag after the Giselle which deviated from the ‘scotchgrain sensible older woman’ stamp Mulberry had at the time. I remember seeing one in a shop window and thinking it was just so beautiful but too ‘craft stall’ and ‘handmade’ looking to be to my taste as a Mulberry bag. Plus it was unlined. Like all great loves though it grew on me over time and I really adore this bag. I am so delighted I have one because they are discontinued the style a few years ago.
This is a Mulberry Roxanne in Oak Darwin. This model was originally called the Roxy but Roxy Quiksilver (the surf brand) sued Mulberry, who then had to change it. It has two straps, two front pockets and a flap-over/flap-under top which can be worn with both flaps upright if it is full. There is one inside pocket with heavy duty zipper and Mulberry disk tag. No serial number. Each of the studs has the Mulberry tree on them. There are D-ring tags on the sides but no strap was included with the bag. I fixed this by buying a Rosemary (smaller version of the Roxanne which came with a strap) from Mulberry and I use that when I travel. This bag has been discontinued.
Beautiful bag. Holds A4. The front pockets are very practical. Comfy to carry. Fits over the shoulder, over arm and in hand. I live in Sweden so when I have my huge down jacket on it doesn’t go on my shoulder but that does not happen very often). Becomes more beautiful the more you use it. Lasts a lifetime.
Can be heavy
