Here are the Roxannes – in Oak Darwin Darwin. I really love this model. It has been my absolute favourite since I saw a really battered one opposite me on the tube one day. Previously I had considered this model too much like things that were sold at village fêtes.
The Darwin Roxanne was made from 2005 to 2006/7. My Darwin at the front to the left was bought new at Heathrow Duty Free in 2006. The Romilly and the other Roxanne were bought pre-loved so I do not know how old they are.
I wanted to thank Emi so much for this Roxanne. I was so afraid that I would never ever be able to replace mine but now I have another one! I am so keen to see how it ages and how the patina develops!
With Mulberry leather you can see the beautiful patina that develops with regular use. I have never moisturized any of my Darwin bags and they look all the better for it, I think.
i have this kind of bag!! ur a woman with style!!
OMG I would die for one of these GORGEOUS handbags! Literally lol! This is my Dream handbag! By the way and im sure you’ve heard this a million times but you are an absolutely STUNNING woman!
No actually I haven’t so thank you very very much! And they are gorgeous bags. A really good investment as well.
Hi Janet, I would love to find one of these bags, I have looked on ebay and I can’t find one! You are so lucky! Beautiful Bags!!!
If you do regular searches you will find them but they are getting rarer and rarer these days.
I almost bought a Roxanne the minute I walked into a beautiful shop I used to visit in Nottingham, I was going to be made redundant from my job which I wasn’t enjoying at the time and really thought I would like something special that I would have and use for a long time. I went back the next week and thought it was beautiful a little heavy but I knew if I bought it I would use it for many years to come. However while in the shop I started to feel a little warm and left for some fresh air…apologising to the assistants saying I would be back That evening I took a pregnancy test that showed positive and instead of a beautiful bag I bought something practical for storing nappies/ diapers etc. I did get a beautiful daughter six months later but I sometimes think about the bag…
What a wonderful story! Thank you for sharing and you definitely got the best out of the deal. Nothing makes up for family 🙂
