MULBERRY bags will forever be an elegant classic even though we all know that the amount of brands that have replicated its immaculate aesthetic is innumerable.
But obvs, there’s nothing like the real deal. And thanks to a range of high-street retailers, you don’t have to break the bank for a Mulberry. We know where to find the cheapest designs and best deals.
Established in Somerset in 1971, Mulberry is the ultimate British handbag label, always combining expert craftsmanship and chic style.
Thanks to its flourishing popularity, its collection of Bayswater, Darley, Amberley and Lily can all be spotted replicated on the high-street.
But the genuine quality is irreplaceable, from the signature golden carved clasp to that rich, soft leather. You’ll be able to pass a Mulberry down generations – they’re famous for looking even better with age.
Stars have been obsessed ever since they gained fashionable momentum – Alexa Chung even designed her own style.
And the likes of Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton wear them religiously.
Every woman deserves to enjoy the British heritage luxury of a Mulberry bag, which is why we’ve found all the discounts and deals just for you.
1. Darley Leather Satchel Bag
We’ll start with one of the least expensive bags by Mulberry, the Darley Leather Satchel.
This stunning equestrian-inspired bag is crafted from grained leather and complete with the brand’s signature postman’s lock.
It’s a smaller Mulberry but has a spacious interior with three card slots.
John Lewis offers free delivery, so you’re saving about a fiver compared to other retailers.
Plus, this pristine bag is a lot cheaper than other small designs like the chain cross body bag (£611).

2. Bayswater Tote Bag
There are many variations of the Bayswater style – opt for this sophisticated colourway and save hundreds.
Closing with a neat popper, this Mulberry has a trademark badge sewn on the front.
From the versatile mole and cognac colourway to the durable, water resistant scotchgrain, this is a luxe everyday essential.
In the usual practical size, this Bayswater is big enough to fit essentials from an iPad to a pair of shoes – ideal for the office.

3. Harlow Grained Leather Satchel Bag
If you love the Harlow leather satchel as much as us, get to John Lewis (at Selfridges it’s £55 more!).
Featuring a top handle, this small, clean-cut bag offers a layered look with a double-flap front.
The twist ring closure is a new interpretation of the brand’s signature lock.
This will glam up even the simplest of outfits, the refined grained leather oozes prestigious quality.

4. Amberley Satchel Bag
This season’s new iconic style is the Amberley satchel.
The large version is almost double the price, but you’ll get much more use out of this as a lightweight daily staple.
Crafted from a grain veg tanned leather and beautiful suede interior, it’s embossed with the signature Mulberry foil and finished with the modern ring hardware.
Again with a flap-over front, this Mulberry is perfect for days when you only need a few necessities.

5. Bayswater Leather Tote Bag
When you think of Mulberry, this Bayswater leather tote probably flashes to mind.
At some point in the noughties, just about everyone – Kate Moss, Alexa Chung, Mischa Barton, Blake Lively, to be precise – had this baby nestled in the crook of their arm.
Defined by its neatly-structured profile and the brand’s signature postman’s lock, this bag is the ultimate Mulberry classic.
It’s fitted with adjustable side straps for increased volume and is roomy with a multi-compartment interior – ideal for everything from your iPad to your toiletries bag for freshening up after work.
The oak colourway will go with anything too, try it.
Plus, at Selfridges if you sign up, you can pay £10 for a years worth of unlimited deliveries (that’s only two deliveries worth!).
- Oak, £1,095 from Selfridges – buy here
6. Hampstead Bucket Bag
A style that’s been replicated countless times by the high-street is the Hampstead bucket bag.
Fastened with the contemporary geometric gold hardware and drawstring fastening, this luxury leather bag somehow makes a puckered bucket style still look pristine.
