We Go To Mulberry HQ To Test Drive The New Dorset Tote

[Mulberry]

Calling all It bag ladies - there's a new Mulberry vying for your affections: the Dorset tote. It's bold, it's bright and it's big enough to stuff in all of the essentials that take you from work to gym to drinks to dinner, or whatever it is we're supposed to be doing with our busy daily lives.

In any case, we can promise you the new spring/summer 2014 Mulberry tote bag is a beaut. Classic, versatile and available in red, green and blue, there's something to suit whichever mood you're in. In fact, we love the Dorset bag so much that we went behind the scenes and took a visit to Mulberry HQ in Kensington, London, where we shot the office space and ate sushi with Team Mulberry, as well as trying out the bag of course. What caught our eye while we were there?

Not gonna lie, but we were pretty impressed by the indoor architecture. From giant gold-leafed deer to huge Tim Walker-style dolls houses in the foyers, it was more fairy tale wonderland than daily office space. Think something along the lines of the wonderful, ethereal Cara Delevingne collection campaign, which debuted in a Mulberry-inspired woodland just two months ago, and you're along the right lines. Similarly gorgeous was the showroom, which was piled high with ready to wear couture, some amazing polka dots, Mulberry totes and accessories. I had a bit of a soft spot for the green bag, as you can see...

But most of all we fell in LOVE with the new line of Dorset totes. The shape has already been seen on everyone from Olivia Palermo to Alexa Chung this season and for fans of a multitasking bag, we reckon the Mulberry is unbeatable. Happy shopping!

The Mulberry Dorset is made from Soft Nappa leather and it retails at £595 from Mulberry and mulberry.com now.
