Kelly is going to flip when she sees this bag, her favorite exotic skin in her favorite color du jour, purple! I can’t get enough of purple either and was not a lover of ostrich until I got the Sang A River tote, the ostrich has gotten softer with each use and I am now a big fan! It also makes me feel better that ostrich is widely farmed around the world and used for its meat as well. So it’s a by-product just like leather! And yes, I have eaten ostrich and it tastes like chicken. Where am I going with this? No idea but let’s get back to the Mulberry Bayswater, it has reached iconic status thanks to style maven Kate Moss who totes it in multiple hues and leathers. A good size at 13″ but not so big that it takes two of you to carry (and come on, do you think Kate the waif can carry anything too heavy?) plus it has hidden buckles at the side to expand the bag should you want to use it for travel or as diaper bag. The straps may be worn on shoulder or toted on arm. So multi-functional don’t you agree? This is probably my favorite version of the Bayswater bag, the rich purple color really shows off the beautifully textured ostrich skin.
