Alexa Chung was our first ever grown-up style crush (after the Olsen twins you understand) so when we heard she’s collaborated with Mulberry to design two new handbags, we had to get eyes on them.
Meet ‘The Big Guy’ and ‘The Little Guy’, the two latest recruits to the British fashion brand’s bag range. Both are already available to buy on the Mulberry website and prices start from £795.
The collaboration is part of Mulberry’s 50th birthday celebrations, and they said of the new designs: “We are excited to launch a collaboration with our long-time friend and the woman who inspired one of our most iconic bags: Alexa Chung.”
“Alexa draws on the aesthetic signatures of her own personal style: masculine formality offset with a vintage romance and a deep appreciation for British design” they added.
Whilst The Big Guy is a 29cm wide satchel which features a long gold chain for cross-body wearing (as well as a top handle), The Little Guy is a slightly smaller style (it’s still 28cm wide) which comes with a shorter chain, making it an ideal evening bag.
Alexa said: “Being invited to design my own Mulberry bag is really a dream come true. The first Alexa was named after me and getting to interpret it in my own way is even better. I wanted to make sure that it would endure, become a future classic.”
Our favourite? The apple green leather Little Guy – a dreamy statement bag if ever we saw one!
