Ever since it was released, I've always had a soft spot for Mulberry's Alexa bag. But I've always liked bags like that - I carried a satchel to school for years and my Dad has a very beautiful Simon Carter briefcase I have always coveted.
Last week Mulberry released the Tillie bag. I thought that I couldn't be swayed from the Alexa, but I am tempted by the Tillie.
The Alexa is a modern classic and I love it's slouchy leather, but I could see everything I put in there getting bashed about and crumpled. The Tillie is much more structured, and looks much more like a classic briefcase.
