Mulberry's Spring 2012 Collection Will Leave You Breathless

While we're still starry-eyed over Mulberry's Carter bag, the brand's spring '12 collection has left us with only one thing to say—be still our beating hearts. Featuring buttery leather in every style from patent to ostrich, and pretty much every size and shape you could want, Mulberry gave us a serious case of bag-envy on each and every page of their outstanding lookbbook. While there are few loud colors or funky patterns, save for an animal print and a neon-green leopard motif, we love the neutral color palette and minimal hardware for their simplicity and versatility—after all, Mulberry bags are investment pieces and need to be adaptable to changing trends. Some of the absolute show-stoppers in the collection (that may have actually elicited a gasp or two) include the blush and beige snake-print bags, as the snake provides an unusual but subtle texture, and the colors are feminine without being girly. We won't be picky, though, as we'd be content with any bag in Mulberry's arsenal. Maybe it's time to start being extra extra good from now on, so one of these beauties will appear under a tree in a few months...
