    We've already discussed the various merits of Proenza's PS13 versus Mulberry's Willow, both of which are delectable work totes with an envelope-style front, and both of which are poised to become spring's It bags. Right now though, Mulberry's Willow just about has the edge.

    The Brit brand has released a lookbook featuring every single colour, leather, and size variation of the latest addition to the Mulberry family, and frankly we're smitten with them all. The Willow silhouette takes Mulberry's arm candy offering in a slightly more ladylike direction, a departure from the brand's signature casual satchels — and we think that the timing for this classic design is just right. We also love the fact that it's not really one bag, but two, with the front pocket transforming into a detachable oversized clutch that zips off. It's also British through and through, made in Mulberry's Somerset factories.

    Since its debut at London Fashion Week in September '12, the Willow has (understandably) attracted a gaggle of celebrity fans, including Kate Moss, Andrea Riseborough, Lily Collins, and Elisabeth Moss. The new collection will hit selected Mulberry stores starting in mid-February. We love the Laduree shades, and the mint classic calf tote has gone right to the top of our spring '13 wish list. Take a look at the slideshow and let us know which are your favourites.

Meet The Actress You'll Be Watching All Fall

Hollywood isn't easy to break into. Most actors wait for decades to have that right-place-right-time moment, and it never comes. Which is exactly what makes Karla Souza so unique. After moving from Mexico City to Los Angeles a few months ago, it took her a matter of weeks to book a major role on a pilot. And, this wasn't read
