Celebrity "It" Bag: Kate Moss's Mulberry Bayswater
March 2, 2008
The Mulberry Bayswater tote is so classic that even eternal hipster Kate Moss can't help but give into its simple sophistication. Luckily, for once you don't have to be built like a model to carry off something that looks good on her. The clean lines and aged-brass fittings of the Bayswater are a perfect marriage of modern sleek and vintage chic. And best of all, it's a handbag you know you can wear for more than one season. Net-a-porter has the real thing for a cringe-inducing $995 (or you can always bid on it on eBay), but SheFinds knows how to dig for a bargain. Pick up a near exact replica of the real thing for $330, or snag a pretty good knockoff for only $150. If you're still reluctant to drop a lot of green for this season's best black, ease into the idea with this tote from Target — the slim shoulder straps and aged-brass detail give the same silhouette without trying to copy a swank original. No matter your budget, though, the Bayswater is a handbag that's worth a splurge — it may be the "It" bag of the summer, but it'll also look good for the next fifty years.
