Mulberry Fold Up Leopard Clipper

21 September 2012

So I go to Dubai on Monday, and what is a trip to the airport without a new hand luggage bag? It would be totally incomplete for me, and so a trip to Mulberry was very much necessary. I've always been a massive fan of Longchamp Le Pliage bags and had a far few for travelling in my time - they hold a huge amount, look classy, simple and understated, yet have beautiful detailing and they're easy to spot from afar, not to mention a fantastic design. However, I was set on a Mulberry bag for this Middle Eastern adventure. I've got a number of Mulberry bags, but not a travel bag, so I was set. I wasn't sure whether to get the Mulberry scotchgrain trolley or not - I love mini suitcases for weekends away or rushing through London Waterloo with, but I've always been more of a 'weekend bag' kinda girl. Enter the Mulberry Clipper. Much like the Longchamp Le Pliage, it's a classic fold away travel bag that can be stuffed to the brim. I couldn't help myself but go for the pinky purple leopard print design. I think bags can either be your sleek and understated accessory, or they can be the standout feature, and for this years hand luggage, I definitely went for standout feature.

The Clipper is completely lightweight and user friendly, and you'll only be moaning about how much your arm is hurting depending on how much clothes and makeup you stuff inside. It comes in the cutest little pouch to store away, or if you're me, you'll use it for something else such as an inner bag for a handbag, or to put all your travel documents in for the airport. The foldaway Clipper was £270, but you can buy a similar black one for £250 / £220 (they generally come in Medium and Large sizes). 

Now all I need to do is pack my hand luggage and be off to Heathrow Terminal 5 on Monday to sit in the British Airways lounge with a glass of champagne. Maybe I'll give my new Clipper a seat of its own on the deserves it.
