There are many instantly recognisable Mulberry bag styles that make our hearts sing and have stood the test of time in our wardrobes. Alexa! Lily! Iris! Bayswater! You all still mean the world to us, and it’s precisely because of that enduring adoration that we are always interested in what the British heritage brand will deliver next. Mulberry’s bag ranges are at once classic, wearable and smart investments. They also spark joy and feel current, no matter the year. One such example of this leather-goods wizardry? The label’s latest launch, Softie.
The clue to this bag’s charm and allure is in the name. The Softie family is full of cuddly, quilted and squishy creations that are begging to be embraced. They come in bright and bold colourways, such as cornflower blue or vibrant coral, as well as classic hues like tan and black. In addition to the statement that the cloud-like quilted leather of a pillow bag brings, there are also refined Mulberry signatures front and center, such as the postman’s lock fastening.
In addition to its range of hues, you’ll also find that the Softie has been crafted in a variety of silhouettes and sizes. So if you’re tied to that cross-body, hands-free life, then the Little Softie with its vintage-feel chain strap should be your first choice. If you’re looking for something on the capacious side—laptop, plug, glasses, makeup, the lot—then Big Softie is your guy: a roomy tote style that manages to be oh-so practical yet full of personality. Should your style require a more flexible approach, the medium-sized Sofie is a fantastic option with its shorter and longer handle options.
If you’ve been finding yourself reaching for feel-good fashion over the past few months, then consider this the best opportunity to up your dopamine levels for a long time to come. Who’s ready for a big Mulberry-style hug, then? Keep scrolling to see the full Softie family and shop this adorable piece for yourself.
