My review of Mulberry for Target


Today I went to a Target store that I don't visit that much, even though it's only about 15-20 minutes away. It sits in a large and often crowded mall, which is why I don't frequent the place. Anyhow, as I was walking through the accessories section, I noticed that this store had the new Mulberry for Target collection out already (even though the line isn't supposed to be available until Oct. 10th). Unfortunately, as I predicted a few weeks ago, this collection is a true disappointment. The faux-patent leather material looks tacky and plastic-ee, and even the denim bags (like the one shown) screamed "childish" and "cheap". Worst of all was the hot-pink leopard-print PVC bag; the pink is so bright, it's practically neon! What a letdown.

Couture and Crayons, you definitely picked the BEST of the bunch of the bags! Out of all of them I saw, it was the only decent one. And your pics make it look even better ;-) Good call on ditching the heart-dangle; if you do that, then this bag gets a passing grade.

How sad....but you can't really replicate Mulberry at these prices. Shame they couldn't do what they did for Anya Hindmarch!

These are really awful. Couture and Crayons, definitely return and put that money toward something you will love. Some Target collaborations have been really great, this one is a huge miss.

I saw the Mulberry collection out at a second Target store yesterday. No special signage was put up yet, but the full selection (taking up a considerable amount of space in the handbag section) was out.

You know... I haven't been too happy with the durability of my anya hindmarch bags. The pleather just doesn't last! I hardly use them as a result.

Just bought the mini crossbody in black velvet as a gift. She loved it.
