Bags fit for a Queen

Two iconic British bag designers have paid tribute to the upcoming Diamond Jubilee by creating special bags celebrating the occasion. You can find the bespoke Maud clutch bag at Anya Hindmarch. This little beauty comes in 6 exclusive Jubilee shades – silver, emerald, fuchsia, plum, midnight and black (I’ll have fuchsia or midnight please!). You can also have your initial embroidered on the outside, and a name or personalised message inside. On top of all that, it comes with a paper tiara and instructions on how to wave like the queen. Perfection. The queue for this little gem starts behind me!

Mulberry also have a Jubilee special. They are releasing 3 of their most popular, classic bags with a very British twist; the metal plaque will feature a Union Jack rather than the usual Mulberry tree. The bags are the Bayswater, Lily and Pouch, and they will go on sale from May 31st. In addition, the lining of each bag will be a special print consisting of the Mulberry tree, a heart and a Union Jack, signifying that Mulberry loves Britain.
