Mulberry, which launched in the 1970s in Somerset, England, is best known for its premier leather handbags and luggage. Displayed like art in this Madison Avenue store, the purses come in deep browns and blacks as well as flashier red and purple tones. The Roxanne is a strappy, multi-pocketed number, while the Bayswater is a sleeker style accented with a gold buckle. Shoppers willing to splurge can opt for the customization service, which allows them to get the Roxanne, Bayswater, or Piccadilly (a larger version of the Bayswater) styles in ostrich, snakeskin, or their choice of color. For a much more modest budget, there are leather keychains, calfskin planners, and patent credit-card holders. It’s worth a glance at the men’s and women’s apparel, too: Mulberry invites hot designers like Gilles Deacon to make capsule collections that can be snagged for up to 70% off at the end of each season.Sales
