Did you spot it? Well, the eagle-eyed certainly would have. Paul Smith’s fall-winter 2023 collection featured some rather colourful bags on the necks of the runway models but they’re by another British designer. Mulberry’s Antony messenger – an icon for over two decades – has made a timely reintroduction here albeit with a little boost from the other quintessentially British label. Already a fixture in Mulberry’s catalogue, Paul Smith’s take on the rectangular leather carrier is led by the expert use of colour-blocking, tapping on multiple colours that the latter is all too familiar with. There are also long wallet-sized bags in the mix too, all featuring Mulberry’s recognisable postman’s lock as a key hardware. Expect 10 styles in several pop colours for this collab as well as cameos of Paul Smith’s signature stripes. Mr. Smith’s explanation for this get-together is a rather straightforward one: “Paul Smith and Mulberry were founded within a year of each other in the 1970s, so you could say our brands grew up and came of age together. I think that’s at least partly why we share such a similar approach to creativity an craft – that and our Britishness.” The collab will only be available this fall but in the meantime, you can start putting money aside.
