Mulberry Quilted Shimmy Tote

I generally do not favor large bags with super-chunky hardware, but, when it's done right, the overall effect can be ultra chic. Take the Mulberry Quilted Shimmy Tote for instance. The 'Shimmy's' relaxed shape, quilted-pattern leather exterior, multiple carrying options (dual top handles or detachable shoulder strap), and roomy 13 x 15 x 4.5 size make it a great choice for a modern, go-to bag. The Quilted Shimmy is available in a neutral nude hue (pictured), and textured leather versions are also available in sand or black. Any of these bags would be fabulous additions to your handbag collections, and the prices aren't that bad either. The Quilted Shimmy is $1295 and the textured leather versions are priced at $995. My only pet peeve with the 'Shimmy' is the fact that the detachable shoulder strap is made from canvas, not leather. I know the canvas enhances the 'Shimmy's' urban feel, but I really do expect leather straps on bags in this price range. Still, the 'Shimmy' is so chic that I can overlook this design choice.
