replica mulberry handbags

Thieves smashed the window of House of Fraser and escaped with luxury replica Mulberry bags worth thousands of pounds today.

They struck at 3.30am by hammering out the window and grabbing luxury fake handbags. It is believed they escaped by scooter and police are trawling CCTV for clues.

Staff cleared up the debris and an area outside the shop was cordoned off and a security guard was posted outside.

One shop worker said: “We came to work to find this, it was a real shock. The windows are very thick, it can’t have been easy to break through.”

The replica Mulberry display is nearest to the window in the department store on Victoria Street.

A massive hole remained in the glass but the store opened for business as usual this morning.

The store is expected to review its security according to staff at the scene today. Police said they would be studying CCTV footage gathered from the area where the raid on House of Fraser. It is believed the thieves escaped by scooter but this has not been confirmed.

A police spokesman said: “Police were called to reports of a burglary on a shop at 3.30am.

“A quantity of goods were taken, inquiries are ongoing.”

A House of Fraser spokesperson declined to comment.

Tracing the evolution of the replica bumbag

A lavender-toned purse topped with sparkling brooches was wrapped around the waist of a hand-embellished Elie Saab dress on the Haute Couture Week catwalk in Paris earlier this year. Karl Lagerfeld also incorporated skinny belts topped with rectangular pouches, no doubt inspired by bum replica bags, in his haute couture looks for Chanel. That’s right – bum bags. This typically unfashionable accessory has been given an extravagant makeover, with fashion houses like Gucci, Prada and Moschino all delivering luxury renditions. And, surprisingly, they’re selling like hot cakes.

The accessory has humble roots, and was likely inspired by early Native Americans who wore buffalo pouches around their waists instead of sewing pockets into their clothing, or by European lords in the medieval ages who would store their weapons in pouches attached to their belts. In terms of contemporary fashion, the bum bag has never been described as covetable – until now, that is.

Traditionally offered in a slouchy, inverted trapeze shape, and fitted with zippers and a canvas strap with a buckle, the bum fake bag went mainstream in the 1980s. Crafted from neon neoprene and vinyl textiles, sometimes with gold or silver metallic colours, it was a convenient, utilitarian and hands-free alternative to a replica mulberry handbag. But it seemed fated to remain in the realm of the unstylish, and by the 1990s, bum cheap bags quickly became symbolic of out-of-place tourists, dishevelled joggers and flustered mothers-on-the go.

Depending on where you are in the world, bum replica bags are also referred to as hip sacks, waist packs, banana bags, belt packs and moon bags. While all indicators suggested that the bum bag had made a hasty (and welcome) retreat into fashion history, over the past few seasons, international brands – Italian, Parisian and even Middle Eastern – have shown an eagerness to revive it.

There have been bum bags in glossy jewel tones at Emporio Armani, oversized pouches buttoned onto wide belts at Marni, minimalist drawstring designs at Celine and leather envelope styles dangling off belts at Stella McCartney. Dubai-based label Bouguessa, which specialises in shirt-dresses and abayas, recently adorned its tunics and trenches with self-typing belts, with removable, oversized pouches attached. Likewise, lace gowns created by Madiyah al Sharqi for the 2017 summer season featured matching pastel-hued bum bags.

But if you really want to witness the newfound stardom of the bum bag, observe the ensembles of fashion week ticket-holders, and you’ll spot the controversial accessory, adorned with designer logos and emblems, around the waists of high-profile fashion editors, designers and influencers. As a matter of fact, the new, cooler way to wear your bum bag is slung over one shoulder, à la Louis Vuitton’s 2017 and 2018 menswear offering. Men, too, are at risk of succumbing to the craze – new Hermes, Lanvin and Gucci collections for men all include bum bags.

Some style-conscious consumers are managing to adopt this trend without actually splurging on a designer bum bag. Instead, they’re simply doubling up the shoulder straps of their luxury Fendi or Mulberry replica handbags, and wrapping them around their waists in a layered fashion, to emulate the appearance of a bum bag. It’s a clever way to cheat the system and still sport the trend. After all, Gucci’s turquoise-coloured bum bag in quilted velvet may well become a fashion staple this autumn. But will you feel confident enough to fasten it around your waist three years from now? Perhaps not.

Introducing the Camden: Johnny Coca’s latest Mulberry replica handbag

Hailed as ‘the man to save cheap Mulberry’, Johnny Coca is off to a flying start. Since he was appointed creative director in July 2015, the brand’s profits have increased three-fold: up to £6.2 million, versus £1.9 million for the previous year. And when his first catwalk collection was unveiled at London Fashion Week in February, all eyes were on the replica handbags. Previously design director for shoes and accessories at Céline, this is the man responsible for hits such as the Trio and the Trapeze, so expectations were weighty.

Those high hopes were not unfounded. Coca’s take on classics such as the Bayswater, along with brand new styles like the compact, cross-body Clifton, have put replica Mulberry handbags firmly back on top of the must-have bag list. And the brand has just revealed the latest addition for autumn/winter 2016: the Camden.

A single-handle, bucket-style bag, the Camden features four high-shine zips which transform it from a slouchy, hobo-like carry-all when worn open (as seen on the catwalk), to a cleaner, more structured tote when zipped up. “I was inspired to play with the zips by the iconic hardware of British punk culture,” says Coca. “Zips make a powerful subversive statement which, when contrasted with lux materials, create an edgy aesthetic.”

While the zips give a nod to the punk reputation of its namesake area of London, plush materials mean the Camden is firmly at home in Mayfair’s leather-goods mecca. Classic black, indigo, burgundy and clay versions come in the brand’s signature, heavy-duty grained leather – the quality of which was one of the first things Coca set about improving – while there are also tri-colour designs in smooth calf leather or tactile calf hair, and a leopard-print calf-hair style with a more rock-chic aesthetic.

Finished with the details that are fast becoming a signature of Coca’s ‘new Mulberry’ – the reimagined logo inspired by a font from the archives, the sumptuous suede lining, the military-style studs – the robust-yet-roomy Camden also reflects Coca’s commitment to function as well as form (he studied architecture). Starting at £995, the bags sit at the high end of the “affordable luxury” sweet-spot that’s so vital to cheap Mulberry’s comeback, after previous price hikes alienated many of its core consumers.

“The Camden is for everyday use,” continues Coca’s statement. “It’s perfect easy cool with a twist of an edge.” So far, that combination is a recipe for success at Mulberry replica handbags.

Why the new ‘It’ replica handbag for 2017 is no bag at all

I noticed an online promotion recently, cheerfully and very hopefully exclaiming, “This is the one replica mulberry handbag bag you need this season”.

It was a cute circular bamboo bag that I remember from the 70s but, on the whole, it was an extraordinary claim.

The absolute must-have replica handbag, the “it bag”, the one bag that will change your life and pronounce to the world that you are a true fashion insider hasn’t really been a thing for years now.

Of course there are, and will always be, classic bags such as the Hermes Kelly and Birkin bags, the quilted, chain-handled Chanel 2.55, the woven Bottega Veneta bag, or the Longchamp tote.

These are beautiful, functional examples of timeless design that defy trends. And there will always be new, pretty, seasonal handbags to update your look.

But no one really believes that a handbag is the key to a woman’s style credibility.

For a while, staring in the early 2000s, those of us deep in the fashion world all fell for the idea that there was one bag, an “it bag” that defined a season.

It started with the release of the Prada bowling bag. Then we were told it was Gucci’s Jackie O bag, refreshed by the house’s then-designer Tom Ford. I bought three, stupid me, in black, in brown and in a print.

Then, whoosh, it was the Fendi Baguette bag, a smallish, embellished bag that came in endless complex variations from satin to ostrich, beaded, embroidered and enamelled, a bag that completely changed the Fendi fortunes.

Naturally, every fashion house wanted to create an “it bag” for financial reasons. The pressure was on. There were waiting lists.

They cost at least a month’s wages and became increasingly ridiculous, designed to impress rather than deliver

It’s replica handbags: accessory labels do battle at London fashion week

replica mulberry

It is a sign of how business minded the British fashion industry now is that, just as Milan has Gucci and Prada slugging it out, London has its very own replica handbag wars. The prize money is considerable: 51% of all British women bought a handbag last year, contributing to a UK accessories market worth £2.7bn.

Equivalent figures for the sale of ironically deconstructed sweatshirts and one-legged trousers are unavailable, but handbags outlet are key to fashion’s bottom line. On Sunday at London fashion week, three labels went head to head in the battle to create this season’s It bag.

Mulberry’s return to the catwalk on Sunday was a high-stakes affair. This was the brand’s first full fashion show for three years, and followed a string of dismal sales figures from which it is only just starting to recover. New designer Johnny Coca is credited with the cult Trapeze bag from his time as accessories designer at Céline, but unproven as a brand’s overall creative director. What’s more, Mulberry and the two other London labels showcasing their mulberry replica handbags on Sunday – Anya Hindmarch and Hill & Friends – come to the contest with scores to settle with each other.

While cheap Mulberry was effectively out of the game, Anya Hindmarch annexed the fashion bandwidth which that label once owned: catwalk stunts (a London gay men’s choir in hi-vis) and amusing accessories (smiley face stickers, lucky dice charms) to sprinkle practical cheap mulberry handbags with fun dust. And last year, Emma Hill launched Hill & Friends, whose Mulberry-esque shapes and signature smiley face lock pick up where she left off when she stepped down as Mulberry’s creative director in 2013. Would Mulberry’s return muscle the others off its patch?

mulberry replica handbags
The answer was no. Mulberry, smartly, has moved on. While Anya Hindmarch and Hill & Friends go head-to-head over the luxury-with-a-sense-of-humour market that once belonged to Mulberry, Coca played his debut for fashion points, not for laughs. The dogs-on-the-catwalk larks of the Hill era have been written out of history, along with the logo associated with that period, which has been replaced by an older version in elegant font.

Classic replica Mulberry bag shapes that pre-date Hill’s tenure – the Bayswater, designed by Stuart Vevers in 2006, and the arch-shaped Colville from 1975 – have been revived, but with the construction altered for a more refined look – for example, the handles on the Bayswater are now slimmer and attached in such a way that they don’t flop when the bag is put down.

The vintage Mulberry shapes are mixed with a Céline-ish attitude which delights in the unexpected, the slightly “off”: there are flashes of green snakeskin and punky yellow, outsize silver chains, bags with leather panels that come apart using press studs. Mulberry is back, but not quite as you know it. In fashion, which thrives on newness, that’s a good thing.

It would be churlish not to warm to Hill & Friends, with its “Fashion just got friendlier” motto. The Happy Factory, a short film made for fashion week, introduced the Happy Zippy Bag, the Happy Night Out Bag and the rest of the label’s second collection. But while the message is sweet, it is also familiar: this is an aesthetic which has barely moved on, and the brutal truth is that fashion needs to be a bit cooler than this.

Anya Hindmarch’s show, entitled Talk Nerdy to Me, was a much slicker take on fashion for fun. It took motifs from early-era gaming – Pac-Man, Space Invaders, Tetris – to create an aesthetic that was both graphic and playful. There were some silly jokes (coat with mink pockets in the shape of fried eggs, anyone?) but the fake handbags themselves scored top points. A soft suede zip-pocketed satchel, a teddy bear-fur rucksack and a leather half-moon shoulder bag were eminently wearable, and just offbeat enough to be compelling.

Replica Mulberry bags a rise in sales and profits


Luxury brand replica Mulberry has fashioned a jump in sales and profits for the last year as shoppers were won over by new creative designer Johnny Coca’s replica handbags.

Mulberry said that its updated and lightweight version of its classic Bayswater leather handbag had become an “instant bestseller”, which boosted sales by 8pc to £168.1m during the year to the end of March.

Pre-tax profits also jumped by 21pc to £7.5m, heralding a significant turnaround from two years ago, when it was dogged by profit warnings and the loss of a creative director and chief executive.

Thierry Andretta, who joined cheap Mulberry last year, said that there was “good momentum” within the company.

Digital sales rose by almost 20pc to make up 15pc of sales as the company invested in new international sites and introduced click and collect options from its boutiques around the world.

UK retail sales also climbed by 10pc to £106.8m as tourist shoppers flocked to London to pick up bargains as the pound weakened following the European referendum.

Mr Andretta said that he was not too concerned about an impact on tourists shunning the capital following the terrorist attacks at London Bridge two weeks ago. He added that sales had already been a bit “softer” for the past six weeks partly due to the general election, but primarily because Mulberry had not had any new products in its shops since the Spring/Summer collection 10 weeks ago.

Mulberry recently announced that it would follow its larger luxury rival, Burberry, in adopting a ‘see now, buy now’ approach to catwalk collections, which means that shoppers can instantly purchase the shoes, mulberry replica handbags and clothes they see on the runway. Mr Andretta revealed that the fashion house had already tested the new approach with a capsule collection earlier this year.

The fashion house, which makes 50pc of its replica handbags in Somerset, is targeting Asia as a source of growth after recently launching a separate company with Challice, which will run its business in China, Hong Kong and Taiwan. Mulberry now has three shops in China, one in Taiwan and one in Hong Kong.

“After a tough couple of years, British heritage brand Mulberry is firmly back on track with Johnny Coca’s reinvention of the brand coming to fruition,” said Sofie Willmott at Global Data.

Demand for luxury goods in China spurs Burberry growth

replica mulberry

British luxury brand replica Burberry reported retail revenue of 478 million pounds ($613 million) during the quarter ending June 30, up 3 percent year-on-year.

Driven by this better than expected quarterly report, shares in Burberry climbed as much as 5 percent.

The result was attributed in part to solid growth on the Chinese mainland and a boost in Hong Kong sales. The broader Asia Pacific region recorded mid-single-digit percentage growth.

Sales in Britain remained strong, although growth has slowed, while the Americas remained weak.

In terms of sales channels, e-commerce experienced strong growth. Direct-to-consumer revenue continued to grow with mobile transactions now representing 40 percent of global sales. China revenues more than doubled compared to previous year.

Burberry attributed the strong performance in China to popular social media platforms such as WeChat which has more than 938 million users.

The company said its advertising campaign on WeChat for the launch of the new DK88 bag, which retails for 1,695 pounds, resulted in increased sales.

Other popular luxury brands including Longchamp and Mulberry also began selling replica handbags on WeChat in the Chinese market.

Consultancy Bain & Co said in a report that the Chinese mainland luxury goods market grew 4 percent in 2016, the first sign of revitalization in three years.

Due partly to a rebound in demand for luxury goods in China, industry leader LVMH and French luxury group Kering , which owns the Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent brands, both exceeded their forecast results in the quarter.

The big little bag debate: micro minis versus maxi holdalls – the season’s hottest replica handbags are total opposites

Fashion has a reputation for erring on the side of extreme.

When it decides that the Bardot is the neckline du jour, clavicles are exposed across the capital. When it commands that sleeves should be statement, shoulders puff and hands vanish accordingly.

And for several seasons now, the fashion gods have dictated that its most faithful followers swap their sensible-sized replica handbags for pouches barely big enough to fit an iPhone and an Amex card. And we have dutifully listened.

At Selfridges’ huge accessories hall, mini bags make up a colossal two- thirds of all sales. “The mini bag is now the most popular style we sell, and we have hundreds of options in store,” says Eleanor Robinson, director of accessories. “I think women love them because they feel more special than larger, practical styles. A mini bag is just right to hold your essentials rather than being weighed down carrying more than you really need.

If you’re wondering what constitutes a mini bag, Selfridges counts a height and width between 10-15cm and a depth of 8-13cm as ideal dimensions. Think smaller than a cross-body but bigger than a purse, with space to fit your iPhone, keys, a bank card and perhaps a lipstick, at a push. Among its current bestsellers is J.W.Anderson’s Mini Pierce replica mulberry bag and Stella McCartney’s Baby Bella, while summer’s fastest- selling mini bag is the half-moon Nile by Chloe. “We sold out of all styles and colours in four weeks,” adds Robinson, and in June the store launched a Chloe pop-up shop in its accessories hall dedicated to the style.

This month, Roland Mouret also embraces the micro-bag movement, shrinking his signature Classico Bag down to more diminutive proportions, while cult New York label Mansur Gavriel has added three sunny new colourways to its palm-sized Baby Bucket Bag offering. Clearly, small replica bags are big business.

But in line with being extreme, fashion also has a habit of contradicting itself. At the opposite end of the spectrum, bags large enough to comfortably accommodate your kitchen sink are also proving to be a hit this season. It began with Balenciaga’s striped leather shopper, a bag so sought- after that hordes of fashion students began ransacking laundrettes and market stalls up and down the East End in search of plastic replicas.

High-street purveyor of practicality COS was hot on its heels with its giant red-and-white striped canvas shopper which has proved popular with packhorses and day-trippers alike, while eagle-eyed shoppers may have already spotted that Mango’s spacious monochrome XXL leather shopper is set to hit stores in a new rainbow-striped incarnation this autumn.

Not to be outdone, Balenciaga’s creative director Demna Gvasalia has given stylish hoarders something else to covet next season in the form of similarly supersized sacks crafted from leopard print fur, marabou feathers and polka dot silk.

Representing the freedom of a woman’s body mulberry replica handbags

I had started out thinking mulberry replica handbags and purses were the same thing.I was a handbag newbie, an unpaid writer, an impartial observer hired as a ghost memoirist for the CEO of a luxury-handbag resale site. Having grown up in Los Angeles, I had a cursory sense of the major brands: Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Hermès—but like many of my bookish friends, I had dismissed such flashy handbags as frivolous.

As industrialization took hold, travel picked up too. The train case emerged, a prototype for the modern handbag, and became an outward sign of mobility. cheap mulberry bags also started to signify the freedom of a woman’s body. The layers of fussy underclothes and petticoats common before the late 19th century also allowed stowage of carrying bags underneath. But once women freed themselves from those garments, exposing more of their physical form, they lost the space for pockets. The external bag offered a practical solution.
