She first carried the lilac version of the handbag in 2018, to the Global Ministerial Mental Health Summit. The black Mayfair first made its first appearance in the same year, during a visit to Leicester.
About the bag:
This structured boxy bag features a dainty top handle, gold hardware and a detachable strap. On the lilac bag, the strap is a gold metallic chain weaved with leather. There are two versions of the black bag, one with a chain strap and one with a leather strap.
The piece is crafted from full-grain Italian leather, which features a mock croc print. Aspinal’s signature shield lock adorns the front of the bag. It is engraved with the company’s logo. The back of the bag is embossed with the logo too.
While compact, the midi-sized bag has an external slip pocket, ideal for storing a small notebook, phone or travel card for easy access. The internal pocket is divided into three sections, large enough to fit all of your essentials.
This is a classic bag, with vintage-inspired styling, giving it timeless appeal.
The Midi Mayfair bag comes in a whopping 19 different styles, including a range of colours, finishes and strap options! And if that isn’t enough, Aspinal sell a smaller version of the bag (the Mini style) in 6 different colours (and there’s a clutch version with five colours!)
Does Kate Middleton own any other bags by Aspinal of London?
Yes, in addition to the two Mayfair bags, the Duchess owns a third piece by the Aspinal. It’s the Blue Heart clutch, designed in collaboration with a brand Kate regularly wears, Beulah London. The two companies donated 25% of profits from each sale to the United Nations Blue Heart Campaign.
