The leather Mulberry Clipper holdall has long been thought of as a timeless travel icon. Made from luxurious and unashamedly thick leather that ages beautifully with age and use, the Clipper has minimal hardware or branding, suiting every travel style and ready to be passed down the generations.

Each season one or two new leather finishes are offered, but of course, you can still find it in classic Mulberry Natural Leather in Oak, Chocolate and Black, as well as Grey Soft Grain Leather.

Rich chose the Clipper in Grey for the shoot, testing it out with some of his usual travel accessories and inspiring us to travel in style.

“The clipper bag is made for a day trip or a weekend away. It holds a change of clothes, some daily essentials, a 35mm camera and a few spare rolls of film. The warm grey tones of the leather also make it an ideal neutral accompaniment to any attire.”

Eternally practical and inherently beautiful, Mulberry luggage and travel accessories are what one should arrive with when visiting the country (or any country for that matter). Rich took his to Bath, the city where he lives with partner and Cereal magazine Editor Rosa Park.

“Bath has a very calming effect on me and there is real a sense of history here – it has somehow managed to preserve it’s classic look and feel, despite having been modernised in recent years. The city has retained its aesthetic heritage thanks to wide-spread architectural use of Bath stone, providing it with an iconic honey-hued palette. It is a unique place in the world and somewhere I always find my self coming back to.”
