What with Alexa, Daria and Tillie, Mulberry has delivered its fair share of quaintly-named and astoundingly beautiful bags over the past few season.

Emma Hill really has breathed life into the English heritage brand by bringing a whole bunch of colourful characters to compliment our outfits – but the Lily has to be a real classic.

Its cute, box-shaped size and glistening chain strap make Lily the timeless party companion, and this snake effect version of the classic bag is totally modern, subtly referencing the reptile sub-trend that was also heavily featured on the autumn runways.

As a bonus, with Mulberry you always know you’re getting quality: a rich leather finish with a soft suede lining, signed off with a signature gold Postman’s lock with detachable key.

We’ll be wearing this with a bright party dress at every party we ever go to. Forever.

Mulberry snake effect Lily bag, £525, available at Matches.
