Still in regular rotation as arm candy on the Kate Mosses of the world, the Mulberry Darwin bag has enjoyed a long moment in the sun. Frankly, I shudder to think about the number of times that woman switches up her tote. Just think: Listerine strips, sunglasses, wallet, keys, kid junk, all shuttled about daily so she isn't caught by paparazzi with the same accessories. Must be tough being a style icon with dozens of thousand-dollar purse choices.

The Mulberry Darwin did the short trickle down from celebrity product placement to the front row of every fashion show last October. The Annas and Carines of the world slung off their Balenciagas and Fendis in favour of this, much less tarty, why nearly sensible, style with little saddle pouches in the front. Then the junior editors and socialites got their Mulberrys.

Now, the rest of us get ours. Roots has rejigged this instant classic and called it the Editor Bag, after the fashion editors who fanned it a hit "it" bag.

Roots leather accessories are rocking right now; on the heels of last year's Emily bag smash, the Editor is $298. (A smaller version, called, adorably, the Junior Editor, is $198).

And the latest, latest is the white version, to go with all the new white clothes I plan on spilling spaghetti sauce on.
