Mulberry Cara Delevingne Collection

After seeing 'sneak peeks' on both Mulberry and Cara Delevingne's Instagram feeds, I was so excited to see what they had created. At London Fashion Week, a press presentation was made from Claridges by both parties releasing the Cara Delevingne Collection for Mulberry. I am a massive fan of Mulberry bags (not a fan of the price though!) so you can imagine how I was feeling when I saw the images online.

Press releases given out at the event said - 'To Mulberry, Cara epitomises the brand values of British Heritage combined with London Cool'. This is most certainly true after seeing images of the bags, as they have the traditional Mulberry style but with bright colours, camouflage and stud detail for which Cara, and London, is know for.

The Cara Delevingne Collection features the classic Bayswater bag design (shape and handle placement) but they are all 3-way bags. Use as a backpack, perfect for running for that train! Use on the shoulder for all those work to dinner meeting you may have. Finally, these bags can be hand-held meaning they are perfect for creating maximum elegance at all times.

What's more, Cara actually did help with designing these bags. She chose the leathers, drew out designs and discussed the practical needs of the customer while still keeping Mulberry's understated elegance. Also each bag has a surprise element - think of opening a surprise parcel or letter - and these come is the shape a small lion rivet and a heart shape patch, which are both based on Cara's tattoos. Also, it is part of Mulberry's image that all their product are 'Made In England' and this is also one of Cara's tattoos, therefore this is also printed into the bottom of each bag.

This has to be my favourite bag from the entire collection. The taupe colour is beautiful and defiantly fits in with Mulberry's image of elegance. It is also a colour that will complement pretty much any outfit you chose to wear without it clashing. The gold studs are actually lion head rivets, matching Cara's finger tattoo and they also give the bag a grunge feel, as this is something that you generally see in that style and also in Cara's of duty style. However they are small and elegant rivets which suit the style of the bag and also Mulberry.

Oh how I wish I could have one of these bags! A girl can dream, right?!

What do you all think of the Cara Delevingne Collection for Mulberry?
