Cara Delevingne for Mulberry
In typical Cara Delevingne fashion, our favourite supermodel announced her collaboration with British heritage label Mulberry by tweeting a teaser video and a picture of the 'Made in England' tattoo on her foot, alongside 'Made in England' in blue leather, with the caption 'coming soon'. Yesterday we got a sneak peek at the handbag collection up close and personal ahead of its general release in August. In a word: Ahhhmazing.
The Mulberry Cara Delevingne bags have a three-in-one style, with a mini, large and medium to be worn on the back - for running from the gym to the office - on the shoulder or hand held, for maximum elegance at all times. Each bag is stamped with a bit of Cara herself. Mulberry told us that Cara wanted each bag to be like opening a letter and discovering a special surprise – as inside there is a lion rivet and a heart shaped patch based on her tattoo, as well as 'Made In England' engraved on the bottom of each bag.
Bestie Rihanna has already been spotted rocking one of Cara's creations, but obvs she wouldn't just grab any one off the shelves, the camouflage haircalf backpack was customised for her, 'RiRi' engraved inside and the bag tinted with hues of purple; her favourite colour.

The collaboration, which was officially announced just a couple of months ago was apparently top secret, with Grazia Daily learning that Cara was taken in and out of the Mulberry offices in a blacked out car during the entire process, with absolutely everyone who had anything to do with the collection - including caterers and the like (!) - had to sign non-disclosure agreements. But Cara dropped some heavy hints in June of last year, exclusively telling Grazia Daily 'My favourite Mulberry bag would be the Cara bag…actually that hasn’t been made yet! I want to design a Mulberry bag, there needs to be a Cara bag. I have so many ideas, Mulberry need to call me.' Well, that was a quick turnaround!
According to Cara this is a bag for everyone, as she said 'My Granny will like this bag. She's one hundred and two years old. My five year old cousin will probably like this bag. He's a boy.' Sold? We are! Join the waiting list on Mulberry.com
We also had a look at the Mulberry Autumn Winter 2014 collection which features gorgeous slouchy bags, super on trend slip on haircalf trainers which we must say would match perfectly with Cara's camouflage bags, classic British paisley reworked into Ready to Wear pieces and gorge hand-drawn silk and lace detailing on blouses and dresses.
