Luxury fashion group Mulberry has unveiled a new collection of bags in collaboration with British model Cara Delevingne, hoping to improve its fortunes after a profit warning and problems overseas. She has also been the face of two recent Mulberry campaigns.
“I designed my Cara bag to look elegant but I also wanted the collection to be functional and practical when travelling,” she told Vogue UK of the small leather goods offering for Mulberry. “The accessories do exactly the same. Make-up pouches, passport holders, phone covers; they are all so useful when you are rushing around and they keep your handbag orderly! This is a beautiful range that complements the main collection and I have also personalised it. Look out for the lion rivets and the camo pieces; my favourite print.”
The made-in-England Cara Delevingne Collection, which features three sizes in three different finishes, was launched by Mulberry in London. Featuring wallets, purses, iPad sleeves, phone covers, zipped pouches, and passport holders, the range is created in camouflage-printed leather (inspired by Delevingne’s love of hiding from her teachers at school), and classic Mulberry oak – and has thus-far proved almost as well-liked as the girl herself.
Prices of the new range, Mulberry’s first celebrity collaboration since it teamed up with U.S. singer Lana Del Rey in May 2012, will start at $1,500.
