British model Cara Delevingne is everywhere you look these days with her modelling, stepping into acting and singing, her perfect full eyebrows (it’s not fair how wonderful those brows are), and now she’s a designer for Mulberry. The blonde stunner has recently launched her first collection for the British brand showcasing her quirky yet elegant style with 12 eye catching bags that will be available for A/W14.
As if we didn’t need another reason to admire the 21 year old Victoria Secret model her first attempt at being a fashion designer doesn’t fail to impress. 6 backpacks and 6 handbags make up the collection of eye catching colours, sleek styles and classy urban wear. Girls really do love their handbags and Ms Delevingne has truly given the world a collection of bags to die for, or a collection that will definitely break the bank with the cheapest price tag starting at £890 going all the way up to £2,500 – a large amount of over drafts might be getting used.
The collection was accompanied by an elegant and natural video with Cara showcasing her designs in a modest white dress and flawless makeup and hair, but with so much on offer we’ve come up with our top 5 favourite bags that we need to have in our lives right now to make us all a little more Cara.
Limited Edition taupe silky classic calf with lion rivets
The must have number in the entire collection. A cream brown bag featuring gold lion’s heads, possibly to match the model’s finger tattoo, completes the bag that will bring elegance to absolutely any outfit; seriously, rocking a tracksuit with this number on your arm will bring utter style and class to it. The colour complimented by the gold with the choice to wear it as a handbag or carrier bag is the item that has showcased Cara’s talents as a designer amongst all her other skills.
Khaki camouflage hair calf backpack
One of the first backpacks in the collection this number can be worn with street style or alongside an evening outfit. The deep camouflage colours makes the backpack the perfect accessory to bring an edge to any outfit and make it look effortlessly cool.
Large quilted bag in black nappa
A simple offering to the collection that can be used for everyday use, but remember that price tag if you’re taking it on a night out, you wouldn’t want any accidents. The gold plated lock on the bag front makes this simple bag a little bit more of a statement product but otherwise it is classy and simple.
Indigo quilted nappa backpack
Similar to the black bag but with an edge, a bright deep blue edge at that. If the black nappa bag is a tad too formal for you the indigo backpack design is eye catching with silver plated locks to match the vibrant blue. The backpack is petit and perfect for everyday use without the indigo being too overpowering.
Mini monochrome camouflage hair calf
A second offering from camouflage with a twist and removable straps allowing for a miniature handbag to appear when it’s time for an outfit change. The bag has a fur look on the camouflage adding to the cool style that all the bags have on offer making it yet another design that we need to have sitting in our wardrobes.
So…time to start saving.
