I am going to be honest: I am prejudiced. When I hear a celebrity has designed a collection or opened a restaurant I wonder what on earth makes them think they have the authority to do this. However, Victoria Beckham and now Cara Delevingne have proved me wrong.
The modelling world’s favourite off the wall star, Cara that is, has teamed with British leather legend Mulberry for this ingenious three-way portable bag. Embracing Britain’s fearless, yet always practical, approach to fashion the ‘Cara’ can be worn as a rucksack, a shoulder bag or handbag. If there is any doubt the ‘Cara’ is not British then look at the stamp on the inside of the bag as each piece is made in Mulberry’s factory in Somerset.
“Cara wanted each bag to be like opening a letter with a lovely surprising touch.” So inside you can find a small lion rivet and a heart shaped patch based on Cara’s heart tattoo. Cara said: “I want there to be hidden gems inside, based on things that are personal to me, which my tattoos definitely are.”
This bag features two fixed short leather handles and two adjustable shoulder straps. It can be worn in three ways: as a backpack; a shoulder bag; or hand-held. The Cara is smooth blend of classic satchel, evening bag and everyday rucksack.
The Vital Statistics
- Zip Pocket on the front of the bag
- Two adjustable leather shoulder straps
- Flap closure with signature metal Postman’s Lock
- Side gussets with adjustable buckle detailing
- Zip & slip pockets inside
- Small lion rivet inside
- Heart shape patch inside
- Keyring loop inside
I am seriously tempted by the camouflage one, I should be championing British industry after all. Now, will it be the small, medium or large?
