There have been rumours brewing for quite sometime about a possible Cara Delevingne collaboration with Mulberry. The 21 year old fronted their SS14 print campaign – you remember the ones with all the politely behaved animals? – and has been vocally supportive of the brand in recent interviews.
This weekend saw that relationship come to fruition with a new Cara Delevingne and Mulberry handbag collection announced in the environs of Claridges Hotel during the ongoing London Fashion Week. Ranging in size and colour, one bag is even an ode to Delevingne’s famous lion finger tattoo.
Mulberry have partnered with IT girl Alexa Chung in the past with their best-selling Alexa bag. However their handbags sales have been dropping in recent years. As one of the most in demand models at the moment, and a burgeoning actress to boot, the brand will be putting a lot of faith in Delevingne's golden touch.
