Mulberry certainly know how to create a stir – first team up with beautiful songstress du jour, Lana del Rey, then name a handbag after her and while you’re at it, have her entertain all your VIP guests at a private party in Chateau Marmont during Fashion Week.
So after all that anticipation, the Mulberry Del Rey handbag finally landed in shops this week (£795 online, €990 at Brown Thomas). Inspired by the singer’s signature retro look, it’s the first time the brand has collaborated with a star since launching its best-selling Alexa satchel. A retro take on the Mulberry Bayswater, we think, yet £200 more expensive.
Pictured above, Lana has a custom made Del Rey in White Ostrich and as Emma Hill (Mulberry’s Creative Director) says: ‘The white with the gold accent suited Lana perfectly – it’s glamorous, and a little bit retro!’
For the rest of us mere mortals, the vintage style bag comes in black and deer brown, with more colours (Burgundy, blue and white) to follow.
Availability: Shop the Del Rey online (£795) and at Brown Thomas Dublin, Cork, Limerick and Galway (€990).
P.S Passing through London Heathrow at the weekend, I picked up these gorgeous Mulberry SS12 postcards, which are complimentary! Pop into your nearest Mulberry store to get your hands on some – getting one of these Brighton pier and ice cream themed cards by post will brighten up someone’s day.
