Autumn/ Winter 2014-15 Mulberry
“In that first meeting I was quite strong about wanting it to be practical, something for a modern-day woman – or man – and not just doing one job,” explained Delevingne. “I’m such a tomboy that my first handbags were Peruvian gap year bags. But my first ever real handbag was a Mulberry bag.” So, really, it was a match made in heaven. “I never ever dreamed this would happen,” she added, clearly very happy with the outcome. In fact, the whole process was something she loved being involved with, even going so far as to doing the fabric cutting at the factory. “It was epic,” she enthused, revealing that the first bag she ever made was for her GCSE textiles class. That one didn’t turn out quite so well. “I definitely would have got an A with a Mulberry one,” she joked.
In a very Cara style, the three bags are little backpack designs that can be carried by hand too and come in a variety of fabrications including camouflage haircalf and quilted leather. Is a second collection on the cards? “We’ll see,” said Delevingne who, meanwhile, is plentifully busy with films, fashion and music. “Everything I do I love so much. Every day I wake up with a smile on my face,” she said.
