As we wait with baited breath for Cara's Mulberry collection to hit the shops, she's given us a taster of what's to come with an amazing behind the scenes video of their collaboration
Cara Delevingne's fashion take-over is about to hit the next level, as her very own bag range for Mulberry is set to hit stores come September. In the meantime, she's flaring our desire to hold one for ourselves even more with this latest move.
Mulbs HQ shared with us this stunning behind the scenes video that documents their collaboration with the model every step of the way, giving us a real insight into Cara's new venture.
Kicking off at London's Paddington Station, we hop on-board a train with Cara as she talks us through just what this partnership means to her. She confides that the inspiration that she provides the brand with works as a 'two-way street', and that their influence on the fashion industry has made just as much on an impact on her.
Cara can be seen in the black and white video getting stuck in to the design process. From sketching out drawings and brain-storming ideas to trying her hand at sewing, she really has made every effort to immerse herself in the bags that will carry her name.
Practicality played a big part in the design make-up too, with Cara admitting the bag she used during her school-days was more like a 'sack with holes in it... it wasn't practical' - not exactly what you'd expect from fashion's finest. She makes the point that as women, many things make up our lives - hobbies, lifestyles, jobs and interests - and that her bag collection provides you with a style that will work seamlessly for every aspect of your life. In other words, it's a cost-per-wear no-brainer.
From tiny metal lion heads, to an embossed 'Made In England' stamp, the models very own tattoos have served as inspiration for the bags unique adornment, meaning every one really does carry an authentic piece of Cara. If that's not a selling point, we don't know what is. Roll on September.
