Remember that secret Sunday date Mulberry was talking about? Turns out it was a super secret photo call at Claridge’s in London to reveal that top model Cara Delevingne has designed a special collection for the British heritage brand.

Says Mulberry: “Cara is internationally renowned for her unique style. She is much loved for her quirky spirit and 'joie de vivre' and is a leading light of the fashion and entertainment worlds. To Mulberry she epitomises the brand values of British heritage combined with London cool.”

The collection is composed of three bags – a large, a medium and a mini size. Each features top handles and the signature Mulberry postman’s lock and can be transformed into a backpack. Cara has provided some unlikely inspiration in the form of her tattoos – her lion finger tattoo has been translated into gold lion rivets (limited edition, naturally) and her ‘Made in England’ foot tattoo became a stamp on the bags’ bases. Of this Cara said, “I want there to be hidden gems inside, based on things that are personal to me, which my tattoos definitely are.”

If you’re keen to get your hands on one, sign up for the waiting list now – we’re predicting the gold lion rivets will already have been oversubscribed.
