She claims that a special someone fitted her better than her favourite sweater, but I doubt he would look as good on her arm as her own Del Rey handbag.
Hours before their Autumn/Winter 2012 catwalk show, Mulberry announced their new bag had been named after the singer who appealed to them because of her old-school glamour combined with her sense of fun. The simple classic design is adorned with twin grab handles and will be available from May in shades of oak, black forest, berry, tanned and more.
Much love was passed between the two parties with Mulberry Creative Director, Emma Hill saying, ‘I love Lana’s nostalgic references to bygone glamour and the fact that her look is retrospective yet so modern. This inspired us to create a bag that was timeless, refined and elegant, yet with a beautiful practicality that would suit any woman. We love its perfect proportions and effortless simplicity. As soon as the sketches were completed it felt so familiar, loaded with classic Mulberry heritage DNA.’
Lana was just as thrilled, saying ‘I love the design, a perfect mix between old school Hollywood and contemporary style. It’s an honour that such a classic and prestigious brand would name a bag after me’. She was pictured at the show swinging a super-luxe white croc print version from her arm, grinning from ear to ear. I would be too!
