February Favorite: Cara, Mulberry

Thursday, 23 February 2017

Some brands just make you love fashion. The British brand Mulberry was for sure the one that made me fall in love with this world of glitter and futility. In the first Vogue Paris that I bought - almost ten years ago now, when I was 12 - there was an article about Mulberry. It was a short one, but as soon as I saw the pictures of the bag and read the story of the brand, I realized that fashion was actually way more than everybody around me was saying. Fashion was not 'stupid' and 'soul less'. Fashion was a real world, with real good ideas and real beauty, that you can grab with your hand. Like a Mulberry bag.
This brand is emblematic of  a British chic style with a touch of modernism. How could it not be with ambassadors such as Alexa Chung - and her marvelous 'Alexa Bag' I'm still dreaming of today - or Cara Delevingne, one of the most stylish British model who actually also had the chance to create a design with Mulberry, which did become the 'Cara Bag'. 

I can't really think of a better bag for a 21 - my God, 22 in a couple of weeks... - year old girl attending university, always busy, but who wants to stay stylish. This bag is everything. You can wear it as a backpack, which will be elegant and practical at the same time. Perfect size to put all of your mess in it - bit too small for the MacBook Air, but it won't kill us to take written notes if we can have such a pretty bag to go to our lectures, right? - yet not too big, and so avoiding 'the girl with a huge bag look' that we don't want. 
As a handbag, it is even more beautiful. You can carry it in your hand, and use the strap to have it on your shoulder, for a classy but cool look. Concerning the details, they are many on this purse. You can choose it with the golden lion heads decor, and have a pretty large choice of colors. But more, you can choose the option of natural leather! Which is a real plus. But well, let's dream of this dreamy bag.
