This week sees Cara's collaboration with Mulberry finally hit stores - laid-back luxury has returned and we for one couldn't be happier


Once again London Fashion Week is just around the corner which means by our less-than-precise calculations, it's been an awfully long wait since we first heard about Cara Delevingne's collaboration with Mulberry.

Anticipation levels have not dropped below "must have" since the initial announcement and have been helped with the recent release of the brand's autumn/winter campaign. Shot by Tim Walker, the series is a gorgeously British affair celebrating the brands rich rural heritage with, Cara centre stage of course.

The collection promised to appeal to one and all with the luxurious yet ultimately functional designs. Usability was key to Cara's creations with everyday wear being the ultimate goal - judging by the fact she is now rarely pictured without her's, we feel that this aim has been passed with flying colours.

There's something of a split in the D&E office with regard to choosing our favourite piece from the collection although there's definitely a lot of love surrounding the limited edition creation complete with lion rivets, inspired by Cara's tattoo, naturally. Browse the collection below and decide for yourself, in the meantime we're off to spread the good news "laid-back luxury has returned!"
