Have you welcomed properly the Year of the Ram? Then you sure already know that to ward off misfortune and bring good luck and wealth, Mulberry had not thought twice and decided to celebrate the Chinese New Year -which took place on Thursday 19 February- pushing the boat out.
As customs dictate that houses have to be filled with decorative objects in red colour that symbolize good fortune, the brand managers have decided to reinterpret some of its mythical bags, in a beautiful red poppy colour but in mini size.
This reinterpretation of the Mini Cara Delevingne Bag model has been made in limited edition (there will only be 88 units) in Rookery (Somerset – England); and has been dedicated to the model and apprentice of actress Cara Delevingne; that is why she visited in June this factory and had fun trying to replicate all the steps required to produce one of these bags cutting, sewing, polishing or even personalizing them, to give them her particular touch.
As a curiosity, note that the master craftsmen who made this bag have stamped a ram and a 2015 in the leather cover that protects the key which opens the snap fastener of this quilted bag -which also has some straps that allow to wear it on the back as if it were a backpack-, as a nod to one of the twelve symbols in the Chinese zodiac.
For Chinese culture, those who are born under the sign of the Ram will have an innate artistic sensitivity. Skillful people in relation to horoscopes also ensure that, if we make the most of it, this will be a year of great opportunities. Hopefully!
To ease that we surround ourselves by objects symbolizing good fortune, Mulberry managers had the beautiful courtesy of also including a small gift that will be given to us when acquiring one of these bags.
This is a cutout printed and die-cut in red leather reproducing the shape of an adorable ram, which we can assemble to place it near the keyboard of our computer or on our night stand so it protects us and attracts good fortune.
The perfect finishing touch to commemorate an ancient tradition and officially welcome the Chinese New Year, don’t you think? Price of Mini Cara Delevingne Bag: 1,190 euros.
