Who doesn’t like giveaways? I certainly do! Earlier this month I hosted my own for beautiful Daisy Jewellery silver and gold earrings but this time I had to share this one with you and it is hosted by Farfetch.com.
First of all a quick note on Farfetch.com: if you haven’t shopped there you are missing out as this online retailer handpicks fashion boutiques from around the world thus brings you the most amazing and absolutely unique selection of fashion items! That is why I often feature them here on my blog – some you would not find anywhere else.
And now back to give away: it is not just any bag that can be yours for free is you apply until 5th March, it is The IT bag by Alexander Wang – Rocco and this version is so summery in washed out yellow! I am in love. Softest leather, stud covered bottom and pastel shade – this bag is an arm candy worthy of anyone’s fashion wish list.

In retrospect I knew it was coming. After the success of naming a handbag after Alexa Chung, which was one of the major factors propelling Mulberry to fashion heights with the unprecedented speed for British label, having a new fashion muse and as trendy as Lana Del Rey was an obvious step. Indeed Mulberry was a first fashion establishment that recognised Lana’s appeal by hiring her to sing at their LA party. And now that even British Vogue gave her a seal of approval, calling a bag Del Rey was a perfect PR move: fashion world already had eyes on Mulberry for their Autumn/Winter 2012 catwalk show (star studded row would make any designer proud with Michelle Williams, Elizabeth Olsen, Olivia Palermo, Pixie Geldof and Downton Abbey actresses Laura Carmichael and Michelle Dockery to name a few) and having Lana float in with a brand new Del Rey bag just sent fashionistas and media into frenzy!
Mulberry’s Emma Hill said Lana inspired them with her vintage style and seductive voice. Indeed Del Rey bag does have a very vintage feel – add White Ostrich material (the one Lana was wearing for the show and Mulberry party in the evening) and you have a seductive feel indeed. I love Lana’s style (I wrote a post about her recently which you can read here), I love Mulberry, and guess what – I love new Mulberry Del Rey handbag.

Gucci and bamboo. There is nothing new in the combination as the label has been using the material for years. But the lack of surprise does not decrease the appeal.
Especially the appeal of Medium Top Handle Bag that was recreated with bamboo details. And as usual there is a wide choice of colour – purple grape, golden mettalic, silvery champagne, patent rose and even zebra print. But by far this royal blue leather stands out the most – a classic beauty that will be in fashion for years to come. The main attraction – I can see it looking great with anything from jeans based casual outfit to cocktail dress with heels.
And since it is certainly a multifunctional investment piece a £1370 price tag is a justifiable price to pay for Gucci’s must have handbag.
