But let me start from the beginning. Solange Knowles was Vogue Today I’m Wearing girl for February. Every day she would post a picture on Vogue’s especially designed photo blog and write a note describing items of her ensemble. And while I have been following this feature for a while Solange stood out: she approached daily outfits with such eagerness and put so much effort into every detail from day 1 to 29 that only a true devotee to the fashion world can do. And over 29 days I developed a serious addiction of checking what the star is wearing and she never disappointed! Vivid patterns, colour blocking, tons of amazing shoes and striking accessories – all were put together perfectly. And now that is is 2th March, despite being very happy we finally entered spring, I do miss my daily style intake of Solangeness…
See her amazing 29 outfits here on Vogue.com and I bet you will share my style crush!

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.
