The Modern Nostalgia of Mulberry's Latest Muse — Lana Del Rey

Mulberry’s newest muse, sultry singer and model Lana del Rey is the latest starlet since Alexa Chung to have a Mulberry handbag named after her.

The aptly named “Del Rey” is a medium-sized duffle with a front flap and rounded silhouette reminiscent of 1950s styles.

The bag, which starts at a cool $1250, also comes with a tasseled accessory and is available in a variety of colors. The classic shape was inspired by the singer whose Veronica Lake-like waves and retro-inspired fashion has been featured in numerous editorials. Lana has openly discussed her modern vintage style by describing herself as a “gangsta-Nancy Sinatra” and has taken the music and fashion world by storm since the release of her latest album, “Born to Die.”

Lana was also recently signed as a model in early January 2012 by Next Model Management.

Emma Hill, Mulberry Creative Director, said, “I love Lana’s nostalgic references to bygone glamour and the fact that her look is retrospective yet so modern. This inspired us to create a bag that was timeless, refined and elegant.”

The Del Rey debuted at Mulberry’s London Fashion Week show on February 19th as part of a luxurious collection inspired by the wild and the wooded.  Huge cutouts of the beasts from the children’s book “Where the Wild Things Are” flanked the runway. And Lana, a wild thing in her own right, was front row at the show with her own gold and white Del Rey.

She wore a simple white baseball jacket and collared oxford shirt—a true blue American in London. The singer later performed her hit, “Blue Jeans” at the Mulberry post-show dinner.
