Lust Have - Mulberry Suffolk

My love of Mulberry is well-known and I was eagerly waiting for the unveiling of their new Spring/Summer 2014 Collection at London Fashion Week.  I wasn't disappointed either with their Autumn/Winter Campaign shoot, the location, the whimsical props and of course the launch of a new bag that's bound to take it's place amongst other Mulberry iconics - the Mulberry Suffolk.

Available in a range of gorgeous colourways, it features a vintage inspired structured frame top that harks back to the era of very proper English handbags.  In fact, it reminds me greatly of a bag that my grandmother had when I was growing up, and she was very proper and very English and very tea on the lawn with the best silver! All good connotations for me.  This bag has the usual signature postman's lock and can be worn either over the shoulder, as it has a detachable strap, or in the hand.  The expected attention to detail can be seen from every angle and is joining my ever-growing wish list of Mulberry bags.

Okay, swooning put aside for now, let's just have a quick look at their Campaign shoot for Autumn/Winter.  Held at Shotover House in Oxfordshire, it demanded a real tree to be constructed within a large and grand drawing room and was perfectly delivered by Shona Heath, set designer.  They used real owls to help Cara Delevigne showcase the new collection and it's just quite simply, stunning.

How breathtaking is this?  Have you been following London Fashion Week?  What's been your favourites?
