The Limited Edition Julie Verhoeven for Mulberry Handbag
If you happened to check out the Mulberry site then you might have noticed there is a new collaboration project out and ready for the picking. Last season Mulberry worked with Giles Deacon for the limited edition punk chic handbag line, now for the fall-winter 2007 season Mulberry has teamed up with the illustrious illustrator Julie Vernhoeven to create a vibrant collection that will make people re-think the term â€œClassic Britishâ€?.
â€œThe Brief was to be both vibrant and bold and a little cheeky.. We worked around the traditional English rose icon with the thorny surprises â€“ surrealist and nonsense elements thrown into the mix. English eccentricities and traditions gone a little askew, but with fondness and femininity.â€? – Julie Verhoeven on the Mulberry Handbag Collaboration.
Pictured above is one of the bags available in the collaboration project. Itâ€™s the super lightweight canvas tote with the Julie Verhoeven print on each side â€“ a girl with rose red colored hair with a rose leaf in mouth and on the other side a grey and white print of a spoon with a rose bud. This handbag also features leather straps and an interior painted in hot bright purple. Discover it at mulberry where it retails for around $300.
