Mulberry’s Lily Bag was an instant hit. There was nothing overly inventive about the design, but the design just works. And the price, compared to many other shoulder bags, is fairly reasonable.
For Spring 2011 Mulberry decided to give us an option of the Lily that is not only much more expensive but also blinged out. Yes, I just used the word bling because it is so fitting in the case of the Mulberry Jewelled Lily.
The interesting thing about Mulberry’s Jeweled Lilly is the process that it takes to create it. Each bag takes approximately 18 hours to make as much of the process is crafted by hand.
The production of a Jewelled Lily is a concoction of hand-cut leather, classic Mulberry components, pots and pots of crystals and plenty of love, care and attention. The same style and size as the regular Lily made in natural leather, this version has that extra sparkle courtesy of 2596 Swarovski crystals and 460 manually applied Mulberry rivets. The cutting of the leather, applying of the crystals and rivets, and the finishing of the bag is all carried out in the UK and takes approximately 18 hours per bag. The delicate nature of attaching so many individual details means that no two bags are exactly the same, making the Jewelled Lily a truly exclusive addition to your Mulberry collection.
This reincarnation of the bag is a limited edition piece and retails for Â£3574 via Mulberry. Do you like what Mulberry has done with this bag?
