Mulberry introduces the Jewelled Lily

This week Mulberry announced the release of their new Jewelled Lily. Exclusive for SS11, this update on the classic Lily bag offers all the plus points of the bag we know and love – with a very fashion twist.

The beautiful embellished gem is fresh for spring and combines the perfect mini bag size with the flexibility to be worn as a clutch or shoulder bag. The sparkling revamp comes in the shape of a shower of 3000 show stopping Swarovski crystals.

Handmade in the UK, the bespoke beauty differs with each piece, guaranteeing the wearer a taste of haute couture history. Its unique craftsmanship, spring-like warm golden tones and delicate feminine crystals guarantee it to be a sure fire hit with the fash-pack, as well as securing its position as this season’s must have.

As much as this striking bag packs a punch, so does the price tag – it will set you back an astonishing £3,500. With the classic Lily retailing at around £500, is this glam treat worth the extra, or worth it at all? TELLUS what you think!

Pretty in pink

This season much has been made of neon brights, but if these punchy colours aren’t for you then fear not, because pastels are still big news for SS11.

Get your designer fix from Hussein Chalayan, who has consistently showed pastels for the last decade, or even Chanel with their stunning range of classic two pieces, revamped in pastel tones.

This summer wear your jeans in shades of sorbet, from lemon to raspberry, and anything in between – as long as it’s not blue. I love the Current/Elliot range which are also a flattering mid calf length. Even a muted grey is part of this light tone palette, or to ease the transition into these summer colours, start simple with MACs SS11 collection.

Create the look with Whistles and their shades of pastel pink – we particularly like their dusky pink and silver slouchy jumper. Mix with white and grey tones and gold jewellery for easy chic, or try with those brights if you’re feeling daring. These great shades can be dressed up or down – just make sure to wear them now to bring a bit of sunshine to your wardrobe.
