This Is How Mulberry Turns Lana Del Rey Into A Handbag

Let's take a closer look at Lana, shall we? No, not the singer with the bee-stung lips and brooding tunes — we're talking about the gorgeous Mulberry handbag which she's inspired.
In this new video, every detail of the singer's namesake carryall gets a close-up moment. Filmed in the British fashion house's factory, the video takes the handbag from sheets of creamy taupe leather to industrial-sized sewing machines where we see practically every perfectly placed stitch that holds the bag together. From raw materials to finished product, the video takes us along for the ride, with Lana (the artist) playing in the background, and Lana (the bag) eventually making its way to stores.

However, this video was not only released as an ode to the craftsmanship and talent that goes into each product, it also comes just in time to welcome the Lana bag to stores in three dreamy new options — gold-metallic snake, ink-blue sparkle croc, and bark-brown metallic fur print. No matter your Lana of choice, after you see this labor of love, you'll probably never look at the top-handled handbag the same way again.
