What Cara Wants

Untamed but civilized, quirky yet tasteful—you could describe both Cara Delevingne and the U.K.'s Wilderness Festival that way. "I am British and this is a very British festival, so it just makes a whole lot of sense to me," said Delevingne about the decision to launch her new bag collection, designed with another very British institution, Mulberry, at the weekend-long event. Glancing around at the gorgeous walled garden on a countryside estate in Cornbury Park, Oxfordshire, she added, "This is all so me."

Now in its fourth year, the Wilderness Festival brings together musical, culinary, literary, and theatrical stars. This year's headliners were London Grammar, Metronomy, Burt Bacharach, Jessie Ware, and Sam Smith. Mulberry's picnic, complete with a goodie-bag-stuffed vintage Land Rover dubbed the Cara-van, was a bustling get-together of London friends and familiar industry faces. Actor Douglas Booth said he'd known Delevingne for a long time. Also on hand: model Jade Parfitt, stylist Camille Bidault-Waddington, and cofounder of the Storm modeling agency Simon Chambers.

The model of the moment sported her new Cara Delevingne bag in oxblood natural leather. Its removable shoulder straps mean it can be worn as a tote or as a backpack; she said she was keen to create a collection that could keep up with the pace of a busy modern woman. That would explain why MyTheresa's buying director, Justin O'Shea, had his eye on the collection six months ago. He summarized, "It's very cool, very young, and very trendy."
