REINVENT THE WHEEL. Assemble a next-level cheese plate, recommends Canadian chef Jamie Kennedy:
Why this is the ultimate fall handbag update.
Because it’s from Mulberry, the It Brit heritage brand, which has gifted the world with many a wait-list-worthy bag: the Bayswater, the Willow and the Alexa, inspired by Chung and carried by everyone from Princess Eugenie to Solange. Because it’s designed by Cara Delevingne, model, rebel, occasional wearer of hot-dog costumes and constant maker of crazy faces. Because the gold lion rivets are inspired by the supe’s famous finger tattoo. Because it can be worn as a backpack or carried as a top-handle or shoulder bag. Because of that leather. Because it’s cool, fun and awesome and would make you feel cool, fun and awesome every single time you carry it. Case closed. Limited-edition “Cara Delevingne” bag in taupe silky classic calfskin, Mulberry ($2,700, mulberry.com)
“Include some goat’s-milk and sheep’s-milk cheeses along with your cow’s-milk varieties, and aim to include a washed-rind cheese, a bloomy-rind cheese and a blue and a cheddar. Don’t forget the accoutrements, like quince jelly, toasted walnuts and wild-rice
crackers. Your guests will be impressed.” S.L.
