Cara Delevingne leads finale at Mulberry’s S/S 2014 runway show
Mulberry Bows Out of LFW – Normally a staple of the London Fashion Week schedule, Mulberry revealed that it will not be showing at the upcoming fall 2014 runway shows this upcoming February. The English brand cites a search for its new creative director as the reason why. Former designer Emma Hill’s last show for the brand was the Mulberry spring-summer 2014 collection, previewed this September. However, Vogue UK notes the brand will do something in lieu of a runway show to be announced at a later date.
Hill Says Goodbye to Mulberry – After six years at helm of Mulberry, creative director Emma Hill presented her final collection for the brand’s spring 2014 runway show at London Fashion Week. The outing was elegant yet practical with a color palette of basic black and white infused with touches of red, nude and blue. Hill celebrated inherently English themes such as tea parties, estate gardens and even bull dogs with her playfully demure looks. The Mulberry woman was feminine in bold flower motifs yet restrained in leather dresses and boxy tops. Large stripes in loose-fitting shirt and skirt combinations brought an ease to Hill’s sophisticated designs.
Mulberry Take Two – After an initial preview yesterday, more images have been released from Mulberry’s fall 2013 campaign featuring Cara Delevingne. The British model does her best moody pout surrounded by owls and forest scenery. Who else but Tim Walker could shoot such a magical set? Cara flaunts the Alexa bag and other styles in the enchanting images. (WWD)
Cara for Mulberry – British model Cara Delevingne lands yet another campaign for the fall 2013 collection from Mulberry. Cara revealed the snap shot by Tim Walker on her Instagram earlier today. The image shows the It Girl posing against a tree filled with owls. Clad in all black, save her oversized sea foam Alexa bag, Cara is the very picture of elegance.
Gold Leaf – Lana Del Rey attended Mulberry’s fall-winter 2013 fashion show in London on February 17th, looking quite elegant. The American singer wore an embroidered dress, bow high heel pumps and small Dey Rey bag from the label.
The Willow Bag – Made exclusively in Mulberry’s British factories, the new Willow collection focuses on English craftsmanship at its finest. Named after Mulberry’s second home factory, The Willows, which is set to open in Somerset late 2013–the bag will launch in US stores on February 11th. Produced in calf, ostrich and alligator; the Willow is available in regular, oversized and small totes as well as regular and oversized clutches. Supermodel Kate Moss (pictured above) carried the tote during fashion week.
Sundance Beauty – Actress Kate Bosworth attended the Sundance Film Festival yesterday, and looked perfectly understated in a front drape dress from the fall-winter 2012/2013 collection of Mulberry.
Awakening in a Dream – For its spring 2013 campaign, Mulberry once again taps British photographer Tim Walker for a series of dreamy images.
