Mulberry's roots may be based in British heritage, but it has been looking to a more contemporary aesthetic of late. The inspiration for autumn/winter 2018 came from the age-old adage of opposites attracting.
“This collection is an exploration of a different facet of British style. We’ve looked at the aristocrat, and the rebel – this woman is both,” says creative director Johnny Coca. “Britishness isn’t about one culture or one way of dressing. It’s about mixing elements together and creating something unique. It’s about being and looking different, about personality and self-expression.”
As well as re-imaginings of classic styles such as the Amberley, expect eclectic new offerings. The Leighton, for instance, is a sleek and playful addition. The supple leather bag, with its oh-so-appealing slouch, keeps with the brand’s desire to offer “versatile femininity”, while its trio of straps allows for an instant switch up in styling.
