Mulberry was founded in 1971 in the English county of Somerset and its heart remains in the very same place today, nestled next to towns and villages in the fold of the rolling Mendip Hills. Many of Mulberry’s leather goods are made in England, brought to life by the skilled hands of nearly 700 local craftsmen and craftswomen working in The Rookery in Chilcompton, and The Willows in Bridgwater. Inspired by the cool of the city and the craft of the British countryside, Mulberry products are created from the finest leathers, made to be beautifully functional and enduringly stylish.
The Mulberry Autumn Winter 2014 season finds inspiration in the colour of the British countryside, embracing rich oaks, misty greys, deep greens and intense oxblood taken from across the country, from the mystery of the highlands to the lush rolling hills of Mulberry’s home in Somerset.
The collection celebrates juxtaposition in its style and tailoring. Oversized versus miniature, subtlety opposes flair, fluidity contrasts with sharpness. The ready to wear collection finds elegance and freshness reworking classic English tailoring, reinterpreting iconic detailing and designing with practicality in mind. The idea of the ‘classic’ is tinged with sensuality in a collection that blends tradition with the unexpected.
