Mulberry is one of fashions biggest success stories. It started life in the hippy era and is now one of the quintessential British brands.
However, in spite of being a fashionista favourite it remains true to its countryside heritage. And thats really what makes it work as a desirable investment brand. The clothes, bags and beautiful accessories youll find in the Mulberry store on The Avenue in Manchesters Spinningfields, as well as the stores in Selfridges, Harvey Nichols and House of Fraser, are heritage pieces of the future and will remain beloved wardrobe staples forever.
People often ask how we adapt the countryside tradition of our brand to fit in with the urban contemporary styles and the answer remains the same: we dont want to dilute any of the heritage, we want to celebrate it! says Creative Director Emma Hill.
And theres a country girl theme to the A/W Mulberry collection in the fabrics, colours and textures of the clothing and Mulberry prints evoke the spirit of Englishness and nature with feathered friends, animal heads and rumpled roses all part of the playful spirit of English eccentricity.
For autumn winter 2011, the new season designs include a vintage inspired metallic evening gown that would be brilliant for 73Christmas parties or even worn as a winter bridal gown, beautifully tailored coats and suiting, witty knitwear and theres even a doggie head print sweatshirt for your pet pooch.
Mulberry continues to lead the trends in designer bags with styles that are contemporary and yet compliment everyones wardrobe, whether youre a super chic miss or a Boho chick.
For example the Lily Croc Nappa leather bag with its gorgeous long chain would look spiffy with a cocktail dress for evening or cool worn with jeans and a Tee.
Mulberry clothes and accessories are multitasking and really do work
as investment pieces, so a bag like the Polly Push lock is perfect to sling
across the body for a jaunt out in the country, or a superb work bag.
And guys, if youre looking for a gift to buy your beloved for Christmas (its never too early!) youll undoubtedly win brownie points shopping here. Even if you cant afford a beautiful Bayswater bag, the Spinningfields store has more affordable pieces such as jewellery, scarves and purses. Beautiful scotchgrain notebooks, buttery soft lambskin gloves and a stunning Mulberry Loves Peace belt.
