Mulberry’s recent collections have taken inspiration from a wide range of sources, from Alexa Chung to faded glamour to Valley Of The Dolls. For fall, Mulberry is extending its inspirational reach to the Royal Family – its latest line, the Margaret Collection, is inspired by the late Princess Margaret, long-known as one of Britain’s racier royals.
The Margaret Collection consists of three handbag styles: the Margaret Shoulder Bag; the Margaret Mini-Bag, a mini messenger-style bag; and, the Margaret Clutch, a slouchy, fold-over clutch. Each piece in the Margaret Collection is built on a classic silhouette and then given a “cheeky twist” that pays tribute to Princess Margaret’s sassy side. The twist? A sculptured logo plaque that features Mulberry’s own “We Believe In Tea & Cake” crest, a coat of arms consisting of English Bulldogs, teapots and cupcakes. The handbags are available in three fabric/color combinations: soft leather, in black or plum; grape suede; or drizzle grey ostrich leather.
The collection also extends into ready-to-wear. The Margaret Dress is a neon “Loopy Leopard” print dress with shoulder epaulets and a draped back.
The Margaret Collection is available now in Mulberry stores and online at Mulberry.com.
