The Somerset collection is the first bold step; an original range that conveys Mulberry's rugged authenticity and use of quality natural hides. The shapes are casual and classic but with signature Mulberry twists- a distinctive chunky tree embossed fob adorns all styles and the leather plaited zip pulls introduce a subtle air of the bohemian. Incredibly functional and surprisingly affordable; a lower price point at Mulberry could only be leather and coolly discreet- Somerset does this in all shapes and sizes. From the small shoulder bag, to the detailed tote and sportier satchel; there is a style and function to suit all- an exciting prospect that is here to stay.
The Smithfield is an innovative, charged, ultra cool shape offered in an array of sizes, leathers and colours for ultimate choice and versatility. The oversized vegetable tanned leather version with brass postman's lock and chunky tassel is a bold daytime statement. In shades of claret and emerald that hint to the season ahead, it bears all the hallmarks of a Mulberry coveted classic. The smaller edition in contrast takes on a sleek, nocturnal personality with the palest of gold clasps.
Experimentation with these different skins and hides pushes the fashion boundaries on styles that Mulberry does best. The polished goatskin collection brings new styles and rich shades for the uptown woman. Crafted from subtly textured leather in regal damson hues, there is a charming Abingdon handbag and a larger shoulder style Wilton with side buckle detail and glossy flip lock. Pure luxury with a fashion focused edge.
Men are not omitted from the injection of newness; early Autumn is home to a whole new leather. An ultra soft and supremely tactile robust heavy grain offers a great new option for the more refined male. Two satchels the Toby and Perry are crafted in recognisable tones of oak and chocolate with an original new leather and circular closure and leather strap. A lavish choice for summers end.
