SS14 Campaign: Mulberry’s Animal Tea Party

SS14 Mulberry Cara 4 SS14 Campaign: Mulberrys Animal Tea Party %tag

Once again Mulberry has put together a whimsical English rose setting for its spring/summer 2014 ad campaign starring a very girlie looking Cara Delevingne in an animal tea-party themed shoot.

Not only is the concept cute, the styling of Cara by Edward Enninful is the most demure I have ever seen her look, she looks every inch the archetypal English rose – however I do think the animals are grabbing most of the attention!!!

I do love a charming English tea party, but I think I adore Mulberry’s take even more, with a white pony, a Jack Russell, a Patterdale Terrier, a Great Dane, a pelican and two cockatoos, apparently called Archie and Spud taking centre stage – it just shows that even for a model like Cara it is hard to compete with gorgeous animals – especially the pony, Dusty isn’t she just a darling.

I really do think that Tim Walker and Mulberry is a match made in heaven – I love this cute and quirky ad campaign.

Are you a fan of Cara’s new Mulberry campaign?

LFW Preview: Designer’s Share Their SS14 Inspiration

mulberry tea cup  LFW Preview: Designers Share Their SS14 Inspiration %tagFashion month has started, New York Fashion Week is in full swing and London Fashion Week is less than a week away, and I am getting pretty excited to see what the London-based designers have in store for us for spring/summer 2014.

Well, it seems that it isn’t only me getting excited about the SS14 collections, as LFW designers have been sharing their inspiration and work-in-progress via their social media channels as they start the countdown to their shows.

It is nice to see so many designers embracing social media ahead of the shows – and the sneak peaks feature everything from miniature tea cups to graphic prints and floral blooms – I have a feeling it is going to be a bright season.

Scroll through the SS14 preview gallery below and let me know who’s collection you are excited to see.

Exhibition: Tim Walker – Story Teller

tim walker story teller Exhibition: Tim Walker   Story Teller %tag
This week I finally got chance to visit Tim Walker’s incredible exhibition at Somerset House. I am not sure what took me so long, but after I couldn’t make the press preview I kind of just kept forgetting but with the exhibition coming to an end this weekend I just couldn’t let it end without looking around.

Tim Walker, famous for his incredible Mulberry campaigns, is much more than just a photographer, this creative-but-tiny exhibit really shows off the lengths he goes to in his shoots with the use of gorgeous and generally oversized props. Everything from giant bugs, skeletons, musical instruments, planes, crumpled up newspaper and my favourite the giant rag doll, which is kind of creepy-but-adorable.

The exhibition closes tomorrow, so if like me you kept forgetting, and thought you had loads of time – you don’t and for a free exhibition I would certainly recommend checking out if you are in the Somerset House area this weekend.

Christmas Windows: A Trip Down London’s Bond Street

Cartier christmas Christmas Windows: A Trip Down Londons Bond Street %tag

I love Christmas and one of my favourite activities is to wander around London and check out all the amazing window displays. I love how retailers always step up their creativity and this year is no exception. I will be bringing you the wonders of the department stores such as SelfridgesLiberty London and Harrods, but first I wanted to take you on a trip down London’s Bond Street and bring you my favourite festive displays from the likes of Mulberry, Ralph Lauren, Tiffany’s, and Cartier who have literally wrapped up their store.

Tiffany & Co:

Basically this is a look inside the perfect Tiffany & Co town house - starting with the Tiffany blue door to the striking chandelier, and the grand entrance. I think Barbie would definitely approve!!!

Next up is a white Christmas courtesy of Ralph Lauren, who have dressed their windows in a dramatic winter wonderland full of glamour – and while taking the pictures I was even treated to a choir singing Christmas carols – very festive.

Mulberry has gone all gold, scattering its windows with oversized padlocks, keys and Christmas cards to place inside the Mulberry postbox.

One of the highlights of my Bond Street wander had to be the Fenwick windows, which were dark, sparkly and very different – I loved the Gothic edge and how the clothes and accessories reflected in the wall covered baubles.

Toronto Film Festival: Anna Kendrick Looks Edgy In Mulberry

AnnaMulberry Toronto Film Festival: Anna Kendrick Looks Edgy In Mulberry %tag

Who: Twilight and Up In The Air actress Anna Kendrick

Where: At the premiere for her new flick The Company You Keep, which took place during the Toronto Film Festival

Wearing: Mulberry’s moonlight tie dye silk ‘Fitted Nightie Dress’ from the autumn/winter 2012 collection, teamed with Brian Atwood strappy heels and a bronze clutch

Verdict: There is something about Anna Kendrick, she can look a little uncomfortable in dresses that are too sexy, she sometimes doesn’t quite pull off high-fashion looks, but I am loving that she has chosen this edgy look as she really pulls it off.

This printed ‘Nightie’ dress is incredible, I love the contoured style of the dress it really suits her tiny frame, but it is the ethereal print featuring tie-dye shades of midnight blue, orange and black that makes this dress divine for me. It is a little different for a red carpet look and that is why it stands out. This is a really great look from Anna.

Buy Her Style: Fancy buying Anna’s silk dress? Well you can pick it up now from Mulberry for £2,500 – bargain right!!!

What do you think of Anna’s edgier look?

AW12 Campaign: The Mulberry Forest Fairytale

AW12Mulberry4 AW12 Campaign: The Mulberry Forest Fairytale %tag

There is always something magical about Mulberry’s vision, whether it is for a celeb-studded party, a catwalk show, or a retail window display, the British brand under the helm of Emma Hill seems to just push the limit every season. For autumn/winter 2012, it seems that the Mulberry has captured the magic of the collection, which was inspired by the fantastical ‘Where the Wild Things Are’ perfectly with the help of its two giant furry beasts with claws to appear alongside model Lindsey Wixson.

Shot by Tim Walker in Blackheath Forest in Surrey, which I so need to visit doesn’t it look magical, I love that it has a Brother’s Grim meets Big Foot vibe about it that works perfectly against the gorgeous tailored, layered and textured collection. The lace and the tweed seriously pops against the trees and the claws.

All the shots are incredible, as are the bags I love them all from the Del Rey in Ostrich in the top shot to the  gorgeous embellished Alexa bag *second to last* and the divine new tweed Lily Shoulder with Chain Handle in the final image.

But  my favourite shot has to be Lindsay in orange or should I say flame as Mulberry have called it, she looks insane in that lace top and flared skirt, plus her arm candy is the new Maisie, I have to admit I did swoon slightly at the sight of this bag so wish I could add this to my collection of bags!!!

One thing I have to ask though – does the forest fairytale top the seaside shoot from spring/summer 2012?

The Mulberry Crown At Harrods

Day136 The Mulberry Crown At Harrods %tag

Today was an early start all about ballgowns and crowns at Harrods and the V&A and it was amazing. First stop was Harrods where they’ve transformed the store into a very patriotic scene to celebrate the Queen’s diamond jubilee, think lots of Union Jack flags, and windows filled with crowns.

Everyone from De Beers and Tiffany & Co, to Paul Smith and Prada and even beauty brand’s Shu Uemura and Jo Malone have designed a special crown just for Harrods and they are all on display in the store’s windows.

It isn’t the best shot, the traffic is crazy so always reflects on the glass, but I just had to share this amazing crown covered in ‘hundreds and thousands’ candy pieces designed by Mulberry. As soon as I saw it I was in awe, don’t get me wrong I love the jewels of the traditional designed crowns, but come on this is fun and  different and I am loving the addition of the cushion designed like a classic English Victoria sponge cake for it to sit on.

The Harrods Brompton Road windows filled with crowns and ballgowns will be on display until June 15 so get down and check out them out.
