Marvellous Mulberry: Discover the iconic British brand

The beauty of the Mulberry brand is deeply rooted in British culture and its’ affordability as a luxury brand.

Mar 31, 2022

The Mulberry brand is synonymous with British lifestyle.

Mulberry has long since been the British brand of choice, adored by Royals like the Duchess of Cambridge and many celebs, some of whom have collaborated with the brand. These include Alexa Chung, Cara Delevigne and Lana Del Ray who catapulted the brand into the mainstream, as part of the vision of then Creative Director, Emma Hill. Another reason why Mulberry is the go-to luxury brand is its’ price point and humble beginnings. The brand began when Roger Saul’s mother gave him £500 to launch his brand making belts and chokers, of which he worked alongside his sister to create the brand name and logo, inspired by the Mulberry trees the pair would see on their walk to school. The Mulberry brand is quintessentially British and has stayed true to the idea of creating pieces that are made to last.

The Alexa

The Mulberry Alexa launched in 2010, inspired by and dedicated to British model, Alexa Chung. The partnership was extremely successful, despite the global recession and the Alexa bag quickly became one of the most sought after items internationally. Most recently coming out of the global pandemic, Alexa Chung collaborated with Mulberry once more as part of the brand’s 50th anniversary celebrations designing a collection which features a deep shoulder bag, named the ‘Big Guy’ and a nifty clutch, ‘Little Guy’. Each of which of course, feature the signature Postman’s lock. The collaboration is only set to be as successful as the previous one.
