Mulberry Announces A Series Of Contemporary Designer Collaborations As Part Of 50th Anniversary Celebrations

Mulberry bag 50th anniversary Nicolas Daley

Mulberry is continuing its 50th anniversary celebrations through a series of joyful collaborations with three of the most visionary designers of their generation ­– Priya Ahluwalia , Richard Malone and Nicholas Daley. Each designer will create a capsule collection as part of Mulberry Editions, a new offering of limited-edition accessories that will drop throughout 2021. 

Ahluwalia, Malone and Daley have each re-imagined an existing Mulberry silhouette, bringing their unique design ethos with the values Mulberry has always cherished ­– progressive British craftsmanship, made-to-last design, responsible innovation and community spirit. Their collections showcase the inspirational design that springs from a meeting of creativity and craft expertise. 

“I’m delighted that Mulberry is collaborating with three such talented designers, each with their own innovative design ethos and unique creative voice. It has been a pleasure to work with each of them, and to share Mulberry’s passion for innovation, craft and sustainability”. - Thierry Andretta, CEO, Mulberry.

Ahluwalia (collaboration launching June 2021)

Priya Ahluwalia launched her eponymous multi award winning label in 2018, after graduating from the MA Menswear course at The University of Westminster. The label combines elements from the designer’s dual Indian-Nigerian heritage and London roots, and explores the potential of vintage and surplus clothing by giving existing materials new life through textile techniques. Ahluwalia is informed by art, music, literature, and culture across the African and Asian diasporas to create an intersection between near and far, and past and present, making Ahluwalia both nostalgic and futuristic at the same time.

Richard Malone (collaboration launching September 2021)

London-based, Irish-born designer and multi-disciplinary artist Richard Malone, has become the fashion industry go-to for authenticity, resourcefulness and experimentation. Malone is stringently committed to sustainability, community, local production and the development of a less harmful fashion business model, releasing his collections in limited numbers.

Nicholas Daley (collaboration launching November 2021)
Nicholas Daley graduated from Central Saint Martins in 2013 and launched his eponymous label in 2015. Since the brand’s genesis, Daley has continually explored his dual-ethnic heritage, being of Jamaican and Scottish descent: he widely questions and reflects the notion of multiculturalism within the British identity. Placing great significance on craftsmanship with his production within the UK and Japan, Daley works with recognised artisans creating bespoke textiles and fabric finishes for every collection.
