Mulberry celebrates 40 years of quintessential British style

May 15, 2011

Back 1971, the first British lifestyle brand, Mulberry, put down its roots in the humble Somerset countryside.

40 years later, Mulberry has been crowned Designer Brand of the Year, boasts some of the world’s best dressed as dedicated fans and has just moved its HQ to a swanky Kensington postcode. In spite of this worldwide success, the brand’s dedication to quintessential anglo style is still going strong, and the label remains one of the last luxury brands in the country to keep a British factory.

One of the things I’ve always found so hypnotic about Mulberry is the seamless combination of traditional British country style with chic citywear.

Flicking through some of my favourite Mulberry moments from recent years, I can’t help but tip a teacup to one of British fashion’s greatest success stories.
