Mulberry, with its heritage rooted in English leather craftsmanship, found its spot on the world map by producing stylish women's handbags of great quality. In recent years, the brand also adopted a more current front, aligning itself with movers and shakers in the industry by naming a satchel after It-girl Alexa Chung and releasing collaborations with model Cara Delevingne.
Officially announced on the 8th of July, the brand welcomes a new chapter with the appointment of Johnny Coca as its creative director. Coca started out in the industry with the LVMH group and enjoyed a lengthy tenure at Céline before teaching at Central Saint Martins for the past three years.
Mulberry CEO Thierry Andretta said: "It is such a pleasure to welcome one of the most talented designers in the industry to Mulberry and it will be exciting to watch the brand develop under Johnny's creative leadership."
