Johnny Coca joins the English brand known for their leather bags and accessories

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."
