Mulberry F/W 2012 Ad Campaign


A Forest fairytale, Mulberry launches its F/W 2012 campaign, shot by renowned British photographer Tim Walker in an English forest, with beautiful, evocative images that play on the romance and darkness of children’s fairytales.


The campaign features two giant furry, forest creatures and the gorgeous Lindsey Wixson, in her third campaign for the English luxury brand. Wearing key looks from the F/W 2012 collection, silhouettes are luxuriously layered, textures rich and contrasting and the pieces accessorised with Mulberry’s latest bag icons Del Rey, Maisie and the new embellished Alexa; Zig Zag Bag.


The campaign was inspired by Creative Director Emma Hill’s visions of explorers, dark fairytales and fantasy travels. I find the campaign absolutely awesome. Tim Walker is the best photographer to play with the idea of fairytales. He comes up with the right mix of darkness and romance.


A forest fairytale brought to life. As Tim said: “Ever since I was a little boy, I always hoped to see a monster in the woods. Now, we all get to.” I am on my way to Yosemite National Park, I hope that I won’t see one.

LoL, Sandra

Art Frieze

Frieze Art Fair is renowned for cutting edge art and a fashion-forward crowd. Established in London in 2003 by the infinitely stylish Matthew Slotover and his co-director Amanda Sharp, it has become one of the art world’s hottest tickets.

This month, London’s coolest art fair hits Manhattan for the first time with the launch of Frieze New York. The four-day event (May 4-7) will see over 1000 of the world’s leading artists gather alongside curators, gallerists and collectors all set against a cool waterside backdrop and with a hip lineup of pop-up restaurants, parties and people to spot. And fashion trendsetters such as Net-à-porter and Mulberry join forces with the art world:
