Mulberry-Paul Smith Collaboration: A British Style Fusion Now in Stores
Mulberry has been making headlines with a series of major brand collaborations, and one highly anticipated partnership with fellow British fashion powerhouse Paul Smith has finally made its way to retail shelves.
Mulberry x Paul Smith: A Stylish Fusion
Unveiled during Paul Smith’s AW23 men’s show in Paris earlier this year, this exclusive 10-piece capsule collection draws inspiration from Mulberry’s iconic Antony bag. In addition to offering three sizes of the classic Antony design, this collaboration introduces two exclusive silhouettes: the Antony Clip, a compact crossbody bag, and the Antony Tote.
Originally conceived as a men’s everyday bag, the Antony has evolved into a unisex icon, thanks to its signature Postman’s Lock hardware. Now, it undergoes a creative transformation that blends the distinctive styles of both Mulberry and Paul Smith.
Two Unique Material Stories
This capsule collection weaves two compelling material narratives, paying homage to Paul Smith’s historical use of stripes while staying true to Mulberry’s timeless heritage.
- Classic Black Heavy Grain Leather: This timeless choice features striped webbing straps and a vibrant pop-color lining, elevating everyday elegance with a touch of sophistication.
- Smooth Calf’s Leather with Color-Blocking: This option embraces a bold color-blocking theme, showcasing Paul Smith’s recently introduced Shadow Stripe motif through innovative leather embossing techniques.
Sustainability at the Core
Sustainability takes center stage in this collaboration. Both Mulberry and Paul Smith are committed to eco-friendly practices, and this partnership follows suit. Every piece in this collection is proudly handcrafted in the UK, specifically at Mulberry’s carbon-neutral Somerset factories, where over half of the brand’s collections are produced. The leather used is not only of premium quality but also carbon-neutral, boasting the highest Gold standard certification from the Leather Working Group for environmental performance.
