The Animal Menagerie

Posted in People

In true Mulberry style, our new campaign celebrates a particularly English obsession – all creatures great and small! For Spring Summer 2014 Mulberry girl Cara Delevingne was joined by a veritable menagerie of animals on set, which made for a fun, energetic and in parts chaotic scene! Introducing the feathery and furry campaign cast…


Our canine stars are Ivor the Patterdale Terrier, Ged the Parson’s Jack Russell, Fraser the Harlequin Great Dane and William the Fawn Great Dane. All were impeccably behaved around Cara, and burned off some energy in the grounds outside beautiful Shotover House between takes. One of Cara’s favourite new friends was Spud the Moluccan Cockatoo who spent most of the shoot perched regally on her shoulder! Archie the Umbrella Cockatoo and Percy the Great White Pelican completed a feathery trio.

Holly the Hedgehog came over all shy and didn’t make the final cut, and a very mischievous monkey was sent home for bad behaviour. But Pukka the Horsefield Tortoise was a calming influence on all, exploring the table for morsels to eat. Finally Dusty, a small but very greedy Welsh Section A pony had enormous fun posing next to one of England’s biggest modelling stars.

Cara Delevingne was in her element, posing with, as art director Ronnie Cooke Newhouse called it, her ‘ark of animals’. “They didn’t have the best table manners” Ronnie reported back, “but Cara was
very forgiving.”
