Introduced by creative director Johnny Coca at the Autumn Winter ’17 London Fashion Week show, the Amberley family was born out of a modern exploration of Mulberry’s heritage and classic British style, where reinvention comes from tradition.
Named after Amberley Castle, an English country seat in west Sussex dating back to the 12th century, the Amberley shape draws influence from leather goods associated with countryside pursuits to create a new family of quintessentially British accessories.
This new range features equestrian-tinged stitching, quilting details, raw-edged construction, and fine saddlery leathers. It is adorned with the new signature hardware, the Rider’s Lock, reminiscent of the metal on horse bits and bridles. The Amberley family is both beautiful and utilitarian, a fundamentally British mix.
Practicality and fashion go hand in hand. The Amberley collection is available in five different silhouettes – the Amberley, Amberley Satchel, Small Amberley Satchel, Mini Amberley Satchel, and the Amberley Hobo.Echoing the colours of the Autumn Winter Ready-to-Wear collection, the range is offered in a vibrant palette of colours including Rust, Elephant Blue and Dark Amethyst, as well as the core shades of Oak, Oxblood, Clay and Black. In addition to Mulberry’s natural leathers, graphic snakeskin and croc print leathers complement the clean lines of the Amberley.
Exemplifying Mulberry’s philosophy of creating accessories that are beautifully made, and made to last, the Amberley collection is a classic that can be handed down through the generations. Like all Mulberry pieces, the Amberley is an heirloom for tomorrow.
