While rumors around the chair of the creative director of Mulberry plant one contender after another on it, as if on an empty throne, everything that the press service of the brand is ready to say to journalists is yet another: "No comment." Their spring-summer collection for the year 2015, released without a single art guide, did not appear on the catwalk, but was greeted by the public very warmly. And what you can’t say for sure about it is that it includes weak, mediocre or too different styles of things. Least of all, perhaps, Mulberry look confused and lost.
Perhaps inspired by their example, CamillAl Fayed this year took the risk of entrusting the leadership of Iss to the design team, not inviting anyone to replace the retired Blue Farrier. The latter, by the way, is listed among the contenders for the post in Mulberry on an equal footing with Hannah MacGibbon. In a way, they are even companions: both worked and became famous thanks to Chloe, whose feminine simplicity is very impressed by many British brands. But if rumors are to be believed, Mulberry's true favorite should be sought among Celine's daredevils and utilitarians, Johnny Coca, who heads the leather goods, haberdashery, shoe and jewelry shops there, some already see at the head of the brand.
However, Mulberry themselves remain silent. Since the departure of EmmHill in 2013, they have had the hopes and dreams of many fashion artists working for brands such as Erdem and VictoriBackham, but they have all been left with nothing. The time has not come yet, Mulberry believes, as soon as the choice is made, it will become known, but for now they do not want to reassure anyone.
