Luxury label Mulberry is finally taking things to the next level – Fall/Winter 2008 Mulberry Shoes Collection!
Jonathan Kelsey, London’s top shoes designer (who learned his craft chez Jimmy Choo) has imagined and realized a five-piece collection of riding boots and pumps. Jonathan is the cousin of Stuart Vevers, the former creative director from Mulberry who was honored with the title “Accessory Designer of the Year” in 2006 at the British Fashion Awards, the Oscars of Fashion Industry.
The collection is scheduled for presentation at the London Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2008/2009, February the 14th. Happy Mulberry Shoes-Day, everyone!
Footwear has always been part of our business plan,” says Mulberry’s chief operating officer, Lisa Montague. “We loved Jonathan’s autumn/winter 2007-8 collection and thought his energy and design ethos he would be an excellent fit for our brand. We are currently committed to autumn/winter 2008-9 and spring/summer 2009 and if this goes well, we’d like to further develop footwear in the future.
PS – the first Mulberry Shoes Collection goes officially on sale in September!
