Under The Sea With Mulberry
Since Spring ’11, photographer Tim Walker has fused his soft, surreal visions with Mulberry’s ultrafeminine designs to create ad campaigns that are, quite frankly, not of this world. For Spring ’13, the collaboration continues with a series of ads that depict an ethereal Meghan Collison (and, of course, the brand’s signature handbags) in a candy-colored underwater world. The campaign was, in fact, shot in a Georgian mansion outside of London, but leave it to Walker to transform his setting into an even more fanciful backdrop—one fit for a Georges Méliès film. “Meghan Collison was the perfect choice: strong, confident, able to hold your gaze but almost otherworldly,” says Walker. “She inhabits a dreamscape.” Above, Mulberry gives us a first look at their whimsical Spring campaign and, below, a preview of some behind-the-scenes images from the shoot, exclusive to Style.com.
