Emma Hill to Depart Mulberry

-------

Emma Hill takes a bow after Mulberry's Fall '13 showEmma Hill, the British designer responsible for the ever-popular Alexa bag, will be parting ways with Mulberry. According to WWD, Hill, who had served as the label’s creative director since 2008, reportedly made the break because of creative and operational differences with management. Having formerly designed handbags for the likes of Marc Jacobs and Calvin Klein, Hill did a great deal to build up the Mulberry label, focusing on accessories, English heritage, and clothes that catered to a sophisticated brand of whimsy. (And, of course, who could forget those little dogs she’s become so fond of using in her runway shows?) Due to the fact that her departure comes while Coach is on the prowl for Reed Krakoff’s replacement, the rumor mill suggests that Hill might be up for the job—there’s also speculation that the likes of Clare Waight Keller, 2013 CFDA Accessories Designer of the Year Phillip Lim, and the already very busy Marc Jacobs, among others, are being considered for the position. Hill’s official Mulberry end date is still undetermined, but she has already wrapped up the Spring ’14 collection, which will show in London on September 15.

Mulberry’s English Garden Sprouts in L.A.

-------

Taking the dense florals and dizzying gardens from her Fall collection on the road, Mulberry’s Emma Hill and gang made their requisite trip to the Chateau Marmont last night to celebrate with the left-coast set. In addition to bona fide L.A. girls like Mena Suvari, Marisa Tomei, and Liz Goldwyn, there were plenty of Brits in attendance, including Alice Eve and Revenge‘s Ashley Madekwe. And the table talk revolved around all things Anglo. “Aren’t Americans secretly really kind of Anglophiles a little bit?” Brit Marling asked. “We’re all just longing for the mother country,” mused the star of The East before discussing directors with Emily Mortimer, who’s in the middle of filming the second season of The Newsroom. Looking demure in the label’s emerald School shirt, Mortimer offered that she likes to do her shopping on the fly—literally. “I can’t really walk past the Mulberry shop at terminal three at Heathrow without going crazy.”

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.
