Fashion house Mulberry collaborated with designer Priya Ahluwalia for a limited edition capsule collection – Mulberry x Ahluwalia, presented with a short film titled Parts of Me directed by BAFTA nominated director Akinola Davies Jr. Ahluwalia reimagined the brand’s Portobello Tote and an assortment of scarves in her signature vibrant style. The collection celebrates Afro-Caribbean hair, and it’s symbolism of identity, protest and self-expression.
“The limited-edition capsule heroes the Portobello Tote, originally launched by Mulberry in 2019 as its first 100% sustainable leather bag. The Mulberry x Ahluwalia capsule is crafted in Mulberry’s carbon neutral Somerset Factories, using only repurposed fabrics and leathers that have been reworked for the capsule, meaning the bags are created in limited quantities. The collection consists of four oversized Portobello Totes, five Portobello Totes and three Mini Portobello Totes, a new size created especially for the collaboration. The bags are complemented by four 100% organic silk scarf designs, specially created in a 70×70 dimension so they can be worn as a bandana or headscarf.” – from Mulberry
