Mulberry bag 50th anniversary Nicolas Daley

Mulberry is continuing its 50th anniversary celebrations through a series of joyful collaborations with three of the most visionary designers of their generation ­– Priya Ahluwalia , Richard Malone and Nicholas Daley. Each designer will create a capsule collection as part of Mulberry Editions, a new offering of limited-edition accessories that will drop throughout 2021. 

Ahluwalia, Malone and Daley have each re-imagined an existing Mulberry silhouette, bringing their unique design ethos with the values Mulberry has always cherished ­– progressive British craftsmanship, made-to-last design, responsible innovation and community spirit. Their collections showcase the inspirational design that springs from a meeting of creativity and craft expertise. 

“I’m delighted that Mulberry is collaborating with three such talented designers, each with their own innovative design ethos and unique creative voice. It has been a pleasure to work with each of them, and to share Mulberry’s passion for innovation, craft and sustainability”. - Thierry Andretta, CEO, Mulberry.

Ahluwalia (collaboration launching June 2021)

Priya Ahluwalia launched her eponymous multi award winning label in 2018, after graduating from the MA Menswear course at The University of Westminster. The label combines elements from the designer’s dual Indian-Nigerian heritage and London roots, and explores the potential of vintage and surplus clothing by giving existing materials new life through textile techniques. Ahluwalia is informed by art, music, literature, and culture across the African and Asian diasporas to create an intersection between near and far, and past and present, making Ahluwalia both nostalgic and futuristic at the same time.

Richard Malone (collaboration launching September 2021)

London-based, Irish-born designer and multi-disciplinary artist Richard Malone, has become the fashion industry go-to for authenticity, resourcefulness and experimentation. Malone is stringently committed to sustainability, community, local production and the development of a less harmful fashion business model, releasing his collections in limited numbers.

Nicholas Daley (collaboration launching November 2021)
Nicholas Daley graduated from Central Saint Martins in 2013 and launched his eponymous label in 2015. Since the brand’s genesis, Daley has continually explored his dual-ethnic heritage, being of Jamaican and Scottish descent: he widely questions and reflects the notion of multiculturalism within the British identity. Placing great significance on craftsmanship with his production within the UK and Japan, Daley works with recognised artisans creating bespoke textiles and fabric finishes for every collection.

#MulberryxAhluwalia, #MulberryxRichardMalone, #MulberryxNicholasDaley

TheChicGeek says, "Mulberry has picked three of the best young British designers to team up with and it will be exciting to see the spins they put on the classic Mulberry silhouettes dropping throughout the year."

Jo Malone London Marmalade Fragrance CollectionInspired by the shape and detailing seen on vintage marmalade jars. Jo Malone London celebrates all the fun of the fete with a new collection, The Marmalade Collection. Five scents; Tangy Rhubarb, Rose Blush, Orange Peel, Elderflower and Blackberry & Bay are included in the new 30ml cologne range.

Natural fruit extracts were created specially for The Marmalade Collection by one of the UK’s leading soft fruit processors in Blairgowrie, Scotland. Usually used in the food industry, fruits and berries from local growers are steam distilled into draughts that are added directly to the fragrance. These extracts help to capture the true vibrancy of tart rhubarb and juicy blackberry. 

Jo Malone London Marmalade Fragrance CollectionCeline Roux, Global Head of Fragrance says, “Over 10 years ago, we launched the Sugar & Spice collection, which was inspired by beloved British puddings. This worked really well, and I started thinking about fragrances themed around jams and, in particular, marmalade. Using seasonal fruits to create homemade preserves that you can gift to family and friends seems like such a quintessentially British pastime, conjuring up images of English breakfasts, high teas and village fêtes.”

Jo Malone London Marmalade Fragrance CollectionTheChicGeek says, “This looks like Jo Malone’s attempt to woo the Gen Z customer; smaller sizes, cheaper price points, Helvetica-like hipster packaging and sweet shop type fragrances. The imagery is a mix of Gucci and soft-focus Sofia Coppola. This feels like a completely different customer for them, though some of their fragrances have always had a mix of sweet and gourmandy in there. I haven't tried these to recommend any."

Quiksilver The Original Boardshort swimwear surfQuiksilver is celebrating its most iconic range of boardshorts by bringing back the most loved and iconic design from the early days of the brand, The Original. This bold boardshort set, originally famed for its iconic checkered side panel, will be available from this month and will never go out of stock.

Born in 1969, The Original was the first boardshort to blend style with performance to create something that represented the raw, progressive energy of surfing.

Last year, Quiksilver announced that 100% of the brand’s boardshort range is now made from recycled water bottles. Quiksilver has focused on using recycled water bottles since the breakthrough of this fabric technology and to date has reused over 250 million bottles that would otherwise have gone into landfill. As well as recycled fabrics, the shorts are built with technology to service the needs of surfers, and the everyday wearer at the beach or pool.

New for this year, Quiksilver’s boardshorts will also feature the new 'Surf Silk' and 'Highlite' fabric for comfort, durability and performance which use 100% recycled nylon from fishing buoys.

The Original boardshorts are available as a boardshort and a volley short, and priced from £45-£60

#Iconicforareason 

TheChicGeek says, "While the fashion in men's swimwear has been getting smaller and smaller, the boardshort could be ripe for a comeback. Just be careful if you're short..."

Clients will be able to step into ‘The ADAM Atelier at Harrods’ and indulge in the artful hands and discerning eye of their house barbers.

ADAM Grooming Atelier brings old-world craftsmanship and grooming rituals and updates them for the modern world. At ADAM, there is a lean into the history and mastery of the Turkish barber.

Alongside wet shaves and classic cuts, this exclusive treatment menu will also include facials, threading and blow dries. Adam only use the finest ingredients and unique blends of essential oils that restore, soothe and rejuvenate.
