If you thought that Mulberry wasn’t iconic and “It” enough, the brand just opened its new store in New York City’s SoHo neighborhood: its third in the city, but its largest. The whole array of designs from the collection are sold there including handbags, footwear, luggage, other accessories and ready to wear.
One of the coolest parts about the boutique and one of my favorite attributes are the 8000 hardcover books that are housed. They serve as decoration and ode to the building’s former use as a printer and bookstore, as well as a fashionable purpose, creating an area where the pretty Mulberry shoe collection can sit.
Naturally, the brand will be kicking off its opening with a huge party during New York Fashion Week which is already underway.
Next month when the chaos of Fashion Weeks all around the globe are over, many of us in the fashion industry are going to treat ourselves to something amazing. Mulberry has its fair share of glamorous pieces and the above two are my favorite. The Heritage Bayswater Satchel in Conker High Pebbled Matte ($1500) is just the pop of color you need for Fall, in a rich autumnal hue. You can never go wrong with a showstopping dress because you can dress it up and dress it down. The Flower Grid Dress ($4500) will look perfect now, with black tights and booties for cold temperatures and with flat over the knee boots and a fur coat for Winter.
Mulberry’s new SoHo boutique is located at 134 Spring Street. Visit www.mulberry.com for more information and see the inside of the boutique below.
