Cara Delevingne returns to Mulberry for a second time, hosting a typically eccentric English tea party for the Spring-Summer 2014 campaign. However, the lucky few guests to be invited to tea at Shotover House in Oxfordshire (also the location for last season’s shoot) were a menagerie of adorable animals.
Animal-lover Cara is joined by a Parson’s Jack Russell, a Patterdale Terrier and a Great Dane, a pelican, two cockatoos, a tortoise and little white pony. Apparently, a mischievous monkey was sent home from the set for being too boisterous.
The fresh, whimsical campaign is yet another triumph for the Mulberry dream team – photographer Tim Walker, art director Ronnie Cooke Newhouse and stylist Edward Enninful.
English rose Cara wears key looks from the Spring-Summer 2014 collection featuring seasonal prints, floral jacquard, delicate embroidery and embellishment. New bags for the season include the Kensal shoulder bag, Baywater with stripes, Lily and the Bayswater Double Zip Tote reworked in classic Oak.
Ronnie Cooke Newhouse said: “The Spring Summer 2014 campaign was a beautiful but naughty tea party with Cara and her Ark of animals: the perfect Mulberry moment. They didn’t have the best table manners, but Cara was very forgiving”.
Brand director Anne-Marie Verdin said: “Tim Walker’s vision gives a romantic, literary and very British feel to the Mulberry brand and Cara has more spirit, true beauty and warmth than you could ever hope for: charisma with a capital C!”
