We do love an exclusive here at Grazia Daily and thanks to our friends over at Mulberry HQ we can reveal their latest Cara collab. You won't be surprised to hear that Ms Mulberry, Cara Delevingne, is back for another season in their Autumn Winter 2014 campaign. This time the model went on a Scottish fling in the Highlands, working knits n' knee highs as she skipped through the heather.
The ad really couldn't be more Mulberry. Tim Walker as photographer? Tick! Bayswaters and brogues? Yes sir. Animals? You betcha! This collection is inspired by traditional British tailoring, with Cara wearing chunky arran knits and all-purpose rain boots.
As for the bags Cara carries the new Tessie and the Bayswater Buckle. Of course the Cara Delevingne collection also makes a cameo, with Cara modelling the quilted black and the camo print backpacks.
Her ads are usually a Mulberry menagerie with tortoises, ponies, owls and cockatoos joining her on set. She poses with some furry friends once again, with several dogs running in the background of the shots. Word is Cara fell for a little lamb (its fleece as white as snow) while at her Scottish lodge.
Forget Laduree and bottles of Veuve, the team stayed at a lodge where they went on Land Rover rides and munched on homemade shortbread. There was no phone signal on location so we've been told they made friends with gamekeepers’ dogs and a flock of sheep.
She may have grown up in London, but Cara has a soft spot for the English countryside as she went to school out of town. Cara explains in a Mulberry video: "I love the countryside. I went to school in the country and there was nothing like it - baking bread, rearing sheep, building fences, running around the forest." Not your average comp then, eh.
Cara D previously said to Grazia Daily about working with the label: "Mulberry is such an iconic brand - it’s British, and I love the bags and clothes. Plus the campaigns are inspiring - they have a tradition of working with such cool models and creative teams."
Anne-Marie Verdin, Brand Director at Mulberry, said about the ad: ‘The thing I most like about our new Mulberry campaign is the sheer Mulberry of it! Big space, fresh air, wind in the hair, away from it all…Mulberry is a brand that is at home in town and country and we wanted to capture that feeling. When we arrived in Scotland it was pouring with rain, but once Tim arrived this golden sun appeared – he really has the magic touch!’
