#23NewsBulletin – Mulberry has revealed the latest iteration of its Mulberry Editions designer collaboration series, which features emerging London-based designer Nicholas Daley, who has designed a capsule of bags as well as music-inspired accessories. Daley, who is known for exploring his dual Jamaican and Scottish heritage and music, has reinterpreted Mulberry’s classic unisex ‘Antony’ satchel for the collaboration, as well as introducing Mulberry’s first foray into music accessories, including a guitar strap, a saxophone strap, and a plectrum case. Daley has evoked the era-defining sonic movements of the 1960s and 1970s, the heydays of jazz, reggae, and rock’n’roll for the capsule collection, updating the ‘Antony’ with a whipstitch, fringe, and braided motifs in a nod to the outfits and accessories worn on stage by Miles Davis, Roy Ayers, and Jimi Hendrix. The bags are available in five different sizes, including a new oversized version, and Daley has also updated Mulberry’s signature hardware, flipping its Postman’s Lock, so the twist goes north to south and framing it with fine embroidery. To echo the rich textural plays of Daley’s ready-to-wear collections, the capsule's tonal palette includes navy, ochre, and oak, with contrasting panels of suede, grained leather, and cotton canvas. Commenting on the collection, Daley said in a statement: “This range has been created with the musicians I’ve worked within the mind - almost like an accessories wardrobe for them to wear on stage. “Collaborating with Mulberry has been such a privilege. I’ve always felt a strong sense of alignment with the brand’s support of British craftsmanship, as well as its stance on sustainability. The team were so open and supportive in bringing new ideas to life, I’m excited for people to resonate with the pieces, and love and wear them for years to come.” Daley and Mulberry have produced a film to mark the launch showcasing the bags in a live jazz session, with a specially written composition by Sons of Kemet frontman Shabaka Hutchings, accompanied by Grammy-nominated recording artist Lianne La Havas. The film also features other artists within Daley’s “creative community” including Daisy George, Jasmine Kayser, and Shirley Tettah, and a horn section featuring Grifton Forbes-Amos, Elijah Clarke, and David Laleye-Thomas. #23News
