Mulberry’s Dinner

MULBERRY invited a select group of its friends including Eliza Doolittle, Anoushka Beckwith, Edie Campbell, Mary Charteris, Cara Delevingne, Clara Paget, Tallulah Ormsby Gore, Ben Grimes, Bonnie Wright and Tali Lennox for dinner at Morton’s in Mayfair last night to preview the spring/summer 2011 collection.

The dining room was made-over in line with Mulberry’s Grey Gardens-inspired range, with huge neon roses peeking in from outside the windows and goodie bags featuring lookbooks, vouchers for the soon-to-be-opened New Bond Street store and Kiehl’s products were waiting for guests on their chairs.

After the dinner of risotto, sea bass and poached pears, guests were invited downstairs to the Night Lounge for cocktails and dancing.


Mulberry’s Sale

MULBERRY’S sales rose 57 per cent across the label’s 40 UK stores over the past ten weeks compared to the same period last year. Like-for-like sales increased 79 per cent over its 90 worldwide stores.

“We’re seeing good organic growth in the markets where we’ve historically been strong,” says Mulberry ceo Godfrey Davis. “And we’re also seeing equally strong – if not stronger – growth in our newer international markets. We’re seeing very strong growth in Asia and our small business in the States is also growing strongly.”

According to the Financial Times, Mulberry predicts a doubling in growth of wholesale revenues. Wholesale order intake for autumn is expected to be 100 per cent above last year’s levels.
