Take flight with Mulberry's new Kite tote
Fly Uncle Coca's Kite
As former design director at Céline, Spanish native Johnny Coca was responsible for some of the brand's most covetable accessories like the Trapeze bag. Until Coca's first day at the office mid last year, the beleaguered English leather goods brand had remained without a creative director since Emma Hill's departure in 2013. Despite 90 percent of Mulberry's sales coming from leather goods (Coca's expertise), the Seville-born designer will lead a full-fledged charge on all creative aspects of the brand's image, including footwear and its ready-to-wear collections. But as a brief preview (and a sign of great things to come), Coca's first injection into Mulberry's stable of bags is all things minimal and masterful. We are obsessed with the Kite tote, particularly in its largest iteration. Clean, simple, effective and extremely versatile, we're certain that Coca's reinvention will be the wings that take Mulberry to brand new heights.
