The Mulberry x Ahluwalia capsule collection is the latest in a series of limited-edition Mulberry Editions capsules that celebrate their 50th anniversary.
The collaboration with designer Priya Ahluwalia sees their signature Portobello Tote and an assortment of scarves reimagined in her signature vibrant aesthetic. The pieces of the collection are influenced by Priya’s mixed Nigerian-Indian heritage, in which hair holds such importance, and her fascination with hair as a means of identity, protest and expression. It celebrates the artistry, rituals and symbolism of Afro-Caribbean hair and Priya’s own personal narrative, which is brought to life through the capsule’s unique designs.
“I wanted to celebrate those familial bonds that happen through Black hair and how it really is craftsmanship that passes on. It is a celebration for me.” Priya Ahluwalia
Crafted entirely from surplus fabrics and leather, the Mulberry x Ahluwalia collection heroes the Portobello Tote silhouette, our first 100% sustainable leather bag, launched in 2019.
