Mulberry launches Tessie, a more affordable (ish), equestrian-inspired line



See Mulberry’s Tessie collection here »

In the first step toward more affordable accessories, British fashion house, Mulberry has launched a lower priced handbag line inspired by equestrian saddlery.

The Tessie collection features a hobo, clutch, tote and satchel which feature soft leather detailing in either oxblood, poppy, oak or black with belt buckles and straps. Most importantly, the Tessie collection will range between $860 and $1,190, a marked difference from the brand’s typical pricing, which usually begins around $1,300 for the same size.

This new line comes after a rather difficult time for Mulberry, which issued two recent profit warnings and reported falling share prices, on top of its loss of its former CEO, Bruno Guillion. Not to mention, the brand’s notable no-show at February’s London Fashion Week after Emma Hill, the brand’s former creative director left the company.

We can credit the genius of Phoebe Philo for bringing back the Birkenstock out of grandpa’s closet and onto our must-have shopping lists for spring. Céline’s fuzzy, fur-lined sandal kicked off the third coming of the comfort shoe legend last year. After a year in the spotlight, Birkenstocks have returned for a second year with practically every hip label, from Givenchy to Zara, has some sort of a version just waiting to make you look orthopedic.

When it was introduced to North America in 1973, Birkenstock’s two-strap “Arizona” men’s sandal was the antithesis of the decade’s bare chested machismo ideal. It didn’t take long to be adopted with outdoorsy types, becoming a go-to for camping and campus-ing alike.

Its launch, however, didn’t inspire the fashion crowd until the now-infamous 1990 The Face editorial, featuring teenage Kate Moss, shot by the late Corrine Day, wearing rolled up jeans with white Birkenstocks, and not much else.

Fall 2014 Trends

Your first time at any international fashion week will teach you a valuable lesson: You need a fur. And not just any Margot Tenenbaum style granny hand-me-down. A fur so intricately patterned, multi-layered and artificially coloured, that it has to be designer. Given its place at the apex of the top Fall 2014 trends, you’d think recessionary times were long gone—it’s virtually everywhere, from a hyper colour mink at Altuzarra to a fluffy red dress at Prada. Wear it with caution or as Dior prescribes, dangle it over your arm like it’s no big d. Let the fur fly, scruples or otherwise.
