Mulberry’s new campaign for its upcoming collection introduces us to Delevingne’s new furry pals who nearly steal the spotlight in the model’s second campaign for the fashion house. Whimsical photographer Tim Walker has created a quirky and romantic take on a classic theme – a typically English tea party set in an 18th-century country mansion.
The British model had been photographed again for Mulberry’s previous campaign in the same 18th century mansion in Oxfordshire. The only difference being that this time round the setting was bright, happy and summery in contrary to the darker atmosphere of the previous one.
Cara poses in 1960s inspired white dresses teamed up with a brand new collection of luxurious leather handbags. At the same time she is accompanied by some very cute guests for what turns out to be an eccentric animal tea party. Fresh blossoming flowers in vibrant colours add vigour and elegance to the setting.
Indeed, as the brand itself highlighted, the inspiration was ‘a charming English tea party, with a Mulberry twist and some unexpected guests including a Parson’s Jack Russell, a Patter dale Terrier and a Great Dane, a pelican, two cockatoos, a tortoise and a little white pony.”
