Mulberry's Guide to Britain
Includes everything from Abbey Road, to Isabella Blow, and a recipe on how to make Venison Scotch eggs.
British fashion is all about quintessential institutions of style and class, like Dame Vivienne Westwood and luxury label Mulberry. The latter has handpicked their favourite things to see and do in the motherland, joining in this year's celebration of all things British as part of the government's GREAT campaign to promote Britain on a global scale.
Brilliant Britain features contributions from British luminaries like photographer Tim Walker, philosopher Alain de Botton, and UK Vogue Editor Alexandra Shulman, along with others such as Australian style consultant Yasmin Sewell, and Anna Dello Russo who says, "eccentricity is what makes Britain great. And hats." The online guide is a fitting blend of classical, romantic, imaginative and unique faces and places — featuring everything from the infamous Abbey Road zebra crossing, to signature dishes like fish and chips, to style icons like Susie Bubble.
The website highlights will be printed in a zine that will be sold in Mulberry stores as well as those of featured brands. The label also wants to know about your favourite places and is asking for recommendations to be submitted online. The featured nominations will be displayed on a geographical map of Britain and go in the competition to win a Mulberry 'handbag of British curiosities'. This prize will include one of the label's signature bags filled with oddities collected by everyone featured in the guide.
