Cara Delevingne is the face of Mulberry’s latest campaign.
The British model isn’t the only star to appear in the shoot, although she shares the camera with some unusual characters. Among them are a tortoise called Pukka, a cockatoo called Spud and Dusty the pony.
The campaign was shot by Tim Walker, a photographer known for his work with Mulberry. The idea was based around an afternoon tea, with Cara seen standing in front of a table laden with tea pots, plates, cakes and desserts. She is dressed in a white lace A-line mini-dress with one of the company’s signature brown bags slung over her arm.
Dusty the pony can be seen behind the table, with some birds pecking at the ground in front of the model. The campaign has a springtime vibe, with pink and white flowers climbing the walls behind the table.
The images were taken at Shotover House, a country house in the Oxfordshire area of the UK. It was the same location the label used for its Fall/Winter 13 campaign, which saw Cara posing with owls.
“The spring 2014 campaign was a beautiful but naughty tea party with Cara and her ark of animals – the perfect Mulberry moment. They didn’t have the best table manners, but Cara was very forgiving,” art director Ronnie Cooke Newhouse told WWD.
Stephen Wolstenholme shared art director duties, with Edward Enninful styling the shoot and Val Garland on make-up duties.
The images will be seen in the February editions of the fashion monthlies.
