Georgia May Jagger, Mulberry muse and poster girl for the British rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle, has teamed up with Mulberry to create the ultimate London Cool Biker Jacket.
What makes a leather jacket the perfect leather jacket? Georgia May had very precise views:
“It’s so important to have a leather jacket that fits well and is comfortable. I personally wanted a longer-line style that came to the hips, as it flatters the figure, and the arms need to be cut just at the right width so you can layer a jumper underneath and still move your arms!”
Georgia May was inspired by her personal collection of vintage jackets, collected over the years from vintage stores and cult labels.
Mulberry has the knowledge and know-how of working with leather and is internationally loved for its buttery soft, natural leathers, used on iconic bags such as the Bayswater and Lily. Previous Mulberry leather jackets have been worn by Kate Moss, Florence Welch, Julianne Moore and Scarlett Johansson among others.
The Mulberry Georgia May Jagger Biker Jacket is crafted from Soft Black Lambskin Leather with two zip pockets and typical vintage biker styling. The iconic silhouette has Georgia May Jagger’s personal design twist: a flash of jewel bright lining in a choice of Emerald Green, Sapphire Blue or deep pink Ruby Magenta.
“A leather jacket is a wardrobe essential in my opinion – it goes with everything! Classic black is perfect for any outfit, but I specifically wanted my Mulberry Biker Jacket to have a pop of colour in the lining – the jewel colours really stand out.”
To complement the jacket is a collection of cool silk scarves featuring Mulberry icons, a Bee, an Owl or a Fox. The Small Silk Square is perfect worn as a bandana or to add a decorative flourish to your favourite bag, while the Large Silk Scarf is a statement wraparound piece. Choose from Emerald Green, Sapphire Blue or Ruby Magenta.
Ever practical, Georgia May also dreamt up a small leather pouch on a biker chain that can wrap around the wrist or sit across the body on the go, with your essentials zipped safely inside.
The global launch of the Mulberry Georgia May Jagger Biker Jacket is Tuesday 1 September and the collection will be available on Mulberry.com and in stores globally.
