Mulberry Opens New Flagship Store at 50 New Bond Street in London

LONDON, Dec 9, 2010 / — The English luxury company Mulberry, synonymous with celebrities such as Alexa Chung, Olivia Palermo and Gemma Arterton, is celebrating their new flagship store. Located at 50 New Bond Street, the new sore is the result of a two-year collaboration with Universal Design Studio.

Shoppers will be awed by an innovative, dynamic, environmentally friendly and a unique retail environment that reflects the brands aesthetic.

The feature is a key element in Mulberry’s drive to create a series of stores that subtly contrast the traditional with the modern whilst supporting energy conservationism.

With worldwide acclaim for highly-crafted fine leather goods, , Mulberry, has today announced their interim results for the six months ended 30 September 2010 which has seen total revenues increased by 38% to £44.7 million with profit before tax increasing by 207% to £4.7 million.
