Cara Delevingne is leaving it to the birds for her newest campaign.
The bold-brow beauty stars in Mulberry’s fall campaign, which was inspired by the dark mystery of the English countryside. Dressed with a pop of Pantone’s color of the year for one of the images, Delevingne climbed a Brothers Grimm-esque tree, created by Shona Heath, at the 18th century Shotover House in Oxfordshire and made friends with a parliament of owls to show of the luxurious looks for the season.
For creative director Emma Hill’s final campaign for the brand, she opted for a sultry edge to the brand’s heritage as she sought out Ronnie Cooke Newhouse to direct and Tim Walker, who helmed the brand’s spring campaign, to shoot the mystical ads. “Cozy, familiar, rural scenes but with a dark, mysterious and seductive veil,” Hill described for Women’s Wear Daily. “Traditional fables, botanical prints and the earthiness of the countryside by night all played their part, and this sense of dark beauty was beautifully captured by Tim and Ronnie for the campaign.”
The ad is slated to run in August issues of British Vogue and Condé Nast Traveler, but has already sparked possible décor ideas for Halloween!
