Emma Hill is the Creative Director of Mulberry and the woman responsible for introducing cool clothing and covetable IT bags into the ever-expanding British heritage brand. Mulberry was founded in 1971 and has produced iconic bags including the Bayswater and the Roxanne. Mulberry bags are a woman’s prerogative, typically delivered in earthy neutral colours (with the occasional flash of colour) and emblazoned with the brand’s signature tree motif. A Ravensbourne graduate, Emma lived in New York for several years and worked for Marc Jacobs, Burberry, Calvin Klein and Chloé, among others, before returning to the UK and filling Stuart Vevers’ boots at Mulberry in 2008. Inspired by grungy girls like Alexa Chung (who she named a bag after) and Kate Moss, Emma creates bags that women want – or more accurately pine after – and continues to raise the already prolific reputation of Mulberry.
