If you're as excited as us about the debut of Mulberry prescription glasses, then you'll want to join us in looking back at the history of the world renowned British brand. Born in Somerset 1971, Mulberry was founded by Roger Saul, who initiated the brand at his kitchen table. With just £500 backing from his mother, it didn't take Mulberry long to claim its crown as a household name. The one aspect that is mainly associated with Mulberry is the infamous tree logo. This was created by Saul's sister, and was inspired by tree's that he would pass everyday on his way to school. Clearly influenced by a love of nature, Mulberry never stray's from its values of British heritage and the importance of family.
It's true that Mulberry's first designs were buckled leather belts. However it is their accessories and womenswear lines that have taken the brand to new heights. Mulberry handbags are one of the brand's wildest successes. The iconic Trout Satchel, the Bayswater and the Alexa are all exceptional examples of British design, which is what Mulberry's creative director promises to bring to the new Mulberry glasses collection. The world first collection will include sophisticated optical frames, which will complement Mulberry's core leather goods offering. With eyewear being an important category in building a lifestyle image, it's only natural that Mulberry's newest line is Mulberry prescription glasses.
