It’s time to say goodbye to the Mulberry Alexa Bag. The design, which has been around since 2010 and inspired quite a frenzy upon its debut, is coming to the end of its lifespan as part of the changes being made to the brand’s accessories strategy under new designer Johnny Coca.

We’ve been anticipating the retail arrival of former Céline accessories director Johnny Coca’s first bags as the creative director at Mulberry since he was hired, and their day has finally come.

Word on the street is that there might finally be some good news in the pipeline for Mulberry. The struggling British brand, which has been without a creative director since fan-favorite Emma Hill left over conflicts with former CEO Bruno Guillon, is reportedly eying Johnny Coca, head of accessories design at handbag wunderkind Céline.

Mulberry Sales Decline

Despite debuting a line of more accessible bags to win back old customers and signing on Cara Delevingne to do a high-profile capsule collection and campaign, Mulberry’s fortunes still haven’t turned around.
