It’s What’s Inside That Counts: Mulberry’s Christmas Video

Whether it’s about your heart or about your presents, it’s what’s inside that counts. Mulberry’s take on an upper-class country Christmas will have you chuckling, not least because all the characters are played by children. A controlling, posh mother receives her family for Christmas: two sisters, a secretive son and a charming boyfriend. This first video establishes our cast, with one sister giving the other her own Mulberry Bayswater handbag, but without proper wrapping paper, concluding that ‘it’s what’s inside that counts’.

Whether it’s about your heart or about your presents, it’s what’s inside that counts. Mulberry’s take on an upper-class country Christmas will have you chuckling, not least because all the characters are played by children. A controlling, posh mother receives her family for Christmas: two sisters, a secretive son and a charming boyfriend. This first video establishes our cast, with one sister giving the other her own Mulberry Bayswater handbag, but without proper wrapping paper, concluding that ‘it’s what’s inside that counts’.

Brought to the screen by Hugo Guinness whose work includes The Grand Budapest Hotel and the particular vision of Albert Maya, the film plays upon the paradox of wanting to be an adult when you’re a child but when you’re grown up, all you want to be is a kid again. As Mulberry’s Creative Director, Johnny Coca reflects, ‘Christmas brings out the kid in all of us.’ Part two of the story premieres later in November.

Cocktails at the General Store

SEEN is tireless in her cocktail research, and very much enjoyed travelling to Highbury last week to try The General Store’s new summer cocktail menu and to check out the new interior. She was delighted to sample a Honey Mimosa, very sweet and fruity and just the ticket after a hot journey. It was, as its name suggests, a Mimosa with just a touch of honey.

Canaletto: A Drawing Workshop with Alexandra Blum

SEEN has long been an admirer of Alexandra Blum’s liminal and apocalyptic renderings of London’s urban spaces, in which the capital seems ever-changing. It is the artist’s job to capture not only space but the passage of time itself.

Love Hunt at the British Museum

SEEN had the pleasure (pun intended) of being invited to a ‘Love Hunt’ at the British Museum. The museum, founded in 1753, is committed to preserving art, culture and history, and has collected around 8 million objects. These artefacts come from every corner of the world, revealing a fragment of many significant moments in time, from Mesopotamia to the Vikings; from the Inuits to the Indians. So, when one embarks on a visit to the world famous British Museum, where does one start?
