Mulberry’s BBQ and Pool Party at Coachella Festival

Mulberry are very good at making friends. If they were the new kid at school they’d win all their classmates over by lunchtime. Yesterday Mulberry hosted a barbeque and pool party at The Parker hotel, in Palm Springs, to give the A-list guests at Coachella festival a chance to relax. They also cleverly had the Autumn/Winter 2012 collection on hand, hoping to boost their Hollywood profile further. It’s not all fun and games remember, Mulberry are a mega brand.

Emma Watson took a break from filming The Bling Ring with Sofia Coppola, and partied with Lily Collins, Kate Bosworth and Mulberry’s Emma Hill. Dree Hemingway also made an appearance, wearing Dolce & Gabbana’s chilli print Spring/Summer look, while model Arizona Muse stayed cool in a straw hat. See all the pictures from Mulberry’s VIP event below:

Guests ate chicken, shrimp, vegetable kebabs and Mr Parker’s Salads followed by lemonade popsicles and got friendly with Mulberry’s monster cushions, inspired by the children’s book Where The Wild Things Are. See more images after the jump…
