Mulberry has reportedly asked Johnny Coca, head of leather goods and accessories at Céline, to be its new creative director.
The luxury business, which has been without a creative director since Emma Hill left in September 2013, approached Coca to take on the role, according to The Sunday Times.
The news follows Mulberry issuing its third profit warning last week. The company said its full-year pre-tax profits will be “significantly” below expectations due to a sharp decline in sales during the first half. Revenues at Mulberry were down 17% to £64.7m in the six months to September 30.
Mulberry chief executive Bruno Guillon left the business in March.
