The two girl group members transformed into English royalty and wore pieces from Mulberry’s 2018 Fall/Winter collection.
Mulberry’s creative director Johnny Coca stated, “We highlighted British style from various perspectives. A Mulberry woman has the elegance of royalty and a rebellious mind at the same time.”
He continued, “Rosé and Lisa are stylish. I hope their expressions of unpredictable and contemporary style will be expressed as they are.”
In an accompanying interview, Lisa and Rosé spoke about their latest mini album promotions. “Our hiatus was long, but we’re getting a lot of strength because many people are giving us love,” said the girl group members.
Commenting on their recent concert in Osaka, they said, “We thought about how nice it would be if the moment of the four of us standing on stage lasted forever.”
Rosé talked about their future plans, saying, “I’m curious about how far we can go and what more we can do. The four of us really love music and this job.” Lisa added, “We’re really happy people because we’re doing what we like.”
