Mulberry Spring Summer 2012 Key Looks
Mulberry converted Claridges their fashion week home into a little taste of the Great British Seaside starting right at the front door with the classic british ice cream van. Models walked through a giant fun fair style mouth to the sounds of "oh I do like to be beside the seaside"
Clothing was light and on occassion wispy, the colour palette a range of pastels and candy inspired tones. One essential item for the British summer time appeared on the runway in a number of variations and that is the raincoat, Mulberry makes the raincoat fashionable.
Make sure you pay close attention to the bejewelled and embelished outfits and you'll catch a peek at the gorgeous matching Lily bag “It was inspired by the neon-festooned lights at Blackpool and I was looking at pictures of when I was growing up in the Seventies and holidays meant sitting on the beach with a cagoule on. It’s still very rooted in outerwear and she’s still very Mulberry and that English girl,” Mulberry’s creative director Emma Hill explained.
In all the Mulberry Spring Summer in my opinion does a great job of carrying it's theme and inspiration into fantastic, fashionable and wearable pieces, there's only two things missing for the full seaside experience.......newspaper wrapped fish and chips and a kiss me quick hat.
