London Fashion Week: Mulberry Spring/Summer 2014 Collection

by - Saturday, September 21, 2013

What an interesting morning for a Sunday at London Fashion Week. I think the fashion crowd can say the least too. Mulberry gave their hint of the first part of the it’s spring/summer 2014 collection theme of a traditional stately home since, the brand teamed up with Wedgewood to bring a set of tea cup and saucer into its invitation. Claridge’s hosted the traditional show venue covering its ballroom with green carpet full of daises and fragrant flowers whilst, laying out a buffet of afternoon goodies to the fashion crowd ahead the show.

Yet amongst the good cups of tea, cake and a fabulous collection there was also a goodbye to be said as well as to Mulberry’s Creative Director Emma Hill who will leave the brand as of  tomorrow. (Thanks Emma for making Mulberry into what it is today from the bags and of course the RTW collection).

A worrying moment no longer regarding, Cara’s presence of showing at London this season because the model returned to open the show this morning in a silk blouse and a monochrome floral coat.  After Cara’s catwalk presence came all Mulberry signatures all at once regarding, silk dressers having the detail of floral prints in the palette of red and black whilst, some of them added that extra detail of sequins. As of last spring/summer season the all in white outfits are a trend again. (Pleased about this).  Stripes featured in sheer panels across the knitwear sweaters whilst, the floral prints continued to feature on skirts to pea coats. Napa leather returned with the T-shirt.

    As we’ve seen at Victoria Beckham’s mainline collection they was also the feature of the culottes which has got everyone talking,  about from how to wear them to even debating in wither to wear them next season. (We will have to wait and see).

As for an update on the clothing for next season Mulberry’s iconic handbags got their update too. The Kensal shoulder bag came in grey with ostrich detailing whilst adding its own new design of the briefcase lock. The classic Bayswater came with two striped panels amongst coming (new this season) double sided. Willow came out as its original yet its clutch came double sided.

  Overall from the clothes, handbags, and the pooches in Mulberry doggy coats the front row was star studded from the likes of Alexa Chung to Tallulah Harlech. Yet on a personal note this season has to be Mulberry’s strongest collection yet.
