Spring Summer 2013 takes us back to the Seventies and the years of a young Mulberry brand. Inspired by nostalgia of the decade, the posh practicality of Le Style Anglais gets mixed up with the laid-back vibe of ethereal California girls. In the setting of an irreverent English garden, this season’s Mulberry girl mixes hazy summer palette of luscious fresh sorbet colours with the covetable luxury of Mulberry’s rural English craft heritage.
Key silhouettes allude to Seventies shapes and tailoring, re-imagined through Mulberry’s eyes. Coats are thrown over summer dresses in contrasting luxurious fabrics with an air of English nonchalance, continuing a tradition of layering textures. Playful tailoring meets classic elegance and refined, luxe detailing is strewn with iconic Mulberry hardware.
For Accessories, inspiration is found from vintage Mulberry styles, reviving and reinventing detailing from the brand’s archives. New shapes feature super-practical heritage hardware, and the collection introduces elegant simplicity with new totes and the introduction of new families such as Eliza, Delilah and Cecily. - less
