LONDON, Sep 18, 2012/ — Going back the 1970s when Mulberry was still a young brand, Creative Director Emma Hill alluded to the Seventies shapes and tailoring, re-imagined through Mulberry’s eyes.
In the setting of an irreverent English garden a decadent medley of flora and fauna blends with luscious fresh colour and tropical-inspired prints, mixing up a laid-back spectrum of sorbet shades and exotic inspiration with the covetable luxury of Mulberry’s rural English craft heritage.
Leather is a significant influence for outerwear, taking shapes that would traditionally be cut in cloth and reworking them in soft leather shapes.
Coats find inspiration in classic English military wear, finished with iconic Mulberry detailing in both heritage and seasonal colours. Oversized bikers and Peacoats are borrowed from the boys, visualised as nonchalantly thrown over eveningwear on crisp English evenings. Traditional British menswear also forms the basis for tailored jackets and tuxedos, sweetened with fresher colours in head-to-toe colour and print blocked looks.
