Mulberry SS11 – LFW

Mulberry’s LFW presentation was held in Claridges Hotel. This season they took inspiration from the film “Grey Gardens” as well as the timeless children’s novel “The Secret Garden” by Frances Hodgson Burnett.

The Mulberry girl was on fire this season, looked like 30 Karen Elson’s walking down the catwalk with a flash of red hair.

Models also walked down the catwalk with Gladys and Pixie (Brix Smith-Start’s pugs) dressed in little doggy trenches.

Animal prints/texture, florals, and bold colour were key for Mulberry this season.

As ever the Mulberry accessories were on point, with new additions Tilly and Cory, and old faithfuls Bayswater and Alexa. The footwear was condensed this season, the Bootie, Wedge, and Sandal were the three styles used to make up the D-Ring Wrap Collection. The giant studs, over-sized buckle hardware and luxe fabrics make the collection a must have for SS11.
