Mulberry’s Spring 2012 presentation took place yesterday with two showings in the morning.
As we waited to enter the venue we were treated to ice cream and bottles of pink lemonade which came courtesy of a Mulberry branded vintage ice cream van.
Upon entering the Claridges ballroom it felt like we were walking into a fantasy land full of blow up animals and model ice cream cones.
The next room was the runway decked out like an English beach with sparkling pier lights and fun fair models with “I do like to be beside the seaside” playing in the background.
The collection had a sportswear meets vintage feel with colourful pieces we could wear right now.
We saw hooded trenches, layered sheer long skirts, leggings under dresses, drawstring shorts, column dresses, maxi dress, skirts, macs, gold windbreakers and cropped jackets.
The striped candy pink, mint green and lemon sherbet pieces reminded me of a Twister ice lolly. The rest of the colour palette included fudge, marshmallow white plus navy, black and gold.
The models walked down the runway with Barbarella teased tresses by Sam McKnight. Mathias van Hooff ensured the models has a dewy English Rose glow.
Key accessories were of course the bags which included a brand new Travel Collection. The Alexa and Lily bags were updated with cute teddy rivets and twist locks.
For your pooch keep them warm and dry with a Doggy Rain Mac in blue or lemon sherbet.
