Mulberry Spring 2012

Mulberry Spring 2012

Inspired by the British seaside and all the campy fun that comes with it — donkey rides, ice cream, and the inevitable rain that makes great British Summer style synonymous with rain gear. That said, the palette was sweet as candy — literally the colors are named lemon sherbet, candy pink, and marshmallow white. The style is playful, but luxurious — there are raincoats, many of them with oversized silhouettes or super-short lengths and paired with long dresses and skirts. It's a mix and match style that manages to be sporty, but totally feminine thanks to details like lace applique and silky fabrics. Mulberry is known for accessories, and the new travel collection, inspired by vintage steamer trunks, features metal corners and a luggage tag. Inspired by the prizes won along beach-side arcades, Mulberry added teddy rivets and twist locks to the iconic Alexa and Lily style.

  • Trends: rain gear, short/long proportions, stripes.
  • Colors: candy twists on soft colors: lemon, candy pink, marshmallow, and fudge.
  • Key Look: we love the proportion play — short jackets with sweet dresses; also the animal-print dresses are amazing.
  • Accessories: shoes are woven sandals in mixed leather; the new bag collection is called the Travel Collection. The Alexa bag gets adorned by a mini-teddy bear rivet.
  • Who Would Wear It: fun, eclectic girls like Kirsten Dunst or Sarah Jessica Parker.
