Mulberry Spring 2013 Runway Review

One of London's most star-studded shows, Mulberry guests including Kate Moss, Alexa Chung, Lana Del Rey, Rebecca Hall, Jessica Ennis, Vanessa Kirby, Gillian Anderson, Joanne Froggatt, Elizabeth McGovern, Romola Garai, Olivia Palermo, Harley Viera Newton, Atlanta de Cadenet, Tamzin Merchant, and Freddie Fox. And, in keeping with the brand's youthfully refined aesthetic, fruit juices and bespoke rainbow cake baked by the Claridge’s pastry chef were served before the show.

Creative director Emma Hill described the collection as a "blend of Mulberry’s English country heritage with a sorbet summer palette," so it's little surprise that the collection featured a rainbow of pastels alongside some neutrals and seasonal prints.

Silhouettes came in both structured and relaxed iterations and leather was particularly prominently featured making for a slew of fantastic pieces including wide leg trousers and cropped leather 3/4 sleeve jackets.

Accessories are always central to a Mulberry collection and this season, alongside bestsellers like the Del Rey and the Alexa, the Willow collection was launched, which featured a structured tote with a zip-detached envelope clutch on the front — the epitome of chic practicality.
