London Fashion Week – Mulberry Spring/Summer 2011

Mulberry is also one British label which always causes a buzz during LFW. I heard the set was beautiful and had to check out the image and videos. The show was in Claridges which set the tone for a very English affair. The show was inspired by the English countryside and gardens, think The Secret Garden. The room was dressed like a country garden, complete with huge faux flowers and bunnies. There were even a couple of real life dogs on the catwalk, I heard that Mulberry made Brix Smith-Start’s dogs outfits so they could walk the catwalk…or should that be dogwalk?! 

The collection was beautiful, I want to throw away all of my clothes and dress in Mulberry. They also carried camel, biscuity tones through from autumn/winter to spring/summer. Like Burberry, Mulberry also mixed these with bright blues and pretty pinks. The prints were very striking, florals and animal print which had a more marbled effect rather than all over. There were some midi-length dresses which made me sit up and take note of how chic that in-between length can look, rather than dowdy. There were so many little details such as the super shiny gold buttons and little ruffles that caught my eye. Oh and let’s not forget the bags. The Alexa and Bayswater featured heavily in biscuit, beige and camel shades.

As a little aside, I’m also digging the fringe and will be taking pictures along to the hairdressers. It’s exactly as I had pictured it in my mind but I had yet to find a decent visual. Love the colour too.

    i cannot wait to see your new haircut. i love this style, but my hair is so thick, wavy and frizzy that I am not even attempting this do. My daughter's hair is a lot straighter than mine so at least she has cute bangs 😉

    The Mulberry hair is basically EXACTLY what I want mine to do, but it won't grow fast enough, haha!
