LFW AW10 Report: Mulberry

21 February 2010

Glitter covered panthers, gold roses hung from trees, sumptuous velvet seating and swishing beaded curtains kept the fash pack guessing before Mulberry's show began. The Jungle Book music and narration kicked in and the look came together.

Though maybe not life's 'Bare Necessities' as the song goes, Emma Hill knows how to lure us into adoring the kind of pieces that get editors quickly jotting 'MUST HAVE - Buy!' in their notepads. With leopard print being the overarching statement grring its way down the catwalk in purple, pink, cream and neutral for
short dresses, swinging A-line lampshade-shaped skirts and dropped waist coats.

The looks were styled in an uptown kind of way with matchy-matchy accessories and a little pug or two for effect. Frothy and young, this collection catered to girls who not only have a weak spot for killer accessories but for all things girly - like mini skirt suits, tulle-frilled dresses and luxe daywear like the cobalt blue hooded trench coat. So what's the new bag shape we hear you cry?! First, meet Greta - she's got great supersized tassles and studding. Then there's Edna - with a charm-embellished chain strap which you can remove and wear as a necklace. Genius idea! We also recommend keeping an eye out for...

1. The knee high boots. Season upon season ankle boots have led the way. But Mulberry's new style, particularly in pale grey are hot to trot!

2. Double strapped Mary-Jane court shoes.

3. The Alexa in smudged purple leopard.

4. The gold chain-trimmed black evening frock. We reckon this will have a red carpet moment any day now!
