After reading about dogs on the catwalk and giant glittery lions at Mulberry, I was even more impatient to discover their new collection.
I love observing this major brand becoming stronger and building its identity. With Luella sadly gone, there is a girly/quirky shaped gap to fill on the fashion scene and Mulberry seems to have taken the lead. Glorious prints, beautiful colours, interesting textures and THE SHOES had me looking at everything with a big smile.
The Alexa bag, clearly flavour of the moment was also featured in quilted leopard print jersey (I know how wrong this sounds) and I was over the moon to see flat shoes (you read right). Little studded mary janes, with NO HEEL. There were also some high heeled beauties, of course, but how refreshing to see flats on the catwalk.
I also must confess the music from the Jungle Book probably played a big part in my overly enthusiastic opinion of the show!
And the hair, CAN WE PLEASE TALK ABOUT THE HAIR?!?! I think it was up there in my top 5 hair moments. Massive bouffants, all backcombed to fuck like Gibson girls on acid. YES PLEASE. /omg moment.
