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.
