A FLORAL CONVERSATION
London: Mulberry’s Creative Director Emma Hill went monochrome for S/S 13, but the effect was warm rather than harsh or modern, opening on smoothly rich capes and even a relaxed-fit sweatshirt cut from caramel leather. The collection quickly expanded into head-to-toe feminine pastels and added interest to basic 60s silhouettes with playful cartoonish pop-art florals inspired by a traditional English garden. Whether printed or solid, coats and jackets were Mulberry’s standout must-haves for Spring, particularly motorcycle styles stamped with conversational alligator graphics or stitched with retro floral appliqué. Accessorized with the brand’s must-have bags, this time focused on a structured smooth-leather shopper, the presentation cherry-picked the best of Mulberry’s heritage for the runway, while remaining reliably youthful and optimistic.—Nina Stotler
