London: Mulberry’s Creative Director Emma Hill switched gears from Spring’s lovely take on the garden party, tackling menswear with the brand’s signature trend-conscious creativity. Using the classic children’s book The Wind in the Willows as a starting point, Hill infused hand-knit tweeds, florals and scribble prints with a fantasy element, their large proportions establishing a whimsical mood despite a mostly dark palette of black and chocolate. Off-kilter layering looked fresh too, combining high water cropped trousers with pleated miniskirts and boxy jackets trimmed in fur, while skinny knit turtlenecks beneath short-sleeved pieces created a schoolgirl effect. For evening Hill’s tunic dress and cropped trouser combos were reminiscent of Prada’s F/W 12 collection, but the idea was expertly translated for the Mulberry customer with plaid sequin patterns and sturdy platform loafer heels. —Nina Stotler
