WHERE IT NOW | Runway Review: A-line skirts, slim-fit trousers and glamorous evening shift dresses in mini lengths, were wearable and wonderful but the show-stopping items definitely came in the form of stunning leather accessories.
In the Fall 2010 show from the much-loved British brand, Mulberry showcased a range of dazzling leather accessories as well as an impressive collection of ready-to-wear garments.
Set in the beautiful location of The Orangery in Kensington Palace, Mulberry exhibited a diverse collection of 35 looks in a palette of cornflower blue, mauve, purple, orange and beige.
Stand-out pieces included a shiny blue trench coat as well as sophisticated lady-like skirt suits which came in bright blue silk, and black tweed laced with silver highlights.
A-line skirts, slim-fit trousers and glamorous evening shift dresses in mini lengths, were wearable and wonderful but the show-stopping items definitely came in the form of stunning leather accessories.
The must-have ‘Alexa’ satchel bag was exhibited in an exciting array of new colours including cream, grey, black, pink and purple. A super-soft tangerine leather drawstring sac also created a stir amongst handbag lovers in the audience whilst pastel-coloured shoe boots held major appeal.
Animal prints in outlandish colours added an over-the-top, fun feel to the collection, which was echoed in the show’s accompanying soundtrack – ‘The Bare Necessities’ from the children’s classic, Jungle Book.
Inspired by “The Valley of the Dolls and naughty English royalty”, Chief Designer Emma Hill sure knows how to put on a good show and, let’s face it, every girl needs to carry a gorgeous Mulberry creation – they’re simply one of life’s bare necessities. — Kirsty in London
