Winter is officially here and all I can think about are breezy summer dresses and a life without the need for tights and a thousand layers. Recent Fashion Weeks haven't done much to help this either, with their exotic and insightful glimpse into Spring/Summer 2011. My favourite collection by far had to be Mulberry's. I wrote a little review of it a while ago and thought I'd post it now whilst I'm in my longing phase for sunnier days.
Mulberry SS11 - New York Fashion Week
Mulberry is the name on everyone’s lips at the moment, and after last year’s oh so stylish Alexa bags who can blame them? The line of coveted bags were an instant hit and an immediate sell out which succeeded in pushing Mulberry further into the fashion spotlight than it’s ever been before. With Emma Hill, recent Creative Director of Mulberry, as one of the main forces behind Mulberry’s recent and rising success the pressure was on for her to continue to wow the fashion elite at New York Fashion Week.
Mulberry, of course, exceeded expectations once again and presented a fresh palette of pastel orange, dusty pink, white and cornflower blue with hints of trademark tan accessories. The collection was impeccably perfect for Spring/Summer with light floaty linen dresses and super feminine skirt suits. Rather than going down the typical floral pattern route for an obvious spring touch, rosettes and 3-D frills were instead added to dresses. Mulberry effortlessly succeeded in creating the ultimate pretty spring wardrobe for the modern girl about town.
