LONDON - London served up a thick slice of cute, abstract and surreal themes on Tuesday to end its reign on the fashion calendar with the Mulberry, Roksanda Ilincic and Meadham Kirchhoff shows.
British brand Mulberry, famously known for its convetable bags, offered up a collection of sorbet-coloured and floral-inspired outfits on the last day of London Fashion Week's spring/summer 2013 shows.
The collection saw Mulberry go back to its roots, taking inspiration from the rich florals of the English countryside, displaying clothes in delicate shades of peach, mint and cream, embellished with detailed floral motifs.
Creative director Emma Hill revamped a 1970s silhouette using flowing dresses with low backs and tailored jackets, but introduced a sexy edge with bonded leather.
Outerwear was inspired by English country heritage, with models in military pea coats and boxy biker jackets over evening dresses in tan and black leather. Navy prints and jacquard textures, added the whimsical twist that the brand has become known for.
As always, all eyes were on the accessories as Mulberry debuted its Willow collection of bags and clutches, centred around a tote bag with floral prints and detailed petals added to Mulberry's signature postman lock.
