Mulberry kicked off London Fashion Week this morning with not one, but two showings of their latest collection.
Rold Dahl’s Fantastic Mr.Fox theme went down a treat with everyone, and apart from woodland animal seating plans Mulberry treated guests to blackberry and apple refreshments, and toadstool fresh creme cakes, and gingerbread fox shaped biscuits.
Once seated (behind the stellar dog front row!), models strode down the catwalk to a mash-up of George Clooney’s Fox character script from the aforementioned film, and a mix of background music.
Models were dressed in a rich earth tone palette of neutral and autumnal shades alongside dashes of foxglove pink fuchsia and bright green cabbage. Bird print dresses and oversized checked scarfs were also on offer, alongside floor length maxi dresses, military style navy coats and lilac pleated dresses which flowed like silk as the models walked down the catwalk.
The country theme continued with triple layered pleated skirts in cabbage green, dark green knitted cardigans, fur coats and Harris tweed skirt suits. Accessories ranged from bright mustard and green wedge shoe boots to animal coats for dogs, and the new versions of Mulberrys classic Bayswater and Tilie bags, plus a brand new edition of a Taylor bag.
Classic and quintessential – Mulberry at its best.
