Mulberry Spring 2010: The Romantic Side of Teen Angst

Mulberry Spring 2010NEW YORK, Sep 15, 2009 / FW/ — A small space decorated with merry-go-round horses, it was a very intimate setting for the Mulberry Spring 2010 show; nevertheless, it was well attended and one of the famous faces in the audience is French Vogue ediatrix Carine Roitfeld.

Inspired by Sofia Coppola’s “Virgin Suicides” and Tim Walker’s photography, the collection brought to life the glorious days of adolescence, the period between being a girl and woman, when naiveté and sophistication blends in perfect harmony.

With the ever present teen angst, Mulberry proposed sophisticated mini dresses with sheered skirts that are sometimes accessorized with a large bow alongside relaxed hipster shorts rolled at the hem.

Muted colors and faded prints reminisce those summer days that swing from hot to cool; the brief jackets with puff sleeves are both cute and functional as it protects the wearer from the cooler spring days and nights.

While other designers go for an urban edge, Mulberry begged to differ and went for the romantic side, which by the way worked perfectly making the collection highly covetable and desirable.
