LONDON, Sep 19, 2012/ — In the setting of an irreverent English garden a decadent medley of flora and fauna blends with luscious fresh colour and tropical-inspired prints, Emma Hill, Creative Director for Mulberry unveiled her Spring 2013 collection.
Taking back her audience to the 1970s, when Mulberry was still a young brand, Emma Hill alluded to Seventies shapes and tailoring, re-imagined through Mulberry’s eyes while also proposing Mulberry’s signature layering textures weaves that was seen throughout the collection.
Leather is a significant influence for outerwear, taking shapes that would traditionally be cut in cloth and reworking them in soft leather shapes.
Coats find inspiration in classic English military wear, finished with iconic Mulberry detailing in both heritage and seasonal colours. Oversized bikers and Peacoats are borrowed from the boys, visualised as nonchalantly thrown over eveningwear on crisp English evenings.
Traditional British menswear also forms the basis for tailored jackets and tuxedos, sweetened with fresher colours in head-to-toe colour and print blocked looks.
