Backstage at London Fashion Week.
Mulberry presented a spring summer 2009 collection that was all about bursts of juicy colours; lipstick, turquoise, pinks, yellow. These were then accented by greys and silver, gold and gunmetal hardware in the accessories. Both women and menswear are given doses of youthful tailoring (mostly down to the colour scheme) which is toughened up with the introduction of leather jackets. The ideas behind the garments and the styling seem to come from the idea of modern American college kids fused with old school English aristocratic charm. For the accessories, the bread and butter of Mulberry, we are introduced to new styles like the twisted chain/twill handled Jenah, the Mitzy hobo, satchel and tote and the pleated leather Joelle.
