Mulberry Womenswear A/W10

Furry friends came out on the runway adding to the jungle book themes

We should have guessed from the opening soundtrack of the Jungle Book theme, 'Bare Necessities' that there'd be animal prints and furs in abundance. From patterned tie dye leopard prints on everything in sight to purple furs on coats and cropped jackets, the fury theme was definitely in play with little pugs on the runway obediently on the models' leashes.

Diamanté studded and hooded trenches were the more grown up pieces, along with shaped shifts and patterned baroque cocktail dresses in royal blues adorned with decadently jewelled necklaces. Contrasting heights of cute tie dye flats versus print knee high boots were worn with bubble hem and dramatically flared A-line skirts and open pleat beetle coats. Whilst more spring-like pieces like pale chiffon jackets and equally puffy skirts were shown towards the end, along with playful floral prints in darker fuschias and purples. And for the bags? Of course they were quilted and oversized, or slouchy leathers, worn with ruched mutton sleeve jackets and giant bouffants.
