LFW: Mulberry Autumn/Winter 2011

Showing during London Fashion Week, British label Mulberry returned to home soil for the Autumn/Winter 2011 collection (after spending a few seasons in New York), and with a star-studded front row that included Clémence Poésy, and Nicholas Hoult it was a show that was highly anticipated. The label’s designer, Emma Hill was inspired by Roald Dahl's Fantastic Mr. Fox which lead to red-haired models flaunting sophisticated Winter jackets, sleek floor length maxi-dresses and layered trench coat looks. 

Hill used a mix of metallic shades with Autumnal colours to evoke a sense of Winter, which was reinforced with the multi-layering used in many of the looks - roll-neck sweaters paired with knee-length dresses and coats.  As per usual, the label which is most famous for accessories added some additions to their range of bags - pony skin Bayswater bags, a new chain-handle bag named ‘Cartier’ and a quilted version of the hit bag Alexa.

It was refreshing to see the label back in London - for a label that has firm British roots it seems unwise and unnatural for it to disappear in to the background noise at New York Fashion Week, when instead it can be one of the pinnacles of the London showings, exemplifying sophisticated British style.
