LFW: Mulberry

By: Maddison Brown

It isn't London Fashion Week without Mulberry. The iconic British label took the runway with classical English designs. Plaid stole the show in many different variations. Most were featured in a palette of deep maroon, navy blue, elegant mauve and the 2013 colour of the year; emerald. Tweed and leather were the textiles of choice, with heavy layering and print combinations. One print in particular was a delicate yet almost retro-inspired flower design that was shown on many trench coats. 

The sophistication of the mulberry brand was kept alive through many of these trench coats, as well as richly finished tweed jackets and leather ensembles. Trimming was shown in what looked like fur, but according to the Fall 13 Mulberry's creative director Emma Hill, was actually straightened sheepskin or as she calls it, "sheep with a blow-dry". The show finished with special guest "Max", the dog taking the runway in a traditional plaid outfit himself. All in all a quirky, yet heritage driven line perfect for Fall.
