On Sunday, February 17, 2013 Mulberry unveiled its new Autumn/Winter 2013 collection at London Fashion Week, with an inspiring take on English style traditions. The show and collection kicked off with English rich color palette, botanical prints similar to the flowers of England, English landscaping and nature. All the styles featured a blend of English traditions like modern tailoring, gorgeously cut coats, iconic check, woven, bold prints to make each style complete.
The entrance of Claridge’s was embraced with a swarm of butterflies and tangled wild flowers, along with a carefully crafted floral and foliage structure framing the catwalk made of butterflies, leaves and Mulberry fruits, along with a mixture of woodland flowers such as sunflowers, chrysanthemums, bluebells and poppies.
Right before the show guests including Lana Del Rey, Vanessa Kirby, Douglas Booth, Harley Viera Newton, Holliday Grainger, Atlanta de Cadenet Taylor, Alexa Chung, Juno Temple and Sam Claflin enjoyed light cocktails like woodland-inspired juices, spinach and mushroom or bramble berry muffins and Rococo chocolate ladybirds.
