London Fashion Week - Mulberry's MONSTER of a collection

The show photos of Mulberry's Autumn/Winter '12 collection are up on the fantastic Vogue website and, oh boy, are they fabulous!

Keeping it British with a delicious palette of warm shades and winter weather-ready fabrics, the show pieces were a real treat for the discerning fashionista who likes to keep it cosy whilst not compromising on style. Featuring gilets, coats, and oversize belted scarfs in big furs, contrasted with pencil skirts and wide-legged trousers beautifully cut in leather, the collection's colours ranged from the outrageous orange, bright yellows, autumnal browns, neutrals, to sophisticated greys and blacks. Carefully style in some fabric clashes of leather and lace, a touch of quilting, and a generous smattering of embellished bags, and the result is Mulberry's perfectly put-together Autumn/Winter collection. 

Best bits and must-haves include a gorgeous cream fur cropped jacket, skinny belts over quilted poncho-esque coats, and clever layers rocking subtle stripes, zig zags, and animal prints. I'll be taking my inspiration for the season from the collection's giant scarfs, splashes of gold and lux tones, and twisting the concept of the little black dress using combinations of structured lace, leather and dramatic all over fur! Love it!

London Fashion Week Begins!

I've been incredibly busy over the last few weeks but this weekend I'm mainly relaxing, eating neuhaus chocolates from a big red heart-shaped box kindly bought for me on Valentine's Day by my lovely fiance, and following snippets of news about what's going down at this year's London Fashion Week.

Here are my favourite blogs on the subject:



And, of course: London Fashion Week Daily

So far I'm really impressed by the Autumn/Winter 2012 offerings from Felder Felder and Antoni & Alison. Mainly loving the continuation of camels/beiges/gold colour palettes, with British, Aztec and geometric twists. The painted fabrics and quirky embellishments appearing in Antoni & Alison's collection of statement dresses look amazing! Ready to Wear is where it's at!

I'm also looking forward to seeing more from my old favourite Jasper Conran and from my more recent must-have designer, House of Holland. I'll keep you posted!

Enjoy! :-)
