Mulberry Clothing S/S 2012. Battle of the British Berrys
Mulberry continues to ride on the coattails of Burberry’s global surge with a back to Blackpool extravaganza. We’re fans of the “British Berrys” here at Kitmeout, so why not take a butchers at the movie. Nice!
The collection was inspired by the “neon-festooned lights at Blackpool” creative director Emma Hill said after the show. “I was looking at pictures of when I was growing up in the Seventies and holidays meant sitting on the beach with a cagoule on. It’s still very rooted in outerwear and she’s still very Mulberry and that English girl.”
“She is a bit vamped up and a bit sexier – she’s a posh pier girl,” she described, pointing out in particular the embellished pieces – a skirt, a jewel-encrusted hoody and bomber, the more runway pieces.
