Mulberry SS15

"The Spring Summer 2015 collection is inspired by the sheer joy of an English country garden on a summer’s day, with traditional garden borders brimming with British blooms. Floral prettiness is tempered by the ‘can do, can dig’ gardeners’ attire with practical pockets and utilitarian shapes. Laser-cut leather and substantial sandals contradict the delicacy of the intricate prints. The Mulberry Girl may be wearing the finest silk, but she remains cool, contemporary, and ready to enjoy herself whatever the English spring weather throws at her..."

Sadly no catwalk show again this season to unveil the latest collection, a great loss to the LFW schedule, as i am sure many will agree. However the collection preview in my eyes is a much stronger offering than the FW14 unveil, with a clear brand message and some of the Mulberry details that we know and love, that i feel have been missing since Emma Hill left.


What's a Mulberry show without the best bit - the beautiful bags. This season we are introduced to Delphie, a simple everyday style with a cleaver little secret....the flap flips over to reveal a contrasting colour and creates a whole new look, offering the wearer two bags in one. Also some old favourites got a refresh in seasonal fabrics and colours. 


Beautiful detailing across the entire collection - intricate lace, perforated leather and almost patchwork prints. I really love the above print, used on multiple garments across the collection, a nice choice of colours and a new take on the floral trend.



Most of the imagery used in this post is from Mulberry.com - with no catwalk show, the social media world is a little light on imagery! However i have come across some beautiful shots from the showroom, that really capture the essence of the collection. The setting of the showroom shows the garments in a different light, different angles and textures are seen that aren't as clear on the busy backgrounds in the outfit shots.

Favourite's for me would have to be the patchwork/floral jacket - a great take on a classic piece with a fun print and a modern cut. The floor length lace dress - this dress is so beautiful and the intricate lace detailing is exquisite (i am torn between which i love more, the white or the blue) and finally the white skater style dress with its gorgeous vintage floral print (teamed with the leather perforated top, not sure i would team these two together).

Feeling inspired, ready for the next Spring Summer season - although it is odd thinking ahead to florals and pastel palettes as we head into the Autumn season and are surrounded by the darker shades that come with it.

What do you think to this preview collection?
