Mulberry SS18 - Show Report & Wishlist

Mulberry SS18

Mulberry appears to be doing its own thing this fashion week - everyone else is showcasing Fall/Winter 18, but the British heritage brand has chosen to unveil SS18 instead, with a see now, buy now opportunity, with the collection available online straight after the show had finished #Beyondheritage.

Colour Palette: A very wide array of colours in the collection this season - dusty yellow, mustard, vibrant field green, faded blush, fuschia, red, cobalt and antique blue - all the colours of the rainbow!

The Finer Details: Frills and ruffles across clothing and as detailing on bags, chunky gold hardware, flowing fabrics, sequins, statement jewelled embellishments, clashing deck chair stripes, slouchy silhouetes, English ditsy florals, polka dots and very bold clashing colour combos. One element i did not like was the very odd head gear that the models were wearing..half were wearing what looked like oversized quality street wrappers, the other in huge flying saucers! Very bizarre.

An odd collection overall, but the best i have seen from Johnny Coca so far. Whilst i am still not sure about the clothing side of the collection, there were some beautiful fabrics and prints used but in odd clashing combinations. The handbags however were up to the brands usual standard, made from luxurious leathers in a rainbow of colours with new "families" emerging from the popular Amberley satchel - the Seaton & Marloes to name two, all featuring the new iconic lock detail. Although the collection wasn't entirely my cup of tea, there were as usual a few pieces that caught my eye and that i would love to add to my wardrobe, mainly bags as that is what i associate with the Mulberry brand but this season two items of clothing have snuck on my wishlist...

Watch the show below.....


The one thing i am really dissapointed about, is the price of this collection. While i am under no illusion that for most of us a Mulberry handbag is an investment piece that requires saving for, i thought the brand was trying to bring down price points to make it more accessible but that does not appear to be the case. Most of the new bags are over £1000 and that really puts me off, don't get me wrong anything above £50 is a lot but four figures for a bag, even one hand crafted in Britian.....where's my lottery ticket!

What did you think of the collection? What was your favourite piece?
