Mulberry Gives Classic Staples a Cute and Cozy Twist for Pre-Fall

As Iconic Creative Director, Emma Hill, (who by the way helped give the House of Mulberry a name), departed Mulberry. The first collection without the designer at the brand gave Classic staples a Cute and Cozy twist. The importance of outerwear was shown, as puffy coats get a trench inspired silhouette and are finished off with a cute little bow. The bow, itself, seen a lot throughout the collection, as the bow is also seen on Pea Green draping silk tops, paired with a Classic black suit or pencil skirt. And even giving a blouse in a horiziontally striped print, usually seen on your traditional menswear button-down, a cute and feminine twist. While a tan jumpsuit with paisleys embroidered all over it; makes me reminscene the days when Emma Hill reigned at Mulberry.
