LFW favourites: the “berries”

19/09/2013

Mulberry Spring/Summer 2013 & Burberry Prorsum Spring/Summer 2013 collection /  Best collections London Fashion Week September 2013
Two berries for my fashion basket, please. Mulberry and Burberry will do nicely. My two favourite collection this season chosen for their romantic appeal and beautiful craftsmanship.

While the Burberry Prorsum was like a box of sweet and dainty macaroons, the Mulberry stole my heart with the girlish charm for the grown-ups, the white looks, the English bulldog (I did miss Max, the poodle, though!) and new handbags in delicious pastels. It felt emotional seeing Emma Hill appearing on a catwalk at the end of the show for her final bow – she will be missed and remembered for the designer really took the brand to another fashion galaxy. Whoever comes next will have a tough job fitting her shoes.

And how I wish I could ever get a chance to see the Burberry show in person. It was so sensual and full of floral charms just like the rose petals that covered the ground. The head-to-toe lace, the softly swinging cashmere cardigans and coats, the draped skirts and the bows on the back of the sweaters, the magical rose petal rain… They were dreamy. I watched the live stream, of course – I wouldn’t miss it for the world, but on the back of my mind I kept thinking of getting an opportunity to inhale that air, absorb the atmosphere and see the textures of the materials and details. Wouldn’t it be wonderful?

  2. I loved Burberry once again for the perfect coats. That relaxed fit is so chic and the colour palette gorgeous, from pink to white. And the grey sweaters (that bow detail on the back) and the white brimmed sunglasses, all so classic and so covetable.

  3. I totally agree with you, the two "berries" nailed the collections. I was truly stunned by their work, especially Burberry which every season is surprising me more and more! Both collections got fab colors, pure and soft. The bulldog at the Mulberry show is so sweet! I wish I could see both runways from real too!:) Have a good day Natalia! xo

  20. Natalia, you described the Mulberry collection beautifully: I love the 'grown up' vibe of these pretty creations and indeed I'm very curious to see what happens to this label and - especially - what Emma Hill will do next! Caterina
