The fascination with English tea party fashion carries on as inspiration for designers, but none can quite restore its timeless appeal as Mulberry does. At the spring summer 2018 show, Mulberry marked the season with a ‘Beyond Heritage’ collection theme, think aristocratic pastimes of Edwardiana, Ascot Ladies’ Day and garden parties, with bold and colourful palettes flecked upon frills, materials and silhouettes that served as traditional fashion codes. Once more, the Mulberry spring/summer 2018 collection suggested the manifold ways classic English styles – apparel and accessories – is still very much a modern muse.
A floral satchel
A floral print that never gets old – Mulberry’s signature Amberley satchel comes in a spring revival, with flower embroidery upon black small grain leather. A fresh yet aristocratic colour palette, this equestrian styled bag is vivaciously girly.
Every work bag needs a bit of shaking up, now and then. This Mini Seaton features diagonal stripes of leather textures in pastel, permeating structured sleek lines for functional day-to-evening wear.
