These beautiful shots were captured with 30 minutes to go until the show started. See the models in their catwalk looks, and take a closer look at next season’s new accessories.
Autumn Winter 2013 prints stem from iconic roots. English check is key, and uses size and scale to rework classic check patterns in multiple fabrics. Both print and check textures are used to build bold looks. Check is layered on check and print used top to toe to bring new life to classic tailoring and traditional shapes. Layering is an important part of the collection’s story; it gives depth to the print blocked looks, and plays with the design juxtaposition between structured and relaxed styles for new proportions.
Outerwear makes reference to traditional English style with its chic nonchalance, throwing on luxuriously soft, warm and beautifully cut coats to wrap up against the cold. Full bell sleeves add drama to silhouettes, as does sumptuous Toscana sheepskin featured in multi-form on coats and jackets for textural trim.
On the same theme of casual elegance, capes are introduced, cut in signature Mulberry leather, a continued interpretation of our craft heritage. Leather subtly weaves through the rest of the ready-to-wear, on skater skirts and blouses and on long leather gloves with trompe l’oeil detailing.
