Archetypes of Englishness inspire the Mulberry Spring Summer ‘18 collection - Edwardiana, Ascot Ladies’ Day, garden parties, the great tradition of tea in fine bone china. Pastimes from another time, to inspire a collection for the present.
Key patterns are drawn from the painted florals that adorn English china services, and the classic multi-coloured stripes of seaside deckchairs in a colour palette of faded blush, antique blue, dusty yellow and a vibrant field green. Two seemingly contradictory prints - bold geometrics and extravagant foliage - join forces under the umbrella of Mulberry’s signature take on English eccentricity.
It’s about British culture, English culture, I’ve visited houses in England with walls of antique porcelain objects. They represent a heritage, something that you can pass down, and something for the next generation to make their own.
