I'm not sure I will ever be able to find the words to describe how much I love these two collections. As always with fashion week, I was eagerly looking forward to both the 'Berries' of fashion. They are always my ones to watch, and they did not disappoint this season, which is extra special because I have found the s/s shows this year to be rather hit and miss so far. (The biggest misses of all being Prada, Gucci and Just Cavalli.....can we even class the Cavalli show as fashion?)
Pastels for spring. I usually have a little eye roll when I hear that statement because let's face it, pastel colours are a bit cliche and predictable for the spring time. However, Burberry came and whacked that eye roll right off of my face. The pastels were still clinging on to the winter trends in the forms of oversize coats and midi skirts yet spring was creeping in through sheer fabrics. I've never been a fan of the pastel craze but Burberry might have just convinced me the other way.
As for Mulberry, I am preparing for some serious monochrome...again. Across the board of the fashion weeks so far 'head to toe in white' has been a recurring trend. I, being a lover of 'head to toe in black', am very excited to try some white next year. I have always loved it but quite frankly I get scared of getting it dirty. Mulberry also had an androgynous flare sprinkled over the collection; a lot of over sized shirts and suitish combos. Cara's short suit at the end was simply gorgeous. Muted colours and androgyny...bring on spring.
