Mulberry Spring 2012 Collection: Good Enough to Eat

How far Mulberry has come from their stand-by Bayswater bag! Not only did designer Emma Hill just present an entire ready-to-wear collection in London, turning the Claridge’s Hotel into a festive seaside pier complete with freshly scooped ice cream and puppies parading the runway, the bags were a far cry from their traditional browns and blacks. These pastry-colored bags belong in a decadent bakery! Delicious brights and sweet-as-pie pastels are hardly what I’d associate with the London based-brand but a welcome surprise.

With long tulle skirts sheer enough to still show lots of leg and streaked and dyed hair, in washed-out shades that matched the bags, it remains clear that Mulberry is a brand focused on youth. Sunny, almost-acid yellow and Kelly green top-handles and hobos might be all the jolt of color your wardrobe needs come spring. Creamy pale pinks set off petite structured styles, and glossy black handbags even have a pumped-up feel. The ever-popular Alexa bag is here to stay – she’s just been doused with a generous heaping of confectionary flair.

    The bags that were seen at fashion week in NY were a little disappointing to me. This collection cheers me up immediately. There is hope that my spring bag will be fabulous. I know that we still have the best yet to come…sorry, can’t help it Europeans know their fashion.

  4. love these bags for 2012! so beautiful…
