Mulberry SS 2014 – Emma Hill’s final show as creative director for Mulberry combined everything we’ve loved about her design aesthetic for the Spring 2014 Collection. The looks were girlish and ladylike with excellent use of prints, as always.
Other fabrics, while still slightly loose and away from the body, revealed the figure in a very sophisticated, feminine way. There were wide horizontal tone-on-tone stripes achieved with different textures like sheer panels and leather. Overall silhouettes were very sculptural with quite beautiful lines.
The other major print was much more colorful and pop-art inspired. A red, coral, orange, black floral started out rather abstract but came together with big bold flowers on some pieces. The requisite all-white looks for Spring 2014 were rendered successfully here as well. The looks were a bit “the daughters of the ladies who lunch.”
