Tuesday evening, “It” bag brand, Mulberry presented its Spring/Summer 2010 collection at the Soho House. Guests walked into a fantasy of candy apples, carousel horses and walls imprinted with the season’s signature “Crazy Horse” print.
What followed were very pretty, feminine takes on a schoolgirl theme, with a decidedly grown up edge. Classic leather jackets and flirty skirts were interpreted in candy floss colors. Oversized bows and darker floral appliques were a tongue in cheek styling detail on traditional ladylike motifs. The vibe was fun, like a rock n’ roll tomboy who wanted to dress up for a day.
The handbags were the stars in this show of course. The famous Mulberry Bayswater bag was re-invented in sugary colors, as well as punk-inspired neon pink haircalf cheetah. A ‘bluberry’ ostrich Hayden shoulder bag, ‘cookie’ leather shoes and ‘gingerbread’ fringed nappa leather Daria satchel were standouts in the sweet-themed collection. The signature mulberry tree logo plate in antiqued brass of ‘glammed up’ for this season in a shiny, oversized nameplate on some purses as well.
