You’re never fully dressed without a smile — or an ice lolly. Just ask Emma Hill, Mulberry’s creative director, whose lighthearted collection was filled with sugary pastels (one mint tweed coat was a standout), florals and a little gecko print scrambling over long dresses with ruffles around the sleeves.
“It’s a happy brand!” Hill declared after the show, adding that she took her original cue from pastel ice lollies — ice pops, for those who don’t live in the U.K. — English gardens and even the tropics.
That translated into Sixties-inspired flower prints and appliqués for both daywear and eveningwear. Hill also approached accessories with a light touch, creating gold flower-shaped hardware for the buttons on leather coats and the buckles on bags, which came in sweet shades of mint, tangerine and blush.
