On Tuesday, I went to Claridge's for one of my favourite fashion events, the Mulberry show. As soon as I arrived there was a prominent theme - colour! The colour palette was beautiful pastels and sorbets right from the clothes to the rainbow cake they gave us upon arrival. Creative director Emma Hill said that the show was a 'blend of Mulberry's English country heritage with a sorbet summer palette.' The colourful collection featured beautiful reinterpreted classic tailoring and Seventies-inspired detailing. I loved the setting as well, the runway was decorated with colour flowers, gnomes everywhere, Mulberry trees lining the catwalk and there were geckos in the branches - which were seen printed on the seasonal clothing too and there was grass on the floor as you walked in!
As usual there was an array of beautiful and stylish faces on the front row. These girls are my particular favourites...
And of course another front row regular - Olivia Palermo! She was holding the Mini Flower Alexa bag
Jessica Ennis was there too, there was a strong Olympian presence across many of the shows. She was carrying the Bayswater in Sycamore
Kate Moss and Alexa Chung sitting on the front row
Here are some of my favourite looks, as you can see there was such a gorgeous pastel colour palette, but then also sophisticated black featured as well. I love how Mulberry bring dogs out on the runway too. I just thought the whole Mulberry image was so summery, wholesome, pretty and truly British as well.
The hair and make-up was so so so gorgeous. As seen with a lot of shows, the skin was natural looking and flawless with a small amount of peachy blush and contour and a pretty pink colour on the lips. Highlighting was important too and the skin looked sun kissed and dewy. However the eyes were defined by a thick flick of black liner which I thought was a really feminine touch, the flick was soft and not ending on a sharp point which added to the whole theme of a soft and delicate collection. I love the idea of the Mulberry girl not being perfect and this was seen in the beautiful hair styles which had a messy edge. The hair was a loose beachy braided chignon that had an undone feel and the girls wore their hair on a low side parting, I just absolutely loved and will be recreating it!
Hope you enjoyed reading guys, I just love all the looks and the pictures above from the make-up to the bags to the decor to the clothes and everything in between! Thank you Mulberry for another amazing show.
I was lucky enough to go to the Burberry show on Monday as well as
Mulberry. The show always takes place in a huge space in Kensington
Gardens in west London. I went backstage too to see all the latest hair and make-up trends! Makeup artist Wendy Rowe went for quite a different Burberry look this year by making the make-up all about a red lip. They used a new lipstick called Siren Red launching later this year and heavily applied it to the middle of the lips with less at the outer corner. The lip was inspired by the strong, feminine attitude of this years Burberry girl. The skin was radiant and defined by contoured cheekbones and the eyes were left bare apart from a small amount of brown shadow swept through the socket. Most of the girls' brows were amazing and full but the were filled in slightly to accentuate them!
The show itself was totally star studded, I saw so many people! Harry Styles, Andy Murray, Anna Wintour, Dita Von Teese just to name a few! The collection was really bright and vibrant with lots of texture and diversity and as usual at Burberry, the soundtrack was amazing. I vlogged my afternoon at Burberry so please check out the video, I will pop a link below. I also did a quick Q&A with one of my all time favourite models, the lovely Cara Delevigne!
