Catwalk Review: Mulberry A/W 2011/12

17/03/2011 19:32 | Updated 22 May 2015

DESIGNER: Mulberry creative director Emma Hill

INSPIRATION: Roald Dahl's Fantastic Mr Fox

THE SETTING: Claridge's Ball Room had been given a countryside makeover, complete with giant toadstools, woodland birds and a garden shed

WHO WAS THERE: Was this the starriest front row of London Fashion Week so far? Quite possibly, with Hollywood starlet Kirsten Dunst cosying up with British A-listers Rosamund Pike, Rebecca Hall, Gemma Arterton and Nicholas Holt, all in head-to-toe Mulberry.

THE ACCESSORIES: Mulberry bags 'the colour of polished conkers'* (*description shamlessly stolen from someone on Twitter), wedge-heeled 'Tillie' ankle boots and, the ultimate accessory, handbag-sized dogs, both on the front row and the runway.

WHAT WE THOUGHT: News broke this week that Mulberry's annual pre-tax profits are 207% up. When covetable collections like this are on offer, that's no big surprise. From gorgeous gold plisse gowns, to school-girl, knee-high socks worn with culottes, somehow everything appeared instantly on-the-money. For an instant Mulberry cool injection, snap up an oversized scarf and pair with floaty printed maxi - who says you need to wait until autumn to be inspired by this week's collections?
