Mulberry A/W 2016

A great British institution; leather experts Mulberry did not disappoint with their Autumn/Winter 2016 catwalk show at London Fashion Week.

A great British institution; leather experts Mulberry did not disappoint with their Autumn/Winter 2016 catwalk show at London Fashion Week.

In newly-appointed Creative Director Johnny Coca’s first collection, the Somerset-based designers paired their visually stunning leather and snakeskin handbags and shoes with a variety of strong, sharp autumnal outfits; the emphasis seemingly placed upon female empowerment, business and professionalism, including oversized overcoats and straight-cut trousers.

The handbags, crafted from calfskin, goatskin and python leather, were presented in a plethora of autumnal colours including mustard yellow and dark burgundy, with leather or chain straps. However, there were also some monochromatic accessories on show, such as the Chester handbag, to contrast the array of seasonal colours displayed in the outfits.

Leather and snakeskin high-heeled platform pumps were the staple footwear of the Mulberry catwalk show at LFW. They featured track studs and double straps and were presented in bold and striking colours, such as emerald green and ochre, which are synonymous with autumn and winter.

The Castle at the Space: SEEN Reviews

SEEN was not that familiar with the work of Howard Barker prior to seeing ‘The Castle’ but feels she must rectify that situation. A powerful piece on the nature of masculinity, war, gender roles and the essential unreliability of religious faith, ‘The Castle’ benefits from a powerhouse cast and a stripped-back set, making the most of the Space’s environment.
