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.

Cocktails at the General Store

SEEN is tireless in her cocktail research, and very much enjoyed travelling to Highbury last week to try The General Store’s new summer cocktail menu and to check out the new interior. She was delighted to sample a Honey Mimosa, very sweet and fruity and just the ticket after a hot journey. It was, as its name suggests, a Mimosa with just a touch of honey.

Canaletto: A Drawing Workshop with Alexandra Blum

SEEN has long been an admirer of Alexandra Blum’s liminal and apocalyptic renderings of London’s urban spaces, in which the capital seems ever-changing. It is the artist’s job to capture not only space but the passage of time itself.

Love Hunt at the British Museum

SEEN had the pleasure (pun intended) of being invited to a ‘Love Hunt’ at the British Museum. The museum, founded in 1753, is committed to preserving art, culture and history, and has collected around 8 million objects. These artefacts come from every corner of the world, revealing a fragment of many significant moments in time, from Mesopotamia to the Vikings; from the Inuits to the Indians. So, when one embarks on a visit to the world famous British Museum, where does one start?
