This iconic British fashion brand, founded in 1971 in Somerset, England, currently has its design studios in London, led by new Creative Director Johnny Coca. For Mulberry’s SS17 collection, this Spanish designer has been inspired by the striped blazer of school uniforms to create a feminine collection with a simple colour palette consisting of tradititional burgundy, navy, olive, powder blue, bright yellows and silvers.

The collection displayed familiar cuts, patterns and colours that were anything but boring: classic Paisley design in crystal beads embroidered on eveningwear and shoes, Prince of Wales checks manufactured in the UK, kilt pin brooches, granny florals, drill jackets, collegiate stripes and asymmetries, which seem to be in trend for next season. For this SS17 collection, Mulberry incorporated Russian stylist Lotta Volkova, whose young and rebelious touch can be especially seen in the silver dresses and the velvets.

One fundamental part of this Mulberry’s SS17 collection are its purses, matched in a number of dyed leathers and suedes. An interesting new addition was a tote with an oversized drawstring, giving the appearance that the leather was snatched together and gathered like a pouch.

Mulberry has a strong heritage in leather goods and creates stylish, functional products for modern lives. Originally a family-run business, today Mulberry is a global brand with 122 stores worldwide and a digital flagship, mulberry.com. Mulberry has two factories in Somerset and is the largest manufacturer of luxury leather goods in the UK.

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?
