SEEN at the catwalk for LFW16: Mulberry SS17

Mulberry presented its SS17 LFW catwalk show on 18th September at a warehouse space in London’s docklands.

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.

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.
