AW12 Campaign: The Mulberry Forest Fairytale

AW12Mulberry4 AW12 Campaign: The Mulberry Forest Fairytale %tag

There is always something magical about Mulberry’s vision, whether it is for a celeb-studded party, a catwalk show, or a retail window display, the British brand under the helm of Emma Hill seems to just push the limit every season. For autumn/winter 2012, it seems that the Mulberry has captured the magic of the collection, which was inspired by the fantastical ‘Where the Wild Things Are’ perfectly with the help of its two giant furry beasts with claws to appear alongside model Lindsey Wixson.

Shot by Tim Walker in Blackheath Forest in Surrey, which I so need to visit doesn’t it look magical, I love that it has a Brother’s Grim meets Big Foot vibe about it that works perfectly against the gorgeous tailored, layered and textured collection. The lace and the tweed seriously pops against the trees and the claws.

All the shots are incredible, as are the bags I love them all from the Del Rey in Ostrich in the top shot to the  gorgeous embellished Alexa bag *second to last* and the divine new tweed Lily Shoulder with Chain Handle in the final image.

But  my favourite shot has to be Lindsay in orange or should I say flame as Mulberry have called it, she looks insane in that lace top and flared skirt, plus her arm candy is the new Maisie, I have to admit I did swoon slightly at the sight of this bag so wish I could add this to my collection of bags!!!

One thing I have to ask though – does the forest fairytale top the seaside shoot from spring/summer 2012?

Coachella Festival: Mulberry Hosts A-List Barbecue

MulberryCoachella1 Coachella Festival: Mulberry Hosts A List Barbecue  %tag

If like me you’ve been slightly avoiding some tweeters this weekend so not to see how much fun they are having at the Coachella Festival then I warn you look away now, as pictures from Mulberry’s barbecue and pool party hit my inbox over night and it looked amazing.

Yesterday the brand’s Creative Director Emma Hill and her giant monsters took over the Gene Autry House pool at The Parker hotel, in Palm Springs, and hosted a little R&R for some of its a-list pals and referenced the brand’s autumn/winter 2012 collection of mysterious monsters to create the perfect setting of sunbeds featuring the Mulberry monster fur print towels, monster cushions, and even giant monster lilos to relax in the pool.

Basically, the Mulberry monster invaded Coachella and served up BBQ kebabs and  lemonade popsicles to the likes of Emma Watson, Lily Collins and Kate Bosworth, and if that wasn’t enough they even got to wear prieces from the brand’s spring/summer and autumn/winter 2012 collections – think lots of animal prints, studs, and tassels.

Who: Emma Watson

Wearing: A Mulberry fuzzy tiger playsuit from the autumn/winter 2012 collection, teamed with a  black cardigan, belt, floppy hat, a Mulberry Mini Lily with Tassels in Oak from also from the autumn/winter 2012 collection, and gladiator-style flats

Verdict: This is a cute and pool party appropriate look from Emma and my best dressed Mulberry look, see Dree Hemingway at the bottom of the post in Dolce & Gabbana for my best overall look.

I am loving this playful look on her, sometimes I find Emma can be a little too serious in her style, which don’t get me wrong is generally impeccable, but I am loving that she is having a little fun with the animal print. I also love how she made the look her own with the addition of the belt, and that 70’s style hat. Also the tan version of the Mini Lily has so been added to my wish list – love that little beauty.

Who: Kate Bosworth

Wearing: A Mulberry fuzzy tiger scoop neck tee in acorn, teamed with studded black shorts, Mulberry black studded sneakers, and finishing off her look is a Mulberry Mini Lily with Tassels in Ink Blue, all from the autumn/winter 2012 collection

Verdict: Can Kate be any more cooler if she tried, I am loving her sexy casual vibe in these tiny studded shorts, which works perfectly with the animal print tee and those hot Mulberry sneakers. I also need to find out where her bright fish earrings are from as I am loving them!!!

Who: Actress of the moment Lily Collins

Wearing: A pale blue stripy straws Neely Mulberry dress, teamed with summer khaki stitched bow ballerina flats, both from the spring/summer 2012 collection, and completing her look is the ink blue Mulberry Lily with Tassels from the autumn/winter 2012 collection

Verdict: This was nearly my best dressed, I love the printed dress, the bag and her fresh face, but I am just not as sold on her shoes. Don’t get me wrong they work perfectly with the look, I am just not loving them, I much prefer the cross strap flats that she is wearing below with Kate.

Who: Dree Hemingway

Wearing: A Dolce & Gabbana chilli pepper-print cotton bustier and skirt from the spring/summer 2012 collection, teamed with very high platform heels

Verdict: Out of all the models who attended the party, which also included Arizona Muse, Tali Lennox, and Cara Delveigne, Dree really captured my attention in this very summery Dolce & Gabbana catwalk look. I am loving that she teamed it with hot red lips – LOVE!!!

So who gets your best dressed vote?

Last week I shared with you a few scans of the spring/summer 2012 Mulberry campaign that I took from a few magazines, well today Mulberry released the full campaign and OMG I just love the ice cream cone shots.

I actually love this retro summer scene shot by Tim Walker and styled by Edward Enninful so much that I wish for the first time that advertising campaigns were made into posters. I can just see these images looking fabulous on the my bright yellow walls!!!

One thing, what happened to Lindsey and Frida riding the donkey?ss12Mulberry6 SS12 Campaign: More Seaside Fun From Mulberry %tagss12Mulberry8 SS12 Campaign: More Seaside Fun From Mulberry %tagss12Mulberry1 SS12 Campaign: More Seaside Fun From Mulberry %tagss12Mulberry4 SS12 Campaign: More Seaside Fun From Mulberry %tag
