A number of seasons ago the embellished motif trend was a fixture on all the runways—with decadent embroidered facades and layers of sumptuous textiles alluding to an indulgent world of leisure and affluence. This was followed by a more austere minimalist approach seen throughout the fashion world and which now seems to be giving way to a trend that is allowing for a bit more detail and flourish. Mulberry’s Winter/Fall collection for 2015 is embracing this trend with an overtly opulent intent. Creative director Emma Hill left the brand a little over a year ago with new creative director Johnny Coca taking over in July. The brand may have been with out a creative head for a number of months but that did not stop the house design team from creating a swoon worthy collection. Citing Georgian interiors with their elegance, openness and Rococo and neoclassical architectural influences, the Fall 2015 lineup epitomizes this artisan approach to life. From an intarsia double faced sheepskin checkered print coat with contrasting calf hair, to a cream colored boucle coat with a luxurious embroidered artisan patterned motif, to a pink and black wool mini dress with an over-sized architectural print, to an intricately printed jumpsuit in the same artisan motif seen in a number of other pieces, to woven jacquard dresses and luxurious tweed like jumpsuits, to a gray leather two piece cape top and skirt the pieces in this lineup are a memorable statement of classic elegance. The palette is a subdued combination of pale pinks and grays to soft ivory, rich black, deep navy, with the occasional appearance of burgundy, rust and coral. Together the over-all effective is sophisticated, demure, and understatedly arresting.
