Luxury brand Mulberry brings quirky 70s English seaside holiday vibe to London Fashion Week
LONDON (AP) ' Luxury English brand Mulberry has brought nostalgic seaside holiday memories to London Fashion Week with giant ice-cream cones, hundreds of animal balloons, and a catwalk awash with candy colors.
Creative director Emma Hill says the retro collection of sporty and practical clothes ' macs, windbreakers, hoodies and shorts ' was inspired by her own childhood family vacations to the seaside.
Some models walked with a mini schnauzer on a leash instead of a handbag, adding to the festive and whimsical atmosphere.
The brand, best known for its luxury bags, paired the relaxed clothes with its signature styles in neon-yellow patent leather and animal prints.
Model Kate Moss and "Twilight" actress Kristen Stewart were among the celebrities in the front row at Sunday's show.
