Mulberry was definitely in a Florence and the Machine mood this afternoon when it sent banged, red-wigged models down a makeshift runway surrounding the Soho House's rooftop pool. The singer herself, Florence Welch, was seated in the front row two seats down from Alexa Chung and seemed to be taken quite by surprise at the hair homage. It was yet another Mulberry collection in which the shoes and bags took center stage — they had variations on their popular Bayswater and Alexa bags in new colors and snake prints.
There were 36 looks in shades of purple, apricot, and blue, many featuring textured floral details and even one dress constructed entirely of bows. There were jackets perfect for a rainy London afternoon, as well as a variety of simple party dresses. Designer Emma Hill popped out for a wave afterward wearing a sweatshirt that said simply "New York." The show was timed to coincide with the opening of the house's first Big Apple showroom, which officially opens its doors tomorrow.
