    We’ll be honest: The gnomes had us scared. The entryway to Mulberry’s spring '13 show, which was located, per usual, in the ballroom of Claridge’s, was flanked by plastic gnomes — some little, some giant, all pastel-colored. However, we needn’t have worried. Though Emma Hill’s latest offering did include a gecko print (which was more subtle than it sounds thanks to the additions of hammered silk, florals, crepe de chine, and jacquard), the gnomes were simply a tongue-in-cheek nod to the garden theme.

    As Kate Moss, Olivia Palermo, Downton Abbey’s Elizabeth McGovern, and handbag honorees Lana Del Rey and Alexa Chung looked on from the front row, supple biscuit-brown nappa leather capes, cargo trousers, skirts, shirt dresses, and sweatshirts paraded down the runway. Floral-print accents — including sandals, booties, belts, and jackets — softened the look, as did the aforementioned gecko print, which graced both a willowy, hammered-silk dress with pleats running down the sides and an Alexa bag in jacquard.

    While floral lace in spring-perfect shades of apricot and mint, floral-embroidered jumpers, slinky, printed jumpsuits, and feminine frilly dresses with pleated ruffle details were in keeping with the label’s West London gal aesthetic, there were sharper looks, as well.

    A black wool tuxedo toward the end seemed to especially catch Moss’ eye, while navy-washed canvas army coats and gecko-print leather bikers also supplied some edge.

    Of course, it wouldn’t be a spring '13 LFW show without a dash of sparkle, and in this case, it was supplied by reptile gowns in nude and navy sequins. With "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life” bringing the show to a close, that final shot of shine had us feeling like that wouldn’t be such a difficult task at all.
