    Our first thought upon entering Claridge’s hallowed hallway, bedecked with floral bouquets the size of a standard studio apartment, was: “Did we not get the memo about bringing a dog?” As is the case with a Mulberry show, pooches of all shapes and sizes were lolling around the exquisite tea parlour, while fashion’s finest tucked into cucumber sandwiches and the odd A-list celeb sauntered by (hello, Rebecca Hall). If you’ve ever wanted to live in a grand ol' pile like Downton, then the runway would have tickled your fancy, as the entrance to the catwalk was covered by a façade of a grand English country house.

    Cara Delevingne opened the show with Madness’s "Our House" blaring out through the speakers, introducing the show’s central theme – clean, relaxed minimalism —in a cream, textured shift dress that loosely emphasized her frame. It was this relaxed silhouette that quickly became familiar as model upon model walked the runway in A-line skirts, wide leg culottes, and shift tops in monochromatic hues with occasional blasts of orange for good measure. Apart from one false start (a grumpy bulldog refusing to keep moving, mid-runway), creative director Emma Hill’s last show was a veritable success and we’re fairly certain the nippy little envelope clutch bags will be on every wish list come spring. All in all, it was a collection that was easy to love, and we easily see how it could be assimilated into our wardrobes. Roll on spring, we're ready for you.
