Oooh look what just landed in my inbox… the first images of Mulberry‘s new Spring Summer ’12 pre-collection! Yeah, you read that right! Can you believe it? This summer is barely here and we’re already on to the next! I’m loving this collection, which took its inspiration from the great British seaside, those wonderful memories you have of childhood holidays at the coast. There’s plenty of retro prints, a nostalgic look back at the Brownies and Scouts uniforms and a little bit of camping thrown in for good measure. Super-washed denim, pop socks and cheeky sweatshirts will bring you right back to the Eighties.
In terms of bags, the Alexa is back for another season (with new textures), and two new bags make their debut, the slouchy Evelina and roomy Effie tote. I’m loving the shoes as well – which apparently come with built-in gel pads, hurrah! The pooches haven’t been forgotten either, and will get donkey motif hoodies and t-shirts to match their fashionista mommies.
I can’t help but be reminded of the different high school cliques with these pictures (at the coolest school ever, of course…) So which one will you be? The Rock Chicks? The Plastics? The Hippies? The Preps?
