Mulberry Resort 2012
I had a brunch with a friend from Singapore who’d been to Brighton beach for the first time this week. He said “it had pebbles, I’d never seen that before” – his subtle way of saying “get me out of this place and back to the idyllic white sand and clear blue sea beaches of South-East Asia that I’m used to”. Pebbly beaches, bad weather and a sizeable portion of fish and chips pretty much sum up the British seaside. That is not the case for Mulberry, however, as their Resort 2012 collection takes inspiration from the quintessential 1970s British seaside. The result – cute prints, wearable separates and the perfect denim wash for summer. I want it all.
