It may be winter outside, but in fashion land it’s well and truly springtime. Magazines, blogs, shops… everywhere we look there are bright colours, vibrant patterns and mouthwatering images of glossy-limbed models heralding the arrival of the SS12. You know when you look at a collection and feel as though every single garment was simply made for you? Well that’s exactly how I felt about the delights Mulberry offered us last season and seeing their SS12 fare has only served to confirm my suspicions that Emma Hill designs with me in mind. I suspect I’m probably not the only person who feels this way but isn’t it just the BEST excuse for a splurge?
Like most people who grew up in England, I have bittersweet memories about childhood trips to the seaside. In theory it’s all ice creams, fun fair rides and burying your younger siblings in the sand. In practice it will most probably rain and nowhere in the world kicks off a family arguement quite like a British Beach. But looking at these stunning shots my miserable memories of ice cream-induced car sickness and brawling with my little brother simply fade away. If we all looked as glam as Lindsay Wixen and Frida Gustavsson during our seaside trips they probably would have been a tad more enjoyable, don’t you think?
