It was madness at Mulberry from Refresher-stripe maxi dresses to cropped, cape back sou’westers and a bonkers seaside theme complete with sticks of Mulberry rock [delicious by the way]. But the sartorial note I took was that Kate Moss was wearing a Fedora front row. And so too was uber fashion blogger Anna dello Russo. And I thought we’d finished with those last season!
Now I know I was able to exclusively bring you the scoop of Tom Ford’s uber private debut show last February. This season however, he had me sign a confidentiality agreement. But I’m sure he wouldn’t mind me sharing with you his catwalk tunes especially as two of them are favourites of mine: Unfinished Sympathy by Massive Attack and You’ll Be Mine by NY sister duo The Pierces.
But sighting of the day must go to Naomi Campbell who was looking happy in a relaxed in a foxy bodcon McQueen dress and oversized sunnnies. And not a sign of a tantrum.
This is fashion darling, reporting from fashion’s front line, Somerset House, London WC2.
What are you supposed to do when you have some of the biggest shows back-to-back on one day like today? Easy. Wear really high heels, have another sugar and lemon pancake from the fabulous Creperie caravan outside the show venue and enjoy.
Celebrity best friends played fashion swappies for each other again today. Sienna Miller graced her mate Matthew Williamson’s front row along with the uber-chic Olivia Palermo of TV show the City. His show had a very grown-up New York ladylike look with sophisticated greys and burnt yellow shades and a glorious lavalike purple, blue, yellow and white print dress. Williamson then turned up to support Sienna and her sister Savannah at their boho-meets-classic Twenty8Twelve show. Get it? And Naomi Campbell returned the fashion favour and supported Vivienne Westwood’s fabulous urban-dandy Red Label show sitting front row with Kate Moss and Janet Jackson.
My favourite look: a tweed asymmetric red tartan pencil skirt with off the shoulder lurex top, knitted legwarmers with pompoms over tights and Marie-Antoinette hair. It’s all about leg accessories this season clearly. The king of bling, Julien Macdonald, sporting wedge boots (!), returned to his sexy signature knitwear roots via Jilly Coopers book Riding. His girls were ones who went from frolicking in the paddock to a frolicking about on a naughty night out in a sugarspun lace and knit mix cobweb dress in black and nude that looked like a negligee. As well as a floorlength black gown with fine lace insets on the bodice. I got to wear my glitter cat’s mask – the invitation to the Mulberry party, after their fabulous leopard -print-dosed -in-glitter inspired show. Next season it’s all about the Greta and the Edna when it comes to handbags!
