It seems that everyone has already blogged about the couture shows and no matter what I write, you will have read it many times before. To save you some time, I will just post a few of my personal favourites. Surprisingly enough, I didn't really enjoy Chanel. I usually find Karl Lagerfeld's work fascinating, especially his couture work, but I found it a bit disappointing this time. I cannot quite point out what it was, but it just didn't do anything for me. Instead, here are the looks that really caught my eye this season .
If you follow me on Twitter, you know that I am now officially a university graduate. I wanted to get myself something to celebrate and is there any better way to end a year in England than to treat yourself to some Mulberry goodies? I don't think so! It just happened that the factory shop was on my way and after reading about it online, I was more than curious to check what it was about. They actually had a lot of stock, including some past season items, but also some more recent ones although they didn't have any Tillie for me to grab. Smaller items were up to 30% off, whereas bags were about 15% off. The only thing that was heavily discounted was the damaged section, but unfortunately nothing really caught my eye. I would still recommend you go, if only to get some delicious cake from their cute little café.
.Emma Hill sure knows what we want to be wearing this summer : girly dresses, flowers, bright pink and light denim. This collection ticks all the boxes. It is fun and fresh, but still has this Mulberry signature look to it. The three new handbags for this season - Effie, Harriet and Evelina - are the perfect arm candy and are sure to be seen on the likes of Sienna Miller or Alexa Chung in absolutely no time.
You can see the whole collection here. I don't know about you, but I absolutely love it!
If I was to write about Beach Break festival, I'd just say it was amazing. I had the best time with my friends, laughing, enjoying the music, the sun, the food, the drinks, and the whole atmosphere. If you are interested in seeing what I wore, there will be another post on that soon, but for now I'll just leave you to enjoy Beach Break Live 2011 through my lens.
