We Can't Keep Our Eyes Off This Detail From Mulberry FW17

Why the brand's Surrealist WTF moment was FTW.

share with your friends
Mulberry’s AW17 collection delivered a rich dose of British eccentricity with just a sprinkling of Surrealism, and we’re super into the results (which feel like the hybrid wardrobe of C.S. Lewis and Tilda Swinton. We can dream). Designer Johnny Coca has been at the helm of the British heritage brand since last spring and cited, “hunting parties, dressage uniforms, stately homes, chandeliers, British flowers, countryside animals, grandmother’s attics, heirloom jewellery, the aristocracy [and] rural country hotel interiors” – among other splendors – as his sources of inspiration. 

Interwoven in the sea of tweed and tawny plaids on the runway, one detail in particular caught our eye and captured our hearts: amid the whole Canterville Ghost, old-money, hunting weekend aesthetic, there was also the occasional addition of a painted eye on a handbag (#FornasettiFeels), or the subtle embellishment of a painted ear on a choker. It was the touch of Salvador Dali we didn’t know we needed, and, now, can’t wait to get more of.
