Created by the super skillful design team at Mulberry, the British label went back to its roots with nature-inspired patterns and classic tailored looks for its Cruise 2014/15 collection

A feminine breeze brushed through Mulberry's cruise collection yesterday, as looks inspired by the lush foliage and opulent Victorian glass houses of London's Kew Gardens, were debuted. 

The head of womenswear Francis Stringer noted, "In the absence of a creative director, we wanted to keep it really British.", with an outcome that resulted in trench coats and pant suits adorned in prints that ranged from abstract, hand-drawn leaves to a geometric design that resembled wicker.

The patterns were worked into relaxed silhouettes that had a 1970s feel  such as a chiffon, drop-waisted shirtdress, a tailored mid-thigh coat in yellow wool silk and a printed, khaki-green flared skirt.   

"Mulberry's girl is in a carefree upbeat mood, wafting her way through an English country garden," stated the brand about their latest creations. 

The inspired decade also came through in the form of a new accessory, the 'Darcie' bag — a small leather shoulder piece inspired by vintage camera cases.
