While Mulberry's Fall 2012 collection captured the ethereal wildness (and weirdness) of Spike Jonze's film adaptation of the children's book Where the Wild Things Are, the brand's Spring 2013 show captured the ethereal prettiness (and weirdness) of the English country garden. Exhibit A: The scenery included astro-turf and gnomes—that's right, gnomes.
As for the clothes, they followed up the theme by making pants, tops, and coats that walk the line between extra sweet and extra cool. The fabric was shiny when it wasn't buttery leather that harkened back to the '70s, the print was flowery, and the color was a sumptuous gradation from caramel to taupe with spots of soft pink and sea-foam green. We just wanted to lay down in it and sun ourselves for a hot minute. Check out the collection after the jump.
