Think pink

Ah pink! The colour of rose petals and sunsets and healthy flushed cheeks, and traditionally, the colour most associated with young girls. Furthermore, as decreed by Vogue’s AW13 trend guide (aka the fashion bible) head-to-toe pink is this season’s top trend, with Lanvin, Celine, Mulberry and Dior all opting for rosy hues in their catwalk collections.

Vogue Autumn/Winter 2013 catwalk edit (August issue)

Supremely feminine and particularly striking on blondes, this season’s top garments include oversized outerwear, 60s inspired skirt suits and slinky silk dresses. The high street has been quick to pick up on the trend with Oasis, Jaeger and Marks & Spencer all producing baby pink cocoon coats ready for the autumn chill.

Cara bags Mulberry campaign

British brand Mulberry has just unveiled its a/w 2013 campaign, fronted by the face to feature this season, model Cara Delevingne. A hit both on & off the catwalks, Cara is renowned for her Instagram gurning, beanie hats, inimitable style & partying with bezzies Rita Ora & Rihanna.

Shot by the supremely talented Mulberry favourite Tim Walker – purveyor of abstract magical scenes – the campaign features Cara in an Oxfordshire manor surrounded by nocturnal owls. British, beautiful and quirky, with a delicious dark side, this is a perfect pairing for Mulberry. Surely a namesake bag is on the horizon…
