Mulberry Designer: Emma Hill

  • "British luxury brand Mulberry has ditched most of the playfulness in its recent seasons, showcasing a spring collection that’s still quirky but definitely grown-up." {The Associated Press}
  • "Awash in muted neutrals with flashes of sapphire, orange, and mint." {Daily Front Row}
  • "The new Mulberry bag buzz words are ‘timeless’, ‘elegant’ and ‘practical’. ... But it wasn’t just the bags that really hit the mark this season. The clothes, ‘soft and hard’, said Hill, looked incredibly fresh, easy and modern." {ELLEuk.com}
  • "It's hard not to call a collection inspired by ice pops sweet, and Emma Hill's Spring 2013 offering for Mulberry--what with its buttery leather, pastel-colored garments, and floral prints--definitely fits that sugary description." {fashionologie}
  • "A stroll through a fragrant country garden with gently nodding daisies woven into lace dresses in sherbet shades of apricot and mint." {

    The Independent}

  • "For Mulberry, fashion is still in the bags--big, bold, colorful, imaginative and practical. It is not that they steal the show. (That place is reserved for the dressy poodles mincing down the runway in pooch peacoats and collars.)" {International Herald Tribune}
  • "We’ll be honest: The gnomes had us scared. ... However, we needn’t have worried. Though Emma Hill’s latest offering did include a gecko print (which was more subtle than it sounds thanks to the additions of hammered silk, florals, crepe de chine, and jacquard), the gnomes were simply a tongue-in-cheek nod to the garden theme." {Refinery29}
  • "Finding fault with Mulberry's sweetsiness is like getting mad at a cupcake." {Style.com}
  • "What was really interesting was the sea change in the look of the bag ... bags more suggestive of a woman with an expensive sports car driving to Monte Carlo than a girl with a beat-up Mini on her way to Glasto." {Vogue.com}
  • "Where this season other labels have gone sweet to the point of sickly (sometimes in a good way, sometimes in a bad way and sometimes somewhere in between), Mulberry--with that cool Seventies undertone--kept it cool and casual." {Vogue.com UK}
  • "You’re never fully dressed without a smile--or an ice lolly. Just ask Emma Hill." {WWD}
