Bonkers indeed. But the reigning dictum at Mulberry is cute, and once the incidental oddities are stripped away, the offerings are mostly just that. A new mac comes in a shortened, car-coat length with elasticized cuffs, and little day dresses in black broderie anglaise pick up the crafty vibe we've seen elsewhere this season. A-line skirts (in button-front and elastic-waist versions), cotton tweeds, and plenty of light denim round out the seasonal offering. It's a little tough to imagine Mulberry becoming the go-to denim destination, but there's no denying it sets the bags off nicely. They're what really make the girls go googly, anyway. This season, the object of their affection will likely be the slouchy, metal-handled Evelina, in hobo or satchel form. Want one? Get your ass in gear.
