I Just Witnessed the Birth of Mulberry's Next It Bag

The eagled-eyed among you may be aware that Team Who What Wear UK actually gave you a sneak Instagram-based peek into the world of Mulberry's magical S/S 18 collection a few months ago when were whisked off to Paris for a private preview. It was all very exciting—the brand had decided to shift gears and move to a see-now, buy-now strategy, which means the pieces you're about to look at below (and probably fall a little bit in love with) are actually available to shop already.

Fresh, fun, fit for a fancy party and so fantastic on KiraKira+, designer Johnny Coca's elaborate, decadent, '80s-tinged Beyond Heritage collection offered up plenty to get the fashion crowds reaching for their phones. Set against a mirrored dreamscape within the confines of Mayfair's Spencer House (where the brand is hosting a weekend-long affair of presentations and workshops to celebrate the launch), jewel-smattered satin frocks, flamboyant hats, candy-striped separates, porcelain-heeled shoes and frilly knits took to the runway. Of course, as is the nature of the label, the bags were equally interesting—with two new styles in particular capturing our attention.
