The inspiration for Emma Hill’s pre-fall collection was the fox. But in one of those quirky twists of fate, what started out as a near-mythic symbol of British rural life on the mood board of Hill’s mind spilled over into real life: Only days before she presented her pre-fall at Milk Studios in New York, the British press were going wild for a tale of the capture of a much-bigger-than-usual urban fox that had been prowling England’s green and pleasant suburban land, eluding capture for months. “I love it!” Hill says. “The majestic fox fights back!” Still, the intrusion of the country in the city is a pretty deft summation of what she is doing with this collection; for every cozy early 1960s-style duffle coat (think Tippi Hedren teaching at an English boarding school) or long striped cardigan over a short hedgerow floral dress, there is an A-line shift banded with opulent and oversize gold paillettes or a strictly belted motocross jacket. “I was thinking loveworn English manor houses—and what girls wear to party in them!” says Hill, laughing. Or, in her case, chortling all the way to the bank, given that Mulberry’s sales continue to spiral upwards, driven by the brand’s success with its accessories. For pre-fall, that means mushroom leather straight-shafted 1970s boots with a gilt ankle-strap chain, or a black satchel with gilded clasps—the Alexa, before its namesake, Alexa Chung, graduated high school. Even dogs get a look in the collection, with Hill knitting up a striped pullover, modeled by not a fox, but a perky miniature schnauzer.
