Fashion gets foxy: How to make your own Mulberry fox mask

March 1, 2011 § 2 Comments

I am definitely not the most chic person in the world – I can’t walk in heels, hair accessories scare me and I’d rather wear a fleece than Fendi. But even I want to wax lyrical about Mulberry’s new fashionable take on the outdoors, as seen in their Autumn/Winter 2011 collection at London Fashion Week.

Creative director Emma Hill had clearly been reading Roald Dahl’s Fantastic Mr Fox. Nature motifs such as hedgerows, toadstools and wooden park benches were dotted around the room, the soundtrack played tweeting birds and the collection had a distinctive walk-in-the-country feel. If walks in the country were incredibly high fashion, of course. Hill even quoted “The English countryside, English wildlife and Turner landscapes” as her three inspirations for the collection – looks like anoraks and waterproofs are out.

The best part of the Mulberry show was universally declared to be the goodie bag, which included fox shaped cookies and the pièce de résistance, a beautiful, beribboned paper fox mask. I lusted after this for several days, until my beloved guardian.co.uk posted a PDF of the mask itself, allowing anyone to dress up and play Fantastic Ms Fox. Modelled below by the lovely Flo, The mask can be downloaded and printed – stick to stiff card, cut out, add ribbons and go and play in the woods. Who said outdoors wear can’t be chic?

See more pictures of the gorgeous show at Fashion Foie Gras or watch the collection video at Mulberry. Oh and next time, Mulberry, don’t forget my invite, yeah?
