Who said all models have to be size zero?

The latest creature to grace Mulberry's campaigns is this gorgeous little piglet.

This pink cutey has been modelling for the brand's Spring Summer 2011 tactical brochure. See Mulberry's original blog post here.

How to beat the April Showers by Hunter

Hunter's new shoes look to be the solution to soggy toes in Spring time.

The Curzon
Initially I was a bit sceptical about rubber pumps, but then realised these may just be the solution I've been looking for. Ballet shoes are a necessary staple for every girl's wardrobe. However, even the best material shoes can't stand up to British weather. 

At £75 a pair, these cute little pumps (available in Curzon and Fulham - with a cute buckle on the toe) are a great addition to your spring wardrobe.

Still not buying it?
Well, who says rubber can't be stylish? After all Vivienne Westwood's gorgeous Anglomania shoes are still massively popular several seasons on from their launch.

"Moving, magical moments" from Mulberry: the video campaign for SS2011

After a very busy week away working on a kids' magazine, Chic & Cheerful is back!

The lovely Tallullah Elle reminded me of this fantastic video campaign from Mulberry for S/S11.

The film
The film is composed of six shots from Mulberry's campaign photographed by Tim Walker. The images were cut out and layered to create "...a montage of moving, magical moments from the original campaign images: romantic, ethereal and in keeping with the theme of our Spring Summer 2011 season."

Backstage at Mulberry

Following on from the blogger's view of A/W2011 a few weeks ago, I found this great video of backstage at Mulberry. Definitely worth a watch.

Henry Holland: A/W 2011-12 test video

Dree Hemingway, Pixie Geldof and Mr. Holland himself star in this test film from House of Holland. On a mock shopping channel/game show style set, we get a better look at Henry's bingo inspired collection.

Personally I'm not a huge fan of Henry Holland, it's far too eighties for my taste. Or maybe I'm just not cool enough to rock the crochet and bingo look.

Following on from the blogger's view of Mulberry at London Fashion Week post that was published a few weeks ago, I unearthed this link from the Guardian: how to make your own Mulberry fox mask.

After reading Hilary Alexander's profile of Emmanuelle Alt last week, I was on tenterhooks waiting to see what the new editor of French Vogue's first cover would look like. I expected something dark, grungy and very edgy but instead received a very big surprise.
