LONDON, ENGLAND, UNITED KINGDOM (SEPTEMBER 18, 2012) (REUTERS) -  Singer, Lana Del Rey, and model, Kate Moss, took front row at the Spring/ Summer 2013 show for quintessentially British brand, Mulberry on Tuesday (September 18.)

Lana Del Rey, who is now appearing in H&M's advertising campaign, and has a Mulberry bag named after her, wore white and accessorised with a Mulberry black and white bag before taking her seat to view the collection inspired by a pastel water colour palette.

Model and presenter, Alexa Chung, who also has a bag named after her, took front row position alongside Moss and actress, Rebecca Hall

British heptathlete, Jessica Ennis, who won gold at the 2012 London Olympics, wore black and carried a Mulberry bag, named after an area of West London, and seen on the arms of the likes of Andy Murray's girlfriend, Kim Sears, and singer, Pixie Lott:

Ennis said it was her favourite Mulberry piece:

"At the moment it's my Bayswater. I love this colour and it's just great to wear with a nice simple black dress - to bring a bit of colour to it."

Better known for its handbag collections, Mulberry's clothing range for next season included soft leather coats and trousers in biscuit brown.

Chief designer, Emma Hill, brought in capes and jackets, echoing Monday's Burberry show, but using softer colours.

Florals and laces were used to break up the wide leather biker jackets and floaty maxi skirts skimmed the runway.

Kate Moss and Atlanta de Cadenet, wore dark leather jackets for the show.

X-Files actress, Gillian Anderson, who is in talks to make a movie with Sean Bean, set on British shores, showed her support for Mulberry, at the show with an English country garden tea party setting at Clardige's Hotel in London't Mayfair.

"There's a whimsy to it, I think. I think of freshness. I think of England. It feels very mature but very young at the same time." Said Anderson

A small black pug graced the celebrity crowd and posed for photographers wearing this season's Mulberry coat with a fur trim hood, while a grey poodle strode the catwalk wearing a Spring peacoat.
