The Spring/Summer 2014 Burberry Prorsum show was a delight of pastel colors.
Petals raining upon us during the finale - check. Trench coats - check. Cara Delevingne on the catwalk - check. All the standard Burberry ingredients were there, but this season there were no studs, no hard-hitting, form-fitting glamour - it was Christopher Bailey in relaxed mode. The palette was pastely passive - macaroon colours letting lacy dresses and front-split pencil skirts play tasty filling to the coats, while sheepskin clutches scrunched in one hand added a dash of darker orange or pink. Light suede tan coats and grey school cardigans were further evidence of Bailey's calm demeanour, before gobstopping brooches adorned the lace dresses and belts around wide necked satin coats. The jewels held dresses on one shoulder. Some even made Cara's transparent waterproof cape unsuitable for rain. Polka dots worn with stripes replaced this season's hearts - Christopher Bailey is at the top of his game and he's clearly having fun.
