London, England One of my favorite highlights from London Fashion Week was the Burberry Prorsum Womenswear SS2014 Show. The open space of runway was so lovely, just like being in the greenhouse of an English garden, hence the theme of the show was the English Rose.
|Shop the Runway: Burberry Portrait Neckline Trench|
What caught my eye from Burberry's Spring 2014 line were their soft flowing shell coats in a buttery wool and silk fabric and pastel tones. One that I especially liked was a belted version which shows the waist similar to how their classic trench in the lead photo does. You'll see this Portrait Neckline Trench in the show but with a colorful gem-encrusted belt at the waist. This gives this neutral coat a pop of fresh spring color while accenting the female shape. Look for it in the Full Show Video below, as it is a show stopper!
Burberry Prorsum Womenswear Spring Summer 2014 Collection
Every show has a story. Here is the theme right from Burberry themselves:
FABRIC & CRAFTCelebrating rich British fabrics and expert craftsmanship. Coats wrap intricate English lace, while Scottish-knitted cashmere and soft suede create clean, modern textures with gemstone motifs.

The runway collection features muted powder tones with shots of radiant brights. Vibrant pastels are expressed on raw silk and lace, while summer hues of mint, lilac and rose are softened on sheer jersey, suede and brushed cashmere.
Burberry Show Finale:
This Vinyl Gem Encrusted Jacket was another show stopper which is why they saved it for the finale. It's one way to beat the showers while letting your beautiful English lace show through.
