I have to tell you when I saw Burberry's collection, I heaved a huge sigh of relief. Finally a collection that oozed pure Britishness! If it was in any other fashion week, it wouldn't look like it belonged because the all-British vibe was clearly felt through the clothes. And looking back at the rest of the shows at London Fashion Week, this show was hands-down my favourite. Everything about the collection was utter perfection, from the sexy yet tasteful clothes in a multitude of sherbet hues, to the gorgeous Hyde Park venue combined with the wonderful sunny weather, to the simple fact that supermodels Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn walked in it.

Burberry officially left the hard-edgy-punk style for Spring 2014 in favour of a delicious array of candy colours. From soft rose pink and deep red, tints of mint and light daisy yellow, to lilac and powder blue, pastels ruled the runway and gave the show a much-needed laid-back vibe. True to his "very gentle, very tender" approach to the collection, Christopher Bailey used fabrics such as delicate Nottingham floral lace, soft cashmere, as well as sheer to create covetable pieces ranging from high-waisted pencil skirts to cocktail dresses.The result? Feminine light-as-a-feather looks with just the right dose of sex appeal. The sheer skirts and patterned lace tops were hinting at enough to get people thinking (and talking), and if they weren't understatedly sexy enough, I don't know what is. (As you can see the amount of lace used here is phenomenal, so it's actually quite safe to say Mr. Bailey used miles of it in this collection.)

Lush makeover-ed outerwear was clearly the main attraction of the show. Think voluminous cardigans in a faded pink, comfy cashmere sweaters and body-con suede coats in pale lilac and mint, with hints of shimmer from the bejeweled belts cinched on them. Not even Burberry's signature trench was spared the makeover, turning up on the runway in mint, blue and pink. The coats aptly amped up the silhouettes, giving the airy dresses both shape and definition.

 Later in the show, the collection took a fun, more whimsical turn with the use of graphic polka dots and stripes as well as oval-shaped sunglasses. Global It-girl Cara Delevingne rounded off the stunning collection in a sheer rain coat and a pink floral lace dress.

 Fun, cool, iconic and impossibly British, the collection fully embodied the British spirit and Burberry itself, yet it added a touch of whimsy and femininity at the same time. Ladurée macarons anyone?
