There was a Bohemian feel at Burberry's autumn/winter showcase on 23 February as designer Christopher Bailey sent his models down the runway dressed in patchwork floral printed dresses, fringed jackets and oversized ponchos in rich shades of berry, ochre, teal and chocolate.
The collection was inspired by a mixture of folk craft in Britain and used quilting, whip-stitching and ornate embroidery on Burberry's signature trench coats, as well as lace and crochet detailing across its delicate silk dresses.
"We have been playing with this idea of all the different crafts, from embroidery and whip-stitching and quilting, and how to put them together in a collection. If you look around the whole UK, you have a really diversity of cultures that bring with it these crafts and what I wanted to do with the show was to celebrate that," Bailey said.
"It had a little bit of a folky feeling and I wanted it to all feel quite relaxed and effortless, so the idea of a poncho that you throw on, that's how we wanted to collection to feel," he added.
The show, one of the starriest on the London Fashion Week calendar saw a number of big names in fashion in the front seats. Model veterans Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell were there along with photographer Mario Testino, as well as models of the moment Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn.
The show was supported with a live performance by British singer Clare Maguire. Burberry, which regularly invites young British music talent to perform at their shows, has in the past seen performances by Paloma Faith, Tom Odell and James Bay.
London Fashion Week runs until Tuesday 24 February.
