Christopher Bailey had us at the heart prints that dotted trench coats and dresses coming down the runway for Burberry Autumn/Winter '13. It was a skilled nod to the label's heritage — coats, leather, pencil skirts — all served up with Bailey's modern interpretation: high-impact pieces that incite interest without ever losing sight of what women want to wear. In this lineup, we got more sweetness, but there was a slicker, tougher counter to all those hearts, too — texture took shape as studded gromets sewn into the fringe that covered leather skirts and handbags — and among the standouts, there were the luxe leopard-print coats begging to be scooped up by Kate Moss or Alexa Chung. Our full review will be posted shortly; in the meantime, click through for a look at the collection.
