    Christopher Bailey served up darling heart prints for fall '13, but that collection's Profumo Affair influence and kinky sheer rubber skirts smacked more of lust than love.

    This time around, though, the newlywed Burberry Prorsum chief creative officer is in a more intimate, romantic mood...and we couldn't be more thrilled.

    With Suki Waterhouse, Naomie Harris, Sienna Miller, Paloma Faith, Alexa Chung, Poppy Delevingne, and (OMG!) Harry Styles looking on from the front row, the spring '14 show wooed us with light-and-lovely cashmere knits and macrame lace in a gorgeous range of icy pastels.

    Dubbed English Rose, the collection was exceedingly ladylike, but not precious. Lace pencil skirts arrived in a soft palette of mint, rose pink, dusky mauve, and lavender, yet were paired with handheld Petal clutches in intense hues like grape and berry red for a poppy punch.

    While the cardigan-style overcoats in Scottish cashmere imbued the collection with a softness, backless jumpers, see-through blouses, and those sheer lace skirts layered over high-waist briefs provided a sexy wink. Later, red and navy polka-dot blouses were teamed with black-and-white striped skirts for a bold, modern twist.

    But, what really won us over: the accessories. We fell for the white-framed, vintage-feeling Petal sunglasses, while the rubber-flower and ornate gem-flecked belts already have us tossing out our skinny belts.

    And, while chunky gem embellishments adorned the collection's more formal dresses, our hearts beat fastest for a pale yellow one-shoulder wrap dress worn by Jourdan Dunn. That, followed shortly by a shower of actual pink rose petals onto the runway, should have us swooning straight into spring.
