Burberry goes sheer and shady for S/S '16

There's nothing demure about the Burberry girl this season - instead she's fierce and not afraid to flash some flesh

Oh, and she won't go anywhere without her backpack. All the models sported a chic Burberry carryall for the show's finale, cementing its status as the It-bag of the new season - with the added enticement of gold Burberry monogramming.

Considered the golden ticket of London Fashion Week, the Burberry show did not disappoint - Christopher Bailey presented a luxe take on athleisure, pairing lashings of lace with sporty mesh. Even the classic Burberry trench was given an of-the-minute update, paired with a black mesh hood. The season's colours are black, white and camel, toughened up with plenty of gold hardware, with a couple of pretty pastel dresses thrown in to appeal to the classic English roses who buy up big on Burberry each season.

The majority of the collection, however, caters to Burberry's shadier ladies. Russian one-to-watch Victoria Kosenkova opened the show in a sheer lacy black dress worn underneath a trench, setting the tone for a series of daring sheer designs, pieces heavy with embellishment and oversized blazers toughened up with gold hardware. The shock of the show, however, was the shoe - instead of the killer heel Burberry usually brings out each season, models wore flat slides embellished with chunky chains across the straps.

Of-course Christopher Bailey didn't forget the boys: low-slung trackies surprised on the runway, dressed up with tasselled loafers and white lace shirts that we predict girlfriends will be stealing from men's wardrobes the world over.
