Christopher Bailey serves up a romantic, bohemian inspired collection for his last offering as creative director before he takes on the role of CEO

Inspired by bohemian Bloomsbury artists of 1920s London, Burberry Prorsum's show held in London earlier today, marked the last show under the creative direction of Christopher Bailey before he takes on his new role, and Angela Ahrendts, who will soon leave her post as chief executive officer.

Bailey offered a romantic collection, complete with bohemian painted scarf dresses, classic trenches designed with floral prints and large leather painted handbags - enhanced with the vocals of English singer-songwriter Paloma Faith, who performed Only Love Can Hurt Like This.

Bradley Cooper, who sat between Anna Wintour and Hamish Bowles, was on hand to support Suki Waterhouse (the face of Burberry's latest fragrance Brit Rhythm) in yet another London Fashion Week show.

The collection commenced with a colour palette consisting of earthy muted tones in dusky pinks, lilacs, yellows and oranges, before progressing into blues, violets and greens. The summer florals also turned to leaf motifs further into the show, appearing on skirts and dresses.

Long artistic scarves featured strongly throughout the collection, styled around the neck, tucked into belts, which offered another layer to the floral printed trenches.

For the finale, models all wearing the same monogrammed blankets took to the runway, before Bailey appeared to take his final bow.
