With Burberry’s showing of the Prorsum women’s wear Spring/Summer 2014 collection comes a blessing in bespoke disguise. Launched in February this year, the brand’s Runway Made to Order service makes its reappearance. Clanging from last time’s success perhaps, metal plates prepare to get engraved, covers, etched, under the complimentary service that undergoes an evolution this season. Think Burberry goodies from next season’s collection racked right off the runway and personalized before they even hit stores! And while much has been made of the brand’s innovative leap involving shooting the S/S ’14 show with an iPhone5s, what’s revealed with the latest range are cool iPhone sized niches in stylish accessories as well as chic cases dedicated to the smartphone, customize-able, again. Until Monday, September 30, that is. Want a quick browse through the best on offer? Read on.

The Petal in Deerskin and Curly Shearling
Oh deer! I can almost picture this cuddly little creature, err, creation scuttling away abashedly. Look how pink it blushes albeit with an almost-yet-not-quite bold mauve tinge. Thank the curly shearling for the ‘not-quite’ as that’s what deems this accessory a $1,695 wardrobe darling.
