OK, so we knew it would only be a matter of time until we had to swallow our pride, dry our tears and acknowledge a whole hoard of celebrities decked out in Burberry Prorsum’s mouthwatering monogrammed blanket coats.
And indeed our envy has already reached fever pitch, having spotted Cara D and Olivia Palermo in theirs, looking suitably AW14-ready. But now, Alexa has just made us want to pick up a sewing kit and initial everything we own thanks to her Burberry blanket’s weekend outing.
Taking to Instagram to show off her personalised prize, Alexa looked typically cool as she accessorised with a flower garland around her neck. We’re officially smitten.
And although these beauties are not only out of our price range, but also pretty much sold out around the world, the high street has come to our rescue once again with a series of tributes. And you’ll just have
to stitch on your own initials…
