Initial reaction:

Blossoming spring in sporty speed.

References:

Spring's fresh blooms and the ease of sportswear – a prevailing theme of SS14.

Stand out pieces: 

The tulle petal covered baseball jacket and cascades of ruffles on the front of full-skirted dresses. 

Unexpected details:

The elegant folds and deep turn-up hems of super-wide trousers, and slipped skirts revealing a sliver of waist and the tops of underwear.

Most likely to: 

Cruise through a cherry blossom lined avenue, while riding a skateboard. 

Least likely to:

Deter the Marni diehards, especially with the abstracted bird and blossom graphic print.  

Accessories: 

Best visors of the season thus far - curved and bejewelled - and Japanese geta-esque platform sandals. 

Viral moment: 

A technological glitch meant that there was no sound and no lights. Models walked without a soundtrack and show goers contemplated the collection in silence.  

Soundtrack: 

Only the photographer's pit camera clicks and spontaneous applause for the models who walked to the rhythm of their head.

Left us wanting:

To see more shows in silence. The audience were less distracted and concentrated on the main event - the clothes.
