Would You Buy This $1,395 Burberry Poncho?

There was a lot to love about Burberry Prorsum's Fall 2014 collection, which walked in London just the other day—the vibrant bohemian prints, the frequent, flattering use of waist-cinching belts and the front-row Bradley Cooper sighting (swoon) chief among them. But by far my favorite part of the show was the parade of equestrian-style color-blocked blankets that every model wore during the final walk, each monogrammed with the initials of its wearer.

Word on the street's that the catwalkers got to keep those ponchos as souvenirs after the show—but for those of us who, well, aren't Cara Delevingne or Suki Waterhouse, there is some good news: from now until March 3, the collection's pièce de résistance is available to shop at Burberry.com. Just like the runway version, the poncho can be monogrammed—but it will set you back a cool $1,395. For that price, you could pick up one of the label's iconic trenches or duffle coats instead. So which would you shell out for first?
