BURBERRY

When 21-year-old Thomas Burberry, a draper’s assistant, opened his own store in Basingstoke, England, in 1856, little did he know his name would become a British fashion legacy. Focusing on outdoor attire, Burberry supplied WWI officers with coats to protect them in the trenches, and the iconic ‘trench coat’ was born. Today, Burberry’s signature design is joined by a line-up of contemporary pieces for men, women and children, at the hand of Creative Director Riccardo Tisci . From the Italian-made Runway collection to iconic staples such as the trench coat and the cashmere check scarf, Burberry stands for superior quality and timeless design, changing the face of fashion season upon season with its trend-defining collections.
