Founded in England in 1856 by Thomas Burberry, the British luxury fashion power house is today best known for it’s distinct and classic checked pattern as well as it’s iconic trench coat. Currently led by Chief Creative & Chief Executive Officer Christopher Bailey, the heritage brand has grown and expanded from opening it’s first shop in the Haymarket, London, to a world-wide presence of over 500 stores internationally.
Burberry is a high fashion brand that offers a range of menswear, womenswear, childrenswear, coats, jackets, dresses, denim, accessories, shoes, bags, fragrances and cosmetics. Catering to the different needs of the consumer, Burberry operates under three different brands:
- Burberry Prorsum – for all things run-way and fashion-forward collections that express the brand’s design and inspirations
- Burberry London – a tailored, office friendly collection suitable for formal occasions and work day attire
- Burberry Brit – a little something for more casual days, days off and the weekend
There are also a few Burberry Black & Blue Label stores located around the city, offering pieces from the Japanese-licensed extension of the brand.
