Founded in 1856, Burberry fast became a bastion of British propriety, churning out macs and other classic outerwear that is as iconic and patriotic as the Union Jack. Under the creative reign of Christopher Bailey, the house has dusted off its legacy and moved to the forefront of high fashion.
Drawing freely from the house codes, Bailey injects a good dose of rock’n‘roll attitude and irreverence into that illustrious heritage. The result is a new twist on propriety that comes in a full range of ready-to-wear and accessories. The star in the empire remains the classic trench coat, initially developed for soldiers, but now a staple in every wardrobe. Bailey’s 21st century versions come studded, beaded, in leather and snakeskin variations – something for everyone.
