Burberry is a British luxury fashion house founded in 1856, by Thomas Burberry. By 1880 Burberry has introduced the unpopular, hardwearing, water-resistant, yet breathable fabric, gabardine, to his male coat design. These were especially popular in 1914 amongst the English military during WW1, as they were well suited for the weather conditions. In the same year Thomas Burberry created one of his most iconic items, the Trench coat, which continues or be one of the best selling pieces of the brand even today.
The distinctive Burberry tartan print is one of the most recognizable, and copied prints worldwide. Initially the caramel, red, white and black check print was used solely as the lining in clothes, however with Rose Marie Bravo entering the company the print was adapted towards several other Burberry Accessories. In 2001 Christopher Bailey joined Burberry as Creative Director, and has maintained the position till date. The Luxury Souq is India’s fastest growing boutique for buying & selling your Burberry Bags, Watches and Accessories.
