Burberry was founded in 1856 when the gentlemen's outfitter and draper Thomas Burberry opened his first shop in Basingstoke in Hampshire. It is today one of the most popular and well-known luxury brands in the world. Burberry found fame firstly with the gabardine material he invented himself in 1880, a robust, waterproof and also breathable cotton material, and secondly with the development of the trench coat, a classic design which was soon seen throughout the world and which is reinvented every season by the British fashion label. The famous Burberry Check pattern which was initially used as a lining and later registered as a trademark was used for the first time in 1924. Today, it forms part of every collection and features in various colour combinations in almost every product. As might be expected of a traditional British company, the Burberry headquarters are now in London.
With its fashion-conscious collections, which are developed, reinterpreted and adapted in line with the season, the elegant English label has risen over the past few years to become one of the most desirable luxury brands and one of the fashion houses exerting most global influence. The collections are extravagant, funky and elegant. In addition to the trench coats, the traditional label is also know for its unmistakable Burberry bags, capes, caps, cocktail dresses, pencil skirts, drainpipe trousers and knitted cardigans. The brand places value on its traditional style and British heritage, but with provocative colours, textiles and cut also makes a significant mark in the fashion world.
In addition to clothes, accessories, spectacles, watches and perfumes, Burberry also develops its own children's collection which has made the lifestyle brand famous far beyond England's shores and which can be purchased at affordable prices at the Burberry sale at OUTLETCITY METZINGEN.
