Founded in 1856 by Thomas Burberry, the Burberry house is celebrated for its ability to develop classic looks influenced by the functionality of military uniforms. The house's iconic trenchcoat and Nova Check print have become a quintessential part of Burberry heritage, which has expanded to include sportswear, outerwear and the iconic runway label, Burberry Prorsum. Christopher Bailey has been at Burberry's helm since 2001, delivering clean, classic looks that define luxury apparel.
