View Designer Profile
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 trench coat and Nova Check print have become a quintessential part of its heritage, which has expanded to include sportswear, outerwear, and the iconic runway label Burberry Prorsum. Since 2001, creative director Christopher Bailey has brought a modern and challenging approach to the brand's quintessentially British vision of luxury. Innovative fabrics, a flair for technology, and a sense of whimsy mark its current incarnation.
