Founded in 1856 by Thomas Burberry, Burberry is a global luxury brand with a distinctive British identity. The brand has a strong reputation for design, innovation and craftsmanship. The history of the company is deep-rooted in British culture. The designer invented the material gabardine, a better alternative to rubber for producing outdoor uniforms.
Thomas made uniforms, the trench coats, for the soldiers in the First World War with the new material. He even equipped them with belt rings from which the wearer could hang grenades, maps and flasks; straps on the shoulders to secure a satchel, binoculars and gas mask; and large flaps on the chest designated to protect the heart.
The brand has a fascinating history and their brand has been worn countless times in Hollywood and other places where they value the importance of fashion. Now, this iconic brand has released a huge collection collaboration with one of our favorite brands: Supreme.
