If there was only one name to sum up the more than 150 years of the house, it would be that of Thomas Burberry, its creator. Far from the glam image that the brand nourishes today, Burberry took off in 1856 when the young prodigy opened his first store in Basingstoke, in the British province of Hampshire. It was in 1920 that the house imposed its codes and made Scottish tartan the leitmotif of its collections. Burberry then becomes synonymous with the timeless trench coat with inimitable checks. Today, the brand is admired by an international clientele for its revisited classics and its skilful balance between elegant and utilitarian designs and a completely contemporary approach.
