If only one name was needed to summarize the over 150 years of the house, it would be Thomas Burberry, its creator. Far from the brand's glam image, Burberry took flight in 1856 when the young prodigy opened his first boutique 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 becomes synonymous with timeless trench with inimitable tiles. Today, the brand is admired by an international clientele for its revisited classics and its clever balance between elegant and utilitarian designs and a contemporary approach.
