Close your eyes. If you hear the word Burberry, what comes to mind? Of course the Trench, but also the check print. This pattern was first created in the 1920s on the Burberry raincoat. For 40 years, it was acclaimed by customers but it was still only featured in linings. It was in 1967 which it rose to the next level and was diverted from its original function. A buyer from the Parisian Burberry team decided to remove the material from a trench coat to wrap an umbrella for the British ambassador Sir Patrick Reill. The check print took on a new role and began to appear on the Burberry accessories. Since 1970, the famous tartan check has appeared on the iconic Burberry cashmere scarf, available this year in a pink version for our little ones. Over time, the check print has taken over the clothes, the accessories… Upon taking the reins at Burberry, Riccardo Tisci deconstructed it and brought a new life to the British brand. This season, the Check is transformed into linear in a striped version on the kids clothes.
Burberry Animal Kingdom
Animals have always been an important part of Burberry’s heritage…and especially in the kids collections. This season, Riccardo Tisci featured a truer-than-life fawn on the kids pieces. A world made up of unicorns, fawns and patterns of Graou are found on the cult pieces. Lady unicorn strolls on an incredible trench, the panther walks its feline paws elegantly on the mesh pieces and the deer finds itself as a champion print. Finally, the adorable teddy bear named Thomas in honor of Burberry’s founder will be the perfect birth gift.

The Burberry Heritage trench
We’ve seen it on the adults. Humphrey Bogart, Audrey Hepburn, Meryl Streep, Inspector Gadget… The trench, invented by Thomas Burberry in 1879 was initially the favorite accessory of explorers of all kinds at the time. The reason? A gabardine in cotton which was lightweight and waterproof, revolutionary for its time. It was only once the trench was recognised by the Hollywood studios that it took on the timeless glamor that it is known for today. The Trench is notably featured in world renowned films such as Casablanca, Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Kramer vs. Kramer.
