Burberry Trench coat


Synonymous with timeless pieces every woman should own, and reinvented every Fall season, Thomas Burberry the Founder and designer of the Trench coat never intended or thought his design would be such a classic design hanging in every fashionable woman's closet.

Thomas Burberry was commissioned by the War office in 1914 to adapt an officers coat to suit all weather conditions during WWI. The coat was durable, water resistant, and light. Soon after lined with the infamous "Burberry Check" pattern, the coat caught the eyes of the fashion industry and became what it is today.
