The turbulent history of the Burberry brand
The history of Burberry began in 1856 when Thomas Burberry consulted his doctor for rheumatism problems. He advised him not to wear his rubber raincoat, which does not wick away perspiration and promotes back pain. At the same time, Thomas Burberry opened a store 80 km from London, when he was barely 21 years old. He was a young designer who dressed the notables of his region and who specialized in sports and outdoor clothing. Eager to create a waterproof but ventilated rain coat, Thomas Burberry invented gabardine, a fabric that protects against the cold, with a ventilated weave but resistant to rain. He patented this new fabric in 1888 and created a now cult jacket: the famous Burberry trench coat. In 1891, Thomas Burberry opened his first boutique in London. Achieving great success with his gabardine, it was he who was commissioned by the Minister of Defense to design the new uniforms for the British officers. Burberry's reputation continued to expand. Likewise, the year 1924 was also a key date for Burberry. This is the year of the invention of the famous white, black and camel Scottish tartan, emblematic of the brand. Also, although the brand was ceded to the descendants of Thomas Burberry, its success has never wavered. Today, many stars dress in the brand's famous motif and the trench coat has also remained a centerpiece of many wardrobes. Moreover, Burberry is marked by an extraordinary ability to bounce back and reinvent itself in order to stay modern. This is also why its range has been extended to other products.
