Who can say they wanted anything but a classic trench from Burberry before Christopher Bailey came along? Even though Burberry, established in 1856, is one of the oldest fashion labels in existence, their first ready-to-wear collection was launched in 1998 by Roberto Menichetti. In 2001, Christopher Bailey was appointed the position of creative director at Burberry Prorsum after he left his own stamp at Gucci for five years under Tom Ford.
C. Bailey has taken a fashion label well over a hundred years old, know for it’s waterproof fabrics and trench-coats,and within ten years, made Burberry into a chic, hip, contemporary clothing line with accessories, shoes and handbags that are just as beautiful as the clothes you should wear them with. Mr. Bailey has done the Burberry Prorsum label right and always gives us new interpretations of the trench-coat every season.
