Is there a more classic trench coat than the Burberry one?! Of course, Burberry has a lot of different designs to offer but the classic style is present. You can easily sport a Burberry trench by the ever-recognizable Burberry check! The signature combination of camel, ivory, red and black, is used to line the trench coats and scarves since the 1920s. One of the many trench coats with the Burberry check is the Kensington Heritage!
Initially, the trench was designed for officers but gained popularity by film stars, artists and royalty. Nowadays, the Burberry coat is a style staple among the A-listers. From office tailoring to decadent evening ensembles, the trench coat can also be paired with off-duty denim and cashmere. Moreover, it is the perfect garment for the in-between seasons. The coat’s versatility is also loved by many celebrities such as Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Cara Delevingne.
Crafted by using gabardine, a tough and hard-wearing fabric invented by Thomas Burberry in 1879, each trench coat takes approximately three weeks to make. Hence, the price tag of nearly $2,000!
