Blighty and Burberry: A Recipe for Great British Fashion
Since 1856 Burberry has been dressing the nation in tartan, trench coats and luxurious fabrics to suit those with an eye for taste who can appreciate the style of characteristically British clothing.
Although Burberry claims outerwear as its main product (it’s been dubbed “the King of the Weatherproofs” since 1926), you’ll find a whole range of new season Burberry UK styles, which as well as incorporating trench coats and scarves into this, also features both men and women’s shoes, fragrances and accessories.
So what is it about Burberry that makes it so quintessentially British? The models of course!
Today we’re taking at look at some of Burberry’s most gorgeous faces…
Let’s start big. Fashion icon Kate Moss first started modelling with Burberry in 1992, posing seductively in the brand’s best-selling item; the trench coat. She featured as a predominant face of Burberry until 2007, featuring in some of their most notable shoots including their limited edition Burberry trench coat.
Since her stint on reality TV show Britain’s Next Top Model Agyness was quickly snapped up by lots of modelling agencies. A Burberry contract was almost inevitable. Her tomboy style and androgynous look made her a top choice to rock the military trench coat.
She’s become a global phenomenon since the Harry Potter series and so it wasn’t long before her looks were discovered by Burberry. Her stint in their SS10 collection looked promising however, gorgeous Em was dropped from the label in favour of…
Voted sexiest woman in the world, Burberry jumped at the chance to have Rosie as the face of their brand. Posing seductively for Burberry’s eau de toilette campaign wearing nothing but a trench coat, Rosie definitely brings sexy back.
Other notable celebs who are frequent fans of donning Burberry include Sienna Miller, Jessica Alba and Victoria Beckham. Burberry has been granted Royal Warrants by HM Queen Elizabeth II and now sits in the top 100 valuable brands in the world – approval from the Queen; it doesn’t get more British than that!
