BURBERRY luxury fashion house

BURBERRY youthful appeal

Burberry began by focusing on outerwear and was the creator of the gabardine. They also created the ‘trench coat’ when they were commissioned by the War Office to make the coats of their officers ready for the conditions of warfare. The Trench Coat became a popular choice of outerwear with civilians once the war had ended. The Burberry check became popular with football goers in the 1970’s and became synonymous with hooligans, and ‘chavs’ by the 1990’s, seriously damaging the company’s image.
In order to rectify this damage, Burberry have re-launched their image which a new youthful appeal. The Autumn Winter collection 2009-2010 is another stylish, simple collection of clothing. It is full of classic pieces which do not follow current trends but rather stick to sophisticated clean cuts for which they are well known. Burberry have used the beautiful young actress Emma Watson as the face for their Autumn Winter 09-10 ad campaign and she showcases the stunning clothes to perfection. This September the fashion house announced Emma Watson as the face of Prorsum spring/summer 2010 collection.
