Established in 1856, Burberry is an iconic British brand best known for their trench coats. Burberry isn’t your average outwear company either: They are a revolutionary thanks to their state-of-the-art fabric, gabardine. Gabardine was invented by Burberry’s founder, Thomas Burberry, as an alternative to the heavy, uncomfortable materials typically used for rainwear. This innovative weatherproof fabric was instead lightweight and breathable—making Burberry’s coats an instant success worldwide, attracting the likes of everyone from regular consumers to polar adventurers.
To this day, Burberry has maintained their global reputation for functionality and unique British sensibility. Their store in The Mall at Millenia showcases all of the brand’s most iconic styles, giving Orlando shoppers an inside look at the London fashion scene.
