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. While Burberry’s trench coats are still one for the most popular jackets, they also offer many other designs like quilted and puffer coats.
Another Burberry signature is their classic check pattern. This print can be found throughout all of their offerings from the inside of their jackets to accessories to their sweaters and scarves. While outerwear designed for extreme weather may not be the most practical for Orlando residents (although their trench coats and umbrellas do come in handy for Florida’s frequent rain showers), there are plenty of other ways to incorporate Burberry into your closet. Their location within The Mall at Millenia carries a wide range of handbags, shoes, belts, ready-to-wear apparel, and more, so you can get your Brit fix and experience Burberry’s unparalleled quality and design.
