Since Burberry was launched in England in the 19th century, the label has gained a worldwide reputation for classic British luxury. The brand recently opened its third Amsterdam store, located on the Dam. Visit the boutique to invest in a trench coat from Burberry’s spring/summer collection. The Burberry trench dates back to 1895, when Thomas Burberry was selling coats from a small shop in the English countryside. He used gabardine, an ingenious fabric that is ideal for breathable, rain-resistant coats, and his designs were subsequently adopted by British army officers. Today the trench remains Burberry’s most iconic design, one that has continuously evolved throughout its history.
