Five chapters, featuring 200 illustrations, depict Burberry’s evolution from a family-run company founded in 1856 to a renowned global luxury brand in 2022. Each explores a range of notable events and the emblems for which Burberry is renowned. Think inspiring explorers, signature trench coats, and a distinct British identity. Written by noted fashion journalist, author, and critic Alexander Fury and with a foreword by Carly Eck, Burberry’s Brand Curator, ‘Burberry’ exemplifies the brand’s extraordinary heritage, innovation, and cultural significance.

“Burberry is a story of creativity, exploration, innovation, and community – all of which continue to be at the heart of the brand. In unearthing a dormant treasure trove, countless gold nuggets have been revealed. This book, the only one to be endorsed by the brand in recent times, presents a panorama of the company’s extraordinary heritage, which deserves to be widely celebrated. It’s the stuff of legends,” shares Carly Eck, Brand Curator. 

The book is now available at Burberry and Assouline stores and online at www.burberry.com.
