Since its founding in England in 1856, Burberry has been synonymous with quality, as defined by the endurance, classicism and functionality that characterized its history. Burberry has become a leading luxury brand with a global business. The eyewear collection, under license since 2006, is inspired by the brand’s innovative ready-to-wear and accessories collections and incorporates very recognizable iconic elements for both men and women.
The most recent eyewear collection from Burberry, The Gabardine Collection, takes its inspiration from Burberry’s iconic gabardine fabric. First invented by the company’s founder Thomas Burberry in 1879, the lightweight and protective gabardine cloth is woven at the Burberry Mill in Yorkshire for the brand’s heritage trench coats.
