The Tale of Thomas Burberry


Yesterday as I was going through my Facebook I came across something incredibly amazing and a bit tricky about Burberry! Before I get to this part just a brief history of the brand!

Burberry was established by Thomas Burberry in 1856, they were specialised in outdoor clothing.  In 1879 the company revolutionised rainwear with a breathable and waterproof fabric, called gabardine. Trench coats were originally designed for the army, other piece of clothing for polar explorers, so we can’t really say these were fashion items. However, today celebrities, like Emma Watson or Romeo Beckham are featured in their campaigns.

So, Burberry created a movie trailer as an advert, made by the Academy Award-winning Asif Kapadia, starring Domhnall Gleeson, Sienna Miller, Dominic West and Lilly James. Honestly, for a second I really thought that it will be a movie (please,please), but I’m afraid that it’s ‘just’ the best advert this year.

Here is the video, hope you will enjoy it as much as I did!
