Burberry Heritage Trench Coat “The Westminster” available at Burberry
With over one hundred years of British craftsmanship, Burberry is releasing a new line of outerwear for its Heritage Trench Coat Collection. The line is made exclusively in Castleford, England, where workers take approximately three weeks to make each coat. The outerwear designs come in three distinct styles–The Sandringham (which has a slim fit), The Kensington (which has a modern fit, tapered at the waist) and The Westminster (classic fit). You can shop the Burberry Heritage Trench Coat collection on Burberry.com.

Kate and Cara Together at Last–Two of modeling’s hottest names–Kate Moss and Cara Delevingne–are set to star in a fragrance campaign together for British brand Burberry’s yet to revealed scent. The pair were photographed by Mario Testino, and the advertisement is set to be released this fall. In an image teased by the brand on its Instagram, Kate and Cara are seen smiling together wearing trench coats. It’s an interesting choice, considering Karl Lagerfeld recently compared Delevingne to the iconic supermodel in an interview.
Burberry Throwbck–Taking a break from show season, it’s time for another installment of Throwback Thursday. Today, we look back at Burberry’s spring-summer 2005 campaign which featured Kate Moss and Karen Elson. The British luxury label chose an outdoor picnic setting for the black and white advertisements captured by Mario Testino. And even now Testino and Kate are still collaborating–most recently on the Peruvian photographer’s “Towel Series” that stars Kate and other top models.
Burberry Brit Rhythm–The rock and roll inspired fragrance, Burberry Brit by Burberry, gets a feminine companion with Burberry Brit Rhythm for Women. The face of the new scent is model and Bradley Cooper’s girlfriend Suki Waterhouse. Described as an unusual scent with musk, orange blossom notes and English lavender; the fragrance is a floral one with a sense of unexpectedness. See the campaign photos and video below featuring Suki.
Burberry’s New Look – For Burberry’s spring-summer 2014 campaign, the English luxury brand taps a cast of British models and talent including former Prada face Malaika Firth as well as Jean Campbell Bower, Leo Dobson, Matilda Lowther, Neelam Johan and Callum Ball. The group poses for Mario Testino in the designs of Christopher Bailey including laces, cashmere and a pastel color palette.
Burberry’s Check Fight – Along with its famous trench coats, British luxury brand Burberry is also well-known for its signature black, red and tan plaid pattern. But according to the Huffington Post, Chinese authorities think Burberry has not made enough use of the Haymarket Check in China for the past several years.
The Lubida factory, which has been known to sell counterfeits of Burberry bags, filed a complaint back in 2012 challenging Burberry’s exclusive rights to the pattern. The British label has since appealed the decision and for now have sole rights to the famous checks, but if the court rules against them, Burberry “inspired” prints can be legally sold in China.
Cara in Pastels – A model who has been having a fantastic year, Cara Delevingne, lands yet another cover with the January-February 2014 edition of Numero Tokyo. The British beauty wears a pastel lace top and metallic skirt from English luxury label Burberry Prorsum in the image photographed by Sofia & Mauro. Cara recently walked in Burberry’s spring-summer 2014 show in London earlier this year.
Holidays with Burberry – Fashion brand Burberry gets into the Christmas spirit with a new campaign called, “Burberry with Love”. The new video and print ads feature the theme of gift giving and holiday cheer. On its site, Burberry.com, the British label offers gift suggestions for a stylish take on the Christmas season.

Burberry Days in Long Beach – Photographer Della Bass captures new face Paula in FGR’s latest exclusive shot along the beach. With art direction by Leah Esposito, the dark-haired beauty wears a wardrobe of all Burberry Prorsum coats paired with separates from the likes of Michael Kors, Theyskens’ Theory and Joie styled by Helen Barbieri. Hair stylist Kristi Wilczo and makeup artist Manami Ishikawa create Paula’s windswept tresses and understated beauty.
Burberry’s English Roses – The spring 2014 collection from Burberry Prorsum was dubbed “English Rose”, and the outing of pretty pastels and romantic floral embellishments explained the name perfectly. Creative chief officer Christopher Bailey gave the Burberry woman a soft and feminine wardrobe of cashmere, lace, suede and silk with a color palette of rosy pink, mint, mauve and periwinkle blue. The trench coat was updated this season with crystal adornments in circular shapes. Pencil skirts and slouchy jackets in boyish shapes also made an appearance on the runway.
