The Burberry Check – From Trench Coats to Sunglasses
Founded in 1856, Thomas Burberry had brought his idea and dream to life by designing the ultimate piece of outerwear that could be worn all seasons. His goal was to create something innovative yet extremely beautiful. Today, we recognise Burberry for its luxury goods and the iconic beige trench coats and macs. Burberry became a household name thanks to the adventurers, aviators, cartographers and mountain climbers who always chose to wear Burberry outerwear during their expeditions.
Though the company produces accessories and other clothing garments outerwear still remains at the heart of this British brand. High-quality goods, innovation, and style are at the core of not only their ready-to-wear collections but also the eyewear collection. Launched in 2006, Burberry sunglasses are inspired the brand’s British identity and signature icons: the check and quilting patterns, and the equestrian knight logo.
All of the sunglasses models have an elegant British glamour appeal; these frames are perfect for those who appreciate practical and simplistic beauty. The sun collection contains many different styles; from the classic aviator style to the modern graphic squared style. Most of the eyewear is branded with the company’s trademark double-check pattern. If you’re more daring with your eyewear and want avant-garde style designer sunglasses, go for the oversized round or oversized square model with stitching effect on the edges of the frame and frame arms. Complete with gradient lenses, these luxury sunglasses really are worth every penny!
The Burberry Sunglasses Collections
To pay homage to the Burberry heritage, the brand launched a new range of aviator sunglasses in 2012. Burberry chose British musicians including George Craig, Marika Hackman, Samuel Fry and The Daydream Club from the UK to promote their latest aviator sunglasses collection.
The 2014 collection is inspired by the Prorsum runway: oval frames in muted tones, black and white or vivid colours with hand-applied with crystals and lace designs. Celebrity admirers of the Burberry sunglasses include Academy Award nominee Jennifer Lawrence.
