Great Burberry Accessories for Christmas

Posted by // December 6th, 2012 // Fashion No Comments »

Burberry, the luxury British fashion house, is considered one of the most valuable brands in the world. Founded by Thomas Burberry in 1856, the company is best known for its tartan patterns which are used in various products. Burberry’s most famous item of clothing is the trench coat, created by Thomas Burberry himself during the Great War and copied throughout the industry.

It is a unique brand that appeals to both the upper and working classes of British society. One is just as likely to see a Burberry item of clothing on a football hooligan as they are on a member of the bourgeoisie. The brand has also attracted a younger audience thanks to advertising campaigns featuring popular British celebrities such as actress Emma Watson and models Kate Moss and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Burberry has two royal warrants from the British Royal Family, one from Queen Elizabeth II and the other from Charles, the Prince of Wales.

In recent years the brand has gained considerable success in markets such as Asia and North America which has seen its share price on the London Stock Exchange rise dramatically. With Christmas under a month away, we showcase some of the best Burberry items that your loved ones are currently wishing for…

This men’s watch comes under ‘The City’ collection and features a forty-two millimetre gold rose-plated face with a brown leather strap. Made in Switzerland with a mechanical movement there is an understated check design on the face. It is water resistant to fifty metres and offers date functionality on the right-hand side.

The folding umbrella below falls in the women’s section but could easily be used by fashion-conscious men who want a smart looking way to avoid the rain. An understated design featuring the iconic check print on the underside of the canopy finishes off the look. It is made from polyester to protect the user from getting wet.

This version of The Orchard bowling bag features the house check (the classic tartan design without the horse riding knight) in cotton twill with a leather trim. Polished metal features accentuate the feeling of luxury as does the ‘Made in Italy’ label. Measuring thirty-six by twenty-five centimetres with twelve centimetres of depth, the bag is perfect for days out and suitable for casual events.

These two silk scarves are an ideal gift for a woman’s Christmas stocking and would work well as a contrasting accessory to a thick winter coat. Both scarves are 190 centimetres long and can therefore be worn in a variety of different ways. They are made in Italy and are of course 100% silk.

The men’s wallet is made from soft grainy calf leather and features diamond-shaped card slots. Grosgrain lining completes the interior with the teal blue appearance distinguishing it from traditional black wallets. The wayfarer-style sunglasses is available in tortoise shell, black or white and is foldable for easy transport. It is made from acetate with scratch resistant lenses.
