Burberry’s chief creative officer, Christopher Bailey, was recognized by the Queen of England yesterday in a Member of the Order of the British Empire ceremony at Buckingham Palace. According to WWD, Bailey said he was both “honored and humbled” by the experience. He and his team definitely deserve it – from rain boots and luxurious scarves in the brand’s signature pattern to sophisticated fragrances and their oh-so-elegant classic trench, Burberry is still the epitome of style and class.
Just like Scott Schuman, who’s been immortalizing the Burberry trench in photographs of late his site thesartorialist.com, we adore Burberry’s famous trench, including this feminine pleated style. Alas, outerwear from Bailey’s brand can be pricey, so for something more affordable, we suggest a similarly stylish jacket from London Fog.
