Designer Take – Burberry

Burberry – Exclusive second hand designer wear at 2nd Take 

2nd Take Burberry second hand designer clothes online


It was the classic trench coat that first put this historic English fashion house on the map, but these days the brand is just as easily identifiable for its famous Burberry Tartan.

Few could have predicted Burberry’s staying power when it was first launched in 1856. Thomas Burberry was only 21 year old at the time he opened his first Burberry store. Even fewer would have believed that, after all this time, a 155 year old fashion house could still be named as one of the top 100 global brands of 2011. If you want in on the Burberry buzz, visit the 2nd Take Online Store today or pop into our retail store in Sea Point, Cape Town for your exclusive second hand designer wear today. 

Famous people in Burberry’s world

Since the 20th century, Burberry has designed trench coats for well known names like Roald Amundsen (the first man to reach the South Pole), Polar explorer Ernest Shackelton and George Mallory who summited Mount Everest.

In recent years, the brand has managed to stay relevant by becoming a favourite of celebrities across the board – from rappers to royals. Names like Kate Moss, Agyness Deyn, Kate Middelton and George Craig have all been spotted rocking their Burberry classics. Today, it is Harry Potter star Emma Watson that is the face being charged with taking Burberry into the future.


The focus of the Burberry brand has definitely been extended way beyond trench coats to include other brands underneath the Burberry umbrella. The original brand is Burberry Prorsum – a luxurious and high fashion product. The sub brands are: Burberry London – focusing on business attire, Burberry Brit – the casual collection and Burberry Sport – for those who like to sweat in style!


What makes Burberry even more interesting?

Thomas Burberry did not only launch the fashion house Burberry, he was also the founder of the tightly woven fabric gabardine in 1879.
