Burberry Limited Edition Trench Coats For Liberty Of London

If there is a day you intend to buy a trench coat, only one name should ever come to your mind...Burberry:-) This waterproof outerwear is synonymous with the Burberry brand. Founder Thomas Burberry first designed the trench coat for the British Military in 1914 and also invented the garbardine fabric. Hence to cut the long story short, Burberry trench coats go back a long way and has remained one of the most iconic clothing design to date.

These limited edition Burberry Trench Coats For Liberty are made exclusively in Liberty's deep purple for women and black for men. They are individually numbered pieces (1 to 25) with a tag created by creative director, Christopher Bailey. They are also lined with black and purple Burberry iconic check which I love. A sophisticated mix of hues that will ensure timeless appeal.

As only 25 pieces are produced, get ready to 'camp' outside Liberty if you want to be one of the exclusive 25 people to own these trench coats:-P Now that's what I call genuine limited edition. (Shame on LV for their limited edition which probably runs in thousands:-P)

The trench coats are priced at £650 and will be available exclusively at Liberty from 18 September 2009 to coincide with the launch of London Fashion Week.

While we are still on the topic of trench coats, Liberty of London also stock a very lightweight and practical packable version, which is ideal for people on the go, especially in view of London's unpredictable English weather or even tropical Singapore's. Get yours at Liberty for £350:-P You now have no excuse not to stay dry and stylish at all times!

25 pieces? Good luck with that. I bet some would buy them just to sell them on ebay.

trench coats are my frustration. I haven't seen anything that fits me well. even the slim fit ones from Burberry are still big.

ugh. wait, I'll just call Christopher Bailey. Maybe he can squeeze me into his tight schedule and make me a custom one.
