Top Videos from Burberry – Between Trench Coat and Innovation

Burberry – The name Burberry immediately brings to mind the famous beige trench coat or scarf in the familiar check pattern. This is both the trademark and unique selling point of the British luxury company, making it one of the most recognizable companies in the world. In addition to English elegance, the label repeatedly presents itself with cool and unusual designs and is a source of excitement for celebrities such as Rihanna, Kate Moss and even the British Royals.

Tense story between highs and lows

The success story of the British company began in 1856 when the merchant Thomas Burberry founded his first textile shop, named after his surname, in Basingstoke, England. Burberry first attracted a lot of attention in 1880 when he developed a gabardine fabric that was at once robust, waterproof and breathable. He patented it and produced men’s capes which he sold on a large scale. Thus, in 1891, Thomas added another shop in the London district of Haymarket, which was the former flagship store. The business grew and grew, in 1920 the first stock exchange listing already took place. Four years later, the check pattern, which is still known worldwide today, was created. Initially, it was only used for the lining of jackets or the well-known trench coat and was worn by the British military during World War I. After Thomas Burberry’s death in 1924, his sons took over the business and expanded further into the USA, where they brought the brand to style icons like Audrey Hepburn. The assortment continued to grow, bags, accessories or fragrances were added. Unfortunately, however, after the sons sold the company in 1955, the business started to falter and experienced a small loss of image. From 2001 to 2018, Christopher Bailey took over the design department of Burberry and brought the company out of its trough – he completely turned the company around and made Burberry fashionable again. Especially today with Riccardo Tisco, Burberry is experiencing a real hype again, the Italian made sure that the British house had maximum sales with his street styles and Burberry has again reached the top of the fashion world.

Fashion shows between live music and technology

The fashion shows of the British fashion company Burberry are characterized primarily by technical features or functions, as well as unique live performances by well-known artists and exclusive guests of the fashion world. For example, Burberry was the first company to try out a so-called “See Now, Buy Now” function, offering customers the chance to order products directly in the live stream of the fashion show. Three of the most interesting fashion shows can be seen here.

Unique Rainbow fashion show in London

With his last show for Burberry, former chief designer Christopher Bailey once again demonstrated his enormous talent and at the same time set a huge signal for more tolerance and acceptance. He dedicated the collection and the show to three of the largest organizations fighting for LGBTQ rights worldwide. The venue was a huge hall in London, where the audience sat around the catwalk like at a football match. Everything was dark, just a few lamps swayed across the middle of the catwalk. The collection was characterized by the typical elegance of Burberry, as well as elements of the rainbow flag. At the end of the fashion show, spotlights formed a construct of rainbow colours, through which the models, first and foremost Cara Delevigne in a colourful fur coat, walked to the song “Don’t Leave Me This Way” by The Communards. The show was a great success and the audience was visibly enthusiastic.

“Fashion meets Technology” – Revolutionary Fashion Show

The Burberry Spring/Summer fashion show in London was a very special and revolutionary fashion show. Burberrry gave fashion fans who didn’t have a ticket for the show the exclusive chance to preview the collection on the company’s Snapchat account the day before. The show itself was classically spectacular, typical for Burberry – the British singer Alison Moyet sang live during the show. The performance was simultaneously recorded for Burberry’s own Apple Music Channel – making the British the first to have their own channel on the platform. The audience, cast with Kate Moss, Cara Delevinge, Sienna Miller or Anna Wintour visibly enjoyed the great show.

“Back to the past” – Tisci show from memories of his past

Burberry’s Autumn/Winter 2020 fashion show took place in a gigantic hall in London, supported by a spectacular and beautiful musical performance by musician Arca and pianist duo Katja and Marielle Labèque. With this show, the new chief designer Riccardo Tisci gives an insight into his memories and shows, especially with the collection, which inspirations he took from his past. Important people, important music or moments played a big and decisive role in his life that made him the person he is today. The top-class fashion audience could definitely feel his vibe and the fashion world was thrilled.

Successful and exploitative campaigns of the traditional house

The British fashion brand Burberry is known for its long and special advertising films. Behind all their campaigns there is always a message, or rather the idea to bring a significant story of the company to the viewer. This is how the company manages to inspire millions of viewers. Three of Burberry’s most interesting campaigns include the famous short film “The Tale of Thomas Burberry”, “From London with Love” and the Christmas campaign “What is Love?

A unique short film about Burberry founder Thomas Burberry

The Tale of Thomas Burberry was a Christmas campaign by the British company and was produced to depict and celebrate the extraordinary life of the founder Thomas Burberry. The clip stars the well-known actors Sienna Miller, Lily James, Domhnall Gleeson and Dominic West, whose roles present the life of the pioneer in an exciting way. The drama of his life in the 20th century with its highs and lows and the development of his company is shown. The campaign was primarily produced to draw attention to the spirit Thomas Burberry, who is also still present in the company.

From London with Love – Campaign with Beckham-Shoot Romeo Beckham

The campaign “From London with Love” is one of the most watched and best known commercials of the luxury brand Burberry so far. Inspiration of this video is the so-called golden age of cinematic musicals. The story of this play is the tragic love of a young couple during a theatrical setback in London. In the leading role of the campaign is, among others, Romeo Beckham, the second youngest son of the British mega stars David and Victoria Beckham, who is not here not for the first time in front of the camera for Burberry, but has already decorated several campaigns of the fashion house. This campaign embodies a special spirit of the company and is absolutely worth seeing.

What is Love? – Campaign to celebrate love

This special Christmas campaign from Burberry aims to spread and showcase the love of the holidays. In the video you can see a variety of people of different ages and looks. From very young children to senior citizens, from classically beautiful people to extraordinary looking people. The campaign celebrates the diversity of people and the boundless love that takes place beyond looks etc. Burberry definitely got a great message out with the campaign and certainly reached a lot of people.

Cara Delevinge, Lily James and Gigi Hadid love Burberry

The British luxury label and traditional house Burberry stands for absolute elegance and innovation at the same time. Celebrities like Cara Delevinge, Lily James or Gigi Hadid are big fans on the one hand, but also advertising faces of the labels. In creative campaigns, they present the spirit of the brand in an optimal way and inspire fans worldwide.

Cara Delevinge loves her hometown London

The campaign for Burberry’s new women’s fragrance “Her” features British supermodel Cara Delevigne in the leading role, who, as a born Londoner, embodies like no other the stylish and energetic spirit of the fragrance, which is dedicated to the city of London. In the campaign, the model can be seen in cool Polaroid shots in her hometown London, singing lines like “Maybe it’s because I’m a Londoner, That I love London so, Maybe it’s because I’m a Londoner, That I think of her wherever I go The campaign really makes you feel the vibe of the city and the scent!

Superstar Lily James as elegant brand ambassador for perfume

Lily James is a well-known British actress (Cinderella, Mama Mia) and is also the advertising face of the current campaign for the iconic women’s fragrance “My Burberry”. The 31-year-old, dressed in Burberry, is shown lying on a couch in various poses against a typical backdrop of houses in the West of London. This is, by the way, the first campaign to take place under the artistic direction of the new chief designer Riccardo Tisci. The elegance and cool chic that the fragrance represents are perfectly staged and presented in this campaign video.

Gigi Hadid for the new interpretation of the Burberry monogram

New Chief Designer Riccardo Tisco is responsible for a whole new interpretation of the Burberry monogram. It includes the two initials T and B, for Thomas Burberry and is already featured on several pieces of the new collections. To present this reinterpretation, Burberry grabbed the famous supermodel Gigi Hadid for her campaign, in which she presents both the women’s and men’s collections in a cool way in different cuts. The collection has many fans, but also opponents who would rather see Burberry’s traditional design. However, the new one is innovative and Tisci brings a new, younger clientele to the company.

Vivienne Westwood or London in LA – cool collaborations

Burberry is a brand that, compared to other high-fashion brands, does not rely so much on collaborations with other brands. Nevertheless, the label presented a very successful brand collaboration last year with the punk legend Vivienne Westwood. On the other hand, Burberry is very innovative and always creative when it comes to presenting its fashion – for example at an event in Los Angeles, where it brought the brand’s London vibe to the USA.

London in Los Angeles, California – James Cordon and the Beckhams are thrilled

This video does not show a typical brand collaboration, but a very special project of the British fashion company Burberry, which presented an exclusive capsule collection in the Californian dream city Los Angeles. Place of the event was the famous Griffith Observatory, high above the hills of LA. Surprise appearances by the famous English soldiers, dressed in red gear and huge black headgear, as well as a runway debut by “The Late Late Show” presenter James Cordon made this event extraordinary. There was also a small English garden in the middle of the Hollywood Hills, where British singers such as Clare Maguire, George Ezra or Tom Odell performed. Also the guests were top-class – many of the British guests like Anna Wintour, Cara Delevinge, Elton John, Rose Byrne or the Beckhams enjoyed this evening very much and could share a little bit of home style in the middle of the Californian metropolis.

Traditional house and punk icon – Unique collection

Two British fashion houses that could not be more different – Burberry, the elegant and luxurious fashion house with a long tradition and Vivienne Westwood, the eccentric fashion designer who is considered the queen of punk. The collection is inspired by Westwood’s iconic designs, with the classic double-breasted coat from the Fall/Winter 1992 collection or the mini kilt from the Anglomania 1993 collection. The aim of the collaboration is to celebrate the British style, with its punk approaches, but also the famous check pattern by Burberry. Riccardo Tisci has always been a big fan of fashion icon Vivienne Westwood and with his start at Burberry he saw the perfect opportunity to connect and work with her.

Christopher Bailey & Riccardo Tisci: Interesting Interviews

The two designers Christopher Bailey and Riccardo Tisci are both revolutionaries at Burberry. Bailey, who brought the company out of a crisis and Tisci, who is currently taking Burberry to a whole new level with his street styles. In two videos the two can be seen in short but exciting interviews.

Design legend Christopher Bailey about the famous trench coat

As iconic as Burberry’s famous trench coat is the designer Christopher Bailey, who brought the brand out of a low in the early 2000s and made it what it is today. For over 15 years he revolutionised the style of the house in his own way and had a huge success in the process. One thing that always remained the same, however, is the legendary trench coat, which has been in the range since the company started in 1856 and probably always will be. With Mr. Porter’s fashion magazine, the Briton spoke about the trench coat and why it is an absolute must-have in every wardrobe.

Elevator interview at Burberry Head Office – Riccardo Tisci and Models

Inspired by the well-known elevator pitch method, Burberry filmed an interview format for its YouTube channel in which all employees who enter the elevator are interviewed about Burberry and the show. Among others, chief designer Riccardo Tisci steps into the elevator and is interviewed about the show. However, he remains mysterious and does not reveal too much. Models of the show are also in the elevator and you might get first ideas how the show could look like. With this format Burberry definitely manages to build up tension before the fashion show and with this unique idea also provides entertainment.

Giorgio Armani – Watches, Perfume & Sportswear EA7

Giorgio Armani – A world-famous name behind which stands a man who has revolutionized the fashion world. He has taken elegance and classicism to a new level. Milan, the city of fashion, has become what it is today through his works. Starting with shop window decoration, soon half of Hollywood and numerous actors were dressed in their film sets. In the same way Armani made it into the sports sector and dressed the Italian team for the Olympic Games. In every imaginable field the brand has tried out and set high records. Whether make-up, fragrances, watches or (sports) fashion. Designs by Armani are true classics! In this article you will find out everything from the creation to the different sales areas.

History and facts about Giorgio Armani

Giorgio Armani was born in 1934 in Piacenza, Italy. He began to study medicine, but broke off his studies in the 3rd year of his apprenticeship because he realized that this was not his vocation. Together with his then life partner Sergio Galeotti he developed his career in the fashion industry. First as a window dresser, then as a designer in the Nino Cerrutti fashion house. While Armani designe, Galeotti sold his unique pieces to several department stores, which led to the start of his own business in 1975.

His career began at the age of 40 and after only 5 years he had his first breakthrough. At the beginning of the 1980s he equipped various Hollywood celebrities. In 1982 he was the first fashion designer after Christian Dior to be featured on the cover of Time Magazine and he launched his first perfume.

In addition to elegant clothing, Armani has also created sportswear, flight attendant uniforms for Alitalia, costumes and even food for special occasions. He set the trend in the 70s with bomber jackets, which still have cult status today. He has also ensured that Milan maintains its current status as a fashion city and has created revolting fashion shows with a mini-miI to avoid anorexic trends in the fashion industry.

Despite all his success, Giorgio Armani is a perfectionist who is very reflective and self-critical of his career and his shows. He calls himself a frustrating actor, producer and director of life, because by dressing several actors he discovered his love for film and would have loved to try himself out.

In the following video you can see his attitude towards life in relation to one of the numerous shows in Paris.

  • 1934 born in Piacenza, Italy
  • began to study medicine
  • dropout in the 3rd year of study
  • Then he was a window dresser, later a designer
  • 1975 founded “Armani” with the help of life partner Sergio Galeotti
  • Early 80s: Breakthrough
  • Elegant clothing, sportswear (EA7), flight attendant uniforms and even food he appropriated
  • Revolution: minimum BMI
  • Enhanced reputation of Milan through Armani

Perfume – Si, Aqua di Gio & She

Giorgio Armani’s perfumes are based on a very simple concept: in close collaboration with the most talented noses in the world, fragrances full of elegance and refinement are composed from the most precious ingredients. Some of them are inspired by the elements of nature, or they embody in perfection the perennial theme of seduction such as ‘Homage to the femininity of today’s woman’. The art of Giorgio Armani’s haute parfumerie is particularly evident in the luxurious, unique Armani Privé fragrance collections. They are particularly close to his heart because they best express his couturier’s art.

Si – classic perfumes

The naming of the perfume was very well thought out. Si means “yes” in Italian and it is exactly this open-minded, positive attitude that Armani wants to convey. A very feminine fragrance combination with a floral note of amber and patchouli. This perfume is by no means a fragrance for older ladies, but timeless and intended for the unforgettable appearance in everyday life. A fragrance that stays in your head. You can recognize Armani’s craftsmanship by the stylish and glamorous finish of the bottle, as well as the fragrance itself. Italian flair for a good price.

Here you can find the fragrances sorted by year of release:

  • Si Eau de Parfum (2013)
  • Si Intense (2014)
  • Si Eau de Toilette (2015)
  • Si Intense Limited Edition Night Light (2106)
  • Si Rose Signature (2016)
  • Si Le Parfum (2016)
  • Si Passione (2018)
  • Si Passione Limited Edition (2018)
  • Si Fiori (2019)

“Although Giorgio Armani’s women’s fragrance Si Fiori evolves into a sweet and feminine scent, the heart note is beautifully lightened. But the olfactory combination of patchouli, rose and oakmoss keeps the sweetness in check”.

Aqua di Gio

The perfume “Aqua di Gio” or the version for women “Aqua di Gioia” has been on the market for 25 years. 65% of those interviewed consider the smell to be good, while 30% consider it neutral. It is a fragrance that goes with everything. Whether it’s a rendezvous, an upscale opera visit or open-air concerts. The fragrance marketed by L’Oréal has a naturally delicate scent for the ladies. It should reflect untouched nature and landscapes. The refinement of mint and the interplay of jasmine blossom and cedar wood gives it that irresistible note.

The essence for men should again emphasize freedom of the elements water and wind. To achieve this, citrus fragrances are used in combination with delicate blossoms and spicy aromas such as oakmoss, amber, rosemary or musk. This gives the perfume a maritime masculine character, but it doesn’t sting too much in the nose. Nevertheless, the main components are fruity essences such as mandarin orange and bergamot.

EA7: The elegant sports brand

What is behind EA7? This sports brand has been on the market since 2004. In the beginning it was just an exclusive sports collection, but today it is a big hit! By mixing elegance and sportiness, Armani created a brand suitable for everyday use that stands out for its charm. 

How did it get that name? Giorgio Armani is an incredible fan of football. He really loves the club AC Milan and his close friend and favourite player Andrij Shevchenko wears the number 7, which gave him the inspiration for the name. Marketing has also been strategically invested in the sports world. For the Olympics and Paralymic Games, the complete wardrobe for the Italian team was designed.

Make-Up & Beauty – The Luminous Silk Foundation,

Armani has established itself in every area of fashion. For years they have also been a top brand in make-up and beauty. With their liquid foundation, the Luminous Silk Foundation, they won the InStyle’s Best Beauty Awards for 9 years in a row. In addition to the 40 shades for all skin types, the oil-free foundation provides a fresh and pleasant hold for the whole day. A light foundation with medium coverage for a natural look.

  • Light and comfortable with perfect grip
  • Fresh and perfect shine in the twinkling of an eye
  • 40 shades for all skin types and skin tones

“The Luminous Silk Foundation, the cult foundation from Armani Beauty, gives the skin perfect shine and a radiant complexion for more natural beauty.”

With its micro-fil technology, the foundation promises to combine highly effective pigments with a weightless texture, which is why it is celebrated by many celebrities and renowned make-up artists. Thanks to its low density, the complexion appears seamless and the skin radiant. The texture of the soft charmeuse silk inspired manufacturers to enhance and unify the Luminous Silk Foundation, so that the flawless finish with transparent to medium coverage is long-lasting.

Watches – Smartwatch, Armani Exchange & Ceramica Watch

Since 2004 Armani offers wristwatches for ladies and men. With precise accuracy and robust material the watches are worked on.  The cheapest product for “Armani watches” currently costs about 140 Euros, while the average price is about 235 Euros. Mostly the watches look very classic and elegant, which is why bright colours are not used. Silver and black are the standard colours, but in the meantime the trend colours rose gold and dark blue are becoming more and more common. Armani gives the license for the watches to Fossil and takes care of design, marketing and distribution itself

Men’s fashion in transition with new young designers

Again this year there will be newcomers who dare to go into the limelight and present their designs. According to insiders, the classics like jackets are being replaced by windbreakers and the whole style is becoming more casual and less severe. From whom we can expect such a fashion? These are our top 3 favorites:

  • Tourne de Transmission
  • Bobby Abley
  • Oliver Spencer

The classic style for every man

Of course, the classic style is still preserved in men. Well-known designers who have been in the business for years trust the fashion for the “real man” and rely on classic cuts and colors. Again, we already have our favorites, which we are sure that they remain true to their style this year:

  • Ben Sherman
  • John Lawrence Sullivan

Model measurements for catwalks and fashion shows

Fashion is always something special. Fashion lives on Being special! New fashion collections are regularly released by designers worldwide, every season. Not only major international fashion designers and retail chains are working. Even small fashion labels have to constantly present new designs and styles to their customers to gain their attention. So designers and fashion have to reinvent themselves time after time to stay interesting for consumers.

Shows in Milan, New York, Paris, Hong Kong and London

At the Fashion Weeks the new masterpieces are regularly presented. In Milan, New York, Paris, Hong Kong and London. In spring, summer, autumn and winter, people are always looking for new looks and trends. Almost all designers have one thing in common, they tailor their collections for tall, slender people as mentioned in every post to similar topics. The clothes are more elegant, fabrics unfold their full effect, everything looks more exclusive and high quality! Delicate figures make clothes and their possible price more expensive. Even if not all fashion brands work in this scheme, it’s the majority of the industry.

Dimensions for fashion show

Fashion shows and fashion presentations are subject to an unwritten standard. For female models, a dress size of 34 (maximum 34/36) with a height of 177-180 (176-181) cm is considered ideal at the beginning of the career. Your hip should be under 91cm. Men’s models usually have a clothing size of 48 (max 50/52) with a height of 185-192 cm. A tip here for men’s models: At the beginning of the career you should pay attention as a male model on a younger look. If you look too masculine in your early years as a model, you’ll quickly get a chance on jobs in the fashion industry and on casting. That’s why you should always go to Castings with a shaved beard as a male model in the first years.

Measure yourself!

These are the measurements points for your first modeling agency application. Take care, that you are totally honest. More about: Take your own measurements for agencies, castings and jobs.
