British luxury fashion house Burberry was founded in 1856 by 21-year-old Thomas Burberry. The brand's distinctive red, camel and black check was introduced as a lining to its famed trench coats in the 1920s, later appearing on a variety of products from scarves to umbrellas to luggage. Burberry currently operates 7 brands - high fashion line Burberry Prorsum, Burberry London, Burberry Brit, Burberry Sport, Thomas Burberry, Burberry Black Label and Blue Label (available only in Hong Kong and Japan) - all overseen by Chief Creative Officer Christopher Bailey, who joined the house in 2001.
