But aside from the brand's strength and the innovative designs Bailey presents each season, the house is still iconic. Namely for the greatest piece of clothing ever invented - the trench coat. It doesn't get more classic than the trench (which was actually invented as part of military uniforms to keep warm during the trench warfare of World War I). It's the ultimate piece of clothing that every woman (and man for that matter) should have in their closet, even if it doesn't include the tell-tale Burberry check inside the lining. To get into a British state of mind, here is Burberry's most current ad campaign for Fall/Winter 2012. The black and white shots were taken on the streets of London by Mario Testino. Notice, the photos are not lacking in the trench department.
