Burberry Ladies Sunglasses$400 current bid
Description of the Item:
"The Burberry check was first used to line our raincoats in the 1920s, but it was the 1960s that saw it become the unmistakable Burberry signature we know today. When customers began asking specifically for the Burberry check - the evolution of our house code began.
In 1967, Jacqueline Dillemman - a buyer in our Paris store - had a flash of inspiration whilst preparing a fashion presentation for the British ambassador, Sir Patrick Reilly. She removed the check lining from a coat and used it to wrap luggage and create an umbrella cover. The check accessory was born.
