A Distinctly British Style
With an inimitable British edge, Burberry eyeglasses are a celebration of the brand’s enduring legacy.
From mountain tops to catwalks
Founded in 1856, the brand was initially designed to provide practical outerwear for explorers and adventurers and it would continue to be this way for the next 60 years. The brand made clothes for arctic expeditions, for the military (the world-famous trench was designed for the trenches of the First World War), and pilots; it wasn’t until the 70s and 80s that it began to become the global fashion name that it is today, after deciding to diversify its offering and becoming adopted by the stars of the time.
In 2018, a real revolution happened to the brand, in the form of Riccardo Tisci. Tisci as Creative Director has driven the brand to be ‘more’: more luxe, more fashion, more Burberry. He has introduced a new TB monogram, a tribute to the brand’s founder Thomas Burberry; he has re-interpreted the arm structure of glasses, turning it upside down laterally to make it suitable for all wearers; and he has launched the ReBurberry Edit, an eco-friendly arm to the business which even includes a range of eyewear crafted from pioneering bio-based acetate.
Eyewear for the discerning dresser
Each pair of Burberry glasses reflects their creativity, heritage and innovation. The collections include sculpted, curved metal designs, flattering oversized square frames and timeless rectangular frames in tortoiseshell. Frames are constructed from acetate or lightweight metal and feature details such as the logo etched in the temples or Burberry check ‘lapel’ temples. Many frames are unisex to allow for a blending of styles whatever your gender.
Make your style about adventure, just like these glasses were designed for.
