It’s common knowledge that fashion trends recycle every now and then. 2017 in particular has been a major throwback year, with velour tracksuits, retro sneakers and hand-me-down designer bags making their glorious return to the scene. Celebrities and street style influencers alike have also rediscovered their love for one of the most classic brands of all time — Burberry.
Thanks largely to its buzzy collaboration with Gosha Rubchinskiy, the storied British fashion house has made its signature check pattern in again. The brand’s September 2017 collection saw the revival of the iconic print, which covered a range of pieces from skirts and trench coats, to caps and oversized tote bags. The design is bold and instantly recognizable, and is perfect for anyone who’s into retro aesthetics.
Said collection is now available at Burberry stores, but we’ve also scouted a few second-hand alternatives that wouldn’t break the bank. Read on to find out where you can shop vintage Burberry online.
