Seeing as we've already spotted celebrity after celebrity donning the sleek leather style, we know it's going to sell like hotcakes.

The iconic Burberry trench coat is and always has been a staple in the fashion girls wardrobe. Think about how stylish (and timeless) the coat looks every you see a style setter tie the belt around her waist. This bag is meant to give you the same kind of glamour.
This new It bag has a distinct shape influenced by the lapels and soft movements of the classic trench that's immediately recognizable to those in the know.
