Sub-Burberry

The exterior of the Burberry Outlet store in London

British super-brand Burberry needs no introduction. Who doesn’t want to be a Burberry girl/boy or to be with a Burberry girl/boy (I’m looking at you in particular Rosie, Cara and Eddie)? The new flagship opened in London last week and I visited on Saturday: I can’t tell you how incredible it is. I can tell you that it’s so much more than just a shop, it’s an entire experience, and surely the future of retail.

However astoundingly beautiful and all-encompassing it is, it’s also too luxurious for my bank balance, so yesterday I made my first pilgrimage (of many) to the Burberry Factory Outlet in East London. I’d heard mixed things but the boy and I were both blown away and became genuinely giddy with excitment. It’s much bigger than we expected, there’s a great range of sizes, and the prices are very significantly reduced.

These buckle-up brogues came close to being adopted by me; they were just £94(!) but a size too small and although they almost, almost fit they were admittedly that bit too tight…yeah I’m still regretting leaving those behind. I was also tempted by a Burberry Brit duffle coat with an RRP of £495 and an outlet price of £149 (the only thing stopping me was that I’ve just shelled out for a new camera, I got bills to pay y’all).

Surprisingly they also stock the famous trench. Ok so it’s not cheap; most were about £600-700 but that’s still a worthy saving on the usual £1000-ish price tag.

All in all, it’s probably the best outlet I’ve ever been to and I’ll definitely be re-visiting. If you can’t make it to London there’s also a Burberry outlet at Cheshire Oaks and of course there’s always everyone’s favourite online discount store, The Outnet.

    There was a Burberry outlet near my Uni and though it was tiny, I loved going in to fawn over the trenches and handbags. This London one looks amazing though! xoxo

    There is also the Carhartt factory outlet just around the corner and down the road so if you like both brands it is worth checking them out together.
