New Burberry Flagship in London Combines Technology and Heritage
After the iPhone 5 announcement earlier this week, technology and its rapid advancements are on our minds. As Apple continues to revolutionize mobile communication as we know it, iconic British brand Burberry is seeking to reinvent the shopping experience with its new opened flagship store, located on Regent Street in London.
After an extensive two year renovation, the 44,000-square-foot store has been revealed. In a once tony location that is now overrun with mid-market tourist attractions like Superdry, Burberry is set to bring back the luxe cache to the area.
While the decor generally reflects the aura of the old world that Burberry has come to be known for since its inception in 1856, satellite technology allows for livestreaming of events and runway collections. When a shopper holds an item up to the mirror, they will immediately be shown an image of said item as it appeared on the runway. To make things even easier and to minimize rummaging about the store for the size or color you desire, specialized iPads are carried by all sales associates.
