Bellevue + Burberry = A Match Made In Retail Heaven
Burberry, the brand that seems thoroughly through with overexposing their ubiquitous Nova Check, is opening a store at Bellevue Square by the end of the summer. You know, I've come to appreciate Christopher Bailey's efforts to revive the brand. He's done a lot to make the brand a lot more relevant than it had ever been, including introducing some real handsome bags and endless new iterations of trenches and coats, including a few that spawned countless imitations at fast fashion chains. The 5,300 square foot store will be on the first floor, near Nordstrom. To celebrate, admire Eddie Redmayne, actor and one of the many handsome chaps featured in the Spring ad campaign.
