Burberry is most famous for its Trench Coat (which is also iconic in its own right).
The scarf is also, maybe because it’s more useful to me in Nigerian weather than the coat. It’s stylish and spots Burberry’s distinctive tartan pattern
5. Hermes Birkin Bags:

For me Hermes’ Birkin Bag wins the day. It’s one of my most coveted fashion pieces.
Not to be confused with Kelly bags, every one of the Hermes Birkin bag is handmade. To get one, you have to get on a waiting list which most times is closed.

A lot of ladies spot the fake, that’s why you see it around a lot. The fake can even cost you as much as $1000 dollars on eBay. The authentic Hermes Birkin bag sells for about $11000 at last check!
