Burberry’s Special Edition Rain-Themed Collection—Redundant?

Leonora Epstein / April 29, 2010

Burberry just launched a small, limited-edition collection based on the theme of rain (April showers, more specifically). The range includes Haymarket checked rain boots, printed umbrellas, trench coats, and a whole mess of small accessories. We have to laugh for a second because if this special line is rain-themed, then what was everything else Burberry produced before it? Just OK weather trenches? Sun-brellas? Swamp-wading boots? Because those all seem like items we’d love to use … in the rain. Just sayin’. [L.A. Times]
