BURBERRY UNVEILS FLAGSHIP BEIJING STORE

LUXURY UK clothing brand Burberry launched its flagship Beijing store yesterday with a fashion show and concert in the Chinese capital, including a digital display of Burberry’s classic trench coats and checked umbrellas. The company expanded its operations in China last year by taking control of its franchised stores in the country, in a £70m deal which it said could boost earnings by almost 10 per cent.
