Even a usual trench coat costs you about $2000. Talking about their evening dresses, it starts with $3000 on average. However, what has made this brand into this list is its newly arrived trench coat for a whopping $36,047. It is made from genuine peacock feathers. Anna Wintour (Editor of American Vogue) wore it recently and walked at a ramp. The coat came into controversies for it has killed many peacocks just to make this dress. This peacock coat was designed by a well known designer – “Christopher Bailey”. He was so happy after designing this coat. Unfortunately, an investigation from Daily Mail claimed that the coat’s origin isn’t what Burberry usually has. And, their website, in which this coat was put up for sale — claimed that the garment used peacock feathers (killed and imported from India). So, I am not sure if you will still be able to find this item on their site. It is illegal to own one.
