The digital tags can be scanned with a mobile device.
Once scanned, the tags prompt a short film to appear on your device that shows how that item was carefully made by hand. If you’re in Burberry’s flagship store in London, special mirrors on the walls in the store turn into screens that are able play the digital content when shoppers are trying the clothes on.
These special tags are a new technology developed by Burberry. Could this be the future of fashion retail?
