Following the news that Christopher Bailey will leave Burberry at the end of 2018, the great British brand has released a collection of seasonal pieces, and a blockbuster campaign starring Cara Delevingne and Matt Smith to accompany it.
Captured by Alasdair McLellan, the portraits and accompanying 30-second video, feature Burberry veteran Delevingne and newcomer Smith larking about in laminated trench coats, Fair Isle knitwear and ornate jewellery – all to the soundtrack of “Always On My Mind” by Pet Shop Boys.
Of his campaign debut, the former Doctor Who star said: “Burberry has always been a brand that I have admired, from the football stands to the macs on the runway. Delevingne, whom Smith dubs a “fashion heavyweight”, thanked “the creative genius and my dear friend Christopher Bailey for involving me in this and all the incredible projects over the years.”
Look out for the new Burberry clan charms – the perfect luxury stocking filler – and Delevingne’s harmony in the video below.
