Burberry reveals its star-studded new advertising campaign
You can always rely on Burberry to uncover the British stars of the future, and the cast of its new autumn/winter 2011 advertising campaign is no exception.
Starring a bevy of budding actresses, cutting-edge musicians and models, the campaign was inspired by ‘iconic British portraits’ and the luxury brand’s own archives from the ‘60s featuring shots of Jean Shrimpton, according to Burberry Chief Creative Officer, Christopher Bailey.
The campaign will change each month throughout the season and feature different homegrown faces and themes.
Shot in London by acclaimed photographer, Mario Testino, the glamorous June line-up includes upcoming actress Felicity Jones – whose CV already boasts Brideshead Revisited and Cemetary Junction – alongside models Cara Delevingne, Jourdan Dunn, Edie Campbell, Amber Anderson and 16-year-old Molly Smith.
And for the boys, Morecombe-born musician Matthew Whitehouse – lead singer of indie band The Heartbreaks – joins models Thomas Penfound, Johnny George and Jake Cooper in the line-up, as well as Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides actor and definite ‘one-to-watch’ Sam Claflin, who will appear alongside Twilight star Kristen Stewart in next year’s fairytale remake, Snow White and the Huntsman.
