Cara Delevingne seems to be everywhere lately, and we are 100% not complaining. Ever since her return to the spotlight, she’s picked up gigs as the face of Dior, and Jimmy Choo. And now, she stars alongside British actor Matt Smith (Doctor Who) in a series of images captured for Burberry.
The photos, shot by British photographer Alasdair McLellan, are accompanied by a video of Matt and Cara to the sound of ‘Always On My Mind’ by Pet Shop Boys. P.S. It’s a great opportunity to see Cara sing!
As Cara mentioned in an Instagram post, the campaign celebrates the British character and charm of Burberry’s new Christmas Gift Collection, which debuts in store and online today.
The Burberry Christmas Gift Collection
Is there a fashion brand more quintessentially British than Burberry? The classic clash of fabric, pattern and colour, signature trench coats in tartan and checks, mixed together with bags and scarves in splashes and stripes come together in a celebration of British character and charm. The collection will be available online and in stores from November 2017.
1. Coats and Trenches
The classic outerwear shapes get an updated twist for the Christmas season! You’ll find the laminated women’s trenches in more vibrant colours (like the stunning red Cara sports) and embellished with unexpected details, while the men’s car coats are lined with tartan. Kids aren’t left out of the loop either– the signature made-in-England gabardine trench coat is now available in classic colours for children, so the whole family can look adorably matchy-matchy!
2. Knits and Scarves
The knitwear pieces of the collection feature British fabrics, techniques and references that can be mixed and clashed in bold, colourful and distinctive combinations. And just for this Christmas season, the new Burberry Bandana in block colour and Vintage Check. Gloves, beanies and socks are also available, which can be artfully mismatched to create unique combinations.
Our favourite bag of the collection has got to be The Giant, the supersized reversible unisex tote, now in a charming tartan and checks finish. The bold primary shades, finished with flashes of neon, make for an eye-grabbing piece. The DK88 also gets an update in colourful combinations, from high-shine metallic to carefree splashes of paint, and in new mini and micro sizes. The Patchwork is refreshed in an eclectic mix of fabric and palettes. And the all new Doodle tote, crafted from printed canvas and leather trim, features playful scribble designs dreamt up in the Burberry design studio that celebrate free-spirited art and British weather.
To finish your Christmas look, Burberry’s Christmas accessories’ selection includes a variety of fun creature accessories, wallets in playful and paint-splashed prints, and stocking fillers. The Burberry Clan charms are available in a cast of characterful animal key charms, from a wily fox to a black sheep, uniquely crafted from off-cuts found in the Burberry design studio for the perfect amount of quirky British kitsch.
