Featuring a star-studded cast including Sienna Miller, Lily James and Domhnall Gleeson (Bill Weasley from Harry Potter and lovable geek from our fave rom-com About Time) as Thomas Burberry himself, this three-minute cinematic trailer for the brand’s festive season campaign directed by Asif Kapadia will absolutely draw you in.

The premise?

“The film is the story of Thomas Burberry – it’s the story of Burberry the man, a person who created a fabric, which created the label, which has become a huge fashion brand. The idea of the film was to show where it all began.” – Asif

The film starts of with Thomas’s invention of the weatherproof fabric gabardine, to him meeting the love of his life, to dressing the military (soldiers in Burberry trench coats? Très chic!), and outfitting polar explorers and pilots. Despite it being only a short trailer, you could really get a sense of the struggles, pain, love and loss he went through. Our verdict? The visual details, the music, the gorgeous wardrobe and above all, the acting was perfect; such a shame this isn’t a real movie – we’d pay good money to see it!

Watch it now and get ready to be blown away!
