Burberry Spring Summer 2012

We just spied the Burberry Spring Summer 2012 advertising campaign featuring the actor Eddie Redmayne (those freckles are too cute) and actress/model Cara Delevingne. Together the two reflect the different facets and attitudes of the Burberry guy and girl, young, edgy, relaxed and ever so urbane.

The pieces showcased come from the Burberry Prorsum, Burberry London, Burberry Brit and Accessories collections.

Shot in London by Mario Testino with creative collaboration from the designer Christopher Bailey the campaign reinforces the brand’s heritage in all weatherwear, including trench coats and the new “must have” parkas.

The campaign is witty and relaxed and we particularly like the woven leather details on the parka sleeves, belts and cute caps. As predicted the high waisted skirts are prevalent emphasizing a feminine silhouette against the chunky parkas and coats. The oversized and very functional whipstiched tote bags are blessed with textural detail and contrasting accent colours and the smaller clutches follow suit.

Burberry is the quintessential British label and one of the most innovative and forward thinking…. But we would like to ask is; Cara wearing only the trench? Well it is Spring Summer 2012 after all.

Enjoy the video.
