British fashion brand has presented this year’s star-studded Christmas ad.
Burberry has created a cinematic short film celebrating a fictionalised history of its founder Thomas Burberry.
The glossy three-minute story features British actors like Domhnall Gleeson, Sienna Miller, Dominic West and Lily James.
Christopher Bailey, chief creative and chief executive of Burberry, said: “This Christmas, as we celebrate our 160th anniversary we wanted to tell the story of Thomas Burberry – pioneer, inventor, innovator, and the man behind the iconic trenchcoat – in our own words. The film we have made is a brief glimpse inspired by his full and extraordinary life, which threaded its way through the history of the 20th century in all its tumultuous highs and lows.”
