Burberry launches its first evolving ad campaign for Spring Summer 2011, where new British cast members will be revealed each month.
The campaign showcases the high impact global monthly flow of new Burberry product and accompanying innovative content, used seamlessly and consistently across all of the brand’s online, offline and in store touch points.
Shot on Brighton beach by Mario Testino and launching with British models Cara Delevingne and Jacob Young, the campaign reinforces the brand’s synergy with British landscapes, weather and emerging talent.
The campaign shows the full breadth of the Burberry offering – Burberry Prorsum, Burberry London, Burberry Brit and Burberry accessories, all of which can be explored on Burberry.com with multi-faceted content experiences.
“We wanted to create a dynamic, evolving campaign that reflects the diversity of our broad global consumer, revealing new British cast members each month, all with their own identity, embodying the different attitudes of the Burberry guy and girl. We shot the campaign on Brighton beach to celebrate the great British outdoors and our history of supporting emerging talent and to bring to life the emotion behind protection from the elements.’’
Christopher Bailey, Burberry Chief Creative Officer.
