Today, Burberry released their highly anticipated short film, The Tale of Thomas Burberry: 160 Years in the Making. The short, which runs just over three-and-a-half minutes tells the story of the British brand's eponymous creator. From the trenches of war, to Burberry's now symbolic trench coat, expect to be immersed in a world where the characters are as significant as the styles being fashioned. Starring Domhnall Gleeson as Thomas Burberry, the film also features Sienna Miller, Lily James and Dominic West.

Speaking about Thomas Burberry, Burberry's Chief Creative and Chief Executive Officer Christopher Bailey said: "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 twentieth century in all its tumultuous highs and lows. To do justice to this story, we turned to a team of truly great twenty-first century British talent: Asif Kapadia, a director whose work I admire enormously, and a cast of our brightest and our best actors: Domhnall Gleeson, Sienna Miller, Dominic West and Lily James. We feel very proud to be sharing The Tale of Thomas Burberry this Christmas — his spirit and his vision are still at the heart of everything we do at Burberry today."
