Billy Elliot-esque Burberry campaign
British brand deserves an encore
That festive feeling is creeping in and ever more so, now that we've seen the newly-launched campaign by Britain's design powerhouse, Burberry. Burberry's christmas campaigns are a holiday hot spot. Think last year's dance-filled "From London with Love" film to this year's directional Billy Elliot inspired campaign.
"Billy Elliot is an incredible film full of so much joy and energy, so it was a real thrill and a great honour to be able to celebrate its 15 year anniversary through our festive campaign," said Christopher Bailey, Burberry's Chief Creative and Chief Executive Officer. "It was also a huge privilege to work with such amazing and iconic British talent — the cast are quite simply some of the biggest names in film, music and fashion and it was so much fun working with them all to make this special film."
The campaign was shot by legendary photographer Mario Testino while the 3-minute video features a star-studded cast of supermodels, musicians and film icons.
Former Burberry favourites Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Naomi Campbell make an appearence, as well as musicians James Bay, George Ezra and Sir Elton John who wrote the music for Billy Elliot the Musical. James Corden, Julie Walters and Burberry's favourite boy, 13-year-old Romeo Beckham aka Billy also makes a return. Buro 24/7 Middle East have a sneak peek at the campaign right here...
