British actors Cara Delevingne and Matt Smith appear in a portfolio of images captured for Burberry by British photographer Alasdair McLellan.
‘I am so proud to share this new shoot I did with Alasdair McLellan and Matt Smith. Thank you to the creative genius and my dear friend Christopher Bailey for involving me in this and all the incredible projects over the years. It has been and always will be a joy to work with you and the Burberry family.’
‘Burberry has always been a brand that I have admired. From the football stands to the macs on the runway. The chance to work with Christopher, who with his design and vision, has contributed so much to a brilliant British brand and indeed left a footprint not only on fashion but British culture itself, is a huge privilege. Working with both Alasdair McLellan and Cara Delevingne, two fashion and
creative heavyweights, was also very appealing, and made partnering for this campaign an easy choice for me.’
The images are accompanied by a 30-second video of Matt and Cara to a soundtrack of ‘Always On My Mind’
by Pet Shop Boys, also captured by Alasdair. Cara first started working with Burberry in 2010 and this marks Matt’s first project with Burberry and first ever fashion campaign.
