Burberry have released their Christmas campaign this morning entitled 'The Tale of Thomas Burberry'. It's a three-minute trailer written by Matt Charman and directed by Asif Kapadia.
Domhnall Gleeson plays Burberry, with Sienna Miller taking the role of his mother's children and Lily James the pilot Betty Dawson, whom are both fictionalised characters.
Burberry's chief creative and chief executive Christopher Bailey stated "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 trench coat- in our own words. The film we have made is a brief gilmpse inspired by his full and extraordinary life, which threaded its way through the twentieth century in all its tumultuous highs and lows".
Adding "To do justice to his 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 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".
This short has reignited our crush on Domhnall and we're hooked, we want this to be made into a full film!
