Burberry just premiered their new holiday campaign video, ‘The Tale of Thomas Burberry,’ featuring Sienna Miller Lily James, Domhnall Gleeson and Dominic West, and it is amazing! We’re obsessed with the short film and it’s getting us so excited for the holidays! What do you guys think of the video?
We are obsessed with this new Burberry holiday campaign which was written by Matt Charman and directed by Asif Kapadia. ‘The Tale of Thomas Burberry’ comprises a three-minute cinematic trailer, which reimagines key events that have shaped the company’s history and values.
Domhnall Gleeson stars as Burberry founder Thomas Burberry, Sienna Miller, 34, stars as Thomas’s fictional first love, and Lily James, 27, stars as pilot Betty Dawson, a fictionalised character inspired by the real life achievements of Betty Kirby- Green, who broke the world record in 1937 for a return flight from England to Cape Town in an aeroplane named ‘The Burberry’.
Christopher Bailey, Burberry Chief Creative and CEO, said in a statement, “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 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.”
