Here’s a Year in Review of one of my favourite and probably the most tech-savvy brand out there now, Burberry. Check out snippets of its element-filled fashion shows including extensive shots of its most recent Spring/Summer 2013 show, stylish ad campaigns featuring Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Gabriella Wilde, Jourdan Dunn, and Cara Delevingne among others, behind-the-scenes footage of its stores and production facilities, as well as its recently launched timepiece, The Britain.
This is Burberry Prorsum | Year in Review as directed by Trevor Undi. Wouldn’t it be great if more brands followed suit?
Burberry has unveiled its Autumn/Winter 2011 Ad Campaign for the month of October. Starring usual suspects Jourdan Dunn, Cara Delevingne, Edie Campbell, Thomas Penfound, Rob Pryor and Johnny George, the Burberry Autumn/Winter 2011 Ad Campaign October edition follows a Winter Storms theme in a black and white colour palette. Check out the full Burberry Autumn/Winter 2011 Ad Campaign October edition below.
In addition, Burberry has also released images of its Autumn/Winter 2011 Eveningwear collection. While Burberry is good at all other areas and has its fair share of celebrities donning its gowns for red carpet events, it is still a relatively small player when it comes to eveningwear –being mostly known for its heritage and of course its evergreen trench. That is one aspect I would like to see Burberry push for –the eveningwear market. Check out the Burberry Autumn/Winter 2011 Eveningwear collection below.

Burberry has just released images of Burberry Body, The Bottle and I must say The Bottle is unlike any other. It is a multi-faceted, iconic glass bottle with rose gold engraved check and made very slim such that the rose gold refracts the light and filters the rose gold colour throughout the bottle. The jewel-like design reflects the multi-faceted dimensions and layers of the Burberry brand. Interesting.
Burberry Body will be released on September 1st but Burberry Facebook fans will be able to exclusively sample the new Burberry Body fragrance. Burberry has developed a custom-made application allowing exclusive sampling directly via the brand’s Facebook page. The app also features exclusive content that will be continuously updated as soon as new content becomes available. An incredible initiative indeed. Just go to the Burberry Facebook Page, ‘like’ it and sign up to receive your sample of Burberry Body before the launch. It is also noted that Burberry has over 7.6 million Facebook fans, the largest Facebook fan page of any luxury fashion brand. Check out images of Burberry Body, The Bottle below.
For the month of July, Burberry releases three more images from its Burberry Autumn Winter 2011 ad campaign shot by Mario Testino. Jourdan Dunn takes a backseat in this one, while Edie Campbell and Cara Delevingne take centre stage with Milly Simmonds and Callum Turner in military shades. Burberry will be releasing images from the Burberry Autumn/Winter 2011 ad campaign periodically every month till December. Good strategy I reckon.
