The Burberry ads have moved from the beach to the studio this AW season at Burberry. Mario Testino is behind the camera and the models are not all of the usual suspects from seasons past, but a mix of models, actors and musicians. As the boys walk in Milan this weekend for the following SS12 season, fashion never sleeps, as they say, the new AW11 campaign is released.
The focus is on the traditional outerwear in the dusky colours of caper, juniper, mustard and clove. Jane Shrimpton portraits were the guiding inspiration for the team and this is evident in the pictures, especially of the girls.
My favourites are the burnt oranges, olive green and tan combinations. Simple, yet highly sumptuous. Fast forward to Autumn and take shelter in one of the double volume coats, or ask the the collection be brought forward as apparently we have had our summer.
