'At the core of what we are doing at Burberry is a passion for the house to become an identity and a lifestyle - one that transcends barriers and is inclusive to all.  This campaign explores the many facets of British culture and how they coexist. Together, Danko and Nick celebrate the importance of self-expression and identity through their own distinct lenses.'Riccardo Tisci, Burberry Chief Creative Officer Burberry unveils its Autumn/Winter 2019 campaign, reuniting photographers Danko Steiner and Nick Knight to explore and represent the breadth of who Burberry appeals to. 

The campaign showcases the refined and the classic alongside the more relaxed and free, expressing two distinct viewpoints of one collection.   The cast includes Gigi Hadid, Irina Shayk, Fran Summers, Sora Choi, He Cong and Alexis Chaparro, alongside Freja Beha Erichsen, Finn Rosseel, Shayna McNeill, Anna Ross, Kacie Hall, Heejung Park, Mammina Aker, Xie Yunpeng, Junior Vasquez, Benji Arvay and Maxwell Annoh who all make their Burberry ad campaign debuts.   Burberry's Autumn/Winter 2019 collection, Tempest, celebrates the contrasts and contradictions in British culture and weather, from the structured to the rebellious, evolving the cues and codes first set out in Riccardo's debut collection for Burberry last year.

For Autumn/Winter 2019, silhouettes are refined through a contemporary lens. Trench and car coats are transformed with shearling and Scottish-woven cashmere scarf details, and English-fit suits worn with double-collar shirts.

 

Classic styles are disrupted with injections of youth: tailored blazers with track tops and quilts; double-waist track pants; reconstructed rugby, polo and football-shirt dresses. British maritime traditions inspire striped wool duffle coats, pea coats, silk shirts with shell buttons, and pleated skirts.

Burberry codes are explored through a palette of beige, new iterations of the Thomas Burberry Monogram and bold interpretations of the Icon stripe. Fabrics include cotton gabardine, silk crepe de chine, wool jacquards, tailored neoprene, faux fur and fluid jersey - elevated with hand-appliquéd crystal and bottle cap details.

Two new signature bags - Lola and Title - feature alongside key shapes from Riccardo's debut collection. The Society is also updated in extra-large and portrait styles for men.

'I have been thinking a lot about England as a country of contrasts, from the structured to the rebellious and free, and I wanted to celebrate how these elements coexist.

My first season for Burberry was about starting to develop my alphabet for the house, it was about identifying new letters and new codes. And now, I'm starting to put these letters together to begin writing my book here, to form the first chapter for a new era at Burberry.'
