Burberry Clothing A/W 2009 Ad Campaign


Christopher Bailey says: “This Autumn/Winter campaign was shot here in Westminster, a wonderfully historic part of London and the home of our new global headquarters Horseferry House.

I wanted the images to represent both the rich history and the modernity of the Burberry brand whilst at the same time reflecting a quiet beauty, timelessness and strength that is particularly significant today.

Having known and admired the lovely Emma Watson for quite some time, she was the obvious choice for this campaign who like the images she fronts, has a classic beauty a great character and a modern edge.

Emma’s charm, intellect and brilliant sense of fun made the whole shoot feel like a picnic on the Thames.

The five guys of the campaign, Tom, Charlie, Douglas, Nick and Tom come from the world of film, music and art and give the pictures a true British attitude

I believe that these iconic images shot by Mario Testino will have longevity well beyond the season that this ad campaign represents.”

Re-enforcing the brand’s rich heritage and signature icons, the series of colour images are anchored in outerwear, including the Burberry trench coat, and innovations of the iconic Burberry check, all starting points for all collections.

The images also focus on other key Burberry competencies including eveningwear, tailoring and Burberry accessories for women including The Woolf Bag, introduced this season, and pieces from the jewellery collections.

The Burberry snood, the ‘new’ scarf, and the latest addition to the Burberry accessories collection introduced during the Burberry Prorsum Autumn Winter catwalk shows. Snoods feature throughout the campaign in variations of the Burberry trademark check.

The mood of the Autumn/ Winter 2008/09 collection and shoot was inspired by the attitude, silhouette, colour, texture, nostalgia and poetry of the evocative paintings by British Northern artist L S Lowry.

Burberry Clothing & Accessories – A not so British Brand?

Burberry Clothing & Accessories - A not so British Brand?All appears rosie in Burberry’s checked garden, with sales figures the highest they have ever been in the brand’s history and accessories selling out before they even make it to the shop floor. That said, Welsh factory workers are not amongst those sharing the wealth. Workers at a threatened Burberry factory in south Wales on Thursday held a demonstration against its closure at the Welsh assembly. The Rhondda-based factory, which employs 309 people, is in consultation about closing at the end of the year and moving production abroad – wink wink.

Earlier this month, there were protests outside the designer’s store in London about the closure. Thursday’s lunchtime demonstration will be addressed by Rhondda politicians Chris Bryant MP and Leighton Andrews AM. Mervyn Burnett, senior organiser for the GMB union, said: “This is the next step in the GMB campaign to gather support from elected representatives and others to maintain Burberry production in south Wales .”

The factory in Treorchy makes polo shirts and production will go where costs are lower, possibly to Asia or South America . Burberry has said the factory is no longer “commercially viable”, but it would not abandon the UK. The union is asking the company to consider bringing new work to the Rhondda.

It says Burberry could make raincoats in Wales rather than increasing the amount of rainwear they make in Castleford, West Yorkshire . If the company was to make the extra 45,000 coats they plan to in Rhondda instead, the GMB says the company could save 220 of the 300 threatened jobs. The firm would need to move to a smaller site than its Treorchy base, but the union believes one could be found in the area, possibly with help from the assembly government. A Burberry spokeswoman said the company would look at all options, as the intention to close was “only a proposition”.

Burberry Clothing not a “Chav’ Brand?

Burberry Clothing not a Angela Ahrendts, the new boss of Burberry, is planning ‘men only’ stores in a move to reach a wider audience. The American, who last week replaced Rose Marie Bravo as chief executive of Burberry, downplayed the company’s reputation as the brand of choice for ‘chavs’. ‘This is a very British notion,’ she said, adding that Burberry is perceived as a ‘modern classic brand’ globally and that different formats, including dedicated accessory stores, will be looked at.

New ranges for men will be modelled by singer Bryan Ferry’s sons Otis and Isaac, as well as members of the band Kasabian. Kate Moss and Stella Tennant will be among the models promoting Burberry’s creations when it launches an autumn advertising campaign. Ahrendts, former vicepresident of Liz Claiborne in the US, added that she was keen to expand Burberry’s presence in North America.
