Burberry has just launched its latest campaign based on the collections shown in January and February for men and women respectively. Celebrating "British art and creativity," the advertisements feature portraits of Edie Campbell and Callum Turner by Mario Testino, juxtaposed with original illustrations by British artist Luke Edward Hall—highlighting the collections' rich patterns and textures. On the decision to feature Hall's work, Burberry Chief Creative and Executive Officer Christopher Bailey said: “Luke is a great talent and it has been wonderful working and collaborating with him on our campaign. His beautiful illustrations next to Mario’s powerful photographs capture the artisanal spirit of the collection.”

In line with the brand's new "see now, buy now" mantra, a sampling of The Patchwork bags shown in the campaign (below) is now available to purchase on Burberry.com.
