Burberry & Mario Testino

Burberry's ad campaign always tend to be sombre, black and white, with an emphasis on poise. Rigid.

I was in town. Yesterday. Went around checking out the tail end of the sales period before the official CNY sale starts. Or has it started?

Anyway, checked out Marc by Marc Jacobs....think I am not ready to buy anything in there as yet. Nothing caught my eye in particular. So didn't check the prices.

And seeing Agyness Deyn on the front of Burberry, in monochromatic glory....I had to slow down. But the weird thing, maybe sad, is that the latest campaign by Burberry is already featuring (for the first time in a long time) brilliant technicolour with Lily Donaldson, Coco Sumner (Sting's daughter), Merlin Ferry (Bryan Ferry's son) Alice Gibb (no, not the daughter of any of the BeeGees) and of course Agyness Deyn.
But the flagship store in Singapore is still featuring last year's ad campaign....
