British brand Burberry promotes its new collection through a portfolio of images featuring Cara Delevingne and Matt Smith captured by British photographer Alasdair McLellan.

The collection is a celebration of British character and charm – a clash of fabric, pattern and colour. Laminated trench coats in tartan and check and dresses are mixed together with bags and scarves in splashes and stripes. Signature made-in-England gabardine trenches are available in classic colours for children. The Giant, a supersized reversible unisex tote, comes with tartan and checks inside and out in primary shades, finished with flashes of neon. Accessories include a variety of fun creatures and wallets in playful and paint-splashed prints. New Burberry Clan charms are available in a cast of animal key charms, uniquely crafted from offcuts found in the Burberry design studio.
