An iconic Burberry colour palette runs through the collection and details, and a transparent case back on automatic watches highlights the intricacies of the movement and the Swiss craftsmanship behind it.
Shot by photographer Mario Testino in London, the ad campaign for The Britain features a British cast of emerging cultural talent that represents the many facets and attitudes of the brand and The Britain.
