Burberry holiday film gives Regent Street store an animated festive spin

 

Burberry is wishing its fans a”magical festive season” with the release of a short animated film set atop London’s snowy rooftops.

“A festive night at Burberry 121 Regent Street”, as it’s called, sees a silhouetted couple travel by umbrella to the doorstep of the new flagship store where a party awaits.

Accompanied by the soundtrack “Goodbye England (Covered In Snow)” by Laura Marling, it sees them dancing on the second floor while a fox and an owl, both central to Burberry’s autumn/winter 2012/13 collection, dart across the screen. Even the Burberry festive van pulls up, before the couple depart, catching a giftbag floating down on a balloon as they do that opens up to a coat for the woman to wear home.

Housed on holiday.burberry.com, the film ends with the closing of the greetings card, social icons to encourage fans to share and the festive message that it’s celebrating the season by donating to the Burberry Foundation, which helps young people realise their full potential through the power of their creativity.
