Naomi, Jourdan, George, and George
Starting the week off with a bang, yesterday Burberry unveiled their Spring/Summer 2015 ad campaign featuring Naomi Campbell and Jourdan Dunn. Famed photographer Mario Testino, who photographed the two models, describes it as “an explosion of color and mix that only girls with the strength of [Dunn and Campbell] could convey.”
Marking her fourth campaign with the British brand, Dunn—who sauntered her way down the catwalk for the Spring/Summer Ready-to-Wear show back in September—replaces pal Cara Delevingne in the new advertisement, while Campbell succeeds longtime friend Kate Moss. In the photograph above, Campbell and Dunn sport hand-painted trenches (that replace traditional belts with sashes made of tulle) splashed with hues of hunter green, turquoise, plum, and Indian red, and grip classic satchels that are updated for Spring with pops of pastel.
Shot together for the very first time, the supermodels can be seen clutching one another in a warm embrace and speaking on their newfound chemistry, Testino says, “[Campbell’s and Dunn’s] energy came together in the most natural way and it was amazing to see them embodying the collection and spirit Christopher Bailey had created for Burberry this season.”
Supporting Dunn and Campbell in the menswear campaign are two drummers named George: George Barnett, of the New Puritans, who is also the face of the Burberry Brit Rhythm fragrance, and George Le Page, of the band Of Empires, who opened and closed the Burberry menswear S/S 2015 show last June.
