Johnny Flynn and Karen Anne star in Burberry ads


Burberry is to feature British acoustic musicians Karen Anne and Johnny Flynn in its Spring and Summer ad campaigns.

The couple star in creatives shot on Brighton Beach by celebrity photographer Mario Testino that will roll out in print this week, followed by a digital campaign.

The ads will feature in high-end publications such as Vogue, with online content being made available on Facebook and YouTube.

The brand says the aim is to reinforce its synergy with British landscapes, weather and emerging talent.

Other featured pairings have included Harry Potter star Emma Watson with her brother, British models Cara Delevingne and Jacob Young, as well as British actors Sophie Kennedy-Clark and Matthew Beard.
