Burberry brings romance back with a 'melancholy' campaign for its Fall 2008-9 collection. The subdued black and white ads star actor Sam Riley and model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.
Fashion photographer Mario Testino shot the ads at Kensington Gardens in London.
The new campaign is a dramatic departure from the Burberry's spring/summer 2008's rock-inspired campaign which featured Supermodel Agyness Deyn.
Burberry's Christopher Bailey was quick to dismiss rumors of a falling out, "Agyness is a huge part of the Burberry family and a personal friend. We've worked with her for several years and I am thrilled she will continue to star in our fragrance campaign."
