With Christmas right around the corner, it’s easy to fall into the holiday spirit. Fortunately for us, the new Burberry campaign featuring Naomi Campbell and her mother, Valerie Morris-Campbell, makes the seasonal transition that much more exciting. The mommy-daughter duo posed in a series of photos alongside campaign-mates M.I.A., Kristin Scott Thomas, and Matt Smith.
The campaign, titled “Close Your Eyes and Think of Christmas,” features a video shot by British artist and photographer Juno Calypso. “I wanted to portray a more realistic British Christmas, but still shot through a fantasy lens,” Calypso said. “The campaign takes you through all the key seasonal rituals, both good and bad. That’s what brings us together.”
One of the most talked about moments during the short film is Naomi Campbell’s appearance with her mother, stylishly posed against blue velvet sofas. The duo modeled items from the Vivienne Westwood and Burberry collaboration which will be available for sale in-store and online on December 6th. It has been almost 4 years since Naomi and her mother worked together on a shoot. “I’ll remember this project for a very long time and I’m honoured to be part of Burberry’s history,” said Morris-Campbell.
What a privilege it must be to work with your mother with such a major brand. “Being part of the festive campaign has been nothing short of incredible,” Naomi gushed. “I have always loved Burberry for its distinctive British feel and I am so excited to work alongside a cast which includes my own mother, Valerie. Working with her brought back so many memories of the holidays and traditions I had growing up – so that felt extremely special.”
