The Burberry campaign stars get trenched

A fan of the Burberry trench? Who isn't! Well now you can take the look one step further as Burberry have released a collection of sunglasses and frames inspired by the iconic coat.

So how have their sunnies been trenched? Well they have the honey colour palette, the tonal stitching and polished metal supports which mirror the metal hook-and-eye neck fastenings. Oh and of course the Burberry check features heavily.

Prices start at £160. Shop the collection on

Just in case we were in any doubt that these are some seriously cool shades, they have created a special campaign, shot by Mario Testino, with their British cast working the frames. A few months ago we introduced you to the Burberry freshman with bios on the new recruits - Jamie Campbell Bower, Leo Dobson, Malaika Firth, Matilda Lowther, Neelam Gill, Callum Ball and Jean Campbell.

This is Burberry, so of course they have produced an exquisite video with a beautiful soundtrack and lots of lingering looks from their campaign stars - including the dreamy Jamie Campbell-Bower. We never thought a video about sunglasses could be quite so poetic. Oh Burberry you do know how to give us goosebumps!
