Burberry: The class of SS14

Meet the new guard

More than just adverts, Burberry's campaigns have long doubled as a barometer of who's new and hot in the worlds of music, film and fashion in the UK - and its offering for spring/summer 2014, unveiled today, is no different.

Models Malaika Firth, Matilda Lowther, Neelam Johal, Callum Ball and Jean Campbell, actor Jamie Campbell Bower and musician Leo Dobson all made the grade for the 'romantic, gentle' shoot by Mario Testino, which showcases the collection aptly entitled English Roses by Christopher Bailey.

It caps a sterling year for Firth, who earned national headlines as the face of Prada this season - the first black model to do so since Naomi Campbell in 1994.

This being Burberry, of course, there's an accompanying video too - and we are loving the accompanying track, Introvert by Squeeze, which we first heard at the label's spring/summer 2014 menswear show.
