It's not often a fashion film deserves an "Oscar-worthy" rating but the new Burberry festive film is one much deserving of that accolade.

Marking its 160th anniversary this year and to celebrate the festive season, Burberry's exclusive 3-minute fashion film tells us the story of its founder and the man who started it all, Thomas Burberry.

Titled “The Tale of Thomas Burberry” and directed by Academy Award-winner Asif Kapadia, the 3-minute epic film stars some of Hollywood’s best including Domhnall Gleeson, Sienna Miller, Dominic West and Lily James.

One, unlike any you’ve seen before, this poetic chronology is giving us an intense case of goosebumps that lasts long after we watched the film.

We believe seeing is believing, so here’s the amazing production:

Illustrating the legendary moments that shapes the brand Burberry, the film also brings to light the journey of the iconic trench coat used in both the World War I and also the British Antarctic expedition.

PS: This need to be adapted and produced into a full biographical film immediately. A sure-to-be award-winning production in our books.
