He said: "This season's campaign lights up with the infectious energy of an amazing young cast of old and new Burberry family.
"Cara, Edie Campbell, Charlotte Wiggins, Charlie France and Alex Dunstan are joined by Max Rendell and Romeo, who was a joy to work with and really stole the show."
Burberry, which has its HQ in London, was founded in 1856.
