While most of us are making Thanksgiving plans, Sienna Miller, Tom Sturridge, and Burberry are getting in the holiday spirit with the new Burberry With Love campaign and we have to admit, it’s making us want to get our wish lists ready! Posing alongside her real-life love, Miller shows off Burberry’s autumn/winter collection of evening gowns by donning the geometric metal strap dress while Sturridge keeps it cool with in a tuxedo paired with a leather jacket. The British couple’s ads are part of a global festive campaign (see the whimsical new video here) that is sure to get you in the holiday spirit, evoking scenes of holiday shopping during the winter season while wearing the brand’s coveted trench coats and scarves designed with the iconic tartan pattern. Burberry With Love is also launching an enhanced website experience that allows you to personalize your very own page with gifting suggestions and inspiration (also convenient to send along to others for ideas; hint, hint!). To get in the holiday spirit, scroll down to see more of the ads or visit burberry.com to get your wish list started.
The recipe for an inspired ensemble: Combine two of the season’s hottest trends (or make one a double). The result? An utterly intoxicating cocktail. Wild print mixology no longer includes florals and stripes. Instead, off-beat, refreshing combos made their way down the fall/winter 2013 runway, from stripes-on-stripes at Burberry Prorsum to pinstripes and embroidery at Dries Van Noten. Click through to see (and shop) the four charming outfit-making print pairings.
After the season 3 premiere of Scandal, it was pretty clear who (or in this case, what) stole the show: Olivia Pope’s white trench coat. The Burberry Prorsum Duchesse satin cape topper first made its mark on Cara Delevigne at the spring 2013 runway before making waves in the now famous tension-wrought bunker scene (no spoilers, we promise) with Kerry Washington and InStyle‘s hunky Man of Style Tony Goldwyn. “Kerry and I felt like this coat was her suit of armor and she was going into battle,” Scandal costume designer Lyn Paolo revealed to InStyle.com on her wardrobe decision. “In the bunker, Olivia is closed off emotionally and doesn’t want to reveal herself all the way so we kept the coat fastened and buttoned up.” Sadly, the coat is sold out everywhere (like we had $2,500+ to shell out anyway), so we did the next best thing and rounded up 8 lookalikes that we think can cause as much of a scandal.

Congratulations, Andy Murray! The 26-year-old Scottish tennis player beat out Serbian Novak Djokovic to take home the Wimbledon trophy at yesterday’s finals. While Murray is sponsored by the German brand Adidas, flaunting his triple stripes all over the grass of the Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club in London, his off-court style is much more patriotic. The winner, as well as his girlfriend Kim Sears, chose to wear British brand Burberry to the Wimbledon Winners’ Ball last night in London last night. With Murray’s memorable win—it was the first time in 77 years that a Brit has won the men’s championships at Wimbledon—choosing Burberry is a nice, subtle message of his British pride.

Your kisses are getting digitized! Burberry teamed up with Google to launch Burberry Kisses, which uses Kiss Recognition Technology—yes, that’s a real thing now—to digitally blow your real kiss print to anywhere in the world. “Burberry Kisses began with the idea of giving technology a bit of heart and soul, and using it to unite the Burberry family across the world – by telling a story that makes the digital personal,” said Burberry’s Chief Creative Officer Christopher Bailey. You can try it on the go by imprinting your pout on your phone or tablet or at your desk by capturing your kiss on a webcam or computer camera (best experienced through Google Chrome). Then, send your kiss to your pals—the site features a real-time interactive map using Google Earth and Street View that tracks every kiss sent all around the world, and showcases which cities are receiving and sending the most kisses.
