To kick off the festive season and to celebrate the iconic British brand's 160th anniversary, Burberry has released a cinematic trailer that documents the key events that have shaped its founder Thomas Burberry. 

From Burberry's invention of the weatherproof fabric gabardine that dressed the military, polar explorers and pilots, to his personal life and romantic interests. Of course, the gabardine coats later became the company's signature trench coat. 

Written by Matt Charman and directed by Asif Kapadia, the film stars Domnhall Gleeson as Burberry, Sienna Miller as Thomas Burberry's fictional first love, Dominic West as Sir Ernest Shackleton, and Lily James as pilot Betty Dawson.
