Burberry has released a new video for their Spring/Summer 2013 collection featuring, you guessed it, Romeo Beckham. This video would make a great Saturday Night Live parody as the impish Romeo leaps, vogues and struts in classic Burberry apparel for to the tunes of Tom O’Dell’s another love.
The video highlights Burberry’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection, which I was privileged to see on the runway at London Fashion Week. In contrast to the beauty of the runway show, the video featuring Romeo is positively puckish and playful. Into the mix of the beautiful Burberry fashions runs Romeo Beckham leaping, pointing his umbrella and smiling through over sized shades. The kid clearly has charisma. And being the son of David Beckham doesn’t hurt either. I don’t think the appearance of Romeo adds a thing to the cache of the Burberry brand, but it is attention getting and hilarious. It’s like starring Justin Bieber in the opera Madame Butterfly. The marriage of Romeo Beckham and Burberry is a unique pairing to say the least.
