Twenty-one-year-old model Fran Summers is the face of the new Burberry Her campaign under Riccardo Tisci’s creative direction.
The discovery of Francesca Summers is one that happened by chance. At 15 years old, the Richmond, Yorkshire native was shopping in a M.A.C store in London when the makeup artist noticed her looks and brought her to Storm Model Management the next day. With piercing blue eyes, sharp facial features and ethereal beauty, she was almost immediately offered a contract. She was just 15 years old at the time.
Fran made her debut at the Christopher Kane Spring/Summer 2017 show and has walked for every fashion week since, including the likes of Saint Laurent, Valentino, Salvatore Ferragamo and Chanel shows. She was the most-booked runway model in 2018 and currently ranks top 50 on models.com. Not to mention she’s a British Vogue regular, featured both as an editorial and cover model in 2018.
Today, a new campaign achievement has been added to her list and it’s for Burberry Her, photographed by Mario Sorrenti. However, this isn’t her first time for the British fashion house. This is in fact Fran’s fifth campaign for Burberry under Chief Creative Officer Riccardo Tisci,
Blending the notions of dream and reality, Fran Summers transforms into a white bird while exploring a deserted dawn cityscape as it awakes. Alongside Mario Sorrenti, the campaign’s glam team includes stylist Carlos Nazario, Burberry’s Global Beauty Director Isamaya Ffrench, and hairstylist James Pecis. Here, Fran shares her pride for her motherland.
On her favourite thing about being British
“Our irreverence, loyalty and individuality.”
On her love for London
“I love where I live and walking along the canal in North London all the way from home to Shoreditch. It’s a long walk and it’s peaceful but as you walk, it gets busier and you get more of a city vibe with the hustle, which is very indicative of London’s cities by the water.”
On how Burberry Her should be worn
“Her EDP and Her Intense are fruity gourmand fragrances, strong and powerful. I feel that they are best worn in the winter or in the evening. Her Blossom and Her London Dream are lighter scents with a strong floral accord. I love to wear them in spring and summer when the weather is hotter. It gives me the feeling of freedom that I am looking for.”
Her London Dream 100ml, RM535. Her Intense 50ml, RM404. Her Blossom 30ml, RM330 and Her Eau de Parfum 100ml, RM535 are available at all major departmental stores.
