Burberry blooms for spring/summer '08 campaign - starring Lily Donaldson, Eden Clarke & co.

Burberry has long been about doing things in big electic groups, consisting of a mixture of models, musicians, and other various It-kids.This spring/summer looks no different, with Christopher Bailey luring his cast to Petersham Nurseries, outside of London, for a greenhouse-style shoot. As far as who stars, well it appears that the whispers were correct for once. There is no sign of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley this time, after she was reportedly dropped from the label due to that drug scandal a few months back. Oops!

As speculated, Rosie seems to have been replaced by Eden Clark and actor Alex Pettyfer, amongst others. Joining them are models Lily Donaldson, Alexina Graham and Richard Wyndham, photographer Emily Hope, and musicians George Craig and Sam Beeton. The bunch were shot by Mario Testino, sporting Burberry's strong-selling outerwear. Although, keep your eyes peeled for Burberry's The Gardener bag next season.

"I wanted the mood to be gentle, relaxed, romantic and about a quiet, beautiful sense of luxury," Bailey told WWD. "This campaign highlights the spirit of our wonderfully crumpled classics."
