·2-min read

Naomi Campbell has been tapped to front Burberry's latest campaign.

The supermodel has teamed up with her longtime friend and the British heritage brand's chief creative officer, Riccardo Tisci, on the new TB Summer Monogram campaign.

Sharing a shot of her wearing a strappy triangle bikini covered in a blue and white TB monogram print on Instagram, Naomi wrote in the accompanying caption, "So thrilled to be the face of @Burberry new #TBmonogram campaign. Thank you @RiccardoTisci17 (heart emoji) #proudtobebritish."

In other campaign images, photographed by Danko Steiner, Naomi wears bucket hats, bags and lightweight trousers in varying shades of blue with the interlocking TB logo. A campaign video starring a CGI embodiment of Naomi was also created by visual artist Frederik Heyman.

The 51-year-old, who became a mother in May, said in a statement that she feels honoured to represent the brand.

"Working with Burberry is always such an honour. It's a British institution and, in a way, you feel like you're representing your country," she said, before adding that Tisci "continually manages to bring another facet out of me, pushing me to do things I don't think I can do."

The Italian fashion designer explained that Naomi, who has a long-running relationship with Burberry, was the perfect fit for the summer collection.

"I wanted to celebrate the balance of our heritage with the importance of always evolving and looking forward," he shared, reports WWD. "The collection captures that optimistic feeling of summer and that feeling of constant momentum - the excitement for what's next. I couldn't think of anyone better to symbolize this enduring nature than my incredible friend, Naomi."

Naomi follows in the footsteps of Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid, who previously modelled for Burberry's TB Monogram campaigns.

The collection launches on 16 July.
