Marks & Spencer 'autumn 2011' by RKCR/Y&R

Meanwhile, the model David Gandy has been unveiled as the face of M&S's Collezione sub-brand.

The models and actresses Sophie Byron, Suki Waterhouse and Louise de Chevigny also appear in new in-store, online and print ads, shot by Rankin, for the store's Limited Collection.

The M&S executive director of marketing, Steve Sharp, said: "It’s a very different campaign for M&S as it’s the first time we have focused on one of our brands in this way. We are very proud of the result."

The work was written by Graeme Cook and art directed by Stuart Elkins.
