Poldark new series
Recognised for her roles in films such as The Three Musketeers and Carrie, the new campaign featuring Gabriella draws inspiration from British romance and highlights our deep-rooted heritage and unwavering royal connections.
The Forever Since 1775 campaign, shot by acclaimed photographer Bruno Dayan at the superb early 18th-century Antony House in Cornwall, marks a new chapter in Mappin & Webb’s history, featuring the beautiful Gabriella Wilde as our first ever brand ambassador.
Mappin & Webb’s role in authenticating the enduring love of others with its fine jewellery and timepieces is paralleled through this new campaign which draws inspiration from the world of classic literature. Bruno Dayan beautifully captures Gabriella’s natural and timeless beauty – a true reflection of everything that Mappin & Webb represents.
Gabriella Wilde is set to star in the latest season of the BBC 1’s hit drama, Poldark, based on the historical novels by Winston Graham. The series will be premiering on BBC in September 2016.
The unveiling of the Forever Since 1775 campaign and Gabriella Wilde as brand ambassador coincides with the re-opening of our Mappin & Webb flagship Regent Street boutique following a £2m refurbishment.
Today it’s Gabriella’s 27th Birthday. We from Gabriella Wild Network wish her a happy birthday filled with lots of love from her family and friends.
First of all we want to wish you a happy new year and the best for 2016!
