One thing we all know about the fashion world is that it is a very competitive place, especially in the Luxury market. On rare occasions, we may see top designers pair up to design a collection together, let alone star in each other’s ad campaigns.
Although the announcement was made back in April that Donatella would star in the campaign for Givenchy’s Autumn/Winter collection, not many people believed it – until today when Tisci took to Instagram to unveil the images! The ad campaign is shot by well known photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, and the wardrobe stylings were done by Carine Roitfeld. The campaign images show Donatella with arms crossed staring down the camera, in a decked out look from Tisci’s new autumn collection.
Donatella said of the campaign, “I believe in breaking rules. Riccardo Tisci is extremely talented and above all my dear friend. We are family. I want to get rid of the old system, work together, support each other and make fashion a true global community”. Tisci also said, “I approached my friend Donatella because she represents what a Fashion Icon is to me. We thought it was time to break boundaries and give a strong message about how to think Fashion”. I’m happy they collaborated and look forward to see what is in store for us with this collection!
