In order to raise awareness to the fast degradation of Venice city, Britain’s last punk designer Vivienne Westwood had the perfect idea to shoot her Spring Summer 2016 ad campaign there like a tourist tour through her longtime friend Juergen Teller.
But that’s not all, the campaign also features Colby Keller, the artist/porn-actor famous for his project colbydoesamerica.com and you can see their worlds interact between themselves with a full frontal picture of the last one wearing just a SS16 Vivienne coat.
In Vivienne Westwood website you can read “Mirror the World”: is about saving Venice. The problem there is one of repair, mass tourism on cruise ships and of climate change. Shot around the alleys & canals, shipyards and palazzos of Venice, the campaign highlights the beauty & decay of Venice and the urgent need to save it: www.weareherevenice.org“
This is amazingly raw and beautiful at the same time, what a good time to be alive.
