Dazed & Confused magazine report on Italian Fashionistas Diesel debuting their anti-division campaign 'Make Love Not Walls', teaming up once more with David LaChapelle, the American photographer, film director, and artist. He is best known for his photography, which often references art history and sometimes conveys social messages, and that's certainly what Diesel are conveying with their powerful imagery in this campaign.
Diesel first shocked the world collaborating with LaChapelle in 1995 with a campaign featuring two male sailors kissing. Artistic director Nicola Formichetti explains: “At Diesel, we have a strong position against hate and more than ever we want the world to know that.”
To coincide with London Fashion Week, there is a rainbow-coloured inflatable tank (featured in the ad) appearing in London today, then making its way around Milan, Shanghai, New York, Berlin and Tokyo. For Formichetti, “Love and togetherness is crucial in creating a society we all want to live in, and the future we all deserve.”
