Valentino Garavani campaign
With zeitgeist photographer Alessandro Merlo, Valentino created a brand new campaign centered around the house’s viral Tan-Go pump. Just like the shoe itself, the campaign is head-turning. Personalities who challenge the status quo pose in front of Merlo’s lens, solely wearing Valentino’s famous pumps. Nettuno, Charli, Lina Giselle and Agnes Questionmark reach sky-high heights wearing the Valentino Garavani Tan-Go pumps.
Alessandro Merlo has committed himself to upgrade the beauty standards of the third millennium, ushering in a more caring and inclusive society. For the shoot, Merlo photographed Nettuno, a 21-year-old queer artist, and performer, alongside 24-year-old nonbinary DJ Charli from Bologna. Colombia-born and Italy-raised Lina Giselle also joined the shoot, together with artist Agnes Questionmark. The result? Simply stunning. Find the proof below.
