Menswear campaigns roundup AW13: Michael Pitt in Rag & Bone and Kenzo’s stunt riders on film

Posted on 25th July, by Colin Chapman in Campaigns, menswear. No Comments

From time to time I like to take a look at some of the more interesting menswear campaigns out there, here are a couple that have caught my eye recently.

First up, pictures have emerged of US actor Michael Pitt in Rag & Bone‘s menswear campaign for AW13. In these stills taken from the upcoming video (set for September release) Pitt is seen driving around downtown Manhattan wearing a selection of Rag & Bone’s Autumn/Winter outerwear including a beautiful shearling collar coat, and (as even The Daily Mail were excited to report) trashing his own guitar in the middle of a New York City street.

And on to a current obsession. House Music saviors Azari & Ill (even the name is genius) are here to remind us what good, jacking house should sound like.
