UNITED COLORS OF BENETTON features a group of unique models for its SPRING 2013 CAMPAIGN. Over three days of photo shoot at the Pin Up Studio in Paris, “nine ambassadors for life and for style, distinguished by their multiculturalismcosmopolitan spirit and social commitment, shared their interpretation of colour”; a chromatic reflection of the talent and character which led them into the global limelight. On the heels of more controversial ad campaigns in the past, the new spring-summer 2013 pitch signals a venture into celebrity endorsements for the brand and puts forward a roster of idiosyncratic models that all boast, as one Benetton executive put it, “incredible personal stories.”
