ELLESSE x ROBERT McGINNIS.



Italian sportswear giants Ellesse have collaborated with iconic illustrator Robert McGinnis.
McGinnis who's notable work includes covers many cult novels and of course cult film posters for the likes of James Bond's Thunderball etc, Barbarella, Woody Allen's Sleeper, Raquel Welch and Sophia Lauren, and his famous first commission - Breakfast at Tiffany's, often featuring suave individuals with handguns and a bevvy of scantily clad sexy ladies.

This campaign creates an air of Mediterranean luxury for the Italian sportswear brand, mixing his typical classic style with a dash of 'la dolce vita'! McGinnis also worked on the recent 'La Nouvelle' campaign for a certain lager some of you might be partial to, but not me, so pretty trendy right now with a whiff of the Paninaro about it too. In a world dominated with photography and over saturated airbrushing in advertising it's good to see a return to a great, criminally under-used art form, with some old examples below CD
