What do Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page and up and coming axe slinger Gary Clark, Jr. have in common, besides their ability to handle their instruments in jaw-dropping and mind-boggling ways? Well, they both star in the latest campaign for the John Varvatos men's fashion brand.
The images were shot in London by Danny Clinch, against a textured backdrop at the historic Rivoli Ballroom, where the two sharply dressed subjects stand out in iconic black and white portraits.
"Jimmy Page has been a music and fashion icon of mine since 1970. He has been a major influence and I am honored to call Jimmy a friend," says designer John Varvatos. "Gary Clark Jr. is the real deal – amazing guitar player, singer, songwriter and friend. Having 'The Master' and the 'Young Guitar-Slinger' together in our campaign is a dream come true."
This latest John Varvatos campaign follows 17 seasons, all of which underscore the brand's affinity for rock 'n' roll style-makers. Past collaborators have included Paul Weller and Miles Kane, Green Day, Franz Ferdinand, Perry Farrell, Alice Cooper, Iggy Pop, Chris Cornell, Joe Perry, Ryan Adams, Slash and more.
