Robert De Niro is the face of Ermenegildo Zegna's 'Defining Moments' campaign
February 16, 2017: Menswear brand Ermenegildo Zegna has revealed its SS17 campaign starring actors Robert De Niro and McCaul Lombardi. This new brand campaign - entitled Defining Moments - marks the first of its kind where Zegna will henceforth talk with its community around the globe.
Legendary actor Robert De Niro needs no introduction. McCaul Lombardi, however, is at the start of his career with American Honey, released in 2016, winning him sudden Hollywood traction. Although born of two different generations, they share a vocation, a heritage - both are Italian-American - as well as a natural elegance of style and boldness of character.
Francesco Carrozzini’s short movies star De Niro and Lombardi interacting both with each other and the Zegna garments that they have chosen to wear. De Niro discusses his mentors, his philosophy of risk-taking, what draws him to a role - as well as what makes him shy away from them - and the city that owns his heart. Lombardi, naturally, is respectful of the master - visibly awe-struck to be in his company - but also keen to share his insights and experience, some of which De Niro recognizes in himself.
Zegna plans to host more such conversations under the ‘Defining Moments’ banner, and we look forward to them! To see and hear the actual conversation, click below or visit our YouTube channel.
