Heads up marketing types – it seems this AW season, “inspiration” is the buzzword to throw around. From Dunhill to ASOS, Edun to 55DSL, brands seems to think we’re thirsting for some well-styled role models to simultaneously inspire ambition and educate on all issues sartorial, too.
Denim brand Diesel‘s Italian offshoot 55DSL has jumped on the bandwagon/blazed a trail (depending on how pioneering you deem this one…) with a mini-series comprising two videos featuring three creatives (one photographer, two DJs) and their artistic activities in Italia.

First up is photographer Lele Saveri who’s shot for NME, Rolling Stone and VICE and splits his time between Brooklyn, NYC and Milan. It’s a fairly straightforward concept – Saveri does his thing, whilst showing off 55DSL at all the right angles.
