As usual, GUESS’ brand’s chief creative officer Paul Marciano staged the label’s advertising campaign. Meanwhile, the fashion brand enlisted talented photographer Nima Bernati to capture the stunning outing at Villa Erba, located next to Lake Como. It’s also known as the former summer residence of Luchino Visconti, a well-known and respected Italian movie director.

Marciano had the pleasure of working with Morrone this season. He complimented the star on his hard work ethic, decisiveness, and ambitiousness. And Marciano stated that within minutes he could feel a “strong connection” with Morrone as they have similar values, so “within minutes [he] realized [that they] were going to work together.”
