Patrizia Pepe has chosen Dua Lipa, a rising star in the music world as the exclusive face of the AW  17/18  advertising campaign, shot  by  photographer  and  director Sharif  Hamza.  Patrizia Pepe recognised her status as an idol for millennials and with one of the most powerful voices on the international scene.

The brand is re-affirming their close bond with the world of music by partnering with Dua Lipa. Aged  22,  Dua  Lipa  has  had  remarkable  success  with  her  music globally  including  her  singles “Blow your Mind”, “Be the one”, “New Rules”and her hugely successful self-titled album which has just been released. Dua Lipa has 710 million views on YouTube and1.8 million followers on Instagram. The Times have noted her as “the superstar we’ve all been waiting for”.Patrizia  Pepe  are  celebrating  their25th  anniversary  in  2018, a  huge  mile  stone  for  the  Italian brand,  and  a  time  to  reinforce  the  brand’s  DNA.

Creative  Director  Patrizia  Bambi  has  a  deep passion  for  music,  and  music  has  always  played  a  huge  role  and  source  of  inspiration  when designing the collections.“I’m really excited about this unique, fascinating collaboration,” explains Bambi. “Dua’s spirit is a continuation of her music and vice versa. Her style reveals a delicate, sensual femininity which pushes  the  boundaries  and  reflects  the  bold,  irreverent  nature  of  our  brand.  Her  identity  is strong,  playful, and  sophisticated.

Her  name  means  love  and she  has  a  really  personal, unconventional story. She has fun with her sound and her rocky vibe –gritty and elegant all at once –and encapsulates the liberated, eclectic personality of the Patrizia Pepe woman.”Produced in New York, the film clip and photographs in the campaign are paired with the song Bang Bang, which Dua Lipa covered exclusively for Patrizia Pepe.The original plot ranges from sexy attitude to veiled irony, where the metropolitan gang led by the  pop  star  is  used  to  symbolise  the  sense of  complicity,  sharing  and  belonging  synonymous with the feminine world.

It is a reaffirmation of a fundamental message: “Life is madness to be lived with perfect accomplices.”“I love Patrizia Pepe because the brand’s look reflects our desire to put ourselves out there, to follow our dreams and to express our creativity,” explains Dua Lipa. “The brand’s vision of the Italian style, usually classic, is glamorous and rebellious, its hows an incredible strength.”The  campaign  will launch  in  August,  with  the  campaign  film  being  released  on  the  20th September 2017 during Milan Fashion Week.
