The Agent Provocateur Spring/Summer 2013 advertising campaign, starring Crystal Renn, was shot by Olivier Zahm, on a set which was influenced by Ed Ruscha’s ’70s gasoline station photographs and by Helmut Newton’s images.
Moreover, in October 2012, Gucci hosted the LACMA 2012 Art + Film Gala, at the Los Angeles Museum of Art, in honor of Ed Ruscha.

The Karl Lagerfeld-shot Fendi Autumn/Winter 2013-2014 advertising campaign, starring Cara Delevingne, pays homage to Rome.
Some Rome-inspired collections : Alberta Ferretti Spring/Summer 2008 (this collection was based on the Greco-Roman imagery), Damir Doma Spring/Summer 2012 Menswear (this show, titled « Into Rooms of Light », was influenced by the luxuriant decay of William Klein’s « Rome »), Vera Wang Spring/Summer 2008 (this collection paid tribute to ancient Rome).
Moreover, Fendi has created the « Fendi for Fountains » fund to restore Rome’s Trevi fountain, then 4 other Roman fountains (from 2013 until 2017).
