Swiss luxury watch brand HUBLOT enlists French football player and the brand’s ambassador Kylian Mbappé to star in their latest advertising campaign lensed by fashion photographer and creative director Ezra Petronio. The campaign celebrates values such as creativity, work, integrity and the quest for perfection.
It was an honour to work on this project, to address the relationship we have with time. I love simplicity, and the beauty of lasting things that have soul. – Kylian Mbappé, International Footballer
One of the brand’s ambassadors, Kylian is universally respected for his excellence on the pitch and his humility off it. Ezra is a seeker of perfection whose unique signature is a creative vision that finds inspiration in all areas of the creative arts. Their shared ethos reflects the Hublot philosophy, and we were delighted to bring them together for this campaign. – Ricardo Guadalupe, Hublot Ceo
What I love more than anything when creating a portrait is to capture that spark that is unique to each one of us – whatever that may be. And to evoke emotion in the viewer so that nothing can distract the gaze from the essence of the subject. What fascinates me about Kylian – apart from his creativity, virtuosity and the perfection of his art – is his passion, his intelligence and the inner strength that drives him. – Ezra Petronio, Creative Director
