Shot at Biblioteca Casanatense in Rome, which was established – and opened to the public – in 1701 by the Dominicans of the Convent of Santa Maria sopra Minerva, the campaign sees Chris Lee in the character of a book lover, wearing Gucci watches and jewelry.
In images taken by photographer Colin Dodgson and art directed by Christopher Simmonds, the new campaign has Chris Lee display the House’s new watch and jewelry creations in the antique, book-lined interior of the Biblioteca Casanatense. The pictures capture Chris Lee among old, beautiful and leather-bound tomes that promise adventures for the imagination.
