The fashion brand, which in its heyday set the agenda (at least for getting press attention) with posters including a photograph of a man dying of Aids and a priest and a nun hugging, hopes to recapture its successful past while bringing the brand into the digital age. The newly revealed campaign shots, titled Unhate, show world leaders kissing each other – images include the Pope and the Sheikh of the al-Azhar mosque, Angela Merkel and Nicolas Sarkozy, and Barack Obama and Hugo Chavez. They are, of course, the result of digital manipulation.
