THE DAILY AFRICAN:
In 2001 Diesel launched a $15 million print campaign featuring a fictitious newspaper, The Daily African. Black models in Diesel jeans lounged in limos or lay across mahogany desks under headlines imagining Africa’s supremacy as a world power (“African Expedition to Explore Unknown Europe by Foot”).
It won that year’s Grand Prix at the International Advertising Festival in Cannes.
I still own this - I used to read it over and over and get my full fucking life.
ICONIC. I saved as many of these as I could find and might still have some in my closet, along with some other amazing Diesel campaigns.
There’s been some hype about supporting black owned businesses, especially when it comes to our hygiene and care but so many people don’t know what is and isn’t owned by black people so I thought I would share the list I have.
