In 1993, Mario Sorrenti and then-girlfriend Kate Moss hooked up to produce one of the most iconic campaigns of that era for Calvin Klein’s Obsession fragrance. Now the famed fashion photographer has released previously unseen, ridiculously romantic footage from the shoot.
For the campaign, Calvin Klein sent the couple to a beach house for 10 days to document their relationship. Sorrenti narrates the dreamy video. “I was 20, and she was 18. There was nothing, no worries,” he says. “We had nothing, we had nothing to lose. Those were good times.”
Unfortunately, Moss remembers the time a little differently. Back in 2015 she spoke to Nick Knight of SHOWstudio about the shoot, revealing that the couple broke up shortly after the campaign. “When you’re in a relationship with a photographer and they start abusing that relationship – and being like, ‘I want you to do this, and I want you to do that’ – it makes you go, ‘No’,” she said.
The video is being released as part of Calvin Klein’s reimagining of the Obsession fragrance. Obsessed for Women and Obsessed for Men are available July 1.
