Compared to last year’s ad campaign with Matt WoodHouse, this year the ad campaign features three american models. The campaign features Travis Hanson, Rich Stinger and Sean Sullivan. The pictures were shot by a photographer Steven Klein who also shot the pictures of Woodhouse and the entire collection for the 2013 ad campaign.

The focal point of this year’s ad campaign was about branding, a very different angle from last year. The promotional images of this campaign do not just promote the underwear line of the brand, but also the accessories from the brand itself.

They are  donating the entire profit that they make from Brazil trunks for this fundraising campaign. The campaign launched with an advertising campaign, BBH London with Nicholas Jayr.  Since the campaign picked up very well, the advertising agency decided to make a short promotional video collaborating with a filmmaker and photographer, Klaus Thymann.

The short-film introduces the heartbreaking life of youth in the streets. It demonstrates that no matter how difficult the conditions are, goals are still possible to reach. Each child and teen in the video briefly talks about their own storyline and how difficult the conditions are. However, with all these struggles still deep in their heart, they show that they still have hope. They believe that one day they will make it to mainstream and they will have a chance to help out children and teens  like them.
