The world is in flux. As the climate changes so too is the movement of people, says UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency. Expressed in an altogether different register, this reality finds expression in the Etro Spring 2020 advertising campaign starring Abby Champion and Ugbad Abdi. Photographed by Cass Bird and styled by George Cortina, the campaign adopts nomadism as its central theme. “A travel of the imagination in which we are all nomads,” proclaims the campaign as its voyagers ride the undulating waters of the Hudson River aboard a twin-mast yacht. To be sure, this intrepid crew is not what the United Nations identifies as a high risk pool for displacement, not even close. This campaign’s nomads are winners, exceptionally beautiful winners at that.
