As usual, John Varvatos has enlisted musical stars for his latest campaign, this time featuring reggae royalty Ziggy and Stephen Marley, for his Spring/Summer 2015 imagery. 

The black and white campaign was shot in Austin, Texas by legendary rock photographer Danny Clinch for John Varvatos, resulting in a family portrait of the two brothers dressed in the designer's latest menswear pieces. 

"The Marley family is legendary," explained Varvatos. "Ziggy Marley and Stephen Marley are carrying on this legacy in their own authentic way. Working with them has been incredibly inspiring. They are truly a magical family."

Ziggy Marley has won several Grammy awards, as well as an Emmy for his work as a singer, songwriter and producer, and is well known for his work as a solo artist as well as part of Ziggy Marley and The Melody Makers. 

Meanwhile, Stephen 'Ragga' Marley, is Rita and Bob Marley's second eldest son, and another member of The Melody Makers. He's won multiple Grammys of his own (two as a producer) in the Best Reggae Album category.

In addition, a documentary-style short film directed by Danny Clinch will debut on JohnVarvatos.com on February 5, which would have been Bob Marley's 70th birthday 

Previous rock stars and families shot by Clinch for Varvatos include Jimmy Page and Gary Clark Jr., Paul Weller and Miles Kane, Franz Ferdinand, and Iggy Pop among many others.
