Jussie Smollett and Quincy Brown to star in Sean John’s “Dream Big” campaign.
Here’s the scoop via WWD:
Smollett stars as Jamal Lyon on Fox’s hit TV show, “Empire.” He is also an accomplished singer and songwriter, having written, “I Wanna Love You” and “All of the Above.” He also cowrote the hit “You’re So Beautiful” on the original soundtrack from Season 1 of “Empire.” The single debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart in March. In the campaign, Smollett wears a range of Sean John looks from suiting to sportswear and accessories.
Brown, stepson of Sean “Diddy” Combs, appeared in the 2015 films, “Brotherly Love,” and “Dope” and released his music single, “Friends First.” He also directed a music video for singer and actress Elle Winter’s song, “No Words,” in June. This marks the sixth campaign in which Brown has appeared, having posed for Sean John Boys at age 13. In the ads, Brown and Hunter are photographed wearing Sean John tailored clothing, sportswear and accessories.
Sean John’s boys line, coined as “Little Dreamers,” will feature LeBron James’ sons, LeBron Jr. and Bryce, as well as Carmelo Anthony’s son, Kiyan.
I’m looking forward to seeing the campaigns when they roll out.
