In his Instagram, fashion photographer Mario Sorrenti, known for the simplicity and sensuality of his pictures, congratulated ex-girlfriend Kate Moss on her birthday with a series of black and white photos taken during their vacation together. In the early 90s they brought the young couple a rapid success.

Returning from a vacation in the Virgin Islands to New York, 20-year-old Mario showed Fabien Baron, the famous art director, with whom they then worked at Harper's Bazaar, footage shot from 18-year-old Kate Moss. Fabien was impressed and offered to show them to Calvin Klein as the perfect obsession story for his fragrance. And, soon, on behalf of the designer, the couple returned to the islands again to recreate the images and shoot the legendary CK Obsession 1993 advertising campaign.

The iconic scent was relaunched in 2017 under the leadership of Raf Simons, who served as Creative Director for Calvin Klein at the time. Having studied the archives and reimagined the visual heritage of the fashion house, he breathed new life into the fragrance, transforming Obsession into Obsessed. In his support, an advertising campaign was issued, framed by previously unpublished footage of the very shooting in 1993.

“She pulled such a powerful emotion from me. I was just completely taken by photographing her. She's definitely a magical person.” - Mario Sorrenti

In an interview with AnOther magazine, Mario Sorrenti said:

”I think we both influenced each other quite a bit. She had incredible style and I had a lot of knowledge about art and photography. I like to think that we inspired each other. We are still close friends, and have worked together countless times over the past 25 years."
