A rapper whose signature sound is a blend of styles, Ghali – already one of the most influential artists of his generation – will become the face of the United Colors of Benetton brand. As part of the new collaboration, Ghali, who is currently in the studio working on his latest album - will create a capsule collection and content for the Italian maison that will celebrate both his and the brand’s values.
Tunisian-origin Italian rapper Ghali embodies many of the values of United Colors of Benetton
For the first time, United Colors of Benetton is linked to an artist who perfectly embodies the label’s values. Born in Italy to Tunisian parents and raised in the suburbs of Milan, the melodies of his songs mix oriental and electronic sounds, while the lyrics speak explicitly of dialogue and integration, with verses in Italian, French and Arabic.

“We admire his style, his ideas, his attitude,” says Massimo Renon, CEO of Benetton Group. "We are thrilled to partner with a great artist, especially one who shares our values.”
“Every opportunity to experiment and expand my art delights me,” says Ghali. “I am very proud and happy to create a capsule collection for a brand like United Colors of Benetton. It’s a great challenge and I can't wait to get to work.”

Lifestyle Insider is a kind of junction point, connecting people with diverse interests that touch on the more luxurious aspects of lifestyle – fashion, design, travel, food and spirits, art, watches and jewellery, cars, yachts, and aviation, and technology. People today don’t fit into boxes and categories. In our individual ways, we are interested in diverse themes, products, and the challenges that face our world today. You will judge how well this effort of mine caters to your passions and proclivities.
Lifestyle Insider is a showcase of all that is beautiful and luxe. Behind every creation, is a designer, chef, entrepreneur, or a design maison. I have delved into my own appreciation for objetsde luxe that I have admired over the years – be it a love of fashion from the world’s top Parisian and Italian fashion maisons and their ’90s muses, or the care that goes into sari and Indian textile collections in my own family. Growing up on four continents, as the daughter of a former Indian Ambassador, I’ve seen a remarkable array of historic places and met a myriad people. My aim is to bring my world view into this website, a curation of what I find particularly stunning, unique, and newsworthy.
It’s an exciting time for brands all over the world. With change comes opportunity. With the global ‘reset’ and uncertainty on many fronts, there is a chance to write a new script. Let’s be those pioneers.
