A rather infamous photographer for a famous company.

One of his most famous campaigns included a photo  of David Kirby dying of AIDS, lying in a Columbus, Ohio, hospital bed, surrounded by his grieving relatives. That picture was controversial due to its similarity to a piet√† painting and because some thought the use of this image to sell clothing was exploiting the victim; though the Kirby family stated that they authorized the use and that it helped increase AIDS awareness.
He also was the co-founder of colors a magasine also owned by X.
You have to identify X which is a famous clothing brand started in Italy and now has branches worldwide and earning a total turnover of over 2 billion euro.
