Portraits for successful living was an advertising campaign for clothing and accessories for men and women by Diesel in spring and summer 2012. The subsequent fall/winter campaign also had the same name.
After the controversial Be Stupid campaigns of 2010 and their continuation in the Diesel Island campaigns of 2011, Diesel choose a less controversial campaign for their spring and summer 2012 collection. Models wearing clothing and accessories by Diesel are shown together with mostly oversized props, for example a giant egg, cooking pot or hammer, before a dirty green background. How these portraits shall lead to a successful living, however, is left open.
