What a crazy week — so many of our fave stars are working on collabs with cool brands. This time it’s our favorite, Sam Smith, collaborating with Balenciaga. We love this duo and we can’t wait to see the rest of the campaign — can you?
Sam Smith, 23, just announced that he will be working on a creative collaboration for Balenciaga, which debuts in the brand’s Fall-Winter 2015 campaign, and this is a really big deal, because this is Sam’s first-ever men’s fashion campaign! We can’t wait to see the entire collection — can you?
The entire campaign is shot in black and white for an edgy, cool feel. The entire shoot was styled by Robbie Spencer, in different pieces from the upcoming collection. Alexander Wang, Creative Direcotr of Balenciaga, seemed very excited about the new face of the campaign. “Beyond his tremendous talent, Sam Smith conveys a quiet elegance and a subtle sensuality that are perfect for BALENCIAGA. He represents both sensitivity and power – the dualities of the Balenciaga man,” he said in a statement from the brand.
Sam is ecstatic and he gushed in a statement: “I am absolutely honoured to have been chosen to be the face of Balenciaga. I have been a devoted fan of the brand for a while now. I love how intimate it feels, and how involved Alexander has been and is with the brand. I never in my wildest dreams thought I’d be wearing these clothes let alone modeling them. So this is a dream come true, and I hope the beginning of a lovely long relationship with Alexander and the House.”
We are so excited for Sam, and for a first campaign, Balenciaga is definitely on the right track! We are so excited to see the rest of this collab — are you?
