Just when you thought you couldn’t love Sam Smith even more he does this. We fell in with his voice, and now we are going to fall in love with him in his first collaboration with a fashion house. He is officially the new face of Balenciaga‘s autumn/winter 2015 mens collection. With fashion genius Alexander Wang as the creative director of Balenciaga this couldn’t be more of a perfect collaboration.
Alexander Wang said himself, “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.”
We’ve followed Sam Smith’s weight loss journey on Instagram and I think we’re definitely seeing a difference in Sam Smith’s persona. He seems very confident, smooth, and slick in his photos for the campaign. Posing in front of the camera seems to come very natural for him. He looks very photogenic in the photos taken in black and white by Josh Olins. Of course anything in black and white whether it’s a video or picture looks more interesting.
As a fashion fanatic and a fan of Sam Smith, I couldn’t love this campaign more. I love a guy that knows how to dress well. So if you’ve got the cash and you want to look chic and sophisticated Balenciaga should be your go to brand. A Balenciaga shopping spree is a must for me in the future.
