Balenciaga has been in the news a lot lately. First of all, we just heard that the fashion wunderkind Alexander Wang will be leaving his post as the luxury label’s Creative Director after a 3-year stretch. Next, we found out that UK singer Sam Smith, the biggest name in music last year, was going to appear in their latest F/W campaign. Well those images have officially arrived and they look pretty slick. What we noticed right off the bat is how much weight Sam Smith has lost in the last several month. He’s looking slim, trim and very “high fashion.” The pictures are dark, well-composed and expertly executed by the respected Josh Olins.
There’s really nothing bad to say about this new campaign. It’s probably the one to beat for the coming Fall Fashion blitz.
