DUBAI: Saint Laurent has unveiled its Menswear campaign for Spring 2020, starring Egyptian-American actor Rami Malek.
The 38-year-old who has been announced as the new face of the Parisian maison appears in a series of black-and-white images, captured by fashion photographer David Sims, for the campaign, wearing Saint Laurent creative director Anthony Vaccarello’s latest collection of slim-cut trousers, military-inspired jackets, sequined pants, silk boleros and expertly-tailored jeans.
The “Mr. Robot” actor follows in the footsteps of rapper Travis Scott, actor Keanu Reeves and “Big Little Lies” star Zoe Kravitz, who have all served as ambassadors for the prestigious fashion house.
Malek landed his first high-fashion gig when he served as the face of Dior Homme, fronting the label’s Spring 2017 campaign alongside English singer Boy George, as well as rapper A$AP Rocky.
Recently, the James Bond villain has been nominated for the Best Actor in a Drama Series at the Golden Globes 2020 for his role as a computer hacker named Elliot Alderson in the American thriller television show “Mr. Robot.” Naturally, we are expecting him to wear Saint Laurent on the red carpet.
