Take a seat because you might need it (we sure did): Saint Laurent has just revealed a set of three images from its Fall/Winter 2019 men’s campaign. Its latest star? Sexy 90s heartthrob — Keanu Reeves!
Shot in monochrome by celebrated photographer David Sims, the 54-year-old actor sports a dark and brooding look, with scruffy beard and messy chin-length hair — much like his character in the upcoming movie John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum. Instead of wearing a suit as seen in the trailers, however, Reeves look unbelievably stylish, wearing three looks from the Parisian fashion house’s FW19 menswear range: a pinstripe blazer with black button-up and aviator shades, boxy motorcycle jacket with polkadot shirt and jeans, and a black leather aviator jacket with shearling collar.
Unsurprisingly, the internet applauded the choice, with netizens excitedly flooding the house’s Instagram post to leave gushing comments. “Monsieur Yves Saint Laurent would be so proud. Keanu Reeves is just the most elegant angel on earth,” said one user, while another commented: “So powerful, full of sensibility and endlessly beautiful! Great shot, thank you for choosing Keanu!”
Well done, Saint Laurent, well done.
