“This is the best thing to happen in fashion”.
Keanu Reeves is the new face of Saint Laurent, as images of the new campaign – featuring Neo himself – went live on the brand’s Instagram account. As of last count, each of the images has almost 100,000 likes a piece.
The campaign was shot by fashion stalwart David Sims, and features the 54-year-old actor sporting chin-length hair (similar to his eponymous role in the John Wick series of films).
In one campaign shot, Reeves wears a pin-striped blazer, black shirt and aviator sunglasses. In another, he wears one of the brand’s signature black leather jackets, along with black jeans and a polka-dot shirt. The final photograph features Reeves with eyes closed, wearing a black aviator jacket with a shearling collar.
It seems to have attracted a good deal of positive reception, from both Matrix-fans and the fashion crowd. Reeves has been applauded for his work, with one fan writing on the @YSL Instagram page “finally, an icon appearing in a YSL ad”. Another fan proclaimed it was “the best thing to happen in fashion”.
Keanu Reeves has been on a high since the original John Wick film released back in 2014. The film – which sees Reeves play the titular assassin – had wide success, leading to two sequels (with the most recent John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parebellum slated to launch on May 14).
But that’s not all he’s known for. The actor (who recently announced to fans that a sequel to the 1989 cult classic Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure) is widely regarded as one of the nicest men in Hollywood.
In 2011, he was pictured giving up his seat on the subway to a woman. And in March 2019, he was seen assisting airline passengers whose flight had to make an emergency landing. Reeves has also set up a private foundation which helps children’s hospitals and cancer research.
Previously, Travis Scott was the face of Saint Laurent – the rapper was chosen by the brand’s creative director Anthony Vaccarello.
