British actor Nicholas Galitzine, known for his meteoric rise in film and television, takes the spotlight as FENDI‘s first global menswear ambassador. This new appointment attests to a blossoming connection between the actor and the fashion giant, one that emphasizes Galitzine’s versatile appeal and FENDI’s evolving menswear narrative.
Known for his stellar performances in critically acclaimed productions such as “Handsome Devil,” Netflix’s “Purple Hearts,” and Prime Video’s “Cinderella,” Nicholas Galitzine has now delved into a fashion adventure with FENDI. His ongoing relationship with the fashion house, a shining jewel in the LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton conglomerate, commenced last year. The actor’s presence at FENDI’s noteworthy Baguette 25th anniversary show and the men’s fall 2023 runway show in Milan underscores this deepening rapport.
Galitzine’s ambassadorship is marked by his leading role in FENDI’s inaugural men’s advertising campaign, shot in Milan by the prodigious Italian artist Nico Vascellari. “Working with Silvia Venturini Fendi and the incredible team — we set out to mirror the effortless cool and elegance of the clothes in the campaign,” Galitzine shared with WWD. The campaign is set to enchant global audiences this month with vivid imagery, both in print and on billboards.
The campaign spotlights Galitzine in a striking ensemble of FENDI’s latest collection. Artistic director of accessories and menswear, Silvia Venturini Fendi, curated key pieces that personify the brand’s elegance and forward-thinking design philosophy. Standout items include an imposing gray poncho with the O’Lock zipper detail, an oversized leather jacket with a relaxed vibe, and FENDI’s signature Peekaboo bag with an all-over monogram. An iconic Baguette style rendered in black leather covered in utility pockets also makes an appearance, alongside the brand new FENDI Shadow sunglasses.
Reflecting on his campaign experience, Galitzine stated, “The campaign was a lot of fun. I came straight from the show where disco was the theme, and that vibe continued into the shoot.” The actor, overcome with emotion, shared a touching moment of camaraderie when “the FENDI family gathered to applaud me as we took the last shot of the campaign. Seeing their faces and feeling their satisfaction warmed my heart and is a moment that will stay with me throughout my career.”
On his career trajectory, Nicholas Galitzine seems to be on an unstoppable ascent. Upcoming projects include Amazon Prime Video’s feature “Red, White & Royal Blue,” MGM’s teen comedy “Bottoms,” and the highly anticipated “The Idea of You” and “Mary & George.” Galitzine’s aim for the future is crystal clear: “I hope to push myself creatively and establish a body of work that is meaningful to people,” he affirmed. “I keep finding new ways to express myself, whether that’s through acting or music and now in fashion. I hope that journey continues.”
Nicholas Galitzine’s fresh appointment as FENDI’s first global menswear ambassador signals not just a successful partnership but also a mutual enhancement of global presence, the actor lending his charm to FENDI’s brand narrative while the fashion house provides a platform for Galitzine to further express his diverse artistry. This collaboration is a testament to the ever-blurring lines between fashion and entertainment, as more actors continue to inspire and influence fashion trends.
