Is Karl Lagerfeld nostalgic for the days of Twilight’s popularity? After frequently tapping Kristen Stewart for multiple projects with Chanel, the always tuxedo-clad designer has lent his photographic talent to shoot Robert Pattinson for Dior Homme’s fall 2016 campaign, WWD reports.
Pattinson isn’t new to the world of Dior, having previously served as the face of the brand’s fragrance. However, the chemistry between the actor and Lagerfeld was explosive. “We approached Robert Pattinson for the Dior Homme autumn 2016 campaign,” Sidney Toledano, chief executive officer of Christian Dior Couture, told WWD. “He was already the face of the Dior Homme Fragrance and he was thrilled to be also the face for fashion. When we told him that Karl Lagerfeld was going to shoot the campaign, Robert was even more enthusiastic and indeed, the campaign is perfectly reflecting the spirit of Dior Homme.”
So how handsome does Mr. FKA Twigs look in the promotional images? In the lead shot above (above), the 29-year-old hunk smolders in a relaxed outfit that’s made up of tailored pants, a plaid shirt, and matching wire-framed sunglasses.
Talk about cool guy ease.
