Balenciaga unveiled its Menswear Autumn/Winter 2015 campaign starring Sam Smith over the weekend and it's hot. Shot by Josh Olins and filmed in what appears to be a cellar, the clip channels a mysterious vibe thanks to its moody black and white and eery soundtrack by Andy Stott. Sam looks incredible wearing the collection's staples, and Alexander Wang thinks so too.

"Sam Smith conveys a quiet elegance and a subtle sensuality that are perfect for Balenciaga. He represents both sensitivity and power – the dualities of the Balenciaga man," he said in a statement.

Although he seems to be a natural at modelling, it is actually Sam's first time and he's still in shock about it.

"I never in my wildest dreams thought I'd be wearing these clothes let alone modelling them. So this is a dream come true, and I hope the beginning of a lovely long relationship with Alexander and the house," he said. We hope so too!
