Anthony Hopkins’ latest role? The model for Loewe
Smiling and completely at ease in the role of the testimonial of a fashion label: the award-winning Welsh actor, a living Hollywood legend, scores another winning blow in the Pre-Fall campaign of the Spanish brand. And it is not the first time that he has tried his hand at fashion …
The freedom to wear whatever you want and have fun with fashion at any age passes today through Sir Anthony Hopkins posing for Loewe. Not lace and figs. In the case donuts. Like those, colorful and bling bling that appear on the T-shirt worn by the multiple Oscar winner called in front of Juergen Teller‘s camera by the creative director of the Spanish fashion house, Jonathan Anderson, to tell about the Pre-Fall 2022 collection.
Cinema and fashion meet
Cinema and fashion meet again and the union proves, unquestionably, always a blockbuster: the super star of Hollywood, 84 years old wonderfully worn, smiles in the shots as he points to the Anagram tote bag with studs. In addition to the pop T-shirt, he wears an outerwear with studs, tailored trousers and Flow sneakers with a retro mood. In another shot Hopkins appears with an even more casual look: instead of a T-shirt and coat, a sweatshirt with the brand logo.
Jonathan Anderson continues to surprise by choosing strong and particular personalities from the entertainment world to represent the brand: in addition to the actor, the models in the campaign include among others the protagonist of The Lost Daughter, Jessie Buckley, Kaia Gerber, the 80-year-old artist Lynda Benglis, Japanese Paralympic athlete Maya Nakanishi and Loewe ambassador Josh O’Connor. “It’s about finding people who represent the world of the brand, who are at the same time people I admire and who I want to connect with,” Anderson told WWD.
The designer said he was honored by Anthony Hopkins being a model for a day at the campaign: “I find it totally mesmerizing. He is a true acting legend, of course, yet he was so kind and humble to everyone on set. “
This experience is not the first foray into fashion for the protagonist of The Father. As early as 2017 Hopkins was the face of Brioni’s Fall / Winter 2017/18 advertising campaign. The years go by and there is no denying it: the timeless fashion sense of the star, one of the greatest living artists, is expressed in a thousand facets, all of them, absolutely, from 90 minutes of applause.
