Image Group LA/ABCSam Smith has announced his latest collaboration — and it’s not musical. The singer has partnered with Balenciaga for the fashion label’s new menswear campaign.
Sam tweets that he’s “honored and ecstatic” to be working with the label on their fall 2015 collection. He later posted a series of moody, black-and-white photos from the campaign. In the pics, he sports a selection of tailored coats, turtlenecks and slim-fit pants.
He may be trying his hand at high fashion, but Sam still has singing to do. He kicks off his American tour tomorrow at the Forecastle Festival in Louisville, Kentucky. It’ll be his first U.S. performance since undergoing vocal cord surgery in May.
Speaking of which, Sam on Wednesday night gave his fans an update on his throat condition. “I have been in Boston the last few days to have a check up on my throat, before I embark on my American tour,” he wrote on Instagram. “MY THROAT IS LOOKING BLOODY FANTASTIC. So it’s amazing news. So happy. It’s going to be a really tough month of shows but I can’t wait to see you all, and pray it’s going to be a smooth ride.”
