Last March, Italian fashion house Versace announced Oscar-winning actor Cillian Murphy as the ambassador and star of the new Icons campaign, now unveiled.

Shot by the renowned fashion photography duo Mert & Marcus, the images that make up the portfolio show the minimalist side that, from time to time, the luxury brand has. In them, the Irishman appears wearing elegant looks from the corresponding collection, where the colour black is especially predominant.

Donatella Versace, the company’s creative director, is more than happy with the new signing and has stated it in a press release as follows: “For me, Cillian is one of the best actors of today. Exceptionally talented and kind person I admire and respect, looking his best. Very Versace.”

While Murphy commented: “Collaborating with Donatella – from sharing image references to selecting the music of Fountains D.C. for the video – resulted in a campaign that reflects who I am. The collection of well-cut, empowering designs made from great fabrics suits me perfectly”.

Both parties seem to be a great fit – can think of a better team? Take a look at the images from the Versace Icons campaign below:
