Victor Cruz is scoring in the fashion world. The New York Giants star is set with his first major campaign, for Givenchy.
The fall/winter campaign features Cruz in a striped head-to-toe look and an all black ensemble.
“Words can’t even describe how excited, humbled, proud and happy I am right now,” Cruz posted on Instagram. “Being the face of @Givenchyofficial is one of the biggest accomplishments of my life off the field.”
Words can't even describe how excited, humbled, proud and happy I am right now. Being the face of @Givenchyofficial is one of the biggest accomplishments of my life off the field. I want to personally thank my very good friend @riccardotisci17 for choosing me. I wish nothing but continued success and blessings towards the future. Can't wait for the show on Friday! 🙏🏾
The styles were shot by photographers Mert Atlas and Marcus Piggot, under the style direction of designer Riccardo Tisci.
Unfortunately for FN, the shoes aren’t featured. But we already know Cruz is a self-proclaimed sneakerhead. In fact, he owns about 350 pairs of shoes.
“100 percent [I’m a sneakerhead.] There is no other way,” he told FN. “Anybody who has dedicated a guest room in their home, it’s safe to say they are a true #sneakerhead.”
In fact, he even has a system for organizing his collection.
“It’s by Jordan 1s, Jordan 2s, Jordan 3s, AirMax, AirMax 1, Flyknit, AirMax 90,” said Cruz. “It’s all in order.”
Although Cruz is no stranger to the world of fashion, this is definitely his biggest campaign to date. He has also worked with Gap and Mrporter.com.
