GIVENCHY SPRING 2020 CAMPAIGN FILM STARRING CHARLOTTE RAMPLING AND MARC JACOBS

Charlotte Rampling and Marc Jacobs are fashion's hottest acting duo for Givenchy's latest campaign.

February 17, 2020

Actress Charlotte Rampling and the fashion designer Marc Jacobs have been unveiled as the stars of the new Givenchy Spring 2020 campaign.

Rampling and Jacobs are filmed taking part in witty, offbeat exchanges. One clip sees Jacobs turn to the camera to declare authoritatively “I am Charlotte Rampling,” before Rampling, too, faces the lens to say “I am Marc Jacobs,” in Jacobs’ voice. Another sees the duo shouting each other’s name in various formats, while a third sees Rampling slap Jacobs in a mock argument.

Waight Keller elaborated on the pairing calling the duo “extraordinary legendary figures,” and concluding: “They captured the brilliant mix of attitudes and spirit that is Paris and New York, the two sides to my Summer Collection.”

The duo’s distinctive personalities take centre-stage in the subtle and surreal film. Across two simultaneous shots, the legendary actress attempts to school the designer in her craft — albeit to mixed success. In a separate Instagram post, a cheeky Marc even gets a clap round the face for repeatedly insisting to Charlotte that she is, in fact, Charlotte Rampling. It’s all but a joke among old friends, though: their friendship goes as the early 00s, when Charlotte appeared in a Marc Jacobs Spring 2004 campaign.
