Hugo Boss, the initial “classic man” brand appealing to sophisticated, well-garbed professionals, has recruited Grace “Gracie” Hartzel for their recently launched Fall/Winter 2015/16 ad campaign. Anime-obsessed and tremendously goth-inspired Hartzel may seem an unexpected choice as the face of the brand, but the model stands tall, towering over the camera looking chic as ever, proving an excellent candidate for the German-based brand.
Hartzel’s latest work includes strutting for Couture Week shows like Chanel, Dior and Atelier Versace. Just last month, the model posed for Valentino’s Fall/Winter ad campaign and covered i-D magazine’s Summer 2015 35th Anniversary Issue, which also featured famed models Kate Moss, Joan Smalls and more.
Hartzel flaunts her medium-length chocolate brown tresses and signature bangs in all four looks. Look one shows the Grace in a striking black and white snake skin print trench with and belted waistline over a solid black turtleneck sweater.
Grace cradles a grey clutch whilst donned in a thick forest green coat perfect for a chilly winter day. The next look features the model in a black trench with printed cuffs, a dress similar to the trench from the first look peeks underneath.
