James Marsden in Hugo Boss Fall/Winter 2017 Campaign

OWNING THE JOURNEY. Actor James Marsden stars in Hugo Boss’s latest “Own Your Journey” campaign, showcasing the latest menswear collection for the season

Comic book movie fans will recognize James Marsden for his role as Cyclops in the original X-Men movie trilogy, and the ladies will better know him as the main man in the movie “The Notebook” while younger movie-goers may remember him as the doting prince charming from “Enchanted”. Currently one of the stars in the critically acclaimed sci-fi show “Westworld”, Marsden has been chosen to be the new face for Hugo Boss’ Fall/Winter 2017 campaign dubbed “Own Your Journey.

In the new campaign Marsden dons a sharply tailored two piece suits and a nautical-inspired outfit. To better understand the nautical journey theme of the campaign, one must watch the fashion film. Although the connection with the sea is not that apparent, in the film Marsden talks about his journey towards stardom in Hollywood. We can only guess that the ocean is a metaphor for the challenges that he had to face to reach his goal.

Below is the Hugo Boss fashion film featuring James Marsden. Take a look and interpret for yourself the connection between his story and the sea.
