Menswear campaigns keep scoring our favorite well-dressed dudes. Last year, Xavier Dolan appeared in Louis Vuitton's men's campaign (with Jaden Smith in the women's line), Pharrell did Salzburg opulence for Chanel, and Hedi Slimane tapped Tobias Jesso Jr. for Saint Laurent.

For Spring/Summer 2016, Dior Homme have The xx's Oliver Sim leading their campaign, and they've also made a monochrome film set to "Stranger In A Room," the Jamie xx track that Sim featured on last year. Both film and images are shot by Willy Vanderperre, the photographer who was previously behind Sim's super suave Fantastic Man cover in 2013.

The full "Stranger In A Room" film is going online tomorrow, but you can watch a preview of it below, via WWD. It's your standard glossy fashion film, but it's nice to see the In Colour album highlight getting some deserved shine of its own. With Jamie xx's huge London and Paris shows happening next month, the timing couldn't be better for the track to become a sleeper hit for the summer.
