Make Your Next Move

TV Academy Emmy

Cannes Lion x 5

John Malkovich makes his next move from Oscar-nominated actor to acclaimed fashion designer.

For most of Malkovich’s remarkable life, being John Malkovich meant being an extraordinary actor. But he is at a crossroads—and this time, it’s not in a movie.

Squarespace exists to help entrepreneurs put their ideas out into the world. Instead of short-lived product ads, this global campaign provided the platform to launch John Malkovich's real fashion business.

To have a store, to be able to sell directly to people—it’s what I have always wanted.
