Ryan Gosling once again has hearts racing as the face of Gucci’s sizzling new luggage campaign — and travel has never looked hotter. 

The actor, 41, has teamed up with the Italian luxury label for its Valigeria ads, which show him striking a pose with GG monogrammed luggage and accessories from the Savoy collection.

Gosling, who is known for his fashion prowess, models everything from tailored suits to Hawaiian shirts in the travel campaign shot by British fashion photographer Glen Luchford.

In one image, the debonair star channels his inner bellhop as he pushes a luggage cart packed with Gucci travel pieces in the ocean surf. 

Another shows him kicking back in the sand and reading a tabloid while surrounded by piles of trunks and duffel bags from the collection. 

Gosling also brings the heat in the brand’s new campaign film, which is aptly set to Heart’s hit ‘Magic Man.’ 

The one-minute video starts with the actor tossing his cowboy hat into a magical trunk before loading his Gucci luggage into the back of his trunk.

The footage includes shots of him eating fast food on the road and tossing cards into a hat in a hotel as he travels toward an unspecified destination. 

Gosling ends up at the beach, where he has to drag luggage through the sand while wearing a suit. The video ends with him stepping inside a large trunk and coming out someplace entirely new. 

‘Travel for Gucci was never purely physical,’ Creative Director Alessandro Michele said in a press release. ‘Gucci is the brand that accompanied the artists, writers, actors, and directors of Hollywood on their journeys… 

‘This is why I wanted the advertising campaign to recount a situationist dimension where the protagonist traverses a “non-place” that is first and foremost a mental place, the same as those who, in the past and present, choose Gucci because they grasp the significance of creativity used to build imaginary places.’

Gosling quietly hinted at the collaboration this summer by wearing Gucci throughout the press tour for his film 'The Gray Man'

Gosling is following in the footsteps of Harry Styles, Lana Del Rey, Jared Leto, and Miley Cyrus, who have all starred in Gucci campaigns in recent years. 

However, the label’s latest collaboration should come as no surprise to Gosling’s fans. He wore Gucci on the red carpet all summer while promoting his new movie ‘The Gray Man.’ 

The Barbie star, who plays Ken opposite Margot Robbie in the highly-anticipated film, often channeled his character with his pastel looks. 

Gosling modeled a seafoam green suit jacket, a yellow-striped button-down shirt, and mint-green trousers by Gucci at the Los Angeles premiere of ‘The Gray Man’ in July. 

That same month, he showed up at the film’s London premiere in a light purple suit jacket worn over pink trousers that were both from the label.
