“Gentle Monster has always been an avid admirer of Ms. Swinton’s artistry. Whether through film, photography or performance art, her vision and aesthetic is in-line with the Gentle Monster DNA,” Gentle Monster U.S. vice president Taye Yun tells WWD.
Teaming up with photographer Erik Madigan Heck, Swinton stars in a series of campaign images and a short film created for the collaboration. Entitled “The Endgame,” the stunning fashion short pays tribute to Ingmar Bergman’s 1957 film “The Seventh Seal.” The actress is seen challenging herself to a fencing duel, a theme previously presented in Gentle Monster’s 2017 show during New York Fashion Week.
Retailing from $250-286 USD, the Tilda Swinton x Gentle Monster eyewear collection will be available at select retailers such as colette, Net-a-Porter and Saks Fifth Avenue on March 1. Check out the entire range in the gallery above.
