The Thistle and the Swinton


050613-tilda-swinton-chanel-623

This week I was alerted to the culmination of a strange and powerful union by Amy on twitter.  Amy has earned her merit badge for Swinton spotting and is now an official Junior Swintologist! Applause, applause!  It seems that the Kaiser has contracted an alliance with our favorite galactic being. I wonder if Haider Ackermann is behind a force field somewhere…. but he should have seen this coming- remember the Versailles Chanel show on Wearable Wednesday over a year ago? He doesn’t understand her lack of accessories, but he understands the power! tilda-main_2

Obviously plaid is no kryptonite to her! This collection is so lovely and textural and looks so good against her rawness. You knows? More of the collection is here2 e

I think the Lagerfeld has been planning this for along time!Perhaps ever since he and Choupette sat down to split a diet coke and watch Orlando. Choupette-Lagerfeld-Cam-NET-A-PORTER

I’m going to need this all boxed up and sent to the Grievance headquarters, please. Merely for further analysis. Formal study, you know. That may or may not include me rolling around in it with 3 dachshunds. tilda-swinton-collection-chanel-paris-edimbou-L-zw952L

  1. It’s like two forcefields coming together. Love. The Kaiser is bonkers but I love that he lives and breathes what he does. Tilda gives gravitas to all that she touches. Inspired union. I’m off to look at the whole collection.

    Karl is just a master…no doubt about it and any man who just wants to sit and pet pussy gets my vote. Swinton is in a league of her own…anyone else with that face would be having her eyebrows waxed and some blush added…but not her! Gorgeous clothes!

  3. Tilda in Chanel makes my heart sing. Tilda Tilda Tilda…Yeah! where the hell was I a year ago when you holla’d that neck piece at me? Hibernating, rolled up in a ball of plaid I guess.

    Stunning – she has such an ability to transform herself. Every time I see a close up though I just want to buy her some mascara.
