The Thistle and the Swinton

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
