Ice Queen Tilda Swinton Is Gentle Monster's New Muse
The actress has collaborated with the eyewear brand on a sunglass collection.
Tilda Swinton has recently linked up with Korean eyewear label Gentle Monster on a sunglass collection. Inspired by the actress’ inimitable style, the collaboration features three different silhouettes, including thick acetate frames as well as thin stainless steel options.
“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.
