Gentle Monster x Tilda Swinton Collaboration

KOREAN eyewear brand Gentle Monster has announced its collaboration with the multi-talented actor, Tilda Swinton.  “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,” says Taye Yun, the Vice President of Gentle Monster USA.

The “high-end experimentation” philosophy harmonises with Swinton’s image, and both combined to create a spectacular outcome. The collaboration has other things to offer. In addition to the collection,  Swinton has created a short film called The Endgame. Working with Erik Madigan Heck, an American artist and photographer, the duo produced an adaptation of The Seventh Seal, written and directed by Ingmar Bergman.

One of the most absorbing moments in the film is watching Swinton’s fencing skills. The film set also coordinates with the design of the collection, including mirrors and reflecting style.
