Ryan McGinley & Tilda Swinton for Pringle of Scotland







Take one Wünderkind photographer, one Academy Award winning actress, blend in a nearly 200 year old knitwear brand and what do you get? A short film directed by Ryan McGinley featuring Tilda Swinton running around Scotland in beautiful dresses made by Pringle of Scotland.

Pringle is currently using Tilda Swinton as their muse, as she models not only the women’s but the men’s clothing as well, acting as an androgynous in-between. I’m a huge fan of Ryan McGinley’s and I think Tilda Swinton is a very talented actress, s it’s fun to see them collaborate like this. Don’t expect anything deep, this is meant to be pretty images of a pretty girl running around the pretty countrysides of Scotland.

    That chick freaks me out, and I have no clue why.

    I always thought that Tilda is sort of a female version of David Bowie, they’re so look-alike, besides she played an androgynous archangel on Constantine

    I was lucky enough to meet Tilda last week (photographed her for work) in London and she was so charming and funny and looked amazing.
