Haunted, When the Minutes Drag

We know Tilda can turn it out when it comes to editorial shoots. She seems to morph into another being, for every photo.

Each photographer, each outfit is given justice – but she is forever and always, Tilda.

Her latest shoot is with photographer Tim Walker, for the August, 2011 issue of W magazine. I found the images quite haunting.

A clothes call with Comme des Garçons.

Incidentally, this CDG half jacket is different from the Margiela version, as it has two sleeves. I also love the longer length. In the next phase of my life, I would like to be a gallerist with these pieces of art as my wardrobe.

A being from another world.

The image above reminds me of the desert shoot by Marcus Ohlsson for Velvet Magazine.

Exceptional styling by Jacob Kjeldgaard for this entire shoot. Here, Tilda wears a combination of Acne, Akris and Hilfiger (!).

Swinton, the sartorial surfer, wearing Chanel.

Yes, that is a Chanel jumpsuit – if you can believe it. It’s from Uncle Karl’s dark and gloomy FW11 collection – more on that as leaf colours start to change.

A gothic tale, well told.

That Blumarine coat and dress combination has my gothentic self in a Fall dream sequence, complete with fog.

Lost, in faraway lands - and thoughts.

The image above is my favourite – although it’s hard to choose just one. I love the blurred movement of the Gucci chiffon – one of the multiple layers Swinton dons here. I love the pristine crispness of the top part of her form, against the blue grey stillness of the landscape. I love the loden green of the rocks upon which she appears to float.

I love the power and the poetry of a fashion photograph.

All images are photographed by Tim Walker and styled by Jacob Kjeldgaard and are from W magazine, where you can find all wardrobe details and the accompanying cover story.
