CHANEL Tilda Swinton for the Paris Edimbourg Collection © Olivier Saillant 850x1273 Tilda Swinton to front Chanels Métiers dArt CampaignChanel have just released the first preview of the campaign to accompany the launch of this year’s Métiers d’Art collection. Shown in a remote castle near Edinburgh back in December (I was there, you can read my stories about that incredible show here and here), the collection was inspired by all things Scottish – both its history and its incredible craftsmanship. The images will (as always) be shot by Karl Lagerfeld himself and will feature actress Tilda Swinton.  “Tilda perfectly embodies the Paris-Edimbourg collection. She is of course Scottish, but more than that she is a modern woman, a timeless icon of elegance.” – Karl Lagerfeld.

By the looks of this sneak preview it will be hauntingly beautiful – just like the collection itself.
