Swinton Returns

Tilda Swinton for Pringle of Scotland

PRINGLE OF SCOTLAND are sticking with last season's cover girl Tilda Swinton for autumn/winter. The actress was photographed alongside fellow Scot, and Turner prize winner, Douglas Gordon, both wearing pieces from the Pringle menswear collection. The campaign was again shot by photographer Ryan McGinley, in an abandoned oyster bay in Loch Fyne, and art directed by Neville Wakefield.

"There were really two moods that I felt strongly about for this campaign," Pringle creative director Clare Waight Keller told VOGUE.COM "The first was to use the Scottish landscape in quite a surreal way, where Ryan's spectacular lighting, especially in the night photography, really captured the haunting beauty of Tilda and her surroundings and the uniqueness of Douglas Gordon in a truly stunning combination."

"The second was a slightly more boyish, 'bovver boy' feel, a bit more casual, hanging out at the back of a bike shed," Waight Keller explained. "One of my favourite images is of Tilda in a beautiful mohair menswear suit, very Bowie-esque with a shock of red hair. The combined photographic talent of Ryan's dramatic composition and light and Tilda's luminous beauty have really distilled the blend of modern Scotland and the iconic elements of the autumn/winter collection in perfect harmony."
