On holiday with Tilda Swinton in I Am Love

Another holiday selection of products, this time based around the TIlda Swinton film ‘I am Love’. It’s a mix of a very traditional bourgeois European style with a brilliantly fresh colour palette. The Cynthia Rowley for Roxy towel started it all off, and I can imagine that someone like Tilda Swinton’s character in the film would have an old-fashioned soap on a rope. John Lewis’ nubuck belt is the precise kind of high-quality flash of colour featured in the film, a real pastel-ly sorbet yellow that she wears with neutral tans, beiges and khakis. The Passarella death squad dress is very Swinton, with its elegantly androgynous cut and the Opening Ceremony sandals add a lovely touch of fun. A tanned leather shopper is essential, all you’d need is a big fresh bunch of Italian basil and a copy of Corriere Della Serra poking out. Tilda wears a fair amount of Hermés orange, hence the bangle, which when worn with the shorts makes for another I Am Love-esque look.
