Alongside a career as an accomplished actress, Tilda Swinton is a definitive style icon, and her ability to swing between androgynous, glamorous and otherworldly has long had the fashion industry magnetized. In a new turn, Swinton has collaborated with ultra-cool Korean eyewear upstart Gentle Monster on a three-piece collection.

You can watch the achingly cool campaign video above, written and directed by Erik Madigan Heck. The mini-movie captures an ethereal Swinton trying her hand at chess and fencing, all while looking superbly sleek in Gentle Monster’s chunky acetate frames, as well as a frameless mirrored lens number that’s pure excellence.

This unlikely new collab from the conceptual aesthetes at Gentle Monster follows a harmonious union with underground faves Hood By Air.

Swinton met the designers behind Gentle Monster in Seoul, Korea, while shooting forthcoming Netflix film Okja with director Bong Joon-ho. The collaboration combines Swinton’s distinct taste and Gentle Monster’s fearless aesthetic and the result is a collection of three striking silhouettes.

According to WWD, the three styles will retail from $250 to $286 and will hit stores including colette, Net-a-Porter and Saks Fifth Avenue on March 1.

Take a look at the entire lookbook for Tilda Swinton x Gentle Monster below.
