Tilda Swinton is the perfect casting for Karl’s Scottish collection, which was inspired by Mary Queen of Scots. In the campaign she goes back to her Scottish roots, modelling tartan and Highland overcoats in front of medieval tapestries and oil paintings.

Karl said: ‘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.’

Rihanna vs. Topshop

Rihanna’s has filed a case against Topshop, and is currently suing the brand for an apparent $5 million, for using a picture of her face on a T-shirt without her consent.

However, WWD has reports that unlike the U.S., “there is no right of personality” in the U.K., meaning that Topshop’s use of Rihanna’s photo is completely legal — as long as the company purchased it, so if Rihanna wins her case then it would become a landmark verdict.

In a behind-the-scenes video released earlier this week, Rihanna can be seen viewing the collection, which has been designed by Adam Selman under her supervision.

“I made a piece for everybody in my crew, we all have different body types and different tastes,” she says. “Some are braver than others, but, you know, I think like that because that’s how all the women in the world are. We’re all different, we all like different things, we all have different occasions, different moods, different body types.” The collection has been created with her ‘crew’ in mind.

There are jumpers and T-shirts emblazoned with her portrait, tie-dyeand floral prints, and some “sexy” cotton pieces that singer says she’ll “live in”.
