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.’
