A film featuring Tilda Swinton
FINDHORN is a short film by Johnnie Shand Kydd that captures the essence of bespoke and its effects on the wearer. It is a conceptual exploration into two crafts at the opposite side of the spectrum brought together for the first time and realised in a two-piece garment.
Drawing parallels between the shapes and forms of Tilda Swinton’s local landscape, the viewer sees exaggerated movements echoing the shapes a bespoke client experiences during the fitting process.
In search of the perfect tattoo, white on white becomes a key theme.
Wearing a deconstructed jacket and trouser fashioned from the purest white wool, the subtle luminosity and fluidity of the cloth is juxtaposed against brightly billowing scarves and bleached out-sand dunes.
Over obvious basting stitches draw attention to the processes used in bespoke.
The film is supported by MAC.
