I don’t have too much to say about this collaboration between Luca Guadagnino and Raf Simons for the film A Bigger Splash because its perfection has rendered me speechless. But I’ll give the gist of it: Queen Tilda Swinton plays a (Bowie-esque) rock star recuperating in
paradise Pantelleria, Italy wearing custom and vintage Dior so…you get me? Do you get why I am having difficulty articulating just how wonderful this artistic gift is? Just, look.
From her elegant twist knot beach cover, to her straw sandals, to her white pant suit for attending a traditional island festival, to the blessed white skirt with her drop back black blouse, I just…have no words. Perfection. THIS is art.
Oh. And Ralph Fiennes dances to “Emotional Rescue.”
