Fashion house Chanel has unveiled its latest ad campaign starring Oscar winning actress Tilda Swinton.

Swinton was announced as the face of the brand’s 2012-13 Métiers d'Art Paris-Edinburgh collection in February and follows in the footsteps of Lily Cooper (formerly Allen), Blake Lively and Brad Pitt as brand ambassador.

Appointed due to her Anglo-Scots background, the collection is inspired by Mary Queen of Scots with the campaign boasting a traditional Scottish look, ranging from tartan and Highland overcoats.

Speaking of Swinton’s involvement, Chanel’s lead designer Karl Lagerfeld, commented: “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.”
