Oliver Pilcher's film for D.S. Dundee
It's a slow start to the new year and not much is happening in the world, eh-hem, so we're continuing to post on the fashion and film front.
Just before Christmas we visited the pop-up shop of D.S. Dundee, a neo-sahib label, and met its proprietor Oliver Pilcher, a noted photographer, and the grandson of Scottish novelist Rosamunde P.
Pilcher has made a short film to tout D.S. Dundee, inspired by Patrick Gordon Duff Pennington's poem "The Crossing of the Waters." The film, a sort of two-minute "Atonement," was done for a tuppence, and it's a testament to what you can do for that with today's machines. My screen-shot from the opening is above (apologies for the quality, and don't let that discount the foregoing).
Look for Pilcher's forthcoming editorial work on the Outer Hebrides.
