Daphne Guinness Stops Time in Haute Living Magazine

Daphne Guinness by Nick Knight For Haute Living | 2012

"Time is infinite, but we are not infinite in it," Daphne Guinness says in the new issue of Haute Living.

Guinness was thinking about time as she styled herself and worked with Nick Knight for a photo shoot in the issue. Incidentally, the images feature watches from Roger Dubuis's Velvet collection, and Guinness recently signed on as the brand's ambassador. In one of the photos, the eccentric style icon is seen swinging upside down from a trapeze.

Likewise, the accompanying interview is filled with Guinness's trademark wit. The ambassadorship seems to have caused her to think a little more philosophically about the passing of time. "In what time are we? Are we in space time?" she asks her interviewer before explaining that she's obsessed with time's precision. "The Julian calendar is off," she says.

"The idea of art and time is something that is perceived and Nick and I worked organically to show that you can do many things," she said later in the interview. "It's better to work with people with whom you know what you are going to get."

A look at the resulting images here in the gallery.
