With her penchant for armor and feathers, the fashion muse Daphne Guinness has been to known to turn heads. But in her short film “The Phenomenology of Body,” the beer heiress cum director puts the politics of fashion on display. Taking the viewer through a revolving journey of how clothes have defined, constricted and liberated women throughout history, Guinness presents a stark catalog of vintage, new and costume pieces. The result — a spare and thoughtful voyage set to “Great Release” by LCD Soundsystem — reveals both the warrior and swan in Guinness. T magazine’s Web site unveils the exclusive short.
