An alien winter

6 Katia Pershin

My fall project collaboration with the talented photographer Katia Pershin, make-up artist Kimberly Tessier and Jazmin Katz of Models International Management. We shot at my cottage in Quebec near Wakefield and enjoyed fireside preparation. The inspiration for this shoot came from my autumn walks around the cottage. At this time of the year, the leaves have fallen, covering the ground with a beautiful cloak of burnt orange or butter yellow. The trees are bare and the woods seem deserted. What a scene for some alien beauty to land in, no? I would envision her, like some Lady of the Lake, wandering through the woods, exploring this new, quiet land.

Of course, she’s dressed somewhat appropriately. Aliens obviously have access to the Weather Network and so she would know that the weather was cold. Our Loreena McKennitt of Mars has morphed into human form and put her own twist on this f/w 2013 season’s looks courtesy of Coclico/Green Tree Eco-fashionEileen Fisher/Holt Renfrew, Judith & CharlesNadia TarrPeople Tree and Young Oak Vintage.
