Holt Renfrew – fall look book
April 21, 2020

Since the Covid 19 lockdown started, I’ve been tackling a lot of organizing projects around the house. Today’s challenge was the magazine shelves in the basement. Surrounded by copies of Azure, House & Home, Elle Decor, Australian Vogue Living and many more mags, I came across the 2003 fall look book from Holt Renfrew, which was shot at our cottage. The creative team included a number of friends including Sandy Kim, Gabor Jurina, Jenn Cranston and Gabor Jurina. They shot for a week at our place and captured some terrific moments. Since there isn’t much happening in the present I thought it would be fun to take a look back.

These two pics were taken at the back door and in the bedroom respectively. Stylist, Jenn Cranston brought in the old wooden crate and I realize now that I need one like that!

While i can’t imagine wearing a tux or skin tight leggings at the cottage, the yin and yang contrast of dressy attire against a rustic background is super gorgeous.
