The hills have eyes

Though normally the use of animals in shoots can end up looking pretty spooky and vulgar, I’m loving these beautiful images of Swedish model Sara Blomqvist in Rodarte’s Spring collection in the latest issue of Twin, photographed by Ben Toms. I find the “back to nature” setting perfect for this collection which can be seenĀ here.

Black Swan

Today I took my timeout, strolling around in my hood, went to cinema and to seeĀ Black Swan followed by a good dinner at Arbutus. The movie is fantastic, Portman’s performance is outstanding and the clothes designed by Rodarte are so beautiful. In fact I’m still slightly out of balance after watching the movie, swans and ballet are my achilles as I’ve posted earlier and I’ll probably never forgive my dad for taking me out of ballet school as a child and glued me to a pair of alpine skies instead. Well, I guess you cannot change your past right.
