There may be a chill in the air, but you’ll stay warm, cozy and oh, so stylish in these luxurious knitwear pieces.
Fashion Stylist: Janine Metcalfe | Photos by Jeffrey Bosdet
The inspiration for this fashion feature, says stylist Janine Metcalfe, came from photographer Jeffrey Bosdet’s suggestion of Parry Bay Sheep Farm in Metchosin as the shoot location. “It seemed such a natural choice to showcase the textures and shapes of knitwear,” she says, noting they chose the model, Claire Bates, for her fresh skin and rich, brunette locks cropped into a casual bob that spoke to the laid back sophistication of the clothes she wears here. “Claire is also a dancer, and she moves so gracefully, she really brings the garments to life. The result is a sort of wholesome, innocent scene, reinforcing the magic of rural life. We had a lot of fun!”
