If this week is any indication, I'm going to have to start treating local lookbook releases the way Ned does music videos. (Lookbook Lunes, anyone?) The next one up is solidly set in this polarly vortexed winter, with the somewhat mournful/hopeful title "Rituals to Bring the End of Long Nights."
The rituals depicted here seem to call for holing up in a snowy cabin with your best tattooed girlfriends, wearing long johns and wool socks while chopping wood and taking hot baths with tree pieces—which seems as healthy a way to pass the weather as any. Plus the photos, which are a showcase for Cobra Cult jewelry, are quite lovely. Taken by the buzzed-about Amanda Leigh Smith it also features some of the local women who are defining the motorcycle/camping/Poler vibe that so many are looking to right now.
