Lindsey Thornburg Channels David Lynch
Lindsey Thornburg built her business on “witchy” felt cloaks. For years, she cut up old Pendleton blankets found in her grandfather’s closet and at thrift stores, and for Fall, the designer officially partnered up with the heritage brand for the first time to create three of her signature mantles from scratch (prices start at $1,380). Thornburg shot the lookbook featuring those co-branded pieces (as well as the rest of the collection, which is now in stores) in Snoqualmie, Washington, the small logging town where David Lynch’s cult television series Twin Peaks was filmed in the nineties. Fans of Lynch’s eerie thriller will recognize landmarks including the “Great Northern Hotel” and Snoqualmie Falls from the show’s opening credits, which the model poses in front of. That epic waterfall segment almost didn’t happen. “When we [Thornburg and photographer Olivia Malone] arrived, we didn’t realize the most important setting for the shoot, the ominous waterfall, was under construction. All paths were closed and the views were obstructed by cranes,” Thornburg told Style.com. “Luckily, that night, after location scouting, we went to a small strip mall and had a glass of wine, and complained to the waiter about not being able to access the Falls. He just so happened to know the crane operator for the dam being built, and the next evening, they lowered us down 500 feet in the crane with a harness on to get our two photos in front of the falls. It felt very beautiful how the plan came together without force.” Here, Style.com has a first glimpse at the shots.
