HUME’S COUNTRY LIFE: Omnipresent in the Nineties, Kirsty Hume retreated from the fashion scene after marrying Donovan Leitch, but has since quietly returned to modeling. The blonde-haired Scot, who has a home in Woodstock, N.Y., appears in Lily Ashwell’s spring look book. Ashwell, a Central Saint Martins graduate, grew up in an artsy household. Her mother Rachel founded the 25-year-old home decor company Shabby Chic and her father David is a painter. Lily Ashwell handpaints the prints that are used in her signature collection. She launched the vintage-inspired LA-made collection for holiday 2012.

Photographer Amy Neunsinger connected Ashwell with Hume, who is a friend, for the shoot in another friends’s Laurel Canyon cabin. Country girl kind of images are being used for marketing materials and online. Ashwell also whipped up a folksy sort of video with a song written and performed by Jade Castrinos of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros.
