Petra Collins's Los Angeles
The photographer shares five reasons why she loves the city.
22-year-old photographer Petra Collins, who documented Art Basel Miami Beach for W Magazine in December, may have been born and bred in Toronto, Canada, but recently she has divided her time between New York and Los Angeles. In a video for Swedish brand COS, which in the past few months opened its first US boutiques in both cities, Collins offers a peek into her sunny L.A. lifestyle. Here, she shares her favorite things about the west coast.
