Wish You Were Here: Cisco

Photos: Cara Stricker

Who? Cisco, model Chic
Where? Black Rock City in the Nevada desert, at the Burning Man Festival.
With whom? I went with my husband George Gorrow (ksubi), Dan Single, Daimon Downey, Cara Stricker (who captured all these magical moments on film) Nik Vanchi and tow brothers from different mothers, Mike Piscitelli and Claudio Cuccu.
The experience? It was absolutely mind blowing. It’s very hard to put into words but I will try. It feels like it’s a place where we all belong to and where we came from. It is pure magic and madness. We saw a double rainbow one afternoon. It was so bright and intense. George thought it was an installation by some crazy lighting people from Denmark, but no, it was a real fucking rainbow!! From art installations to spiritual performances, crazy sexual stuff and 20hr music raves in the desert. No mobile phones worked and nothing could be paid for with money because nothing was being sold. One had to be a part of it to feel the energy at Burning Man. It is the best thing I have ever done in my life and yes I’ve booked already for next year.
Where you slept? RVs, big camper vans which we rented in LA.
What you wore? (Day) My cut off ksubi denim shorts and flowy silk tops. At night it can get really cold so major temperature change. I designed myself a skintight leather catsuit which I got made it was PERFECT!!  I topped it off with a vintage pilot leather helmet that George bought me in Japan. Also we were wearing goggles and moth protection at all times.

Wish You Were Here: Jess Carrera

Star spotting is a daily occurrence for Jessica Carrera, Publicist for Shanahan Management- Australia’s leading actors agency. So when asked if she spotted any one in Corsica the South of France she couldn’t tell “everyone looked so fabulous!”

Where I stayed: casadelmar, heaven!
What I wore: I lived in Alexander Wang tees, sass & bide shorts, Camilla Skovgaard sandals, Chloe sunnies and Invisible Zinc tinted Sunscreen.
What I ate: Buffalo mozzarella with locally grown tomatoes, fresh Corsican figs, baguettes lathered in Foie Gras.
Favourite Beach: the tiny beaches of the Isles Lavezzi, a short boat trip from Bonifacio.  Casadelmar also has its’ own private beach which is gorgeous.
What I read: Beautiful Dark: David Lynch by Greg Olson, I was lucky enough to meet David Lynch in Paris.  I’m a big fan of both his film and his art.
What I drank: Pomegranate Martini’s.
