A weeklong party at the Cuixmala estate in Mexico, where we went loco for DJ Nick Cohen’s dirty thirty. Warm sun, beach burritos and lots of our favourite mezcal tequila. Lusting to go back, let’s relive highlights from paradise…

Yeojin Bae and I have enjoyed countless shoots together season after season, and it’s always a pleasure to style & shoot her precise tailored collections. Here some exclusive outtakes from her latest AW14 range and collaboration with Metalicus.
What was your inspiration?
Yeojin Bae AW is confident, smart and sexy combined with a natural bohemian vibe, which model Cisco perfectly represents.
What have you enjoyed the most about collaborating with Metalicus?
I really like collaborations as you get a shared outcome, by putting your creative aesthetic whilst working within the DNA of another brand. With Metalicus it was about using stretch fabrications, such as jersey and knitwear and keeping within their philosophy of versatility and layering. Personally there are so many pieces from this collaboration that I will be wearing with ease day to day.
Who was your first boyfriend? My first serous boyfriend who I introduced to my parents is now my husband who I first met 17 years ago.
How big is your wardrobe?
It spans across my parents place in Sydney, and far too many rooms in my place in Melbourne. I have been a designer now for over 20 years, and I keep favorite pieces from almost all the collections I have designed.
Where is your head at right now?
Wanting to remain on summer holidays but deadlines looming in finishing Spring Summer Yeojin Bae, and my contemporary line YB J’AIME.
What’s your guilty pleasure?
Dark chocolate every day
What do you collect?
Vintage scarves and textiles from the 20s and 30s.
Beating Monday blues in pastel hues and yet another working week begins. The departure of Summer dawns down heavily on us so we’ve decided to keep the dream alive with a wistful dialogue of muted pastels & crisp whites.
