Exclusive: Erin Wasson Takes Us on a Dreamy Escape to Ojai

Throw Erin Wasson and photographer David Mushegain like a boomerang into the majestic Ojai Valley, and what will come back to you? A dream-worthy fashion story. We wouldn’t expect anything less from the model, whose innate sense of cool-girl style has lead to an array of inspiring looks over the years. So we tested our aforementioned theory early this month, giving Wasson complete creative freedom in a town full of charming haunts and unexplored finds. The vibe: a luxe road trip during the dog days of summer. The look: easy dresses and lightweight separates made for exploring.

Keep reading for our exclusive editorial and interview with Wasson.

Who What Wear:What inspired the creative direction of this shoot?
Erin Wasson:I wanted to show a different side of California, something above and beyond the typical beach culture and pilfered resources that everyone's been over-exposed to. 

WWW: Do you have a favourite look from the shoot?
EW: I really loved the black, suede open-back dress that I wore while checking out books at Bart's.

WWW:You shot everything in Ojai. What do you love about the city?
EW:Ojai has recently become one of my favourite destinations. I feel a strong sense of attachment to it—it reminds me of home, of Texas. What I love most is the community and the scenery; it's a true form of escapism for me.

WWW: What mood were you trying to achieve with the clothes?
?EW: I wanted to take away usual suspects of road trip styling—denim-heavy, rustic pieces—and offer new breath with some dress silhouettes.
