A High Wind in Jamaica - Conde Nast Traveler March 2011

In the '40s, the flamboyant Errol Flynn and James Bond creator Ian Fleming fell for the island, in the '50s Noël Coward hosted a parade of A-listers in his Firefly paradise, and Mick, Bianca, and Keith alighted in the '70s.

The Inspiration:

"My dream of happiness: a quiet spot by the Jamaican seashore . . . , hearing the wind sob with the beauty and the tragedy of everything. Sitting under an almond tree, with the leaf spread over me like an umbrella." —Errol Flynn


Free People February 2011 Catalog by Jason Lee Parry

Jason Lee Parry is not only one of my favorite photographers but he's also an old friend. Jason is so talented at telling a story through his photography. His photos are always so interesting and sexy and just fucking cool. Jason says his ideas really start to flow when he is in his tent in his living room, drinking whisky for days on end. Read more of his interview from the Free People shoot here
