Exclusive: Erin Wasson Takes Us on A Dreamy Escape to Ojai
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 favorite 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 favorite 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.

WWW: There is a bit of that road trip vibe in the story. What items should every woman pack for this kind of trip?
