#956 i-D Magazine's NZ special



The latest issue of i-D has just come out and features a whole stack of New Zealanders - Mo Albrecht, Zara Mirkin, Karen Inderbitzen-Waller, Dayne Johnston, Florian Habicht, Lily Montana, Michael Whittaker and Blaire Archibald. The story, aptly titled New Zealand, was photographed by expat Kiwi photographer Rebecca Thomas during a brief stay in Auckland about six months ago. If you'd never heard anything about New Zealand before and you saw this piece I think it's safe to say you'd think the general populace was particularly attractive, well dressed, interesting and talented. Quite right, quite right. The Qs and As are as you'd expect. What are you wearing - various NZ designers, etc. Favourite music - The Smiths, etc. Favourite food - Japanese, etc. Best thing about New Zealand - the air, etc. But Michael Whittaker's answers deserve special attention.



MICHAEL WHITTAKER, 19, MODEL
Star Sign: Aries
What are you wearing? Black jeans and a white tee
Describe yourself... Irrational, impatient, cynical, gentleman, scholar
What music do you like? Taylor Swift
What's your favourite food? McDonalds. Ask anyone
What do you like to do to relax? Spend quality time with Jessica
What do you like to do after dark? As above
What is the best thing about living in New Zealand? My family. For sure
What are your dreams and aspirations? Get a place in New York and get a degree. I will retire from modeling when I do a campaign for McDonalds. It will be an honour.

That's my boy.



GO THE KIWIS!

I LIKE YOU!
