Where do you call home ~
What unexpected destinations have you explored recently ~
Tell us about the shoot location...
Why did you choose Spirits Bay in Northland in New Zealand for the Tigerlily Shoot ~
T.C: We had been to Northland together a month earlier to explore some surf spots up the coast around New Years and finally when we got to Spirits Bay, I thought we’d arrived to heaven. It’s unlike any place I’ve ever seen. It’s so untouched and magical looking. It’s hard to translate in photos or moving image so, I suggest you go for yourself... For having travelled around the world a bunch, I can say that it’s truly unique.

Otherworldly beaches you've discovered & what you love about them ~
Z.S: Spirits Bay. The pink sand, turquoise clear water, surrounded by Tapu (sacred) hills. Wild horses meeting under trees along the banks of the stream. So much to explore. And there’s surf...
Travel is ~
T.C: A good movie, photograph or music can also take me pretty far...
Your favourite music festival and why ~
Tell us about how you styled the looks and your favourite Tigerlily pieces from the shoot ~
Z.S: We really just went exploring and I wore my favourite pieces on each adventure. I love Tigerlily swimwear. It’s really flattering and good quality. I love the bikinis and the cozy knits too.
T.C: Zippy knows best
Tell us about your creative outlets and inspirations ~
Z.S: I love taking photos and making images. Travelling to new cultures is so exciting to me. I take photos of everything, I love new colours and I love the afternoon sun. I’m inspired by artists and women following their dreams.
T.C: We’ve been designing our house in Montauk for the past year which has been a good creative outlet to express our styles, combine them and look for inspiration.

What’s projects are you working on for 2018 ~
Z.S: Creating content for brands is something fun that social media has brought about. Taking photos for myself, for my friends and family.
T.C: 2018 has started off very busy I feel like we had the one week off around New Years and since then have both been working every day, spending lots of time on planes, been doing a lot of fashion film direction and some TV commercials as well which is new for me but has been fun to push myself creatively into new realms.
This shoot for Tigerlily was a great opportunity for Zippy and I to take a couple days and go shoot together which is the nicest thing working with the person you love. We will have to take a month off in September most likely to focus on building our house finally as we’ve been on the process of getting permits for over a year and that’s something I’m super excited about.
Your style is ~
Z.S: Pretty lazy. Vintage pieces I can throw on over a bikini. Jewellery or sparkly accessories dress up jeans and a T-shirt.
T.C: Vintage classics as well, lots of Bell bottoms for me, a good pair of boots... pretty simple throw in a cowboy hat once in a while.
