The Superette Magazine Issue Two is out now at all good Superette stores. Covered by Emily Theyers in moody black, inside you’ll find an array of content, all with a Super theme, including: an interview with Design Folio founder (and my former boss at Urbis Magazine) Claire Sullivan titled Super Design; a 24 hours in Vanvouver story titled Super Travel; a Selby-styled in your space shoot titled Super Inside; and a Super Profile on one of my favourite Aucklanders and the proprietor of the best store in New Zealand, Cameron at Flotsam and Jetsam. Plus, for all you lovers of boy/girl sexy-times editorials, there’s a Steve Tilley-lensed shoot featuring upwardly mobile Kiwi models Christopher Landon and Courtney Fallow (who I actually shot together in Milan last year, holla).
The team at Superette were kind enough to include me in a special on bloggers, alongside Zoe Walker and Natalie Smith of So Much To Tell You, Kimberly Gordon of Wildfox and Yenny Seo of Studded Hearts (interview below). Good times had by all.

Isaac Hindin Miller is a fashion blogger who blogs daily as Isaac Likes, and is probably best known in New Zealand for his antics sneaking backstage at fashion shows all around the world. Isaac’s objective and frank reporting style is refreshing, and his blog keeps us on our toes when it comes to everything from local to international fashion news.
When it comes to fashion blogging, Isaac believes the secret to success is – “to be everywhere, show up to everything, be nice to everybody and work as hard as you possibly can. If you’re everywhere then you’re not going to miss any opportunities, if you’re nice to everyone then you’ll always have supporters and if you work hard then people will want you to be part of their team.”
We chatted to Isaac for a little more insight on the man behind the words.
WHAT DO YOU BLOG ABOUT?
Fashion – menswear and models and industry news, reviews and interviews from the backstage, front row, workroom and runway.
IF YOU COULD SUM UP YOUR BLOG IN THREE WORDS WHAT WOULD THEY BE?
I LIKE YOU!
WHEN AND WHY DID YOU START YOUR BLOG?
I originally started it as a reaction to what I saw as very vanilla fashion writing in New Zealand. ACP had just bought Runway Reporter and everything I was reading sounded like regurgitated press releases. And if there’s one thing I don’t like, it’s regurgitated press releases. Then, when Isaac Likes began to get a higher profile, it seemed like a fantastic way to travel the world.
WHEN YOU AREN’T BLOGGING – WHAT CAN YOU BE FOUND DOING?
Watching Entourage, eating Belgian biscuits at Bambina or talking to my mum on the phone.
ANY PLANS TO EXPAND ON YOUR BLOG?
One of these days!
WHAT ARE YOUR BIGGEST INFLUENCES OR INSPIRATIONS?
Expat New Zeland writer Tim Blanks, my parents, and anybody who succeeds in a massive city like New York.
Live … Eden Terrace
Blog … My bed.
Eat … Bambina.
Sleep … My bed!
Travel … wherever and whenever I can.
