ADVENTURES IN BIG SUR
by ROB HILL photographed by TODD HIDO
The bewitching and beautiful wilderness between Carmel and Monterey on California’s HWY 1 became a mystical destination for outlaw healers, earthy poets, literary louches & progressive architects in the mid-20th Century. TREATS! heads to the misty forests of Big Sur in search of the mysterious pull of the place, both then and now, that early Spanish explorers named El Pais Grande Del Sur.

Cardiff, Wales, is a long way from the scorching California desert—but Welshman Ioan Gruffudd fit right in with his fashionable tough guy swagger. TREATS! sets up camp in the dusty badlands, Triumph motorcycle in tow, to show off the latest Varvatos, Dior, Burberry, Diesel, All Saints and Prada menswear. “I love the desert, but I’d never survive a night out there...” the Cardiff boy charmingly announced at the end of the day.

“Upon her silken avalanche of down/Dying she breathes a long and swooning sigh/And watches the white visions past her flown.”

Between light & shadows, love & lust, dreams & fantasies, lies sensual eternity
by JENNY SUNDEL
The legendary 76-year-old British-born photographer and designer has broken all the taboos of photography in his illustrious career: He incorporated black models before anyone; his sensual close-ups of body parts, including female nipples, made people gasp; and his edgy art design for NOVA magazine shook up a stale publishing world. TREATS! meets with the iconic photographer in his Parisian pied-à-terre to talk photography, women & his Pirelli calendar odyssey.

THE FIRST MODERN WOMAN
by SARAH HASSAN
Early-20th Century Paris was dominated by men— artists, thinkers, writers, philosophers—but it was a woman that beguiled them all and set Parisian cafe society a flutter. Novelist, sexual libertine, erotic lighting rod and, eventually, respected stateswoman, Sidonie- Gabrielle Colette broke through the social decorum’s of The City of Lights with her wit, audaciousness and scandalous affairs—from singer sensation Josephine Baker to her pimply stepson.
