Whaven't seen you at Equinox lately! Have you been slipping?
I have. I've been so frantic since I got back from Paris. And I'm soon going away for another four weeks. 
Where have you been traveling?
I was in Tangier and Marrakech, and in Paris for the couture shows.
When do you actually vacation?
August. I try to take the month off, but I usually have projects in Europe around them, so it tends to be a combination of work and vacation. To be honest, I always have my laptop and I'm always on a deadline. There's a lot of tearing back from the beach to get some copy written.
Do you use Siri?
Tell me what Siri is.
She's your iPhone assistant. 
Of course! I don't, but I fall about on the floor laughing when I hear people friends and colleagues asking Siri for council.
Would you ever use Siri?
I thought there were a lot of things that I'd never do in my life, so I've learned to never say never.
Who in the office uses Siri?
I couldn't be that indiscreet.

Chic checked in with Hamish Bowles at Derek Lam about his gym hiatus and everything Siri-related.

Getting spooky with Band of Outsiders' Scott Sternberg

You shot your Spring campaign in a cemetery. Been to any other spooky places lately?

I’ve been staying at my hotel, Lafayette House, for the last four years. It only has 15 rooms and no lobby or fanfare. Plus, they let a lot of shit go. And there are ghosts!

Have you ever seen one?
No, but I do feel super spiritual sometimes. It might just be something I ate.

Have you ever been in a band?
I play guitar and piano, but I don’t play well with others.
What skill set do you covet?

I wish I were a better typist. 

They look like they’re having fun.

Cindy Adams aired her Siriano grievances—but not her latest dish, alas—to Chic at the designer's show. Drame!

Are you a friend or 
a fan?
Neither. I called him twice, and he was too busy to return it. It was the same week that I had dinner with Oscar de le Renta and kissed Carolina Herrera.

Heard any gossip lately?
I’d never give you that for free.

The accidental eavesdropping and hilarious soundbite-worthy gems from Chic’s chats must be shared. Enjoy!

“Try to look a little drunk in front of the photographers.”—Richie Rich to his Pop Luxe models…”I love Marc Jacobs. His stuff reminds me of Audrey Hepburn.”—Vampire Diaries actress Torrey Devitto at Mara Hoffman…“I’m only seeing Mara Hoffman and then I’m going to Providence, Rhode Island because there’s a huge fashion industry there.”—Shanna Moakler at the show…“No, I don’t make snow angels—I’m very afraid of the cold!”—Emmanuelle Alt at Alexander Wang…“I’ve completely lightened my load. It’s the best excuse ever, actually!”—a pregnant Julia Restoin-Roitfeld at Wang…“I can’t say I’m that familiar with her music. I did like her in 
A League of Their Own.”—New York Giant Ramses Barden, on Madonna, at Lacoste…

Chic fave Wes Gordon basically killed it at his presentation this week. Plus, could he be any sweeter? Not possible! Such a darling. So of course we had to pester him about how he's got that Benjamin Button effect going on (it's not what you probably think it is...) and Ms. Mara. 

You're looking younger! Are you Botoxing? 
Are you kidding! I haven't slept in ages. 

Fatigue fits you well! So, do you think you'll do a men's line someday?
I really want to! The girls in my office look amazing all the time, while I'm in old, ripped-up old jeans every day.

Onto the Wes woman: The collection is Rooney Mara meets Great Expectations. Are you a major Rooney fan?
I like the idea of her, more than the film [Girl With The Dragon Tattoo]. 

You should dress her for the Oscars!
We're still waiting for that red carpet moment. 

Who should Meryl wear to the Oscars?
Hmm. Who should she wear? [After a thoughtful pause, Chic suggests 'Wes Gordon!') Oh, Wes Gordon, of course!
