In 1986, we asked Bob Dylan, the perennial icon of ’60s cool, a few seemingly simple questions about his inspirations, regrets, favorite games, and even his last slice of pizza. The premise was straightforward: “Sometimes a simple shopping list can be more revealing than a person’s life story.” Thirty years later, we’re presenting a similar set of questions to some of the most interesting models in fashion today. Today, our interviewee is Jamie Bochert, who first caught the fashion industry’s eye in the early ’00s with her Patti Smith-esque looks. She’s now known for both her modeling work and musicianship, and performs under the name Francis Wolf. Check back next Tuesday for more.
