New Season, New Tracks

25/10/2014, Givenchy, Isabel Marant, London, Louis Vuitton, Music, Phillip Lim

Remember that time back in the dark ages when iPods were all the rage and good ol’ Uncle Karl Lagerfeld went on a publicity spree showing off his collection of over 100 iPods? One could only imagine having a personal iPod nanny at their disposal. I’m honestly have no clue whether or not iPods are still around (hint: too lazy to google) but the idea of having my own slave updating my iPhone and my laptop with all the latest tracks is kind of amazing, no?

Here are some of my favorite new tracks perfect for the new season. Autumn is upon us bitches! If you see me werq, I mean walk, the streets with my headphones on, the likelihood of me listening to one of these tracks is quite high. Enjoy!

Purity Mode By Way Of Balenciaga

25/10/2014, Balenciaga, Current Affairs, Monte Carlo

White, in my humble opinion, is probably the chicest non-color color (if that makes sense) out there. It takes a certain kind of person to be able to pull off the color white. It requires an awful lot of discipline and self-control not to mix a white lewk with anything else. I always get jealous of people who pull off white garments in such an effortless manner. White exudes confidence. I always joke with my friends that once I’ve made it in life, I’ll wear nothing but white. I bought this cute top at Balenciaga while trolling the store on Saint Honore in Paris in between shows.

The Big Breakfast

22/10/2014, Alexander Wang, Current Affairs, Louis Leeman, Louis Vuitton, Monte Carlo, Prada

I think it’s interesting how I’ve turned into a breakfast person over the years. I’ve spent most of my youth going to bed when the sun rose up. The word “breakfast” was certainly not part of my vocabulary back then. I remember hating on “breakfast” for many, many years. I thought it was pointless and excessive. Why eat when you’re gonna have lunch in a few hours later anyway? I’m ok with my morning coffee and orange juice, thanks very much.

These days, a I can’t live without a full breakfast. It’s my favorite meal of the day. A man cannot liven Starbucks Venti Americano and Marlboro Lights alone. Bring me that plate of meat, y’all! Mama needs her morning dose of protein!

I have no idea what triggered my love for breakfast. Hmmm. I have a theory that it has something to do with the fact that I spend more time in hotels than in my apartment. Free food everyone, free food! Breakfast buffets are also very colorful and pretty.

Another theory is that as I’e been waking up anywhere between 5 and 6 in the morning each day. Cue #oldpeopleproblems. I *love* waking up early. I always feel superior whenever I wake up before everyone else. I feel like a proper person, a real responsible adult. I’m also very productive in the mornings. When I wake up at such ungodly hour, it’s inevitable for hunger to strike, therefore it’s my cue to hit the buffet table.

Are you a breakfast person?

Bryanboy Goes To College Episode 1

08/10/2014, BryanCollege, Current Affairs, Teen Vogue, Videos

I’m thrilled to share to you my new project with Teen Vogue — a new web series called “Bryanboy Goes to College“. I’ll be traveling around the United States to feature and stylish collegiate girls (and boys) about their personal style. To kick off the series, I interviewed a number of cute and cool kids in New York where I live.

First up is Madison! She even wrote a song for me…. and I sang parts of it. Yikes! Cue nails on the chalkboard. ;-)

Les Pavillons De Monte Carlo

04/10/2014, Events, Fashion and Style, Monaco, Monte Carlo

Like the old saying goes, follow the signs! I think it’s amusing and ironic how, out of all the inflight movie selections, I ended up choosing to watch the film “Grace of Monaco” starring Nicole Kidman on the flight from JFK to London City airport less than a month ago. The movie made me curious about Monaco and I found myself asking how and why I haven’t gone there. Little did I know that was a sign from the powers that be! Fast forward to yesterday evening (after two plane rides and a chic helicopter transfer), I attended the inauguration of the new Les Pavillons de Monte Carlo, a gorgeous retail complex in the heart of Monte Carlo. HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco cut the ribbon and opened the festivities.

The Monte Carlo Societe des Bains de Mer commissioned architect Richard Martinet, working with Cherif Jahlan, to design the Pavillons de Monte Carlo. For the next four years, the cluster of five modern, off-white aluminium structures inspired by the pebbles found on Riviera beaches will serve as temporary “pop-up” housing for some of the world’s prestigious brands such as Balenciaga, Boucheron, Saint Laurent, Akris, Miu Miu, Sonia Rykiel, Alexander McQueen, Bottega Veneta, Lanvin, Chopard and more.

I’ve never been to Monte Carlo or Monaco before so it was amazing to be welcomed in such spectacular environment. I had so much fun at the event!

After the Valentino show, I went to the Palais Royal to preview 3.1 Phillip Lim’s collaboration with BLITZ Lane Crawford. It’s Phillip’s first collection of exotic skin (American crocodile) handbags.

The collection features three of Phillip’s popular handbag styles, the 3.1 Minute clutch, the Mini Ryder and the Wednesday, made from fine American crocodile skin. Each style is available in two colorways, jet black and jade green. They come in a very limited quantity of no more than 20 pieces per style.
