Visionaire 54: Sport Lacoste
Visionaire 54: Sport

Visionaire 54 is to be released on June 2008!

As you know, if V Magazine is ready to wear, Visionaire is haute couture! Lacoste celebrates its 75th anniversary by partnering with the fabulous folks at Visionaire. The new Visionaire (Visionaire 54: Sport) comes in four volumes. Each volume has full-colour, photographically-printed Lacoste polo shirts featuring artwork by various artists and photographers.

Visionaire 54: Sport is presented in four different sets, each set containing three printed Lacoste polo shirts embedded within its pages — one small, one medium and one large–as well as a book featuring all 12 images. Each set retails at US$250 but if you purchase via Amazon, watch the price drop to $157.50 each. Not bad for three shirts eh? Buy all 4 sets and get 12 shirts — you must be a hardcore Visionaire collector if you do.

Visionaire 52: Private (with Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuitton, Mert and Marcus)

30/10/2007, Books

Visionaire 52: Private

Can you believe it’s already November? Christmas is just around the corner and good lord have mercy on our wallets, it’s gift season once again and the Marc Jacobs store isn’t even open yet! I just ordered 2 copies of Visionaire 52: Private by Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton, featuring photographs by Mert & Marcus. One is for me and one is for my friend who is the most HARDCORE MJLV fan on the face of the planet. That person is so hardcore s/he/it is the type who probably masturbates over images of Marc Jacobs late at night. According to the lovely trannies at Fashion Week Daily, celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe ordered six copies of this book so go figure.

Visionaire 52: Private - Marc Jacobs

What I can’t figure out is whether or not this edition comes with a leather miroir case. I mean, there’s the book case in gold miroir (left), yes, however, there are images floating around the net that resembles a nice nifty case that one can use as an oversized envelope clutch (right), no? When you can’t find anything at Louis Vuitton for under $2,000, three hundred seventy five bucks for a clutch is a fucking bargain! Will my Visionairey/V Mag friends tell me what the whole ordeal is? Many years ago, I got myself the "Where"/Hermes edition (postcards with pictures that David LaChapelle took and came in with an Hermes pouch, the same leather as Hermes HER-bag, and pencil). I got so bored with it so I ended up sending those postcards to people around the world. Little did I know damn thing ended up as a collectible item and you can’t get that issue of Visionaire anymore. Stupid ol queen! Big mistake. Big! Huge!

Visionaire 52: Private is US$375 per copy and is available in chi chi bookstores worldwide or from Visionaire themselves. I got mine from Amazon cause I also I ordered a bunch of books. Might as well get it all from one place. Yes. Books. You read that right. Just because I look like a downright
illiterate scumbag it doesn’t mean I don’t like books. I love books!
They make my shelves look colourful and pretty. I hope it arrives in time though because according to Amazon, the book won’t be shipped until late November/early December. Oh dear.

Visionaire 52: Private - Amazon.com

I’m going to the post office tomorrow. My ebay purchases are starting to pour in.

WHORES DAMN WHORES Y’ALL BETTER SEND ME CHRISTMAS PRESENTS IN THE MAIL. Surprise me! It’s the thought that counts. Whatever you do, don’t send me anything size small. Send me cock! Send me big, huge cock in the mail! Bryanboy.com – MCPO Box 2044, Makati City MM 1250, Philippines.

I love you all!

PS. Shit. There goes my LV ban. LOL.

Deluxe – Dana Thomas: How Luxury Lost Its Luster

Deluxe: How Luxury Lost Its Luster by Dana Thomas

I’ve had this book for quite some time now and boy am I glad to finally have read it. I finished Deluxe: How Luxury Lost Its Luster in less than four hours over a huge bag of M&Ms and a 2-liter bottle of diet coke. I like to read books in one sitting, with no interruptions whatsoever. I like to "detach" myself from reality in order for me to read a book properly. I can’t stand reading something for a few chapters, do something else and then read again. I’m just not one of those people, ya know? Anyway…

Misshapes Book

31/08/2007, Books

MisShapes Book

I’m not really a big fan of "pictures of people" books simply because of the fact that those damn things remind me of high school yearbooks.  Besides, the only ones who are interested at them buy them are the people on the book itself so really, what is the point of it all? Just kidding. One of my favourite books is "Go Sees" by Juergen Teller.

Anyway, for $16.50, you can now buy this 288-page book with over 2,000 images of hipsters, fashionistas, punk rockers, artists, downtown kids, musicians, DJs, celebrities and the characters who represent the young, the bold, the sweaty and the beautiful of Nueva York City life.

I’m gonna buy the MisShapes Book for one reason: I love Sally Singer and I want to see what she wrote on that book.

PS. Speaking of black books and fashion and Vogue and September book launches and stuff, let’s move on to Elle and check out Nina Garcia’s Little Black Book of Style. Yep, that Nina Garcia of Project Runway fame. =)

Must-read: THE BOOSTER by Jennifer Solow

23/03/2007, Books

032307_solowMust-read: THE BOOSTER by Jennifer Solow

Ladies! It’s been a month since I last recommended a book to read and it’s GREAT timing that my author friend (is it because I could only count the number of friends I have using one hand hence the reason why I’m abusing the word ‘friend’ in the last blog posts? kidding) Jennifer Solow emailed me about her book entitled "The Booster: A Novel" published by Simon & Schuster.

What does a chic Manhattan kleptomaniac J.A.P (that’s Jewish American Princess to you) who loses her fabulous job, gorgeous photographer boyfriend and incompetent housekeeper do? She joins a Peruvian high fashion shoplifting ring, of course.

Jennifer told me she interviewed a shitload of rich lady kleptos and undercover FBI agents researching South American shoplifting rings. It’s a high-fashion snitch, swipe and shoplifting bonanza throughout NYC. Mariannnna is that you?

032307_boosterAnyway, the book was a national bestseller… Terry Richardson took photos of her (LUCKY LUCKY BITCH! I WANT TERRY RICHARDSON TO TAKE A PHOTO OF ME TOO WITH CUM STAINS LEFT BY OTHER GUYS ON THE BACK OF MY BRIEFS) in her underwear in the bowery and she was in People, W and Harper’s Bazaar magazine — with Madonna on the page beside hers. Hah!

She’s sent me an autographed copy (woohoo! thanks babe) and it’s on its way to the fabulous turd third world. I recommend that y’all order a copy now on Amazon.com so by the time I get mine, you’ll get yours too! Buy! Buy! Buy! I have a feeling you won’t regret it.

The Booster (Simon & Schuster 2006)
by Jennifer Solow

I’m gonna update my laundry list in a bit. Email me and tell me you love me. My email address is bryanboy@gmail.com or SMS +63.915.785.1492.

I love you all!

P.S. Will someone please find me a Jewish American Prince of my own? I need one with a big cock. Thank you.

Must-buy NOW: FASHION BABYLON by Imogen Edwards-Jones + KATE MOSS!!!!!!!!!

01/02/2007, Books

013107_babylonMust-buy NOW: FASHION BABYLON by Imogen Edwards-Jones (& Anonymous)

The new book by Imogen Edwards-Jones, Fashion Babylon, is the must-buy book of the season.

I always wet my pants every time a new "tell-all" book comes out. Why? It’s soo entertaining to read about the glorious misadventures, the gory mishaps and scandalous revelations of the affluent, the powerful and the fabulous — proof that they’re human and have flaws, too.

[Bryanboy's note: Many of you expressed how y'all miss my verbal diarrhea so here's one for the girls.]

Bryanboy Goes to the Bookstore

Bryanboy Goes to the Bookstore

Whoever said that I’m a blonde girl trapped inside an Asian guy’s body should be shot in the head.

Contrary to what each and everyone of you thinks, I, Bryanboy, know how to read.

While I don’t believe in mass media (I don’t watch TV and I don’t read newspapers), I like to read baby-chick lits and teenage fiction.

I went to the bookstore yesterday and bought 7 books – enough to keep me sane in the next few weeks.

Books

1) here | She’s Got the Beat
2) here | Teen Idol
3) here | Princess in Pink
4) here | The Highs and Lows of Being Mia
5) here | Ripped at the Seams
6) here | Every Boy’s Got One
7) here | Mia Tells it Like it Is

I also bought the November ’05 British Vogue and the latest issue of the Philippine Tatler.

Wanna know what else I got?

Here’s the most blatantly sexist publication in the planet.

They’re so sexist that they even have "NO BOYS ALLOWED" on the darn cover.

Alright, either they’re sexist or they’re teaching young girls on how to be a lesbian.

*kidding*

Gorgeous, innit?

Where was this magazine when I was a young child??????

I’m telling you… I REALLY had a deprived childhood.

That explains my long-term fascination with everything material.

I browsed the magazine and it’s filled with interesting stuff, for kids, that is, from celebrities to gossip, to games, family, books, artwork, everything!

I think this magazine is geared towards pre-teens, if I’m not mistaken.

Bah.

The youth of today eh?

They have access to a lot of things.

Back when I was a child, all I read was fuckin Archie comic books and friggin Sweet Valley Kids/Twins/High/University/Grandkids/Funerals etc.

Bryanboy Loves… and Random Cheesemax

#1 – Bryanboy loves everyone who submitted photos of their bag guts on my new online project, www.InsideMyBag.com. Bryanboy loves y’all and  keep your submissions coming… they don’t have to be designer bags! 

#2 – Birmingham, MI, Dearborn, MI, Collierville, TN, Taylor, MI, Brightwater, New Zealand, Piscataway, NJ, Montreal, Canada, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, San Marcos, California, Scarborough, ONT, Canada, Brooklyn, NY, Las Vegas, NV, Ingleburn, NSW, Australia and of course, people from Framingham, MA.

#3 – I’m long overdue to see my shrink again. I think I’m going nuts. I don’t know. For some strange reason, I heard voices in my head before going to sleep yesterday night. I heard a young boy’s voice saying "Never say ‘I didn’t do it’".

Having some psychiatric disorder is the last thing I want in my life right now.

Or maybe not.

My life is already a big ol psychiatric and sociopathic mess, I should be the poster child for xanax. I bet there’s a ton of psychiatrists out there who would LOVE to get their cold hands on my ass, conduct a study and interrogate me, FBI-style.

#4 – Whether you like it or not, I’m going out tonight. No harcore partying though – dinner with a friend, some cocktails and maybe, just maybe, shopping. It’s time for me to replace my camera and I saw a gorgeous one last week at Sony.

I love you all.

Baboosh!
