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!

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?

Louis Vuitton Malletage Doc PM Bag

22/08/2014, Acne, Current Affairs, Givenchy, Louis Vuitton, Prada

Three days after my wisdom tooth extraction, I swung by the Louis Vuitton boutique in Soho after being told by a friend that a huge chunk of Nicolas Ghesquiere’s debut collection for the house had arrived. The last time I went to the store was ages ago when I bought luggage. I had a hard time exercising restraint and self-control because every runway piece in the store was desirable. I love the floral trousers. I NEED the turtlenecks in all color ways and the zip-front jackets. And all the belts too! In the end, I walked out of the store with a couple of knits and the new Louis Vuitton Malletage Doc PM bag.

Oh Mr. Ghesquiere… you’re so dangerous to my bank account!

The Morning Before The Party

Who went from New York to Milan, Paris to Los Angeles (for thirty six hours) then Paris again during fashion month? I did! For a good reason — I went to my first Teen Vogue Young Hollywood event and boy I had lots of fun! Check out this fun video with my friend Andrew the morning before the amazing party.

Louis Vuitton Snow Leopard

05/10/2013, Current Affairs, Louis Vuitton, Menswear, Paris

Many people on instagram have pointed out the obvious, how autumn is my season. They’re absolutely correct. Autumn is, hands-down, my favourite time of the year. I already had a taste of it when I went to Stockholm a few weeks ago but now the cool, crisp temperatures are vastly spreading across the entire northern hemisphere. Mornings in Paris are absolutely perfect. Why can’t it be autumn all year-long? It’s cool enough to wear a nice, thick sweater but not cold enough to ditch my favourite leather booty shorts. I wore look number 22 from Kim Jones’ fall 2013 Louis Vuitton menswear collection (obsessed wih his collaboration with the Chapman Brothers) to Marc Jacobs’ final show (spring 2014) for Louis Vuitton.

Back to Louis Vuitton Basics

06/07/2013, Accessories, Fashion and Style, Louis Vuitton

There was a time in my life when I used to carry (and check-in) designer luggage — back in the days when traveling was a luxury, you know, the odd once or twice a year vacation somewhere far-flung. Wind the clocks forward and traveling is no longer a luxury but an essential and necessary part of my work. I could be in Marrakech one week, Bali the next, and Sydney the other. There are days when I’d wake up in a hotel room and have no idea what time or what day of the week it was. A few friends of mine often joke how I travel more than a pilot.

When you log miles like crazy, it’s practical to ditch your pricey luggage in favor of something sturdy but cheap and disposable. I never understood all these people who are shocked, especially on twitter and instagram, why I use relatively inexpensive bags. For years, I used this unnamed black trolley/roller bag from Chinatown, bought for no more than $30 many years ago, and had traveled to more cities than James Bond. I dubbed the bag my ‘tranny case’ because it kept everything and EVERYTHING I needed, life essentials and all that. It was sturdy as fuck, have been with me through thick and thin, desert (Salt Flats, Utah) and through four feet of snow (Stockholm, Sweden). You should’ve seen how distraught I was when my modest trolley bag died earlier this year. I dropped it on an empty escalator at Zurich airport and the handles broke, rendering the poor case useless.

For two months, I couldn’t decide whether I should buy another inexpensive case or to go for an upgrade. I finally bit the bullet when I visited Bologna last week and bought myself a Louis Vuitton Keepall 45 and Pegasse 55 in the classic monogram canvas. They keyword here is CLASSIC. I could’ve opted for Goyard or something a little discreet such as Epi or Taiga leather at Vuitton but no. No, no, no, no, no no no. And NO to Damier canvas. I often think of the phrase ‘false humility’ whenever I see people carry Damier canvas because in their minds, they WANT something that screams “LOUIS VUITTON” but without the monograms so it’s kind of like counterproductive. Talk about a whole new level of cray. If you’re gonna go for Vuitton, go for the kill. More is more, pile on the logos, pile on the monograms. It doesn’t hurt to be obnoxious from time to time.
