Changing of the Seasons

13/03/2011, Current Affairs, Fur, Michael Kors, Prada

March is a very tricky month, especially if you’re in the northern hemisphere. As the bitter days of winter come to an end, dressing up can be challenging… and exciting at the same time. All the stores are carrying the new season’s finest livery. The latest and the greatest are up for grabs. But how do brave the streets in your spring best when the temperatures are slightly above freezing outside? I just top it all off with a strong, bold fur coat.

Prada Menswear Fall Winter 2011 Fashion Show Invitation

Opening my stack of invites during fashion week is always fun. I always beam with delight whenever I get a seat with a clear line of sight. When it's a front-row seat at a hot ticket show, such as Prada, it's a true honor and a pleasure.

Bryanboy for Vogue Nippon February 2011: The New Force – Bloggers Beat

Bryanboy for Vogue Nippon February 2011

February next year is gonna be an interesting month for me, magazine-wise. I was shot for the cover for a Singaporean fashion magazine a few weeks ago — I can't wait for you to see the end result. It's a MASSIVE surprise and you'll be shocked.

Meanwhile, I took part at a shoot for the amazing folks at Vogue Nippon last year and now their February 2011 issue (Karen Elson in Prada cover) is out. Here's my double page spread for their editorial called "Bloggers Beat".

Speaking of Japan, I'm currently stranded at Tokyo Narita airport and I'm just passing time at the lounge. My connecting flight has been delayed. Wish me luck. I can't wait to go to my next destination.

Prada Fantasy Motionbook Lookbook Fall Winter 2010

Prada Fantasy Motionbook Lookbook Fall Winter 2010

One of the things I love most about Prada is that Miuccia is never afraid to push the envelope. She's one of the very few fashion designers who actually makes you think about their work, not once, not twice, but over and over again. Everything she creates has some form of an intellectual reference. I don't visit official brand websites very often because I find them too static and boring but Prada's web presence is a visual feast. I love her fall/winter 2010 fantasy lookbook and motionbook.

Thoughts?

Prada Sunglasses

Prada Sunglasses

As you know, I'm out of fierce sunglasses. I still haven't recovered from the loss of my precious Marc Jacobs a few months ago. I ended up buying a pair of black Prada sunnies at Nordstrom when I went to Portland in September before fashion month began.

In Milan, I picked up the same pair of sunglasses in two different colours: bright yellow and red.

Prada Spring Summer 2011 Womenswear Final Walkthrough

I want to save my favourite for last but here’s the view from my seat at the spring/summer 2011 Prada show a few days ago.

What is there not to love about this collection? The colours are amazing, the accessories (shoes, bags, sunglasses) are super chic. The banana and monkey prints are whimsical, the furs are to die for and of course, the stripes… I love stripes! Hands-down one of the best in Milan. I’ll do my best to go for a re-see if I have the time. I’m leaving for Paris tomorrow night.

Playing Catch Up

Playing Catch Up

Just a quick note to let you guys know that I need to play catch up with you. Please hang with me. Milan shows are in full swing and I still have a ton of NYC-related posts to share. Always remember that a fashion season lasts longer than a week. Or two.

It's hard being an independent blogger with no one but myself to rely on. I have no assistants, no nothing and when you spend the whole day watching the shows, finding time to sit down and actually work is very, very rare.

Hang in there!
