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. ;-)

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!
The next time you visit Monaco, be sure to swing by the Pavillons de Monte Carlo at Jardins des Boulingrins!
Karl Lagerfeld makes a pro-feminism statement. Watch the full-length video of the Chanel spring summer 2015 fashion show in Paris this week.
Missed yesterday morning’s Louis Vuitton spring summer 2015 fashion show? Here’s the full-length video of the collection.
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.
