City of Angels

Published by bryanboy

If it wasn’t for the Italian photographer who let me use his cellphone to call my driver after the Miu Miu show ended (my French phone ran out of credit), I probably wouldn’t have made it to Charles de Gaulle airport in time to catch my flight to Los Angeles. I may have forgotten your name but I will never forget that random act of kindness — THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

I’m currently here in the city of angels for the BOSS Eyewear campaign shoot. It’s probably one of the most intense shoots I’ve ever done in my life but I definitely had lots of fun! You’d be surprised how every detail of the shoot – scenes, set, shadows, etc was planned much in advanced based on the time and location of the sun. Many thanks to the wonderful guys at Safilo and of course, my Hugo Boss family for the amazing opportunity. I can’t wait to see the results of the shoot in the next few months!

Balenciaga Cocoon Coat

Published by bryanboy

Bonjour. Greetings from Paris! After enduring in New York what perhaps was the most bitter winter I’ve ever experienced in my life, I’m happy to report that spring definitely arrived early here in Europe. I didn’t even get the chance to wear my fur coats in Milan during Fashion Week!

Anyway, I went to the Balenciaga store on George V to see what’s new and I picked up a few spring essentials. I bought a number of tops, a short-sleeved top with an asymmetrical hem is one of them, and also a few pairs of shorts that should last me all summer. However, this black crepe cocoon coat with four metal bar closures on the front is my favorite item from that afternoon’s shopping exhibition. I love a good coat and cocoon-shaped ones, as pioneered by Cristobal Balenciaga, are so easy to wear.
