Simplicity

Published by bryanboy

Before the Marc Jacobs show last night, I went to Francisco Costa’s collection at the Calvin Klein show in the afternoon. I thought I’d go for simplicity so I wore this pistachio-coloured cashmere sweater from Uniqlo and a pair of shorts with a Prince of Wales check pattern. My silver half-moon bag and shoes are from Martin Margiela fall/winter 2011. American Elle’s Joe Zee (who, btw, had his show, ‘All on the Line’, renewed for a second season) took delight with my bag. It matched his outfit, too.

All Over Times Square

Many years back, a publication back home asked me in an interview what I wanted for Christmas. I remember saying it in jest that I wanted a billboard along EDSA, a main transport thoroughfare in Manila. That didn’t happen of course. And why should it happen? I’m not a local starlet peddling skin whitening products. Haha! I kid, I kid you. Anyway, fast forward a few years later, I have my jolly self plastered all over Times Square on a billboard. Right in the middle of Manhattan. Pure insanity, no? Yay Diet Coke!

It made me think — I wonder how fashion models feel whenever they see images of themselves on ad campaigns plastered in huge billboards around the world…
