Today, the road to becoming a fashion designer is very different to what it once was. There are now several roads, and one can be an actor, singer, fashion student, or a world famous blogger. Bryan Boy (Bryan Grey Yambao) one of the most famous fashion bloggers of today, has taken that naturally expected next step from blogger to designer. His collaboration with Adrienne Landau of warm and cozy, yet hip and stylish hats, scarves, and other items, was shown in the Mondrian Soho’s Penthouse with beautiful background views of New York City and snowcapped buildings.
I had a brief chance to chat with both Bryan Boy and Adrienne, who are both incredibly charming. Their teaming up on this luxury fur collection, has resulted in a new color palette and silhouettes. She mentioned that although most people tend to buy the safe browns and blacks, everyone was very excited by the wonderful colors of Bright Yellow, Green, Magenta, Classic Neutrals, and all shades of Blue. Even the quirky new products ie: fur bow ties, fur camera straps and collars, were receiving positive reactions.
I can’t deny that I was excited to see all those great colors and items too. It was like being a kid in a candy shop, where instead of bon-bons and sweets, it was fun fur accessories in rabbit, fox, and mink for adults!
