I’m very excited to finally share to you the new BOSS eyewear campaign featuring myself, my best friend Rumi Neely and Mariano di Vaio. I certainly had a blast at the shoot! Thank you for the wonderful opportunity!
My main man, Marc Jacobs, has been killing it (and mind you, killing my finances) lately. His spring summer 2015 collection is all about the idea of a uniform.
This isn’t your typical gun-totting, standard supply from the army general store. In true Marc Jacobs fashion, the pockets are huge, the buttons are big AND extremely shiny. The fabrics are of the highest quality; thick, heavy and rich, rich, rich!
It might be a little extreme (and very military) to wear a total runway look like I did, but if you take some of the pieces on its own, whether it’s a shirt, jacket or trouser, you know you’ll be wearing them for a long, very long, time.
Wanna know what I need to serve as an exclamation mark to this lewk? The olive green ostrich leather bag Marc named after me. Such a shame that bag is in the Philippines at the moment. I’ll make it my priority to get it the next time I go back to visit family.

I’m not gonna lie… spring is my second least favorite season. I don’t understand why most people in the northern hemisphere are obsessed (not as hot as summer, not as cold as winter). Between you and me, spring is the trickiest and most misleading. It’s the shadiest time of the year! It’s basically autumn with sunshine and the trees and the flowers are blooming instead of, well, “fall-ing” (is that a verb?). Hah!
Spring is beautiful alright, I have to give it to the powers that be. I love all the blossoms around me — I know they’re NOT gonna last very long but man oh man, spring in New York City is bitter cold this year. I don’t know how I managed to wear short shorts but y’all know me… if there’s sunshine and a car, I’ll do anything as long as I see fit.
I’ll forever associate Stuart Vevers’ spring summer 2015 Coach collection with his massive, faux shearling and faux fur pastel furs. His pastel green coat situaton kept me warm in February. However, it was only until now, believe it or not, that I (thanks to one of my instagram followers), I found out that he collaborated with California-based artist Gary Baseman on his collection. I LOVE the creepy-yet-absolutely-playful creatures Gary made for Stuart.

One of the shows I thoroughly enjoyed during New York fashion week this past February was Prabal Gurung. Click HERE to watch the show. I thought it was his strongest collection to date. After the show, I dragged my NYFW partner-in-crime, my friend Tina Craig to go backstage to greet Prabal. I told him I love his knitwear.
As soon as I came back to New York after the European shows, I went to Prabal’s office to re-see the collection. I had the chance to play with most of the clothes! I tried many of the coats and the sweaters — his knits are to die for! I placed a personal order for some of the fall/winter pieces and I can’t wait for them to be delivered in a few months time before they hit the stores! For now, this cool asymmetrical sleeveless knit piece that I got a couple of weeks ago from his spring/summer 2015 collection will last me for the next, hopefully warmer, months to come.
