BRYAN BOY TAKES TOKYO TOWN

東京コレクションシーズンに日本に訪れてたブライアン・ボーイ(Bryan Boy)を改めてここで紹介。
ブライアンは、フィリピン出身のファッション・ブロガーでコレクションはもちろん、自身のことをオープンに記事として書き込み、時には読者を笑わせてくれる。彼を好む一人として、マーク・ジェイコブス(Marc Jacobs)が1枚の紙に ” I Love Bryanboy” と自ら記入しメッセージを送っている(下記写真)。

ブライアンがどんな人物かわかってきたかな?

TOKYO DANDY TEAM は、ありがたいことにそんな彼をスタイリングすることになり、3月27日(金)に撮影を行った。撮影場所は原宿で、14時にラフォーレ原宿裏で待ち合わせをし軽く打ち合わせを済ませ撮影スタート。ヘア担当はSHIMA原宿店でディレクターを勤める奈良裕也。天気も良く順調に撮影が進み、予定よりも1時間早く終了したので竹下通りにあるFaline Tokyoに顔を出し、マリさんことBABY Maryに会いにいった。

ブライアンは、ファリーンを後にコンデナストの事務所に向かった。同時進行でMTVの取材もあり、”ブライアン一日密着取材”てきなかたちで撮影が進んでいたのだ。きっと、ブライアインはその日とての疲れただろう。
THANK YOU SO MUCH BRYAN !!

そんなブライアンは、ファッションデザイナー、ライター、ブロガーたちのインスピレーションの源泉でもあるのだ。もちろん、TOKYO DANDYのインスピレーションの源泉でもある。

Known globally for his witty and honest take on the fashion industry through his website bryanboy.com, internet phenomenon Bryan was in Tokyo for fashion week at the end of March. Tokyo Dandy caught up with Bryan in Harajuku to take a few shots wearing some of the seasons best cuts from the high-end selection at Aoyama store Addition Adelaide.

Bryan’s blog had been a fashion insiders favorite for some time before the attention of designer Marc Jacobs brought it to even greater prominence. Noting Bryan’s ‘passion for fashion’, the American designer famously named an ostrich bag from his 2008 collection the ‘BB bag’ in Bryan’s honor.

Blogging from his computer at home in the Philippines and through nothing short of hard work and a love for all things fashion, BB has achieved amazing success – in turn becoming an inspiration for fashion designers, writers and bloggers alike. Bryan is changing the rules for fashion journalism, putting bloggers in the front rows at international collections (he finally met Marc Jacobs at the New York A/W collection this year.)

In Tokyo for just a week, we did well to fit in time with Bryan between interviews and meetings he had with many of the cities fashion press. For the shoot Shima creative director Yuya Nara took care of the hair whilst the MTV cameras that were following Bryan for the day recorded the action. After we wrapped up we headed down to Faline to say hello to Baby Mary before Bryan was heading off to the Conde Nast offices.

Bryan was a breath of fresh air for Tokyo Fashion Week and many here, including us, look forward to the next time he’s in the city. Until then we’ll be checking bryanboy.com.
