I randomly came across this video interview shot last season in Paris, while on a German website (http://twoforfashion.otto.de). I have always enjoyed answering without the preparations, or having heard the questions prior to the rolling of the camera. I get to sit back later when I come across the interviews, and always look to see if it was the heat of the moment, or if I still feel the same way.
P.S. - I’m certainly not one of the 5 who make a living off of street style.
This was my first trip to Japan, and I had the opportunity not only to photograph, but also create videos for GQ Japan. While the collaboration in itself was great, the icing on the cake was that I had the chance to meet and chat with some of the most influential men in Japanese fashion and style. It was a pleasure, a learning experience, and honor.
While the light light tends to shine on the attendees at Pitti Uomo in Florence Italy, one sometimes forgets that Pitti is so much bigger than photos of well dressed chaps. It’s about quality product, excellent craftsmanship and great brands. It’s always a pleasure visiting the good people at ETON. Enjoy.
While many people think Pitti Uomo is solely about great men of style,those in the know understand that style and product are never too far apart. Once again I am happy to share a few more brands from Pitti Uomo that stay on my radar.
Part of the beauty of Pitti (Florence, Italy) is being able to to see first hand the great products coming from both known and unknown brands. Here’s a short clip of 3 Brands that were among 3 of my favorite shot exclusively forGQ Japan.
