Designers In The Studio

Philip Crangi of Giles & Brother

Took a brief tour of the Giles & Brother studio where Philip showed me some of his latest jewelry designs. Oddly enough he was wearing a very similar outfit to the one I wore in my last post HERE. Always a style inspiration of mine, it was great to know we were on the same page with our light denim jackets, striped shirts, and stone chinos. More pics from my visit with Giles & Brother to come so stay tuned.



Giles and Brother Spring 2013 Preview

The other day, I was invited to go to the Giles and Brother Spring 2013 preview at Philip Crangi’s studio. Nestled on the fifth floor of a chelsea building, the studio is a mixture of the iconic Giles inspirations such as leathers, rustic pieces, metals, and other hardware.

Philip told the other bloggers and I all about the brand, the new collection and that 2013 is basically Giles’ year.

Philip is a cool, stylish man. He is very knowledgeable about his trade and is really hard working. I am envious of the way he can wear layers of rings and bracelets and make it look so good!

Overall, the new mens spring collection is superb and unlike anything I have seen. Philip makes fishhooks, metal nuts, and safety pins look unbelievably chic.
