The AVENUEinsider’s favorite fashion blogging boy BryanBoy is in India and gave us the 411 on his exotic adventures. Of course we flipped for his India-appropriate outfit (a hat and bracelets he bought in Marrakesh this May, sunglasses from Miu Miu, a green beaded necklace he scored from a market in New Delhi, a floral shirt from H&M, belt from Hermes, psychedelic print trousers from a market in Jaipur and sandals from Marc by Marc Jacobs.)


“I’m currently in India for a three-week vacation. Even though I travel a lot for events or projects, it’s been quite awhile since I last had a personal holiday. It’s ridiculous being in four continents in a single week; it’s crucial that I detach from it “all” and take time for myself. I flew straight to New Delhi after the Milan menswear collections, skipping Paris menswear and couture. I’m doing a tour of Agra, Jaipur and New Delhi.

I’ve always wanted to go to India. I’ve seen many, many images over the years but only through magazines or TV. I’m tired of going to the same usual spots so I asked myself, why not go to India now? I’m glad I did. I’m a big fan of going somewhere extremely different to what I’m accustomed to. I love being an observer, taking everything in. India is a tremendously colourful place rich with history, traditions and exoticism. It’s magical! There’s so many things to see and do here.

I bought quite a bit of accessories, mostly bracelets and necklaces from different market stalls. Also snapped up various types of fabric. I can’t wait to take them to a tailor back home. I went to a tailor here in New Delhi and asked them to make me some garments but the results were so-so, especially when it came to suiting. They made a beautiful tweed coat for me though and I can’t wait to wear it this fall.”
