WSP x Crowne Plaza by Brandon Bryant

Hey guys hope all is well. Super excited to share some new content from New York Fashion Week (NYFW) that I had the chance to work on. Today’s post is featuring the new collaboration between Timo Weiland and Crowne Plaza on the new wardrobe collection called MOMENTUM for Crowne Plaza’s hotel team members. There has been a new trend (which I am in full favor of by the way) of clothing brands working with large companies to have design led wardrobes for their employee work force.

Many companies like Crowne Plaza have employees who are the first and last impression that the modern business travelers interact with. Which is why the collaboration makes a ton of sense and it also boosts the employee moral to come to work in something they enjoy wearing. Clothes can greatly impact the confidence and work output of an employee, so it is best to cater to new and modern styles while still being professional.

Timo and team had the great pleasure of working closely with the Crowne Plaza and their employees who will be wearing their wardrobe collection everyday. Matter of fact, a few employee’s actually had the chance to walk in the fashion show wearing the collection.

Now let’s talk about the show & clothes! I had the chance to go backstage and witness the upbeat pace of typical NYFW pre-show madness. Timo and team were well prepared and had multiple walk-throughs, makeup checks and quick outfit adjustments. I snagged a few pictures while I was at it! Not to mention, there was an awesome pre-show performance by Ocean Park Standoff

I really enjoyed the simplicity and modern swagger of the men’s and women’s collection. Timo and team stuck to blacks and whites and would layer in greys and plums for subtle touches. Many companies have a one size fit all mentality when it comes to the employee wardrobe, that was not the case in this new collection. Timo and team made sure to make a collection that fit all shapes and sizes. In addition, I enjoyed that both men and women employees have quite few options to choose from. Men can wear a parka, cardigan, sweater, sweater vest and different dress shirts to work. Women can choose from sweaters, blouses, dresses, dress shirts and they have tailored blazers. It’s safe to say that the MOMENTUM collection was a success and you could see the joy on the faces of the employee’s faces backstage in the group picture with Timo and team!

WSP x The Art of Shaving by Brandon Bryant


Happy 2017! Over the past few years men have increasingly paid more attention to personal style and now its time to focus on personal grooming.

I teamed up with the good folks over at The Art of Shaving for the launch of their new fragrance collection. I decided to go with a modern gentleman vibe for this partnership. So I threw on a suit & tie and made sure to play a bit with the colors and patterns to bring out some character.

First, a little history on the brand. The Art of Shaving is a brand with lots of history, 20 years to be exact. As a leading men’s grooming brand they have a mission to help elevate the grooming experience for men from a chore to an enjoyable ritual. The brand initially started from a small shop here in Manhattan and has since grown to a robust collection of over 150 male-focused luxury retail shops across the country.

Now, lets talk about the fragrances. I had the chance to test drive five different scents and the two I enjoyed most were the Oud Suede and Green Lavender. The Oud Suede has a deep wood smell that I believe is good for a night out on the town or dinner with your significant other. The Green Lavender had an herbal tone to it and could be worn both day and night or for work and play.

Blogger Pro Tip: Feel free to blend scents together to get an elevated and unique scent. My suggestion is to blend the Green Lavender with Vetiver Citron. These two scents blend well, the sharp lavender and refreshing orange of the Green Lavender blend well with the smoky vetiver and sweet lemon of the Vetiver Citron.

Well now that you guys have had the chance to visually experience and hear more about the new fragrances be sure to go check them out for yourself (here)

Thank you as always for reading and let me know your thoughts on my outfit today and on the fragrances when you try them out.

Hey guys, hope you’re doing well. Excited to show an awesome partnership I just finished up with GQ and Hugo Boss. It was a cool intimate in-store event with GQ Stylist Brett Fahlgren and NY Giants Running Back Rashad Jennings.

The event had a small Q&A between Brett and Rashad who discussed fashion in sports and also Rashad's humble beginnings on the football field. Rashad had a very heart touching story of how he was able to get his first shot to play in a football game in high school. He was a 4th string running back at the time and his high school team was playing their arch rivals for the last game of the season. As the story goes on we find out that all three other running backs get injured and then the coach had no choice but to put Rashad into the game. His first play ended up being a 30 yard TD run. Before the game was over Rashad went on to score 2 TD's on offense and 2 TD's on defense for a total of 4 TD's. That was the start of his now illustrious football career.

After Q&A the event focused on the new mix and match suit separates Hugo Boss was releasing. If you take a look at a few of the pictures above you can see some of the new collection.

Well that’s all for now, let me know your thoughts. Talk soon!
