BJ Pascual

BJ Pascual was my first fashion friend.  We would turn up at Philippine Fashion Week in high, high hair and outfits freshly cut-up and DIYed in the car, and collaborate on experimental photoshoots, the outcomes of which shall never be released.  He is now the Philippines’ top photographer, having shot every cover and billboard and every major campaign in the country.  BJ’s style has mellowed through the years, now favoring well-worn comfort and muddy hues and subtle luxury over tight, ferocious theatrics—a mood akin to what I feel about men’s style today.  I paid a visit to his photo studio in Manila, and took some portraits of this young photographer I so respect and admire.

I find this worn floral shirt (by French men’s high-street brand Celio) to be reminiscent of Comme des Garcons Fall 2012. Levi’s pants and Alexander McQueen shoes

    Why no accessories credits? There’s an interesting looking bracelet there…

    I’m really loving the floral shirt, I keep seeing ones I like right now. If I see one I like I’m going to take it as a sign.

    P.S. Why do Filipinos never seem to age?? Amazing genetics.

    Ahhhh I thought it might be, I have the matching ring. There’s a floral t-shirt by Supreme (I know, but it’s nice) and I’ve seen some old Comme ones. I need to find the perfect one though… ALL the Filipino people I know my age-ish still get asked for ID whenever we try to buy alcohol. It’s ridiculous. Nobody ever asks me for ID :(
