Bryan Goh, fashion stylist, wears T-shirt by Alexander Wang, skinny jeans by Uniqlo, wedges by Rick Owens, bag by Proenza Schouler and snapback by Kvlture.
Bryan Goh is an aspiring stylist who only wears black. For him, it’s the most flattering colour, and it’s easy for him to make black outfits look either edgy, laid back or casual. He’s obsessed with draped clothes and leather, and most of the time he’s seen wearing one or the other with his favourite black tee.
He’s inspired by French “Vogue”; he loves the magazine’s aesthetic. It boasts a rock and roll appeal which he loves, and the editorial team is so chic it hurts him. His favorite local designers include Sifr for great menswear basics, The Cult of Nine for grunge pieces like great t-shirts and The Scarlet Room for affordable and seasonal accessories.
