The Fall Guys by Edwin Cabrera

Hola! I just got back from Spain yesterday. I love it. The city of Barcelona and Madrid are so beautiful. People are so nice, friendly and hot. I will post about my trip later on once I have gotten the chance to see all the photos I took.

Well before I left Toronto, I did an editorial photo shoot with models; Steven Black, and the 2 models I have worked before and always enjoyed working with, Joel Vautour and Rama Luksiarto. Here is the story, I hope you enjoy it.


No spring nor summer beauty hath such grace
As I have seen in one autumnal face.
~John Donne

"The falling leaves drift by the window. The autumn leaves of red and gold....I see your lips, the summer kisses. The sunburned hands, I used to hold. Since you went away, the days grow long. And soon I'll hear ol' winter's song. But I miss you most of all my darling,When autumn leaves start to fall."- Johnny Mercer, lyrics, Autumn Leaves

In Barcelona and Madrid

Hi Sorry I will not be able to post for 2 weeks. I´m currently in Barcelona and will be in Madrid for next week. I was planning to post the photo shoot I did before I left Toronto, but I didn´t had the chance. I don´t have an access to a laptop except for my blackberry. So you guys can still e-mail me and I can reply back. So if there´s any hot Spanish readers drop me line. I would love to have drinks with you guys.

Barcelona is so beautiful by the way. I love it here. The Catalans are very friendly and sexy. I love my apartment too.

Ok see you guys in 2 weeks.

New York Fashion Week Men's Spring/Summer 2009

I finally had the chance to look at New York Spring/Summer 2009 shows that was held on Sep. 05 to 12. I think NY offered a variety of choices for men Spring/Summer 2009. As a city known for its diversity it seems that NY designers’ were influenced by variant male icons-70’s TV guys from Band of Outsiders, David Bowie during the David Bowie Live era for Philip Lim, NY artists like Jackson Pollock & Edward Hooper for Gilded Age, male athletes for Duckie Brown, Sam Elliott and Parker Stevenson from a 1976 movie “The Lifeguard” for Michael Bastian, Ian Curtis of Joy Division for Rag & Bone and the brat packs from the movie “The Outsiders” for Richard Chai.

Designer Richard Chai’s mens’ spring/summer 2009 is my top favourite. I love the perfect melding of punk and preppy. There’s a distress look on the clothes but still look very clean and elegant. The cut looks so comfortable. Every piece is so adorable.

I don’t know what happened to Thom Browne, for the guy who introduced the whole male population into a new way of wearing a suit his collection seems off.
