All Images /Steve Wood
Who knows what Steve was doing out front at Balmain yesterday (maybe they didn't let him backstage) but he's just sent me through a whole bunch of photos of the guests arriving at the show. I wouldn't usually post this sort of thing but he had a picture of the guy above in the mix so I had to. I first saw him at the Rick Owens show at Paris menswear. He was sitting in front of me wearing a bright yellow Galliano leather jacket with a big banana printed on the back and a snakeskin cowboy hat. Since then I've seen him everywhere. All over Paris (including Le Baron at 4am), at New York Fashion Week and in tons of pictures online. But I only just found out who we is yesterday. His name is James Goldstein and he's a mysterious millionaire from Los Angeles. Nobody quite knows how he made his money, but he's famous for attending every LA Lakers and LA Clippers game played (something like 115 per season) and basically every show of the Fashion Week circuit (men's and women's). He wears leather jeans everyday of the week. What's not to love?
