The month of the features





Wow, what a nice surprise when I got back from Paris and found out two more magazines had featured me in their pages! This has definitely been the month of the press, with five different international magazines printing my name, I thought it totally deserved a special post!




Vanidad: Gala Gonzalez talks about her wardrobe



The GQ (UK) suplement talks about the best street styles



XLSEMANAL: Talks about Central Saint Martins and interviews one of its students, me

Vogue (Korea): talks about my blog and style

TUSH does a little review on Prince Pelayo
Picture by Ben Lamberty



Pelayo Diaz Zapico is the real prince of London. The 23-year old is the official muse for UK-Fashionista, his blog katelovesme.net has generated in the last two years over a million views and made him from local hero to cewebrity. His crown is his hair, he wears it upwards, same with his head – Prince Pelayo is a piece of fashion, he is interweaved in it, he lives it. The Central St. Martin’s student already sells his creations like the hand-pinned cross-T in boutiques in Paris. His own Style is a mix of James Deans rough coolness added with Marc Jacobs' kilt-look, heavy Doc Martens and a biker frindge leather jacket. Or in his own words. „ LA Kid meets 50ies pimp.“ People wear Pelayos creations from Soho to the East End, because Pelayo embodies all facettes of an It-Boy, he is not just one of them, he impersonates them all. You will find his name on every guestlist, street style photographers like „Facehunter“ or „The Startorialist“ Scott Schumann have Pelayo constantly on their radar. 10 Magazine named him as one of the 10 most influential bloggers, he was male-pinup in Electric Youth Mag and Nylon Guys showed the big style of the small Pelayo in Xtra Large. With the age of 23 the talented Mr. Zapico is fixed in the business. What is there left to come? "Watch out for me, I have a plan"

It was so much fun! Thanks so much Tush Team!



And big, big, big thank you to Vogue, XLsemanal, GQ, Vanidad, Tush and all the magazines that have been featuring me (or even naming me) lately, it's great to get a bit of recognition and it all helps to keep it going on!

Prince Pelayo

Cuánto narcisismo por aquí, ¿no?
Vale que seas "famosín" (por decirlo de alguna manera), y que los fashionistas te vean "cool" por ir con una faldita y un collar siendo un tio (que para gustos colores, ¡ojo!).
Pero llegar al extremo de dedicarte un post a tí mismo ¡encima alagándote!, esto ya me supera.
Dios.
¿Ya has creado tu propia religión adorandote a tí mismo, Príncipe?

Ale, suerte en tu "mundo de yupi", amigo.

Cristina said...

Cómo les come la envidia...jajaja

Ya les gustaría a ellos ser la inspiración que tú eres para mucha gente.

“Sólo “the fashion blogger” porque ni sangre azul tiene para ser “príncipe”, cómo lo presentan. La moda, algo tan artístico no puede ser algo tan ambiguo. Demuestra, que no es icono, sino moda, en general, porque no marca una tendencia, las sigue todas en general y las combina muy bien, pero no tiene un estilo definido, pasa de un estilo a otro. Fue de moderno, heavy , emo, clásico galés, con sus faldas escocesas, que por otra parte son muy favorecedoras y así unos cuantos más. Y lo próximo, qué será? Nos sorprenderá?. Es un esnob, no marca tendencias, las sigue, fashion blogger poco más, igual como lo que pretenda ser será brillante, pero vistiéndose no ha marcado ninguna tendencia.
Y el blog está de moda, pero no es de moda.
La moda es importante y del mediocre, nadie se acuerda. Porque las modas pasan.

Felicidades por ser como eres y por la ternura que tienes, seguro que llegarás donde quieras. bonito blog, un saludo”.

Jojojojo, sí seguro que sí, estás en todasssssssss las listas de invitados del mundo entero y Sartorialist tiene un prince-radar en el culo solo para ver si apareces por su lado y scarate siempre que puede, no te fastidia; te sacó una vez y porque te plantarías delante suyo con todo el morro (muy bien hecho por tu parte, por otro lado). No creo que ni sepa quién eres chaval.

GJ said...

I live in Seoul Korea, Holla! i'll make sure to check out on your story on Vogue Korea.

Wow..Pelayo...
How does it really feel and how often do you realize all these is really happening REALLY. being recognized all over the internet, be a boy wonder of WW fashion junkies is all super fabulous and all BUT being able to get actual spreads on international magazines is just whole another story.

ENVY you MUCH.

(*Keep on coming with them recent BLUE obsession! so lovong the western denim tucked into a white socks coordination. anyone coulda thought of that and YET no one had pull that off. that was just BANANAS.)

snoblak said...

Congratulations. I adore that photo in Tush with you carrying the chihuahua. It's very much like Terry Richardson. You are an inspiration and don't worry about any negative vibes from haters. :-)

By the way please vote for me at United Colors of Benetton! 1 day left!

Otro de tus no-admiradores said...

Es cosa mia o es que cada vez tienes más enemigos?
Jajajajjajajajajajja qué raro, no?
Pelayo el "humilde", el chico que tiene los pies en la tierra y que para NAAAAAAAAAADA se cree superior a los demás!?!?!
Que raro que raro...
Seguiré investigando porqué eres "TAN QUERIDO" :)!!!

Enhorabuena, solía criticarte porque escribes bastante mal siendo francos y parece que andas justito de cultura general. Pero mira, en el mundo en el que te mueves, parece que triunfas así que enhorabuena de verdad, más allá de que crea que al teatro que rodea la moda hoy día no se le puede llamar arte si gente tan poco leída llega arriba tan rápido, pero bueno sea lo que sea aquello en lo que estás metido está claro que estás triunfando, asñi que ánimo y enhorabuena, a mi no m egusta pero eso no quiere decir que sea malo. Todos los que se avalanzan a criticarte por este actualización parecen destilar envidia y frustración por cada poro. Ánimo.

Davidikus said...

Congratulations on the press exposure. You wear the kilt very well too! I have always wanted to wear some sort of skirt for men...

maria said...

bueno, después de media hora más de lectura ya me he puesto al corriente de quien eres. El blog es impresionante, menudo curro. Mola que seas español y te codees con la cream de la cream en tema de moda.Retiro lo digo, no es cuestión de suerte, sino de supongo mucho curro y mucha paciencia, a la vez que una gran pasión por lo que haces. Enorabuena¡¡¡

Bigio said...

You look great with the Chanel jacket! Amazing pictures! :D

suffer the pain of discipline said...

Joder Pelayo, puede que sea narcisismo, puede ser que seas un egolatra... Bueno, quizás no, pero admito que tienes actitud y me agrada la forma en que vistes, es mas, me agrada mucho ese tupe y el kilt, y aunque cada uno tiene que ser diferente y vestir como mejor uno exprese como es uno mismo... Me tomare la molestia de copiar la idea del usar kilt, siempre quise hacerlo, asi que lo pillare :))) te deseo lo mejor, Dylan

Fundas para iPad said...

I like very much the style of this blog! I haven't seen much men wearing the clothes you show here but i would like!!
