The nine lives of Baron Geisler
I knew I had to do it. When I received a text message from Jeck Yap, the head counselor of the rehabilitation center where Baron Geisler is at, I only had less than 24 hours to gather my team before the appointment.
The new segment “Trending” debuts today, a rip off of “Style of the Month” that has been appearing every first Wednesday of the month for an in-depth fashion news coverage since February 2018.
But unlike our monthly special, this answers the immediacy of pop culture that I would merge with local fashion.
And to go with the times, “Trending” has no specific publication schedule—because it is a servant of the breaking news in our field of watch.
I already had the concept of this segment, but I was waiting for the right coverage to launch it.
I mentally reserved Yvonne Quisumbing’s menswear collection for a feature of someone who is proportioned to her ethos after she launched it in Manila.
As her customer since 2013, I knew how my friend accepted the truce for highly tailored pieces.
The rants, on the other hand, were decoded and left on our coffee table several afternoons at the mall, sharing only one piece of croissant.
It’s a tie for Yvonne and Baron—although much had been said about Baron in show business.
But here, we raise the curtain for the truest of the many lives he has ever had.
One of them, too, is being the Heath Ledger of my life.
