One of the original influencers, Bryanboy, also known as Bryan Yambao, entered the fashion world from his parents’ house in Manila in the Philippines, with his eponymous blog back in the late aughts. That got the attention of Marc Jacobs, who named a bag after him. From a pioneering fashion blogger to a Gen-Z influencer, Bryanboy recently reinvented himself as a bonafide TikTok star with 1.3 million fans and counting.
While curating our collective of fashion experts, the Style Assembly, Summer Albarcha came to mind as an obvious choice. The modest style expert and social entrepreneur has been an inspiration to over half-a-million followers who look to her for perfectly crafted outfits and eye-catching accessories. To be so expertly adept in dressing is no easy feat, so we chatted with Summer and the person who informed her love of fashion, her mother, Maysa. In honor of Mother’s Day, the duo answered some of our questions and curated a dazzling collection of must-have Rebag pieces.
