You’re not a rock star if you don’t know how to arrive in style.
Kean Cipriano graced a red-carpet movie premiere with his open umbrella as accessory.
On usual days, he’d wear a Fedora and a pair of shades.
The vocalist of Callalily told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) in an interview during the Get Loud event of Converse last October 1, “I just love wearing sunglasses. I just love wearing Ray Bans.”
Another footwear staple: Chuck Taylors!
“I have a lot!” he said when asked how many pairs he has.
He related how he and his band mates became close to the sneakers brand.
“Ano ‘yan, e, naaalala ko ha nung mga year 2006, first-ever music video namin, yung single namin na ‘Stars’ ‘tapos, biglang pagdating namin ng shoot, para kaming mga batang binigyan ng laruan na meron kaming mga Converse na sapatos.”
That meant a lot to the musician-actor.
“Naniwala sila, e. Ever since tumutugtog kami, we became, you know, so attached to the sneakers that we use, kaya lifestyle na siya sa amin, e, kaya gano’n.
“Kaya thank you sa Converse kasi since day one [andiyan sila].
“Parang binibigyan nila kami ng shoes na supposedly, bibilhin namin. Lifestyle na siya sa ‘min, naka-attach na sa ‘min yung Converse.”
His fashion sense hinges on personal taste and comfort rather than accepted style.
Kean stated, “Wala namang requirement sa japorms ng tao, di ba?
“I wouldn’t wear something that would piss me off kaya yung mga sinusuot kong nakikita niyo sa ‘kin, ano lang ako, ibig sabihin, kumportable ako.”
MARKING HIS LIFE. Maridol Bismark of Yahoo Philippines asked about his tattoos.
“I have a lot,” Kean said, noting that each tattoo has significance in his life.
Kean resumed, “To cut the story shorter, these are stories of my life. I hope I’d be getting my whole body covered.”
We told him, the more you have, the richer your life is.
He nodded, “Well, we can say it’s decoration but for me, it’s fulfillment because I got hurt…”
Next, we mentioned his “colorful” lovelife.
The 26-year-old singer cut in, “How did you know?”
We couldn’t tell if that was a sassy retort, his eyes being hidden behind sunglasses.
Kean is one of today's top rock stars who often made showbiz headlines linking him to showbiz actresses.
This time though, he is being linked to a non-showbiz girl.
He resumed, “You know, you really don’t wanna get into that. Pero, ano lang naman ako, e, ah... I am a loving person, and I love to be loved.”
PEP asked: “But you’re taken?”
He smiled teasingly, “I am well taken cared of.”
