We sat down with Adrian Martin, the Creative Director of Men’s Fashion Post Journal during his recent stay at San Francisco Proper and asked him 8 questions on what it’s like to be to an influencer in this day and age. These are #ProperStories.
I’m a creative Director of Men’s Fashion Post Journal and a freelance photographer and stylist.
My normal day without shoots is just basically editing and planning future shoots in a cute coffee shop.
It’s actually the future and it will always be evolving. Right now – some brands are leaning towards quality than quantity where they work with micro-influencers with great content than working with influencers with big followers.
I think my favorite would be the Le Labo Santal 33 perfume.
I’m currently listening to my Top 2017 songs on Spotify.
My favorite thing to do is to play music while browsing my Instagram.
Don’t forget to check out his latest blog post, “A Day in San Francisco”, where he highlights his favorite places to stay & visit while in this fine city we call home.
Proper began as a feeling, not as an idea. The feeling was something akin to empathy; an acute awareness that despite the current proliferation of “boutique” and “lifestyle” hotels and residences, there were precious few properties designed for and around today’s global creative nomad. Many in our milieu share the same daunting challenge: staying fresh and focused,
energized and inspired—all whilst bouncing between London and Hollywood and Austin and San Francisco and Portland and back again. For them, intuitive service is a given. Mere table stakes. What they need and seek beyond accommodation, even at its most luxurious, is inspiration. From the elevated and often surprising interiors imagined by Kelly Wearstler. From the sense of immersion in, and connection to, the vibrancy of the local culture. From the highly curated amenities. From the inspired collaborations with the city’s best and most innovative chefs and mixologists. From the music and the art. From every detail, every interaction, every moment. This is only Proper. And no one else.
