During my trip to Los Angeles I stopped by the James Goldstein residence in Berverly Hills. Jim is a good friend of mine who I have met in London 3 years ago during the fashion week. He is the biggest NBA basketball fan in the world, attending every single game front row. I highly recommend to you to read his last interview with the american GQ, where he talks also about me (I’m the italian photographer who put him in contact with Sarah of Colette to sell his t-shirts in the parisian store). He also printed a photo I took of him and Kanye West in Paris during Fashion Week and frame it in his mansion. He built his house almost 50 years ago, designed by John Lautner, a student/disciple of Frank Lloyd Wright, in 1963. Recently he has built a tennis court and just the court on the floor below he is building a private club. In his house many movies were shot together with many fashion editorials of the best fashion magazines in the world. Me and Jim share the same passion for both fashion and basketball. He also brought me to a Lakers game last saturday against the Oklahoma City Thunders of the NBA Playoffs 2012. Jim is da man!
