Those irrepressible teen socialites Peter Brant II (18) and his brother Harry (15) were given the New York Times Style treatment in an article entitled “The New Princes of the City.” Writer William Van Meter gushes: “[Harry and his brother] are the well-spoken product of cross-pollination of the Übermenschen. Their father, Peter M. Brant, is the industrialist, art collector, polo enthusiast and publisher of Interview. Their mother is the supermodel Stephanie Seymour. Both are wisp thin. Peter’s deadpan, detached demeanor contrasts with Harry’s livelier, impish quality, a witty rejoinder ever ready.” There is much discussion of the boy’s fabulous style. Harry says his has evolved. “I used to only wear overalls, Alaïa T-shirts, and my mom’s Manolo Blahnik loafers,” he said. “That was my uniform.” Now he goes for “a designer armed forces look in a Louis Vuitton military jacket and Saint Laurent combat boots.” The Brant boys have 70,000 followers on Twitter. “Most of my tweets happen between 1 and 5 in the morning,” Harry said. “I’m a night owl, and random thoughts pop into my head. I’ll be watching Mommie Dearest, and I’ll be like, ‘Oh, my God, Joan Crawford is amazing.’” As for their future plans (besides partying), those seem to be up in the air. “‘I’m young and have a lot of time and can sit on that question,’ Harry said, before casting a comical sneer at his older brother. ‘But Peter, you have to hurry. You’re old candy. You’re withering away.’ Ever blasé, Peter tilted his head, looked at him blankly, then turned away, showing off his strong profile.” (via The New York Times)
