The Brant Brothers Bio
Emerging style stars Peter II and Harry Brant have quickly risen in popularity among New York’s elite, the teen socialite brothers have gained an haute couture high society following for simply looking good, and have appeared everywhere from fashion blogs to style sections! Find out more about the new princes of style in their Kidzworld Bio!
Growing up in the lap of luxury, Peter and Harry Brant are the sons of industrialist, art collector and the publisher of Interview magazine Peter M. Brant, and super model Stephanie Seymour – and if fashion party pictures are anything to go by, being photogenetic runs in the family! Peter II, 18, and Harry, 15, live in Greenwich, Connecticut and have grown up surrounded by art, high fashion and elegance. They have five half siblings on their father’s side, but Peter and Harry are the closest in age. People are calling them New York’s high fashion’s answer to celebrity sisters Kendall and Kylie, although unlike most teenagers the boys are most well known for being well-spoken, well read far beyond their years and can discuss anything from 18th century furniture to modern art easily!
Elder brother Peter is known for his dry, deadpan sense of humor while Harry is said to be more playful and witty. Their father says he has no idea why people are abuzz about his sons, but with 70 000 Twitter followers they must be doing something people like! Harry confessed that he’s a nightowl and often composes his tweets between 1 and 5 am in the morning and they often attend runway shows with their model mother and started out by sneaking onto guest lists!
“We always went out in threes, me and him and a girlfriend to adult parties. But I was still with a bunch of kids when I went. A lot of times we weren’t invited, but we snuck in or found a way onto the guest list. We just started doing it more often, and Harry would go out with me. The people I hang out with at parties I have known since I was growing up. It’s like hanging out with your uncle or aunt at a party,” said Peter.
The brothers regularly appear on fashion blogs like The Cut and Refinery29, and were recently profiled in the Style section of the New York Times, making the jump from online celebrities to being published party goers. Despite gaining fame on the style circuit, the boys are focused on school and are never out past curfew.
“We’ve given them reasonable freedom,” said their dad, Mr. Brant, “and expect them to get to school on time. We expect them to be good human beings and to care about other things besides clothes.”
The Brant brothers may have made the leap from couture darlings into real celebrity, but they say there’s no chance of a reality show anytime soon, it’s just not their “style.” Peter just finished high school and is majoring in Art History at Hunter with an eye to eventually becoming involved in the luxury goods industry while Harry is interning in the advertising department of Interview magazine for the summer.
The question remains, will these beautiful brothers remain the “it” boys of the fashion world? Only time will tell!
