PHILIP CRANGI




My fascination with NY jewelry designer Philip Crangi started when I first saw this photo somewhere a couple of years ago. Was it from a GQ or Details editorial feature? Anyway, I just found out that the ruggedly handsome Crangi is a compulsive collector of various things. His obsession started with books. And now his collection includes old maps, men's hardstone rings, old black & white athlete and soldier photographs and even taxidermy. He's also into guttersnipe dumpster diving. So I guess if ever I'm in NYC I should totally check out your next door neighbor's dumpster. Who knows I might run into Philip there, right? I don't know but lately I have this thing for guys with full beards.



Check out the video below where he tells you about his crazy obsession.
