Fashionista in the making: Peter Brant Jr may be just 18, but his style is already well-evolved

It seems the world is his oyster though.
Mr Brant Jr has also done some acting and modelling, and has also
expressed an interest in a career in the art world.

The art history major told 'I always want to collect art. I mean, art is a big part of my family, it’s a big part of me growing up, and I always want to have a collection, I always want to contribute to the arts and patronize the arts, and it’s something that’s very important to me.'

Mr Brant Jr and his mother made headlines after pictures were
published of the two canoodling, in what some considered an
