The DAILY Mantra

"Imagination is like a lofty building reared to meet the sky - fancy is a balloon that soars at the wind's will."

Read the B.E.C. interview with Sir von Matterhorn.


Lorenzo von Matterhorn,
born somewhere in Switzerland in the spring of 1974. The exact date and circumstances of his birth are unknown since he was immediately placed in a basket and tossed in a river. Young Lorenzo rode the pristine Alpine glacial melt waters for hundreds of miles before a young Milanese woman discovered the basket along the banks of the river Po. Some say it was this first early journey to Milan that fueled his love for both exploration and fashion.

The woman would raise Lorenzo as her own, naming him Lorenzo after her father and giving him the surname Von Matterhorn to reflect his Swiss heritage as well as his uncommonly large penis.
