Kobe Bryant took a break from Lakers training camp to attend the opening of Philippe Los Angeles last night. Was it due to his love for contemporary Chinese food, which flowed generously out of the Melrose Avenue kitchen? No, Kobe was celebrating his appearance on the cover of L’Uomo Vogue magazine, and his new watch collaboration, the Black Mambo, by Nubeo.
We’ll give you a further report on the new Philippe Chow restaurant after we have dinner there next week. And, as for Kobe, we think his taste in jewelry is more along the lines of another NBA championship ring!
