(NEW YORK) We're keeping ongoing tabs on where our favorite chicsters are spending their summer days, and today, The Daily brings you the holiday plans of Brian Reyes and Carlos Souza--though now that he's recently reunited with Valentino, we expect he's working longer hours...

So, Brian…
Vacation destination?
Fourth of July in Montana on the Flathead Valley. It’s now tradition!
Weekend routine?
I travel so much for work, so I keep my weekends for exploring the city. Last weekend was the New York Botanical Gardens.
Ideal travel companions?
Anyone who doesn't complain.
Pennysaving technique?
True vacations are so few and far between that it’s my one opportunity to splurge!
What you’re buying?
I rarely shop.
What you’re not?
Taxis: we're trying!
Bare necessities?
I’m a guy--we keep it pretty simple.
Guilty pleasure?
My favorite indulgence is jazz and champagne at the Carlyle.
Summer uniform?
Summer jeans, a standard polo, glasses, and boat shoes.
Style essentials?
Great face wash, hydrating spray, seltzer, sunglasses.
Seasonal eats?
Watermelon and cilantro.
Summer icon?
My feline--it’s summer year-round for her.
Swimsuit prep plan?
More walking.

Et vous, Carlos?
Vacation plans?
For sure, lots of it! Spring break was working on Valentino: The Last Emperor documentary tour of the U.S., so I have to catch up. Summer will be Europe, cruising the Mediterranean until August and also planning a trip to Bali to visit friends.
Weekend routine?
Long Island for sure, but now on my way to Rio for 3 weeks to plan Rio Summer 2009 edition. Will have weekends in Ipanema and my farm inland (a 2-hour drive through forests and mountains).
Ideal travel companions?
My close family for sure—relaxing and effortless.
What you’re buying?
I am set for summer, since I am stocked with great sarongs and Havaianas flip flops. I am buying only sunscreen (Ocean Potion 50 sunblock) and books to read.
What you’re not?
Sorry to say, but fashion for the season! But I am investing big in classics by J.Crew (always been a fan, way before Michelle) that are quite fabulous.
Bare necessities?
Lots of healthy food in all travels, books, good music in my iPod.
Guilty pleasure?
Dagoba organic dark chocolate (blueberries and lavender).
Summer uniform?
Lots of linen shirts and cotton shirts by J.Crew, sarongs from Bali, flip flops and Clarks on my feet. Also, Bermuda pants in town and some Ralph Lauren cool pants assembled with Stubbs & Wootton moccasins.
Style essentials?
I always indulge in colorful blue hues and LOADS of white and cool shades. And my Wayfarers Raybans (in white and military green).
Seasonal eats?
Salads and juices. Skip the pasta for a better shape at the beach!
Summer icon?
I love Elle Macpherson in Ibiza--totally hippie chic with lots of my jewelry for Most Wanted Design around the neck .
Swimsuit prep plan?
Always yoga, less carbohydrates, juices waking up--the light juice composed of dark green leaf, ginger, apple carrot, celery, cucumber. Fruits until lunch (salads and lean meat) and caipirinhas only after 7 p.m. (lots of it, combined with lots of dancing!).
