A new dimension of fashion appreciation.
I believe it was back in 2005 that Scott Schuman began The Sartorialist, and to follow, would be an entire new world of discovery and street style appreciation. Described in minutes on this documentary above, Scott takes us through bits of his daily life, his view on photography and defining his purpose for The Satorialist. Some believe that fashion is a reflection of who one is as a person—their tastes and sensibilities, their style and how they outwardly introduce themselves to the world. And so, I believe it is safe to say that Scott has not only created quite a following of fashion and style lovers, but also an honest account of some of the fashion and style of our time. From fine to grunge, and rugged included, true to form, and entirely captured spur of the moment. There is nothing overly staged or pretentious about his photos, so the saying explains.
Perhaps Scott is the master of a new movement, for I do not believe street style is merely a trend to come and go. In fact, often I find myself going back to some of his earliest work for inspiration, whether it be fashion-forward style, classic style or neither for that matter; one can find plentiful inspiration throughout different touch points of world and most importantly, with uniqueness of style... for his choices of photography are of interesting people, not solely fashion's elite. Now that is truly inspiring.
+ also, some news about Vogue Paris... who the new editor in chief is to be!
