The Sartorialist


I love street-style blogs and the cream of the crop in this genre is The Sartorialist. Photographer and blogger Scott Schuman formerly worked in sales and marketing for high end fashion houses so he definitely has fashion pedigree & an eye for a look. In 2005 he began photographing stylish people on the streets of New York, and since then Scott has posted hundreds of inspiring images from all over the world, picking up assignments from the likes of GQ and Style.com along the way. His subjects range from French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld, to a group of school girls on a school tour to Paris (very stylish school girls!), to two Milanese barbers (one of my favourite photos), all framed by a street backdrop.

A selection of images from The Sartorialist blog have just been published in a book of the same name and I love it - there are 500+ pages of photos curated by the author. Some have commentary from Scott, relating stories or anecdotes about the subject of a photo, why he chose to photograph them, or how he got a particular shot.

If you haven't already, check out The Sartorialist.

My favourite category on the site is 'Bicycles' - people looking impossibly chic while riding their bikes. Not a trouser-leg-tucked-into-sock or a high vis jacket in sight!
