I have a little confession to make... I've been inspired by Scott's images for at least a decade now. My home page on my internet browser is set to his world renowned blog 'The Sartorialist'. Scott has become quite prominent in the International world of Fashion both on the street as well as in the industry. In 2005 he left his job in the fashion industry to care for his daughter and began capturing images of real people on the street with his digital camera. He successfully demonstrates the connection between the world of fashion with real life people. It goes without saying his subjects have something cool and striking about them, sometimes even quirky.
Scott is now a regular at the major fashion shows, and his work has been featured in many high profile magazines such as GQ and Vogue. The likes of Burberry, DKNY Jeans, Nespresso and many more, have commissioned him to work on noteworthy Ad campaigns for them.
Scott has a real aptness for capturing the details that are noteworthy of sharing with his audience. His images are real and don't come across as contrived. What is so appealing about his work is that you could be living in the most remote area on the other side of the world and you are able to see what is going on in the streets of New York, Milan, Paris...via a click on your browser.
A lot of people aren't brave to mix layers, colours texture etc. Scott's images open up the world to possibilities of what you too can achieve with your wardrobe or potential wardrobe. The girl above looks so cool in her beanie, grandpa collared shirt, oversized knit, skirt, loafers and the layering of two tone socks. Even the guy below in Milan with his trench coat, jersey, slim jeans and funky sneakers stands out on the street.
Below in Paris the epitome of grace and style, this gorgeous lady is riding along dressed to impress. I can barely walk in high heels let alone ride my bike in them...shhh don't tell anyone.
Above is a great example of how fashion no matter where you are can inspire and translate into so many areas, such as clothes, interiors and homewares just to highlight a few.
