I stopped following The Sartorialist a while ago when he started concentrating more on fashion industry
influencers people than regular nobodies.
This brief interview between Scott Shuman and Koto Bolofo is a rather wonderful eye-opener into the world of photo book publishing. Or to be more precise, the rarefied world of Steidl book publishing. I seem to have quite a few Steidl books, including the eleven-volume example that Bolofo refers to here.
It’s his series on Hermès, which came out in 2011, but I remember waiting two years for as the publication date kept moving! (I blogged about it here and here and someone recently emailed asking if I’d be interested in selling it. Answer: no thank you!) (more…)
I love this combo of long and long on The Sartorialist. We’re so used to the oversized boxy silhouette that this looks different and sweet.
I also just noticed the Vuitton bag. I’ve recently fallen back in love with the classic Vuitton monogram used in the most simple context and you can’t beat a functional cross-body bag.
If you’re not familiar with Imagine Fashion, let me enlighten you. The two-year-old video editorial site presents short films and interviews looking into the minds of fashion creatives – remember this one with Leila Menchari, who has dreamt up Hermes’ dreamy window displays for 35 years?
As part of its series ‘Creative Minds’, Imagine Fashion has featured probing interviews with Dennis Freedman, Susie Bubble, Scott Schuman and Constanza Pascolato. Oh and me (interviewed by Godfrey Deeny at the beautiful Couturelab store). Click here or watch below…
