A truly beautiful Minxy mix of charm, inspiration, practical advice, and pretty projects to simplify and beautify your life and home. - Jane Brocket, The Gentle Art of Domesticity
Very excited – just got my hot little hands on a pre-ordered copy of Scott Schuman’s new book, based on his wonderful blog.
I can’t say enough how inspiring The Sartorialist website is – if you haven’t discovered it yet, I dare you not to become instantly addicted. I read it every day, along with sassy French lady Garance Doré, which is more personal but similar in concept.
What I love most about both these sites is the celebration of style, fashion and beauty within an everyday context. Not just street style, and not just fashionable people; but edgy students, natty elderly gentlemen and kooky-looking kids as well as a colourful line-up of models and fashionistas from around the globe. Both show a much broader spectrum of humanity than you’ll find in most fashion magazines, and the vast majority of these people are their own stylists. So impressive.
Here’s a selection of some of my favourite recent pics. As Kanye West succinctly put it: ‘Scott doesn’t just take pictures, he captures emotion. He is not just a photographer. He’s a historian marking the feelings of this generation one photo at a time.’
The world can always do with more beauty. Thanks for sharing, Scott & Garance – très, très fabu.
