The Sartorialist Page 1
We love The Sartorialist blog, but the man behind it all? — not so much. Scott Schuman hasn’t come across as a particularly warm person in his previous interviews, and brought more of the same at the Fairchild Fashion Media Men’s Wear Summit.
Anna Dello Russo is easily one of the most photographed editors during fashion week — or, for that matter, ever. But that wasn’t always the case.
We usually spot Scott Schuman pedaling around town on his bike or romaing the streets of Soho on foot, but apparently the man also knows his cars — or at least knows how to sell them.
The Sartorialist is without a doubt one of the most recognizable names in street style blogging. It’s also one that founder Scott Schuman trademarked years ago, even before he really made a name for himself in the industry, ventured into print, and began shooting big time fashion campaigns and editorials. But that hasn’t stopped the spawning of copycat blogs like the Campus Sartorialist, which takes Schuman’s concept to the stomping grounds of college students worldwide.
If it feels like it was just the other day you were reading about Scott Schuman‘s distaste for print media and Dolce & Gabbana‘s blog-courting press stunts, that’s probably because it was! In the meantime, however, it seems he’s changed his tune – or at least mellowed out a bit in preparation for his interview with none other than Swide, Dolce & Gabbana’s in-house blog.
Scott Schuman can certainly hold a grudge.
We were appalled when we read a particularly jerky interview with Scott Schuman last week, but it looks like the blogger has changed his mind on both Tavi Gevinson and The Sartorialist‘s business model.
Today Scott Schuman gave an interview that blew our minds in a really horrible way, and proved that the man behind The Sartorialist is cripplingly out of touch.
It wouldn’t be a Tuesday if there wasn’t a body image-fueled controversy happening somewhere on the web. Today’s comes courtesy of a normally idolized fashion figure: Scott “The Sartorialist” Schuman, who posted two images of fellow style blogger Angelica Ardasheva on his site yesterday along with the caption, “I loved that she’s a bigger, curvier girl than most of the other bloggers who you see in the press and tend to represent the genre.”
Garance Dore and Scott Schuman are a match made in blogging heaven — and it was only a matter of time before one of them moved in with the other. So now that Dore has moved from Paris to a new loft the couple shares in New York’s Greenwich village, will there be a turf war over who gets to photograph the city’s coolest people?
Who doesn’t have a crush on Scott Schuman? Whether its because you love his photographs, his blog, his style, his eyes, or his girlfriend, the man behind The Sartorialist is a cultural phenomenon — at least within the fashion world. And now he’s the subject of a visually stunning film by the folks over at Intel (yay branding!) which follows Schuman as he goes about his day from barber shop shave to publishing his photographs. Most importantly, we learn that Schuman has loved fashion almost as long as he has loved the ladies.
Every morning when I get dressed, I wonder if my outfit would be Bill Cunningham-approved. And I am certainly not the only one.
After spending time with Scott Schuman and Garance Dore, Italian fashion director Giovanna Battaglia came up with an idea for a photo shoot for Vogue Pelle. The spread, titled Can I Take A Picture? and shot by Schuman, celebrates the “cool, blogger girl.”
In case you need another reason to wait in line for hours to pick up your iPad on Saturday, Schuman has just released a new Sartorialist iPad app which will be available to download on Saturday.
