On the Street……Nicole, Berlin


I’m in Berlin for the next two days between the men’s shows in Milan and Paris. As you can tell I have been jumping around a lot lately. You will soon be seeing lots of images from Pitti, Milan, Berlin, Paris, Venice, and finally back to Sao Paulo. I kind of love mixing up the images from these cities. It was very warm in Florence and very cool here in Berlin which leads to a really great contrast in Summer looks – it’s difficult for me to pack clothes for a trip like this!

On the Street……Color Trim, Florence


I could shoot a Navy & White combo at Pitti about a million times. Here, however, I love how the little red scarf detail and the orange trim on the shoes take the look to a whole new level.

Style Profile… Sofia Hedstrom, NYC

Sofia Hedstrom aka Sofia Headstrong

Job?
Correspondent Swedish Television, SVT and Svenska Dagbladet.

Best Sartorial advice from your parents?
“Hel och ren,” best translated as ?wholesome and clean.? Because of them I really take care of my precious fashion pieces and feel guilty when I walk around in a coat with a missing button.

Style icons?
New Yorkers, I love the city and think people here offer more diversity and sense of style than anywhere else in the world. An afternoon on the town beats most fashion magazines when it comes to inspiration.

Describe your personal style?
I think dressing is like acting, I am always trying to dress for an imaginary roll that I make up in the morning? like today I want to be a 70′s biker chic from France, or pretend that I am on a cruise in the Stockholm archipelago. I like conceptual dressing, and in my concepts elegance and femininity are always the key words.

Most cherished item?
I really love an old pocket watch from the 1910′s that belongs to my family and therefore gives it extra value.

I feel best wearing?
Colors, I don’t feel like myself in black.

Is there a particular color?
I am a red loving girl it is the dominant color in my wardrobe. I tend to wear red every day, and if not, my red lipstick shows my never-ending love for this beautiful color. Red represents everything from revolution to love. It is a color that makes people happy and energized – at least that is the effect red has on me – and the reason why I stay faithful.

This photo of you was up in Scott?s solo show at The Danziger Projects, how did it feel to see a photo of yourself up in an exhibit?
To me, the photo sums up fashion week by showing excitement and exhaustion at the same time. I remember the moment when the photo was taken, how much my Miu Miu shoes did hurt after running around the city and how my brain was trying to sum up the shows and how much I was looking forward to that evening. When I saw the photo at the exhibit it made me go back to that special day and it reminded me, and still does, why I keep running around in uncomfortable shoes.

How do you feel about people’s responses to the photo, both online and in “real life”?
Both thankful and entertained. A lot of people refer to me as ?the girl in the red dress,? and since I think the photo represents me really well I am happy to hear what people have to say!

Do you get recognized by people?
I get recognized a lot by people because of Scott’s work. People sometimes come up to me when I am waiting for the L-train and want to talk about my style. One funny thing is when other photographers ask if they can take my picture during fashion week they always refer to Scott?s work.

The first thing I look at in another Sartorialist’s outfit?
I always look at the color combinations first, and then the concept and then I make up a story around what the person is wearing.

I always break this fashion rule?
I love unexpected color combinations and always trust my gut feeling when it comes to this, even if it looks weird the first time when I see myself in the mirror.

I never break this fashion rule?
?Wholesome and clean,? I will for sure never be a punk when it comes to my looks.

Favorite designers?

Crap, I didn’t get the shot that shows more of her bag. It was a great grey/black/white buffalo plaid, and I just love the idea of pairing that with a small floral print in the same color scheme.

On the Street……Fulton St., Brooklyn

One of the tricky parts of shooting a fashion blog is the temptation to always be looking for fashion with a capital ‘F.’

Although I do shoot that a lot, especially at the shows, when I am “on the street” I shoot with a slightly different eye.

When I am in a neighborhood I’m not looking for the “next big trend” or a ground-breaking style statement, but just reacting when I see a person and thinking to myself “he/she looks nice.”

“Looking nice” is truly underrated; the young lady I posted yesterday looked nice, very nice. Her dress was very simple, but simply wonderful.

The young lady in today’s post is dressed very simply, and yet I couldn’t help but notice her in the crowded cafe where she was sitting with a friend. She looked so elegant in her simple white summer dress with a colorful floral scarf wrapped high around her shoulders. Not groundbreaking, not earth shattering, but in its own way, a very glamorous way to live a simply nice life.

This feels so “Soho circa 1980″ to me. A David Byrne/Basquiat moment.
