Hot off the Runway….Saint Laurent Spring/Summer 2014

 

Is Hedi Slimane’s new collection for the house of Saint Laurent the right direction? Or in retrospect, was Fall 2013 the edge that Saint Laurent needs?

Believe it or not, this is the first denim jacket I’ve ever worn.  I’ve tried for years, but they never fit me correctly. This time, I finally did something about it and had the waistband brought up to my real waist.

 

Having the right length on a denim jacket makes all the difference.

The Sartorialist Webseries for AOL On, IV

Sound played a key character in the making of these small films.  The sound of the bull’s hooves, the clank of sword against sword in the fencing episode, the sizzle of gnocchi frying in a pan at Barbuto and the explosion of the ball as it hit the cement wall in this episode featuring handball.

 

Add this to the fact that the guys playing are handball champions, brothers and look like Greek Gods.  I’m pretty happy with how the action turned out on film.

The Sartorialist for AOL On…..Bullfighter REPOST

 

So the bullfighting episode caused quite the controversy. That’s good.

 

If you took the time to watch the episode, I address the conflict that most modern people feel about this sport.

 

I wish the bull didn’t have to be killed.  I had a blast with my experience without either side getting hurt. Maybe there’s a way of updating the sport without having to throw the baby out with the bathwater.

 

I’m quite proud that I can use this blog as an open forum for both sides of the issue.  I just wish more people would take the time to write a thoughtful and respectful opinion instead of just spewing blind rage.

 

I’d love to hear ideas of how the sport could be updated.  Couldn’t bullfighting learn something from fencing? Fencing was, at one time, a life-and-death sport/event that has been modernized. The death element was removed but, the excitement remained.   Maybe the bull’s body could be zoned and by landing blows with a sword-like instrument the bullfighter wins points.  The competition then would be about which bullfighter has more points after a round.  The sport is then bullfighter against bullfighter, not bullfighter against bull. It’s just an idea, but I think it’s a more constructive conversation than most of the rage filled comments that accompanied the first post.

 

I’d love to hear some other ideas about how bullfighting could be updated.  I really think this blog is at it’s best when its trying to build new ideas instead of just tearing things down.

The Sartorialist Webseries for AOL On

 

The power to transform is one of the most elemental and exciting powers of fashion.  Clothing lets you live the part.

 

When AOL offered me a chance to create 12 small episodes about fashion and style, I knew my angle would have to investigate how clothing creates one’s personal character.

 

Bullfighting with Sebastian Danko, cooking with Jonathan Waxman, walking the streets and shooting with one of my heroes Steve McCurry…these are just some of the episodes you will enjoy watching as much as I enjoyed filming.

Fashion Week Wardrobe, Day 1

90513scott4684web

Uniqlo is killing it with their pants this season.  Finally, someone is cutting slim pants ($50-60) with the right proportions (at least for me).  I would put a link to these exact pants on their website, but their site is so frustrating. I can’t even find them on there.

 

I also really love the Save Khaki tee shirts ($40) .  The cut is great, but they offer an extremely limited color palette.  I’d buy more, but I can only buy so many dust pale blue tees in one season.

 

UPDATE: I found the link to the Uniqlo pants!
