One of my favorite style icons Ana @anagimeno222 standing out in the crowd ( as usual)

 

I should do a slide show of some of the images I’ve shot of Ana over the last 12 years !

On the Street…Savile Row, London

22017londonfw

This is Tanaka, the very knowledgeable salesperson at @josephfashion in London that helped me buy my first pair of elastic waist, grey wool flannel pants and ,ironically enough, I bought them on Savile Row.

 

Shouldn’t every salesperson that sells clothing have a tape measure around their neck at all times?

That’s a tricky haircut to make look good but something about the bravado of youth that makes it work

I think it’s great to wear a one-piece when it looks as “one-derful” as this!

 

Yes, thank you I just made that up!

On the Street…Beppe, Paris

Beppe is easily one of the most chic and most young-at-heart gentleman I know

 

(and I know a lot of them)

On the Street…Washington St., New York

21317jj1369ig

I thought this look needed a close-up and a full body!

 

This is another example of Jenny buying into a color story, this time brown & yellow.

 

The coat, earrings and scarf were all bought vintage over a period of a couple years and only until she recently found the coat did the look come together.

 

I love that it’s all vintage but it doesn’t scream “I wear vintage!”

I like the look but it wouldn’t be quite as interesting without that stripe on the pant

The only young lady (except for Jenny) that I’m actually curious about what she’ll wear each day. And one of the only women worth a two image post.

 

21317nyfw1558ig

 

Love the pleated full-cut raw denim with watch fob and the dramatically collared coat

Can’t believe this was just last week!

 

Something interesting I heard yesterday from Jenny¬†and recently from Phil Oh¬†(two people who are very good at creating colorful outfits) is that they both “know their color palette”.

 

This idea that they instinctually know what shades and hues of color that they like and buy.

 

For instance, Jenny loves green/blue combos and put together this outfit with items bought (mostly vintage) over the last three years.

 

Like a photograph, the outfits seem to develop over time.

I love when your eye adjusts and a look that would have seemed odd before doesn’t seem so odd now

I really love these long drawn-out proportions, this look feels like a real-life version of a fashion designers inspiration sketch.

On the Street…The Top Third, Milan

11517Scar6B9126IG

 

Often the most important part of a men’s look is in the top third.

 

I know it seems like I have been focusing on portraits lately but I think that is a result of really narrowing the images to the most important elements of an individual look.

 

Here ,for example, the shoes, the pants, the belt were pretty basic.

 

The real drama of the look is in the scarf and coat and how those patterns worked topped off by the sunglasses and beautiful hair.

 

If you look back at the recent “portraits” you’ll see that there’s still a lot of fashion in those images.
