In the first picture, the graceful curve of her body and face, and the dramatic backdrop – it just makes for a stunning composition.
April 19, 2010 at 5:54 am
Those are gorgeous, in the truest sense of the word. Just wonderful.

Very good series. Your blog is increasingly like a fashion & lifestyle magazine, rather than a street-style blog. I approve.
April 19, 2010 at 7:18 am
wonderful set, marvellous exhibition, ty
April 19, 2010 at 7:21 am
Both model and apt. makee lovely subjects. This shoot seems so art-directed though; am I looking at an Anthropologie catalog?

This looks like the set of a Wes Anderson movie.
April 19, 2010 at 8:35 am
Oh ! The textures, the atmosphere, the colors, the light, the combination of old / new / retro / modern / dirty / clean, the nostalgia spread (or I think the best word for this would be a portuguese one : "saudade")… this cycle is realy fantastic.

so faux, antler art, girl dj, rundown houses, it's all so BoBo and even worse it's an American take on BoBo.

Gorgeous editorial stuff. There is something beautiful about a well-loved rundown apartment. Reminds me of an old apartment I had in Montréal.

it feels more like art – i would expect to see this in a gallery.
i agree, your blog is getting more eclectic and yet even more engaging for your viewers.

oh i wish i could live there! how beautiful!

Great idea for photo session! Deserted interior with stuffed animals is very mysterious and made shots unique.
April 19, 2010 at 11:16 am
April 19, 2010 at 11:18 am
Simply beatiful. I really thought the first one was vintage from the 70's. And though, timeless…
April 19, 2010 at 11:30 am
I love the first photo. Beautiful! x
April 19, 2010 at 11:35 am
Fantastic! Rich with color, texture and mood.Love it!

New style for you, Sart? I suppose I'm used to your street fashion photos, but this is really surprising and beautiful. :D
Also, this is perfectly unrelated, but I figure you might be able to offer some insight. I'll be starting Fashion Design classes at FIT in the Fall, and I'd like to find work at a fine tailor shop or similar while I'm studying there. I'd love to be an apprentice, but I'd be happy if they just let me be the cashier – I'd learn by watching the tailors work! Sart, do you know of any NYC custom sartorial establishments that are looking for new blood? :D
April 19, 2010 at 11:57 am
Gorgeous colors and light – wish I could find a house like this in my area!
April 19, 2010 at 12:03 pm
looks like an anthropologie/urban outfitters catalog. compliment or criticism? depends on your style. i do think it's time for a new concept, though. "pretty, young thing in a big, old house" is getting a little played out, don't you think?
April 19, 2010 at 12:14 pm
You have been telling incredible stories recently with the series of photos you have posted in the past week or so. I am moved and awestruck by your ability to capture the moment in a person's life, their clothing and the space they invade. Really lovely. Thank you.
April 19, 2010 at 12:29 pm
I love the paint peeling, the atmosphere, combined with the youth of the lady. She doesn't have much, the apartment is almost bare, but memories and music.
April 19, 2010 at 12:31 pm
These pictures remind me of a series taken by the late Francesca Woodman in a house that looks very much like this one. Beautiful work in both cases. (Check her out on the web.)
April 19, 2010 at 12:38 pm
these are really inspiring. beautiful tones. realy digging the crackling wallpaper and denim shirt.
April 19, 2010 at 12:39 pm
And I say to myselfIt's wonderful, wonderfulOh, so wonderful, my love…
But I do not like the reflection in a round mirror, it is very artificial …
omg…….im in loveeeeeeeeee…totally in love with these picturesssssssssss

April 19, 2010 at 1:08 pm
I loooove that first photo. Some pictures just make you wanna live in them. Just be INSIDE that image and that feeling. I just want to sit on the floor and listen to her play. I really like the light in this picture.

all i can say is wow. i want to live in a place like that.
April 19, 2010 at 1:58 pm
Love the colours, setting – everything, but I'm curious… What's the background story? It's not street style…
April 19, 2010 at 2:09 pm
Love it!!!!!!it proves that beauty does come with age.
April 19, 2010 at 2:11 pm
WOW!Like modern Ilya Repin or Gustave Courbet.Very Very beautyful!
April 19, 2010 at 2:14 pm
Wow, beautiful shots. The processing is so soft but has a warm vintage feel and really pulls together the series. I love the quarky objects and your compositions area always so spot on. A beautiful model never hurts either.
April 19, 2010 at 2:23 pm
Love the room, love the DJ.
April 19, 2010 at 2:25 pm
I love the shots, except for the DJ one. It's… really uncomfortable. I want her to step away from the tables. (Maybe it's because I grew up with DJing.)
I have a problem with making models do things that take skill they don't have, like ballet or being funky. Haha.
April 19, 2010 at 2:26 pm
wonderful series. i found the shots of the empty rooms and hallway very moving. the black and white photo of the young man on the rooftop is framed so well.
April 19, 2010 at 2:27 pm
I love how much music is going on in these pictures.
April 19, 2010 at 2:31 pm
i've been here before. it's an empty (besides the taxidermy and turntables) manhattan apartment .. im pretty sure this is a just a peek into it's use, it's not 'set up' to look like this.. pretty cool
April 19, 2010 at 2:36 pm
Beautiful shots, yes. However I can't seem to get over the fact that this screams lead poising and mold! Vintage is beautiful. Uninhabitable, condemned building with hipster is just obnoxious. This went a little too far for me.
April 19, 2010 at 2:45 pm
Wow, that first photo is so beautiful.. Everything about it just works – the composition, the lighting and styling. Full of aesthetic appeal!I love the other shots too.. That place looks very atmospheric. Peeling paint, stamps and all!Was this shot for any particular magazine/ comission, or just a personal project?
April 19, 2010 at 2:51 pm
great – if its real. if it's a model in a fashion shoot please no, 'the real' is what's so great about your blog. the other I can get from countless glossies…
April 19, 2010 at 3:04 pm
wow this post is simply magical and mysterious
April 19, 2010 at 3:08 pm
April 19, 2010 at 3:13 pm
Bravo Sart!I love your new dimension as an artist.
April 19, 2010 at 3:19 pm
This series looks painfully mannered and self-conscious to me. I'm irritated looking at it. When you contrast these with the honesty and vitality of the vintage photo contest entries the difference in spirit and merit is embarrassing. I love your street style photos, and the integrity in those shots is, again, echoed in the honesty of the vintage shots. The combination is so incredibly inspiring and I've been enjoying visiting this site so much recently because of it. If this is a commercial shoot or something, I'm sure you nailed the concept 100%, but I don't understand why it's being featured here. I have no patience for a lifestyle shoot when there's real life to look at.
April 19, 2010 at 3:30 pm
This space is fantastic! Where is it? Well done!
April 19, 2010 at 3:39 pm
The shots are lovely, but overall they feel forced. I thought I left the antler trend in NYC when I moved to SF 3 years ago….interesting to see that it hasn't died. I wonder what the attraction is? Very intriguing! =)
April 19, 2010 at 3:44 pm
These are absolutely gorgeous!
April 19, 2010 at 4:19 pm
This is exquisite. Oh the walls, the antlers..the boar! Please have more shoots like this!!
April 19, 2010 at 4:23 pm
great! i loves this rooms!
April 19, 2010 at 4:35 pm
April 19, 2010 at 4:53 pm
for Lara 3:19this was no commercial shoot. Those are her clothes (all vintage or flea market) and this is here place. We shot with just the two of us – no hair or make-up person. For those reasons this fits the honesty of the shots I have always shown. and yes, she is no DJ but she was having so much fun acting like one we shot it anyway.
April 19, 2010 at 5:03 pm
So old scenery… and so vivid..great photos!
April 19, 2010 at 5:09 pm
wow. so beautiful.
April 19, 2010 at 6:13 pm
April 19, 2010 at 6:27 pm
You should've consulted a DJ before you set up that shot with the turntables. With all the care that obviously went into this shoot, which overall looks amazing, someone could've connected the turntables and mixer properly.
April 19, 2010 at 6:30 pm
Awww, my fairy friend Francesca! Beautiful photos!
April 19, 2010 at 6:35 pm
It looks like a story waiting to happen and reminds me of my favorite editorials from when I was a teenager. I miss that element in fashion photography.
April 19, 2010 at 7:00 pm
Wow!!! Amazing photos!! Aplausos!
April 19, 2010 at 7:20 pm
Why doesn't anyone plug their damn mixers in?
April 19, 2010 at 7:30 pm
excellent! please continue innovating on the blog.
Amazing pics but the house is SCARY!
the bulb shaped highlight beneath the boar's head is a wonderful frame for the shadow of the mongoose/cobra battle.and from photo to photo: love the variation in hues (and texture) within such a tight spectrum.
P R I M O E Z A
April 19, 2010 at 7:38 pm
the photos are totally gorgeous and this is lovely to see once in a while in contrast to the street style shots.
April 19, 2010 at 8:02 pm
Brilliant as always…
the second picture down reminds me of Ghost World :]
April 19, 2010 at 8:21 pm
this set of photos might just be my favortie thing in the world…ever.thank you.
April 19, 2010 at 9:33 pm
That is just an amazing roomThe shoot is just breath taking. Absolutely inspirational
April 19, 2010 at 11:07 pm
i love the colors of that room and the pealing paint. its beautiful.
Although… i really hate all the taxidermy, its in really awful taste and i dont know why people promote it as being "chic" or cool.
April 19, 2010 at 11:09 pm
animal parts for decoration yuck me out, but I really like the faded color scheme. I could never imagine anyone sane living in a house as run down as this, though…but when I look at these pictures I think of a runaway orphan who has created a secret sanctuary.
April 19, 2010 at 11:22 pm
theses shots are ABSOLUTELY amazing!!!!xo
April 19, 2010 at 11:42 pm
These photos remind me of a fabulous photo shoot I attended in Los Angeles. The scene itself is just amazing. Lovely photos, wonderful atmosphere. Bravo!
April 20, 2010 at 12:28 am
Looking at these photographs makes me feel so understood.
April 20, 2010 at 12:34 am
What a bold set of photos, not discriptions were needed at all!
April 20, 2010 at 1:41 am
What a story!
April 20, 2010 at 2:38 am
April 20, 2010 at 2:55 am
I am a long time reader, but this is the first time I've felt compelled to comment.
This set is absolutely intoxicating, and I hope to see more posts in the future akin to this one.
April 20, 2010 at 2:57 am
Music and stuffed animals? Didnt look that pleasing. But felt warmth in the colors and the old worn-out, lived-in, used-up kinda look combined with soft tone. Great Lighting. Great shots.
April 20, 2010 at 3:03 am
love the photos especially lighting and how the green contrasts with wood. i get a very berlin in nyc feeling. xander

April 20, 2010 at 3:59 am
I love the first pic, so country-chic!
April 20, 2010 at 5:06 am
Well, if this is not a commercial shoot then it is even more strange that it looks so staged and, as Lara said, self-conscious. Does not feel authentic to me -even the commercial shoots like the one for Vogue Pelle feel more real and alive. And not relating to any of this: I love your book!!
April 20, 2010 at 5:36 am
As a vegetarian, i do not fancy the first two, but the rest is superb.
April 20, 2010 at 5:45 am
A study of light and shade with linear complexity that beckons the viewer into the heart of the study,the eye follows the play of horizontal and vertical …I'm almost inspired enough to convert it to a study in oil its so captivating…I would have insisted on a diaphinous wisp of fabric floating on an invisible breeze love the eggshell/turquise/aubergine scheme of things..this last photo is exquisite!
April 20, 2010 at 8:02 am
I find the building and the photos very beautiful inspiring… the dead animals not so much
April 20, 2010 at 8:08 am
Sorry, can't see the beauty of the pictures, all that taxidermy is really hideous. Can't understand the fascination with dead stuffed animals or, worse, cut stuffed heads of dead animals. Maybe someone could explain the appeal of having them around?
April 20, 2010 at 8:22 am
This might just be one of the most beautiful posts (and blog) i have ever seen!
April 20, 2010 at 8:40 am
what a picturesque place!! would be so much fun doing a shoot there. love the paint colour!
April 20, 2010 at 8:53 am
I have seen better places torn down…that can't be safe. The mixers aren't plugged in because the electrical system is not up to code. Romantically aged building looks damned dangerous. Not a straight floor in the place. However, I do dig the shots. Very Artful, Sart.
April 20, 2010 at 9:31 am
Oh gosh, amazing shoot! ;)Shonwer
April 20, 2010 at 9:39 am
C'est vraiment beau, j'ADdore:)
April 20, 2010 at 10:55 am
Fantastic sequence. The model mixed in with the the other shots really works. Much better than trying to cram all the ambiance in fewer shots.
April 20, 2010 at 10:58 am
I love these pictures! It has that cool, indie sensibility, which is a refreshing change from all the polished fashion shoots we've seen.
April 20, 2010 at 11:22 am
April 20, 2010 at 12:28 pm
girlfriend needs to get out of that apartment before she gets lead poisoning or tetanus or something. Also, this whole set of photos is just creepy: an innocent waif who can't see the danger she is in. Just feels ominous and predatory to me…
April 20, 2010 at 1:47 pm
I like the laptop. :)
April 20, 2010 at 2:20 pm
Oh, so amazing photos with notion. Who's author, please?

Dear Mr Sartorialist, you really should consider doing photos for album covers.
April 20, 2010 at 8:46 pm
The sparseness of the flat makes me think of both poverty and freedom. The shots are very beautiful. I do agree with the comments about the DJ photo, though. It was this shot that made me think that the whole thing might have been set up for the shoot – it made me question the authenticity of all the images. Once I would have loved to live like this, now I have too many things, including a husband and small kids, sigh…
April 20, 2010 at 10:23 pm
Gorgeous composition of course, you are really comming into your eye as a pure artists, as i have said before.No reflection on you, but someone feed that girl a sandwich.
April 20, 2010 at 11:39 pm
Wow. These are your most amazing non-street fashion shots yet.
April 21, 2010 at 7:30 am
Love the interiors
April 21, 2010 at 10:55 am
Stunning. That first shot with the deer antlers and that woman's equally long neck and delicate face sticking out is perfection.
April 21, 2010 at 11:19 am
i really love this series of photos… it's awe-inspiring… really… the colors, composition and lighting is spot-on! everything that i love…
April 21, 2010 at 2:31 pm
who's that girl?
April 21, 2010 at 4:02 pm
These pictures are wonderful.
April 21, 2010 at 5:55 pm
that picture of the girl spinning is so rad. I never see homes this empty. It really inspires me to get rid of everything that isnt of a huge importance to me. I wish I wasn't such a jack of all trades and a master of none… well fashion is kinda my thing now but fashion is kinda cluster fuckish
April 21, 2010 at 6:06 pm
i love this series of images!

The most beautiful serie !Love it !
April 22, 2010 at 9:11 am
Wow this is the first time I've ever commented because this is the first time EVER I I've been disappointed with your shots.. Nothing about the clothes is original and a be-knickered girl listening to records on the ground alone is a dilapidated house is really cliché. It's like the cover of a bad indieband's first EP. Please no more! Back to the beautiful street shots with real people not stagey irritating model shoots.
April 22, 2010 at 11:05 am

Lovely photos as always,thank you for the constant source of inspiration.

Anonymous, that was exactly what I was going to say. That shot is SO Joni Mitchell- and I'm so happy to see her style starting to ebb into our modern fashion. She's not quite back. But hopefully, she'll come back around

This post is amazing – the photos remind me of Virginia Woolf's classic "To the Lighthouse". The wild boar's head, the creaking doors, the torn wall paint… the melancholy and emptiness of the setting contrast so well with the girl's youth and vitality!

What a nostalgic take, with a bit of modern to add some light. Great!
