Very intrigued by these Poland posts. Gorgeous photo and subjects… like the outfit on the left.
October 24, 2012 at 4:36 am
exactly! these Poland photos are amazingly beautiful! I love the mystery in this one, and there are lots of stories that one can deduce. love!
October 28, 2012 at 12:19 pm
Love the quiet aesthetic you captured in Poland. Fantastic composition with these beautiful young women.
October 22, 2012 at 8:40 pm
Love the gritty look to this photo. Very different to the other fashion week photos!

What I like about the grittiness is that the girls themselves are very pretty, and if it wasn’t for the hard (and wise) looks in their eyes, I would be wondering what they were doing there.
October 23, 2012 at 7:52 am
@The 3 F’s
I suppose they are living there. Most part of city centers of Polish cities look like that.
October 23, 2012 at 10:22 am
oh really? i suppose the cities i’m seeing are only exeptions that are proving your rule?
October 23, 2012 at 11:21 am
You are very wrong if you think that all the cities in Poland looks like that… Most of them are beuatifull with very interesting history. Come visit us and you will find out :)
October 23, 2012 at 6:59 pm
Photo is great. This fog is insane. But I must agree with Robert. I’ve been to Poland many times. I was born in Görlitz. I live in Frankfurt am Main. Polish cities are dirty and seedy when compared with German cities. Graffiti is everywhere even on churches and Poles are OK with it.
October 25, 2012 at 8:47 am
I must strongly disagree with Michael. I’ve lived in Poznan for 4 years. Before I moved here, I’d lived in Murcia, Paris, Hamburg. Every of these cities has its own ‘dirty’ districts. Well, some of them are just old (not dirty) and they need some renovation. If you compare a business center to a district built in the middle 50′s, you make a big mistake. I think Poznan is much cleaner than f.e. Paris where gutters flow thru streets.
October 31, 2012 at 2:30 am
y’all should visit kuala lumpur. our city most beautiful compared with all cities y’all said!
October 24, 2012 at 12:19 am
Most former East European cities are really really beautiful and old! Worn out buildings maybe, but they have a wonderful architecture. You should visit places like Krakow, Prague, Tallinn, Budapest and of courseSt. Petersburg which is the most beautiful city in the whole world, wins even Paris!
October 26, 2012 at 5:33 pm
There are always different points of view. For me for example a city which is completely clear, without any graffiti or old buildings, is sort of without “emotions”. Everything what you can see in every place, is a image of what happened to it, what kind of people lived here, what they went through. There is a dirt everywhere in the world as well as poverty etc. It’s a part of our reality. I personally see piece of beauty, an element of emotions in mostly every graffiti or destroyed building… Imagine a men without any scars, wrinkles, moles or freckles. How plastic and unnatural he would look.
October 22, 2012 at 11:25 pm
There is something bleak yet wonderful about this shot.
October 23, 2012 at 2:56 am
it’s like a frame from a film! :)
October 23, 2012 at 4:16 am
Agreed, I really like the foggy background, the writings on the wall, and the general gritty feeling of this picture
October 23, 2012 at 8:37 am
very nice capture of ‘tude in this shot.

Have a great time in Poland, You should visit Krakow too.
October 23, 2012 at 2:48 am
I am soon visiting Krakow, I look forward to going there.
This image is perfection!
So different form other posts you do.
October 23, 2012 at 7:43 am
As a girl from Kraków I am very happy to read here that u like it! Such a great city :)
October 22, 2012 at 9:02 pm
Beautiful girls! Love the soft, cozy knitwear!
October 22, 2012 at 9:05 pm
I find your photos to be incredible.
October 22, 2012 at 9:07 pm
simple. cozy. layered. hitting all the right things for fall.

californian highlights in Poland!
October 28, 2012 at 10:37 am
Amazing, i am polish myself (living in China for the past 10 years) and that was the first thing that came into my mind, too. They have this californian style, which is so much much polish at the same time… Interesting.
October 22, 2012 at 9:11 pm
The weather looks horrid! The girls are a breath of fresh air in comparison!
oh to have polish bone structure….beautiful girls!
October 22, 2012 at 9:15 pm
Some of the most beautiful women I’ve ever seen were in Kracow, Poland
October 22, 2012 at 9:20 pm
My first time to comment but had to! Great color story and combination of print and texture both on the subjects and their surroundings. Also love that it looks freezing therefore These girls are made of steel. Great shot.

October 22, 2012 at 9:25 pm
I find the graffiti in the background the most interesting… I was in Poland (Krakow, Warsaw, Kielce, Lublin) a few months ago and I found the juxtaposition of graffiti to contemporary Polish life and culture so interesting. At some point someone wrote “pinokio” on that wall… perhaps referring to their frustration with government. That it continues to remain untouched on that wall is fascinating! Poland is a lovely place, and this is a great picture.
October 23, 2012 at 9:00 am
You’re right! Graffiti is about Grobelny – mayor of Poznań!
October 22, 2012 at 9:30 pm
My grandmother came to this country from Poland at the start of the 20th century. This picture, these young women – it all makes me so proud of that heritage. Beautiful work.
October 22, 2012 at 9:40 pm
Wow, looks bleak, apocolyptic, but you found 2 shining lights
October 22, 2012 at 9:44 pm
Sheesh, eastern Euros are beautiful people
October 22, 2012 at 9:58 pm
these girls are so pretty!
October 23, 2012 at 2:02 am
I agree. They are so lovely; they remind me of my two daughters!
October 22, 2012 at 9:59 pm
love the setting

These are great photos from Poland. It’s nice to see photos from a different part of the world and of new people.
I’m especially intrigued by anything featuring the people and creativity of Eastern Europe. They have an entirely different aesthetic and it’s fascinating to see it featured here. Keep up the great work!
October 23, 2012 at 8:51 am
but Poland isn’t Eastern Europe, it’s Central. Go to Ukraine and you will notce the huge difference.
October 22, 2012 at 10:11 pm
They blend so well into their surroundings; a if they had planned to be in that spot at that very moment. Cozy.
October 22, 2012 at 10:15 pm
Wow, what a gorgeous photo, these two look so chic and cool. Great post.

October 22, 2012 at 10:25 pm
Such a cool dynamic to this photo between the subjects and the background!
October 22, 2012 at 10:30 pm
Love that you’re shooting in Poland!
October 22, 2012 at 10:32 pm
The blue graffiti & the bike on one horizontal, then the red lips & tail light on another make perfect parallels on this composition coup.
October 22, 2012 at 10:38 pm
Great!!love these girls…great street…wonderful mood!!
October 22, 2012 at 10:45 pm
October 22, 2012 at 10:49 pm
Very nice photo, everything looks fantastic!
October 22, 2012 at 11:01 pm
Incredible photo. It seems like these beautiful, stylish girls have so much thinly veiled disdain for the photographer. And the setting looks like a warzone. Enigmatic!
October 22, 2012 at 11:02 pm
Classy as hell!
October 22, 2012 at 11:22 pm
Slavic beauty makes everything else fade in the background.

this is exactly i think of poland…foggy and chilly:)
October 22, 2012 at 11:44 pm
Wow, this shot is perfection.
October 22, 2012 at 11:57 pm
great photo with the girls and the backdrop LOVE
October 23, 2012 at 12:05 am
I love that you are expanding into these new and “undiscovered” cities for fashion! It is so wonderful to be able to draw inspiration from fresh faces and new places! Thanks for branching out Scott!
October 23, 2012 at 12:17 am
Typical Poland: gray surroundings and beautiful girls- like flowers in the sea of gray reality; but the important thing is: these girls are happy and do not suffer from depressions etc. strong, independent and BEAUTIFUL.
October 23, 2012 at 12:32 am
Street style at its finest, organic, beautiful details.
October 23, 2012 at 12:53 am
I love this streetstyle, with the vintage bike and all! The looks are amazing!
October 23, 2012 at 1:01 am
this is not a photo, this is a masterpiece …

October 23, 2012 at 2:21 am
How cool are these girls! Amazing!
You meant Krakowska Street, right? :)
Lots of love from Poland, I’m head over heels with love with Your blog!
October 23, 2012 at 5:22 am
My sentiments exactly! ;) assume the picture was taken on Sunday – the fog was CRAZY!
October 23, 2012 at 2:33 am
It’s KRAKOWSKA St. not “Krakoeskaw” :) anyway, good picture!
October 23, 2012 at 2:46 am
Love this shot! Even more so because it was taken in Poland.
This is such a great picture and really refreshing after all the Milan, London , Paris parades you go to!
October 23, 2012 at 2:49 am
I think you meant “Krakowska St.” ;) Nice shot, though, as always.
charming atmosphere, typical image style street, one of the best shots
October 23, 2012 at 3:03 am
nice styles!!! love the picture! xo, Alma
October 23, 2012 at 3:15 am
Finally! I was looking forward to seeing pictures form Poland. Very polish, completely different fashion than the others, but cool. Have a great time in Poznan.
October 23, 2012 at 3:24 am
So far my impression from your photos is that every woman in Poland is stunningly beautiful in a natural way. I’m guessing this can’t actually be true, cool modelesque beauties populating the streets, but it sure does look that way.
October 23, 2012 at 3:31 am

I feel so calm with this picture.
October 23, 2012 at 4:10 am
My favourite Sartorialist picture for years!
So much more interest in this than in any couture shot, for me.
October 23, 2012 at 4:14 am
I like that style and the pics. It look great.
Awesome shot! Do come to Warsaw!
October 23, 2012 at 4:18 am
Being from “Eastern Europe” I am really excited to see ur photos from this part of Europe since you post photos from there so rarely .. I really hope you will have a good time and will come back to explore also other countries! I definitely think the girls in Eastern Europe have a good sense of style, that is bit different that you see in the streets of countries of Western Europe or New York, I am excited to see if you can capture that !
October 23, 2012 at 4:20 am
Oh, most beautiful photo! (Also I think the name of the street should be Krakowska, since there isn’t such thing as Krakoeskaw in Polish…)
I love how the colours match perfectly (and how the splash of colour on the bike is the same shade as one of graffitis)!
Please keep them comming :)
October 23, 2012 at 4:24 am
Great pic as always ! Thank You for visiting and I invite You to Wroclaw – also a beautiful place in Poland :)
October 23, 2012 at 4:36 am
Brilliant. I think there is something very real and vital about these Polish shots that is lacking in the Paris, Milan and especially NY ones. I don’t mean the composition or tonal qualities of the photo – it is the people in them. The others often seem vacuous and fake and often smug in their expensive attire; they preen and pose. The Polish ones, especially the artist have mystery and allure . . .
Beautiful picture! I was looking forward to seeing pictures form Estern Europe; waiting for more pictures from PL

Wow that’s new kind of destination!

Oh I love it..sooo natural
October 23, 2012 at 5:00 am
and just when you come to Poland for the first time (and I hope: not the last one!), and just when you come to Poznan (where I usually live), I’m in China, far, far away! how unlucky is that??
October 23, 2012 at 5:01 am
Im in love with this shot!
Just heard you’re coming to South Africa Scott (blog post)… EXCITED! Hope to meet you.
October 23, 2012 at 5:04 am
are you going to warszaw?
October 23, 2012 at 5:07 am
dunno if my other (earlier) comment will appear, but in the meantime, do you want to know the real spelling of the name of this street…or is this on purpose? ^^
October 23, 2012 at 5:08 am
just noticed – yeah, just like in the above comment in CAPS ;)
October 23, 2012 at 5:23 am
Oooh I love this photo, and the way they are looking at us, as if we were interrupting something!
October 23, 2012 at 5:27 am
Poznań, my city! Hope you liked it!
October 23, 2012 at 5:30 am
J’adore l’atmosphère qui se dégage de la photo. Des nuances de gris incroyables. Avez-vous remarqué que beaucoup de filles de l’EST ont les yeux gris aussi ?
Have a good day.
October 23, 2012 at 5:32 am
Welcome to Poland :) I was hoping you would visit us, there’s a lot to photograph here and I wold like to see your view of this wicked, sweet-sour reality. Come to Warsaw or Krakow some day!
October 23, 2012 at 5:35 am
Wonderful shot. Amazing the strength, the beauty, the young spirit of these women with all their lives forward … The red lips and the ring of the riding girl and the hands in movement of her friend in Poland….. Good to know about this country most of the time forgotten but very very interesting as well. Thanks for it!
October 23, 2012 at 5:43 am

great pic very tasty and nostalgic…please do come more often to Poland, we need such a kick! Your two pics did more to promote Poland as an interesting, modern place to visit, than most of the blogers, fashion designers and celebs from pl…I like that you went inside the city.than u, we are not so rural country anymore:)

That foggy background is perfect. Misterious and eye-catching shot. So Polish, because there’s overwhelming greyness and colours emerging from underneath.

Scott, you’ve got many followers in Poland ;) Me being one of them. Thanks for catching that beautiful foggy atmosphere, it brings back the memories of the crazy days I spent studying at Univ in Poznań. Magical place.
October 23, 2012 at 1:11 pm
Poznań has best-looking and best-dressed people in whole Poland in my opinion. I can even say, that is the most ‘western-european’ city in this country.
October 23, 2012 at 1:31 pm
Poland is not in Eastern Europe but in Central Europe (with Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary). Major difference people – they have latin alphabet, different mentality, are part of United Europe and they are catholic – not like in Easter Europe – russian-orthodox. ‘Easter Europe’ term does not apply to all the countries in that region anymore! – the differences are too big and growing.
October 23, 2012 at 3:51 pm
October 23, 2012 at 6:27 pm
finally someone admitted this :) hugs
October 24, 2012 at 12:28 am
I think people are meaning “Former East European” What it used to be for so long time. We all know its central Europe an a map. As we also know Sweden is up North :) But its still a huge difference if you compare Copenhagen and Bucharest. Already 10 minutes on the street in B you can see that you are in “East-Europe” Same with Poland and Estonia etc. Those countries are changing but really really slowly. I.e in Northern Europe we do not have any stray animals on the street, no people begging, and the roads are not full of huge wholes in them.. and you can drink the tap water.
October 24, 2012 at 5:42 pm
We drink tap water as well in Poland. Go to Paris and you’ll see stray animals on the street, lots of people begging, and the roads full of huge wholes in them, and that’s a western Europe!
October 23, 2012 at 2:03 pm
Beautiful photo, love their wool knits and cozy looks. It makes me love autumn :)
October 23, 2012 at 3:28 pm
You captured casual elegance in a raw setting.
October 23, 2012 at 3:38 pm

I remember this day, fog was incredible and meeting with Scott in Stary Browar also! br from Poznan
October 23, 2012 at 3:57 pm
Great photo- so beautiful these two
October 23, 2012 at 4:04 pm
Great shots! the way they’re looking is so “fierce”
October 23, 2012 at 4:26 pm
For the past two-three years, every time I have watched the photos on this blog, I have had the ardent wish deep inside me that you would come to Romania at least once. I always felt that even if you photograph so many people in western Europe, the U.S. and Asia, this central-eastern European look, this deep, too-wise for their age look is something you can only encounter in our side of Europe. Now I’m moving to London, but I still hope to see photos of some Romanian women on your blog one day. For now, the Polish are a delight.
October 23, 2012 at 5:30 pm
this would make a cool painting…maybe I will draw these two
October 23, 2012 at 5:48 pm
i’m so excited that you were in Poland! i always wanted to suggest you should come to visit but i was to embarassed to do so. next time you should come to Gdansk and Krakow, they are also very interesting! i hope you liked Poland, cheers :)!
October 23, 2012 at 6:45 pm
I Love these Poland Shots! very dramatic and different!
October 23, 2012 at 7:31 pm
Great photo, love the colours.
Warsaw is still waiting for you, Scott :)
October 23, 2012 at 8:26 pm
Good for you for giving Poland some much-deserved love, and attention! This nation is a rising star as far as design and fashion go, and the people have been a fascination of mine, since I grew up in an area heavily populated with Poles. I enjoy your work, please keep going back to Poland and Central/Eastern Europe…..Thank you Scott!
October 24, 2012 at 8:36 am

October 24, 2012 at 11:40 am
I’m liking the photos from Poland. There are some interesting looks..
October 24, 2012 at 1:23 pm
Really intriguing. Kind of exotic, kind of everyday.
October 24, 2012 at 9:39 pm
October 25, 2012 at 11:44 am
I love the slightly aggressive look you catch from the women in Poland, the pictures are indeed intriguing, striking.
October 26, 2012 at 7:47 am
Love how the blue on the graffiti matches the blue bike. Great image all together !!
October 26, 2012 at 1:11 pm
this is unbelievable. they look so beautiful. i love those haircuts and clothing. I told you: unbelievable.
visit my page.
October 28, 2012 at 1:23 pm
Finally, Scott in Poland! Looking at your book the other day, I was thinking, there should be some Polish accents. Btw interesting to read some comments about ‘magic’ wisdom in the eyes and ‘harsh’ surrounding. Being Polish I wonder what is so attractive now about the country that it is getting so hip among foreigners? Back to Polish girls, I would say they have a bit of Californian attitude but with a better style, less messy and more sharp&casual sexy. Scott hope you enjoy your visit.
October 29, 2012 at 1:42 am
POlish girls are simply gorgeous almost no matter what they wear. No matter there are at least 6 of them in TOP 30 greatest models of the ’00s according to Vogue, and almost half of them are Slavs..
October 29, 2012 at 3:26 am
Epic shot. I actually want to go and hang out with these girls at their ‘local’ and trade stories over cheap beer until the wee hours of the morning…
