The Man Who Knew Too Much
Haha. Yea Parisian (or French in general) service is not the best in the world ^^
Lovely pictures as usual!
October 5, 2009 at 9:53 am
Those grey shoes are amaaaaaazing…as is the Max Mara Coat – very much in line with a Michael Kor's coat recently shown in Vogue – photo is cut and hanging on idea board for inspiration..

O la la! Living the good life…
Tonight I will be dreaming I am also sitting at one of those tables one day- And tomorrow- And the day after tomorrow- And the day after the day after tomorrow…etc. etc.

Interesting set of pictures. I want more sets like this!The dotted pants are cool
October 5, 2009 at 10:03 am
why how lovely! j'adore parisian cafes! and all the people watching you can do.. :)
October 5, 2009 at 10:07 am
I so enjoyed this group of photos with commentary–a little Paris documentary to start the week.
That's one fashionable cafe. Love the Dolce & Gabbana silk trousers and Garance's coat that lets the 'sleevs underneath show through'!
October 5, 2009 at 10:09 am
That last picture: gorgeous
October 5, 2009 at 10:12 am
The 1st woman is beautiful and so gracious and classy.
October 5, 2009 at 10:17 am
HahahahaI laughed hard at the 'pleading for food' bit:)Although I never really had any issues with the service when in Paris:)
Sart, I have a question – when you and Garance are out together and you spot an interesting subject, do the two of you squabble over who gets to take their picture? I like to think it's a fun competition for you both!
Also, just picked up your book and I love, love, love it. Congratulations.
One Man's Style
dosent get much better than that..surrounded by beautiful women in an amazing cafe during paris fashion week….life's hard scott huh….haha
October 5, 2009 at 10:19 am
it must be so fun hanging out with garance! i wish i had a friend i could roam around snapping pictures with…
October 5, 2009 at 10:22 am
una historia contada a través de tres fotos magníficas.besos
I never quite understood the allure of those pajama pants, but now I get it! I get it! I am dying for those pants! Worn with that blazer they look much less like sleep clothes and more like chic trousers.
October 5, 2009 at 10:26 am
nice coat,max mara is the best making theirs
October 5, 2009 at 10:27 am
oh my gosh, I love this set of photos! You are surrounded by fashionistas. Loving the pajama pants on the first lady.
I want to be in this cafe!
October 5, 2009 at 10:29 am
I love the way Garance is hamming it up, haha.The first girl's style reminds me a bit of Lauren Hutton.
I LOVE the shoe shot. It's fantastic. Particularly after seeing how gracefully the woman in Converse is dressed and holds herself, the shot is even more striking. And I love her shoe practicality contrasted with the other lady's shoe elegance. Fantastique!
October 5, 2009 at 10:30 am
The lady in navy with dots is what style and class are about.
Since Age Zero
October 5, 2009 at 10:31 am
Is the lady in Photo #1 wearing silk, polka-dotted pajamas?
PS: love the cafe "Scenery" in Paris.
DEFINETELY EXCITING. LOVE IT. WISHIN YOUR STORY RIGHT NOW!!!!
i really enjoy this post! i keep coming back to look at the pictures.
October 5, 2009 at 10:32 am
i love the pants

October 5, 2009 at 10:33 am
Loving all of these photos…can't get enough of your blog. The perfect way to get my dose of fashion!
October 5, 2009 at 10:37 am
So I see.. Garance got her dream coat:)It looks great on her.PS: love the pj's!
October 5, 2009 at 10:39 am
Good googly-moogly — with company like that, who needs food?!
Garance looks wonderful in her new coat. Great choice.

Ah, to sit in a cafè in Paris and enjoy fashion life as it unravels :) Such a nice post!
October 5, 2009 at 10:44 am
Love the Dolce pajama pants with Converse.
October 5, 2009 at 10:47 am
Haha, namedropping, nice pictures though…
October 5, 2009 at 10:55 am
I adore the Parisien cafe culture, designers waiting for their coffee. Fashionistas are more than likely to be grabbing a coffee to go, when the fashion week is on!
October 5, 2009 at 10:58 am
October 5, 2009 at 10:59 am
what a life!
you + garance are super adorable!
October 5, 2009 at 11:03 am
Not all French cafes are created equal. Please add cafe's name next time. It makes for a more interesting read for those that know Paris.
October 5, 2009 at 11:04 am
Cafe culture has always been one of the most interesting things to do in Paris…to see and be seen…check out what other people wear…admire those long legs…drool over a derriere…Life at its best.
October 5, 2009 at 11:06 am
very funny shots. The lady in your first pisc elegant and nice. Garance is very enjoine, and Viviane i dont like.you are the best Scott, vip naming droping
October 5, 2009 at 11:11 am
I miss Paris!
October 5, 2009 at 11:16 am
Wow, how amaazing/funny. Wish I was there. The first girl is lovely!
October 5, 2009 at 11:17 am
fantastique.. w parigi e lo STILE..
October 5, 2009 at 11:25 am
love the coat! looks great on her, but how come no stripes? :)
October 5, 2009 at 11:42 am
Love those silk PJs in the first couple of pics. As usual, Garance looks great in the Max Mara short sleeve coat. Love it paired with gray.
October 5, 2009 at 11:48 am
love thiese tones and colors!!

October 5, 2009 at 11:55 am

i love pictures 'at the Cafe'
and these are beautiful and the woman is fantastic and 'magical' :))
October 5, 2009 at 12:06 pm
are you sure you're not in heaven? because i think you may be in heaven, possibly, maybe.
October 5, 2009 at 12:18 pm
On the left it seems like the "Dolce & Gabanna men's pijama inspired collection" from this year. I like the layering w/ the Converses.Mlle. Garance's coat is just perfect, always beautiful.It goes to prove that personality is far more important when it comes to make fashion worth.
October 5, 2009 at 12:26 pm
How do I achieve that undone messy French chic hair? So amazing.
October 5, 2009 at 12:29 pm
loveeed those pictures!!those troussers looks like this Giovanna skirt shooted by u once

if that's what people watching is like from a parisian cafe', sign me up. these woman look so interesting and chic.garance's coat is darling; very casual the way she's wearing it over a gray sweater.
October 5, 2009 at 12:39 pm
pleeeeease do more of this! merci mille fois!
October 5, 2009 at 12:43 pm
Looovely! Garance is so adorable and I adore her coat. Ooh la la! xo.
October 5, 2009 at 12:51 pm
Awesome leopard scarf!
Great lot of photos, thanks heaps :)
October 5, 2009 at 12:59 pm
i looove her pajama bottoms with the quirky sox and chux- sooo cool :)
October 5, 2009 at 1:00 pm
I want to be apart of your Paris! J'adore Garance and her silly ways. I would kill for a seat at DVN's show…
What wonderful shots! How it brings back cherished memories of being in Paris. Nothing shouts Paris better than the cafe's…I can almost smell them!!!
October 5, 2009 at 1:10 pm
Looks like Le Castiglione right by Goyard. Great photos as usual!
October 5, 2009 at 1:23 pm
Oh, how lovely is Garance?! She is perfect even hamming it up for your camera! Caramel and heathered gray, very classic. J'adore!
October 5, 2009 at 1:28 pm
so weird….but very natural….nice pics!come to my blog….
October 5, 2009 at 1:33 pm
I love these candids!!! Especially the ones of Garance and the woman in the silk pajama-esque pants.
October 5, 2009 at 1:38 pm
the beautiful via class people are getting a bit boring.
October 5, 2009 at 1:42 pm
Gorgeous shots. Thank you.I wish I had beautiful legs like your friend with the grey shoes! Shame about the pyjama pants – I know they're D&G or someone like that – plus spotty socks plus sneakers???!!!
October 5, 2009 at 1:50 pm
what amazing pictures! i love seeing your eye, your presence in the photos … please post more photos like these! You make me feel like I'm there, in Paris.
October 5, 2009 at 2:01 pm
Maybe the french service is bad and the french people rude, sceptical, ironical and not very smiling (that's for sure!). But remember, it's Europe with a heavy and complex history, and not USA which is somekind of nursery in comparison.That makes the people different and interesting, don't you think?;-)
October 5, 2009 at 2:14 pm
I like the documentary-style photography, but cmon Sart, you're beginning to sound like Gossip Girl. This is supposed to be a street fashion blog, not a day in the life of the rich & famous. I'm worried posts like these will ultimately lose your most important readers..
October 5, 2009 at 2:19 pm
For Anon 2:13if anything i am getting back to street style even more. I have passed through the big fashion media (aka Style.com) and have be able to afford to follow my heart and shoot want i want.
I spent the rest of that day on the Left Bank and not at the shows The only way to prove this is to keep coming back and seeing the diversity of places I'm visiting.
Dublin Sao Paolo and soon India and Korea.
October 5, 2009 at 2:24 pm
what a charmed existence you lead!
October 5, 2009 at 2:28 pm
Oh you lucky one! All that going on around you!
And I see Garance got her Max Mara jacket… Now I'm jealous for the both of you!
October 5, 2009 at 2:49 pm
How great it was meeting you and Garance at Colette in Paris last Saturday. What a stylish, kind lovely couple of photographers you are :-) Bonne sejour!
October 5, 2009 at 3:04 pm
I absolutely love this! I would read an entire blog with Left, Front, Right accounts from your daily life. It's a really amazing way to feel perspective. Garance looks fantastic as usual and the photos are just so beautiful. I just bought your book, by the way, and it's already dog-eared! Thank you!
October 5, 2009 at 3:08 pm
Aaah! I wanna be in Paris when fashion week is! (But the comment about the service is true!)
October 5, 2009 at 3:10 pm
garance looks amazing as always-love the image with the woman behind the hedges xx
October 5, 2009 at 3:18 pm
You obviously seem to be in good company – but I like the woman in the PJs reading (some kind of book not a blackberry) and pleading for coffee best! Oh, why can't a café in Paris not be my living-room??
October 5, 2009 at 3:25 pm
Oh no! It's the menu, not a book!
October 5, 2009 at 3:30 pm
Absolutely fantastic. One of your best set of images in a long while, more like these please. Love the atmosphere here.
October 5, 2009 at 3:33 pm
Your post about your father is definitely my # 1, but this one is one of the best ever. I enjoyed this one in particular because of the different moments in one setting. Also, in this one you haven't lost the fashion-touch.
October 5, 2009 at 3:45 pm
Paris is truly one of my favourite cities. So beautiful!
October 5, 2009 at 3:56 pm
Fabulous Garance with Max Mara Coat. I love pijama trousers with dots
October 5, 2009 at 3:57 pm
I need to see the lady in the i-guess-dolce-and-gabbana pants standing!!!
October 5, 2009 at 4:49 pm
Things I love about the woman in the first 3 pictures.
1. the tux jacket2. the hugh hefner pants3. the socks4. the shoes (with this outfit)5. her hair 6. her manicure7. her expression in the second shot8. the fact that she doesn't know she's being photographed9. her radiant beauty.
She is just stunning.
October 5, 2009 at 4:50 pm
Couldn't agree more with 2:13
October 5, 2009 at 4:56 pm
Love, love, love the gray shoes in the third shot. Does anyone know who they are?
October 5, 2009 at 5:08 pm
i adore all of them but the woman's outfit in the last frame is just amazing

October 5, 2009 at 5:54 pm
Who made those unbelievable shoes? Perfection.
October 5, 2009 at 6:26 pm
These photoes are so great, they are casual and full of life.
October 5, 2009 at 6:40 pm
GORGEOUS pics! Am in love with Garance's Maxmara coat!xx
October 5, 2009 at 6:51 pm
I need to be in Paris.
October 5, 2009 at 7:07 pm
Ooh Garance got the coat! hehe! YAY!
ps. Wish i was there!
October 5, 2009 at 8:30 pm
Love the shoes in the 3rd photo. Nice to see that Garance got the jacket. She's been admiring it for quite sometime now. Looks great, Garance
October 5, 2009 at 8:32 pm
isn't anyone going to say how her slacks look like nightwear?
October 5, 2009 at 8:51 pm
Oh to live in a climate in which a sleeveless coat is even a possibility…I'm so interested that you're about to go to Korea. I don't know if this is actually true, but when I lived there many years ago I recall that Korean women were obsessed with the fact that Western women have long legs ("long dal-ee" as I remember). Korean women tend to be a bit shorter and with shorter legs. I was told that this is why they obsessively wear/wore heels, even when hiking! (Seriously, I did see the latter in the mountains in and around Kyong-Ju.) You'll have to let us know.
October 5, 2009 at 8:54 pm
Hi, Really nice post, I love the pictures.. Post some pictures of Vivi behind you at the caffé.. ;)
MaisonChaplin.blogspot.com @ Paris Fashion Week
October 5, 2009 at 9:01 pm
Hey, one sec. Just wanna say a couple of things.
Firstly, the first lady up there looks like someone that's just returned from an extended holiday in Asia where people order like that. I am sorry but if I'm going to beg for food, I expect the staff to beg for me to pay the bill – on their knees. Order with conviction; begging is not European.
Secondly, I like a tuxedo blazer worn casually but dislike her silk slacks worn with sneakers.
Sneakers are for the gym or jogging. A Parisian cafe' deserves more.
October 5, 2009 at 9:10 pm
*gasping* OH MY GOODNESS! Vivienne and that dress, the belt,the scarf..the Max Mara coat..I can't take it!
October 5, 2009 at 9:43 pm
i luv the max mara coat!
October 5, 2009 at 10:38 pm
i, too, love the grey shoes…any ideas where to purchase them?

October 6, 2009 at 2:07 am
OOohhh My Lord, what a life! I adore the first woman. Love, love, love her style! Oohggh..
October 6, 2009 at 3:21 am
Beautiful .. really beautiful I <3
Respects to your eye for capturing these wonderful & graceful moments
October 6, 2009 at 3:22 am
I was having lunch there on the sunday. Lara Stone was no only sitting the table right next to me but also she was eating the famous cheeseburger of the Castglione with a normal coke! Healthy models :) The photos are amazing!
October 6, 2009 at 5:16 am
hey, great idea to the left, centre, right… just like being there. an oasis of loveliness :-)do this more!!

October 6, 2009 at 6:50 am
Oh to be sitting in a Parisian cafe watching the stylish world go by – you have such a way of capturing the right moment.
All these people look soo chic and laid back.
October 6, 2009 at 8:37 am
Her pants are fantastic! I never thought I'd see someone pull off pajama-esque pants so elegantly. The only thing I'm not crazy about, is her manicure. The black nail tips caught me off guard and for a minute I thought she had dirty fingernails!
October 6, 2009 at 8:41 am
With this post you really made me want to move to Paris, having a glass of chablis at the local cafè. Ah. Thanks!
Whenever I leave a negative response it is never printed. (I complained yesterday about the idea Flore being loaded down with fashionistas. I admit Flore was historically full of fashionistas of ideas.)
I think your blog would be more interesting to run the negatives as well as the "oh my God, where can I get those shoooooesss?"
I send enough complimentary ones, after all.(And I am only anon. because it's such a hassle to get a tag.)
October 6, 2009 at 8:58 am
The first lady's name is Uberta and she is a milanese fashion/design consultant.Tha slacks ARE pyjama pants.The grey shoes are Luisa Beccaria.Voilà!
October 6, 2009 at 10:13 am
The girl in the polka dot pants. The fact that you captured not only her wonderful look, but her way of being…simply stunning.
Thank you Scott.

oh goodness… love this "fly on the wall", birdseye view of the fascinating life you live. Thank you for sharing! (Garance looks perfectly lovely in that gorgeous coat!)
October 6, 2009 at 11:13 am
Ohhh…Love these shots! Those grey shoes are amazing. Love the scarf too!
October 6, 2009 at 11:27 am
blue/ polka dots/silky/masculine and the trainers with those socks – so very chic – love it love it
October 6, 2009 at 12:48 pm
the second photo in this series is drop dead brilliant – so evocative. really, really well done.
anyone know where these silk dotted trousers come from?
October 6, 2009 at 12:59 pm
also, to Anon 2.13pm — it's fashion week! give the guy a break! :)
October 6, 2009 at 1:17 pm
Anon: The slacks ARE Dolce & Gabanna. Thank you.
October 6, 2009 at 3:04 pm
J'adore Dior but more so, Garanace.
October 6, 2009 at 5:45 pm
Anon 8:41 AM, just roll with the punches, mate. Probably half the stuff I type never sees the light of Scott's blog.
I understand his position though. He's photographing personal friends at times and he can't necessarily allow raw criticism. It would otherwise seem as though he condones and agrees to the less-than-charitable sentiments.
October 6, 2009 at 8:28 pm
WHATTTT!!!! You didn't take a picture of Yasmin!?!?!?! Don't torture us this way Sart!
October 7, 2009 at 1:26 am
it's great that garance has gone and gotten her coat just like she said she would. the gal definitely knows what she wants and i love her for that.
also the pyjama pants from Dolce & Gabbana, wow, i never thought that one could wear those in public with such grace. maybe it's because i have a recurring nightmare where i come to work with pyjamas :) those nightmares won't be so disturbing anymore and i won't psychoanalyze myself over them as long as i can achieve this look in my subconcious. note to self: look at these pictures before going to bed every night
October 7, 2009 at 4:44 am
Love the freckled face of the pleading woman…GORGEOUS!
October 7, 2009 at 5:44 am
The first women seems to the model Tatiana Patitz (in the second picture)…
October 7, 2009 at 7:55 am
The idea of "the pause café photo shoot" is just genius : please more !
Love the praising lady in D&G silky dotty navy pyjama pants, adore the Garance picture.
Creativity, love & ambition do grow when shared, must be part of the reason why your couple is so magic ! You both emulates each other perfectly.
(and please excuse the lame english)
October 7, 2009 at 11:34 am
The pajama girl in the second image is achingly beautiful.
October 7, 2009 at 2:42 pm
I loved the manicure on first woman…
October 7, 2009 at 4:21 pm
LOVING the belt cinched around her waist! And the fur scarf is divine!
October 7, 2009 at 7:05 pm
I despise the pyjama trend.Ms. Dore looks chic, as usual
October 8, 2009 at 2:06 am
Your work is much better when it avoids the famous/fashion literati. The anonymous are more interesting.
October 8, 2009 at 7:11 am
I looove the greasy hair on Garance, so chic, so now!
October 8, 2009 at 4:39 pm
the girl has a head cold for heaven's sake…
October 8, 2009 at 7:50 pm
how amazing it is to be in your shoes! soon, when i grow up, i hope to get a job similar to yours. :P in the meantime, thanks for sharing your experiences.
and yes, your book is totally inspiring. but some of the images i like weren't included. the sartorialist vol. 2 perhaps?
Hugs from Malaysia,Aiena.
October 9, 2009 at 7:07 am
Service in Madrid is even worse. All my non-spanish friends (and my self, despite being spanish myself and used to that) agree on it. if you don't shout at the waiter/barman, you won't be able to order in most of cafeterias.On the other hand, I had already seen those Pj's on a celebrity and I found them ridiculous. Glad that an anonymous lady surprisingly made them work. She really has style!
October 9, 2009 at 11:19 am
How glamorous I am drunk, adorable moment !!!!!!
October 9, 2009 at 4:29 pm
That polka dot pant (I gess it's part of dolce gabanna's pijama suit) doesn't look bad on her… but I cannot believe that someone spends a great amount of money on this pant, she'll wear it only once or twice.
The Max Mara coat is awesome, as the faux leopard scarf. I NEED TO GET ONE!.
October 10, 2009 at 5:13 pm
I love this post!
March 1, 2012 at 10:50 pm
I love how the first lady has her nails painted red on the tips… ties in with the red on her converse.
May 23, 2014 at 11:52 am
ahhh.. what a life you lead! bravo! one of my favorite posts!
