On the Scene…Florentine Garden Party

Angelo Bonati, CEO Officine Panerai 

 

I was very honored to be invited to Panerai’s Florence exhibition “Dive into Time”, for the premiere of their LUMINOR DUE watch, the newest and most slimmed down version of their iconic Luminor design.

 

I probably knew less about watches than almost anyone else there, which no doubt led to a bigger reaction from me than anyone else, when I saw the incredible precision and craftsmanship it takes to make a watch like this.

 

However I have to admit, like most of these events, although I’m very curious and interested in the product, I’m usually struck by the people that surround and create great craftsmanship. Mr. Bonati (photo above), is what I would consider your typical ideal of an Italian gentleman (if something like an Italian gentleman could ever be typical). Soft-spoken and gentle until the subject of his passion, in this case watches or apparently boats are brought up, and then you see the classic Italian passion ignite.

 

I learned a lot about high end timepieces that day. I won’t try to make you feel small by spouting out how much I know (this might cover for not being able to pronounce or spell most of the words), but I will let the images below speak to what a charming occasion and what charming people Panerai invited to the event.¬†Also sending a big thanks to everyone involved, hopefully we’ll have the chance to participate in another event soon with this wonderful team and company.

The Sartorialist + Amy Arbus Talk at The Strand, Tomorrow!!!

AmyArbus

 

**UPDATE: Click here for the live streaming link, if you can’t make it to the talk in person!

 

Finally I get a chance to introduce my audience to Amy Arbus, a woman whose book “On the Street”, is made up of a collection of images she took for¬†The Village Voice,¬†from 1980 to 1990. She shot street style before it was called “street style.”

 

Even though her choice of subject and style of photography is very different from mine, I’ve always found it very inspiring and it helps me to understand how I want people to look at my images both today and 10, 20, & 30 years into the future.

 

So please join us at The Strand TOMORROW to hear Amy and myself discuss  fashion, photography, and street style, over the last 30 years.

On the Street…Malasa√Īa, Madrid

A beautiful day in Malasa√Īa, Madrid last week!

 

I love the tats and the dress but it’s the delicacy of her hands that is so alluring. If you know any Spanish ladies with a dance background then you know just how beautifully they’ve learned to move their hands.

On the Street…What They’re Wearing in Barcelona, Spain

After our day in Madrid, Audi invited me to spend a day in Barcelona, looking for people with “untaggable” style and inviting them to the Audi Q2 #untaggablenight launch event (happening tonight in Barcelona).

 

Last nights event in Madrid was memorable to say the least, so I’m excited to see what’s in-store for tonight.

On the Street…What They’re Wearing in Madrid, Spain

Audi invited me to spend a day in Madrid, looking for people that I felt were “untaggable.” People with a special style, that were then invited to the Audi Q2 #untaggablenight launch event (happening tonight in Madrid).¬†I always love shooting in Spain, so for me it was a particularly nice challenge.
