I've noticed a lot of abstraction in the most recent posts. Detail shots like this beautiful photo, as well as head-and-shoulders portraits, and even the few black and white photos; all are deviations from the signature Sartorialist photo. Even the recent vintage photo contest is a deviation from the usual format.
Personally, I appreciate experimentation, and I feel your strongest voice has always been visual- Your photos don't need supplementary text or 'prose' about your opinion on the look, because you illustrate it in the photos themselves. Let your photography speak for itself.
at a quick glance there seem to be too much going on, but somehow it works – and beautifully at that. The bag is fantastic! I love seeing a structured bag after all the soft sack-like huge things that have been so popular for so long.
I have a briefcase of the same color and print as this Celine bag, and I've had it for years, not knowing where I can possibly find a suitable replacement, and then you post this, and voila! my weekend is surely made!
Love, love, love this bag, and will be hopeful to find something akin to my own through Celine.
the bag is beautiful, of course, but it just resembles the real anatomy of the snake it was made from and it makes me a little squeamish – and this is coming from someone who has three python bags (of course, though, not celine).
