I love the sweater, is it a cardigan? It appears to be a very simple garment, but notice on the left side of the pic how there is a double front half of it. If the post above is right, it would be a Vivienne Westwood, great idea, and it drapes great!!! I like the bag also, although I try my hardest not to carry my bags on my shoulder- I think it makes me look feminine, which I dislike. Great outfit for someone young and slim, although I suspect some of the readers will post that black skinny jeans are a trend from the past. Jorge from W Palm Beach
Wish that I looked that good when I was just a kid, or that I was able to get a hold of those pierre hardy sneakers. When I was 12 I thought that phat farm sneakers were the second coming manifested onto my feet.
It’s all well and good . . .but that’s one expensive sole, pun intended – come on, he’s how old and his entire outfit most likely costs more than my parents would pay as a ransom for me from any would-be kidnappers. I’m only a few years older than him, he kind of makes me glad that i had a childhood without fashion. . . living in the sticks, and not paris
then again, he does look good . . . lol, it’s the fashion-progressive 12 year old! a rare thing
Love the card print on the t-shirt. Pierre Hardy shoes on a 12-year-old? What is the world coming to? Still, if I could’ve convinced my parents to buy me a pair of PH shoes when I was 12 I would have been psyched. Good for him!
I love this blog but this image is horrible. I know kids are supposed to be skinny but he looks positively anorexic and definately not healthy. I am much more concerned about when he is next going to eat, than his Pierre Hardy’s sorry! i just can’t even look at his style when all I see is the dead expression in his eyes. Why sartorialist?
Daring darling fellow, please PLEASE do start sharing your insights and inspirations with your loyal readerhip again! As much as I enjoy the visuals, they’re only enriched by the tales you have to tell. Your observations always serve to enhance the image, and sometimes your thoughts help me re-examine my own opinion of the sartorial moment.
Youthful insouciance…although I wonder if he manages to pick it all out himself or if he has a switched on mama who does it for him. Someone has to pay the credit card people and hunt down those kicks!
The Diane Arbus comments prompted me to go back and look a the (Arbus) image again. I happened on the Proof Sheet. The famous angst-filled shot is the Only one on the sheet where it’s not just a happy kid frolicking in the park and hamming it up! And as someone said earlier: This Paris kid “rocks”
im probably only a few years older than him and im living in a fashion-barren place, the kids my age wear flip flops and berms. got to love the style and attitude i wish i was in paris! i’d probably have fallen for him a few years back! the broody rockstar type. WITH AWESOME SHOES, BTW, so envious of the rich.
This is in fact Charles Guislan,
he has all kinds of interesting garments by a lot of designers. And he’s really into photography to!
You might run into him at any given time at a fashion show in Paris
