The Sartorialist for Paris Vogue




One of the things I like about the blog format is the sense of “real time” that it can convey on developing stories.

To that end, remember back in early January when I did a post about a project I was shooting for Paris Vogue?

I shot the story all though fashion week(month) in NYC, Milan and Paris.

The issue is just now hitting the stands and I couldn’t be more happy with the results.

I ended up getting the cover(!) of this model supplement and a very large number of shots inside.

As you can imagine this is a big day for me.

ps thanks to everyone that turned out for the Met panel discussion yesterday!

pss I am in NYC for the next three weeks so get ready for some (hopefully great) New York Area street style shots. I might end up in Princeton and Yale in the next two days (hint)

    *please* come to Princeton. we may not have a design major, but there is a lot of great style and beautiful photo opportunities. I’m an undergrad and a huge fan of your blog, as are many of my friends. we would love to have you here.

    I recently read here someone complaining that we have been commenting more on you as a photographer than on style…… Well, guess what! There is a very good reason for that! You are an amazing photographer and even though you always capture great looks, it’s your whole work as a photographer that is reaching another level!

    By coincidence, I just came home with this month’s Vogue Paris. And Oh My God! Your portraits are exquisite! Congratulations, you are the best at what you do! Now doubt about it!

    And, by the way, Carine is a genius!

    Wake up, Anna!

    PS: I am still waiting for your book. I can just picture it, opening night chez Colette!

    Congratulations on the Vogue Paris cover! I am definitelly picking up an issue now. I was at the panel discussion yesterday and loved hearing you speak. I feel it would have been a bit dry without you there. Thank you for bringing this offten pretentious and seemingly out of reach world of fashion not to the masses, but globally to individuals who see themselves as a canvas.

    Thank you for being a part of that panel discussion…it was great and really interesting. My only issue with the entire event is the need people have to complicate their questions. I feel like they were all part of a secret competition to see who can use the most 15 syllable words in one sentence lol.

    But seriously,
    Thank you.

    It will be interesting to see what you come across at Yale. There are a few very well dressed people, but they’re not often on Cross Campus in the middle of the day.

    This also means that perhaps I should do laundry.

    Congratulations! You are on fire! Great to see and hear you speak yesterday at the Met. The COVER of Vogue – does it get better? (It will!) Sweet moment.
    I was so happy yesterday that you described the genesis of the Sartorialist. It is affirming and encouraging to see the power of that leap of faith. You were and are generous to share what you see and are jazzed about for free. That you kept at it without knowing where and how it would lead you – and are now getting such plum projects is fantastic. You invented a gig for yourself. Takes a lot of work and trust of the little interior voice to do that. And support – a cheer for your wife and kids!
    I hope it inspires others to dig into the things that intrigue them. Way to go, Scott!

    First I would like to say that I love the sartorialist blog…

    Regarding the Lara Stone insert of the Vogue series….she is a beautiful women with an amazing outfit…just the style I love….and then the look is ruined by the fact she is smoking a cigarette.

    I work in health care and see the emotional and physical destruction it causes on a daily basis. I recognize the millions of health care dollars that are spent treating diseases directly caused or dramatically worsened by smoking.

    I feel that smoking should not be glorified and portrayed as anything positive, which this image attempts.

    If people smoked less…maybe some of that cash could be spent of something much more productive…say wonderful independent fashion designers? Just a thougt.

This might not be the best week given that almost half of the student body has a 30 page jr paper or 120 page senior thesis due next week (we’re looking a bit haggard now), but there are still some gems hidden across campus. I’d recommend the Woodrow Wilson fountain and small world cafe…

    As a student from Princeton, I’d love to see what you’ll be able to capture on campus. Try getting a shot of Prof Cornell West – he’s a campus fashion icon. Generally a good time to come would be during houseparties (early may), when you’ll see preppiness in its true form.

    I went to get the April Vogue Paris and it did not come with the model supplement(I checked a few places in Boston). Has any one else had this problem?

    Congrats, Sart! I bought Paris Vogue, April issue, with Kate Moss on the cover and there was no supplement included. Was this issue polybagged with a supplement? If so, Borders in Columbus Circle screwed up :(
