The women are exquisite (apart from young and very beautiful).
Some questions: $8,000 for a coat? 300 pairs of shoes? I admire the variety of people you get on your blog, but was Style.Com interested in a specific kind of dresser, or was it the place you were? It’s a little intimidating to hear the message that to be chic you have to have that much money…
Also: always overdressed than underdressed? Do you agree? I sort of thought the other way around was preferable. But I’m male–is it different for women?
I’ve just had a look at your video. Wow! Congratulations! Maybe you are going to visit Vienna (Austria/Europe) in the future? We don’t have those sophisticated dressed people, but Austria has great Designers too (Helmut Lang, Carol Christian Poell). Greetings from Vienna and Congratulation again, Andrea
That was nice. But (I hate complaining about this) those were very young, very rich women. I really would like to see some “older” women (over 40? 35?) who manage to make dressing an art, and even manage to look cute and sexy, without spending $8,000 on a coat. I know they are out there.
LOVE THE VIDEO FEATURE, I can see the value for the editorial mission in cultural terms. Your work is really warm, light hearted and optimistic, that is why I’m a devotee.
BUT! the women showcased represent one segment of the fashion market. The last woman in the segment explained her fashion sense as a total trend consumer (labels). In my opinion -as a creative- to limit your self to the consumerist side of the equation is to take money as THE challenge (boring).
I guess the blog offers your editorial mission and in that sense a wider sense of diversity.
as a result i am booking a ticket and moving to new york as we speak ;-)
your photographs are absolutely fantastic and i religiously read your blog, but i actually really enjoyed the video because i could get a better idea of the clothes in that medium, and also their personal style is so much more apparent when you can see their mannerisms, posture, hear them speak and know a little about them etc
fantastic work sart! of course we all love the photos but i hope there will be more video in the future too!
thanks and congratulations! your success is well deserved :)
you know, I have to say, I liked the video and all, but I expected something more…your still photos show so many different faces of beauty and fashion, which is what I have come to love about this site…but in the video I just saw one face: a young, rich fashion buyer/director/label sycophant…and frankly that face can be a bit boring when there is so much fashion creativity happening in new york (insert NY marathon photos here).
lOOOve it, with capital O’s! So cool to see your people in motion.
Speaking of makeup…I loved that your three interviewees were a. sporting amazing outfits and b. complementing their fashion with very natural hair and fresh faces. To me, that’s the way to wear couture!
Eemm, I have a different take on the money comments: OK, so I’m not in the dropping-thousands-on-a-piece realm yet…but I don’t always assume someone who does is rich. Rather, people in the fashion biz might tend to invest more as they know quality and what works for them, and do the CPW calc (cost per wear = item cost / # of times worn). Maybe? Anyway, it’s refreshing to approach style and clothing in terms of substance instead of trend.
Wonderful! I love it. I live in Houston, and I have been dying to get to New York for the last eight years. I will have vicariously live through your ivideo. I love your website. Congrats and keep it up!
is it possible for people who don’t have thousands of dollars to spend on clothes, shoes, and bags, to be celebrated? good vid, though, really. but a bit disenchanting for people who don’t have that wealth and love fashion jut a much. much love sart.
