A Sartorial Thought

The two street style blogs that I read on a daily basis are Facehunter and The Sartorialist, although I make a point of stopping in at Oslostil every so often. I always find it interesting how the personal styles of the different photographers come through in their photos. Case in point - these pictures from the Sartorialist:

In each photo, the featured person is wearing a classically chic outfit with a quirky twist, which is something I appreciate. However, in each picture I notice a person in the background whose outfit I would rather see up close, like the woman in the purple stilleto mary janes in the first one, and the woman with the seafoam pants and little hats in the second. Maybe the Facehunter, who tends to shoot "louder" styles, would have snapped photos of them if he were present. I think it would be totally fascinating for the Facehunter and the Sartorialist to spend a few days taking pictures together, just to see what they both come up with.

Maybe we can unite and convince them. All in favor of this idea say aye! (And possibly post about this thought on your blog to spread the word...Maybe if it gets circulated for a bit, it will actually happen...)

I'm obsessed with the sartorialist too! Love love love.

I think the way the contrasting "backgrounders" complement the main subject is little more than incidental. I think he must wait for that opportune moment.

Such as when the Yves Saint Laurent heeled woman would walk by leaving her stiletto in the frame or when Anna Piaggi would lean over to say somethint to Beppe

Oh, I agree. The Sartorialist is definitely a pro. That's one of the reasons I so enjoy his blog! Still, it is interesting to note who he made the focus of the photo.

Those are the two that I watch, also! I totally agree. I've been in more of a sartorialist mood lately, though. I think you nailed it. Linked you.

I linked you back, Robin. I love your blog and its name.

the first photo is great. she is more emphasized because of somehow blur background.

I just love the purple stilleto of a woman in the first picture, and maybe I'm rude but I even want to see that woman close up than the chic in black dress in the photo, eh.
