Description

The exquisitely designed, limited edition, numbered hardcover of the third Sartorialist book, presented with a signed postcard.
In this beautifully packaged and exclusive limited edition perfect for collectors and style devotees Schuman pays homage to the innate style found on sidewalks and streets, as well as off the beaten path.From its start ten years ago as a New York street-style blog, The Sartorialist has become an essential part of the worldwide conversation on fashion and its place in everyday life. With stunning images of men and women who caught Scott s eye in traditional fashion locales like New York, London, and Milan, as well as newer ones including Peru, India, Dubai, and South Africa, TheSartorialist: X celebrates the many cultures of pattern and color found across the world, making it a thrilling source of photographic inspiration.
Scott s quest on the sidewalks of the world is like a gold miner sifting gravel for the rare pebbles of gold. Global fashion takes on new meaning through his work: as his subjects confirm, compelling personal style knows no boundaries! Harold Koda, Curator in Charge, The Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art
Scott doesn t just take pictures, he captures emotion. He is not just a photographer. He s a historian marking the feeling of this generation one photo at a time. Kanye West"
