Vogue Paris mimics The Sartorialist

By  |  3 Comments

This is probably what the folks at TIME Magazine were thinking when they decided to include Scott Schuman, the man behind the wildly popular street style blog The Sartorialist, in the list of 100 Top Design Influencers.

The industry wasn’t quite sure how this happened, but TIME might have foreseen that Vogue Paris would pay tribute to The Sartorialist’s signature photography style in a fashion editorial for their June/July 2011 issue. Perhaps we’ve been checking out the blog so much that we associate any form of photography that involves streets and clothes with Scott Schuman.

The styling, in fashion magazine standards, is not quite up to par, but given the fact that this is presumably a satire of Schuman’s fascination with double-breasted coats, polka dots and homeless person scarves, we’d say it’s a spot-on imitation of the usual photos found on The Sartorialist.

Sasha Pivovarova stars in this 80s-feel downtown Madonna editorial styled by Joe McKenna-Sasha and shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin.

    i like it. the “bad styling” really works for the concept as it were done to make it appear realistic and not too editorial. scott could actually steal these shots and post it on his blog and nobody will even notice its from a spread.:)

      Exactly. If it had been any other fashion spread the styling would have taken a lot of criticism, but since it’s trying to mimic real life, we think it’s as realistic as it could get – at least in relation to the kind of crazy outfits featured on The Sartorialist.

    Sasha Pivovarova is such a beauty.. She looks great in everything even if the photo requires her not to be “stunningly beautiful”.
