After the huge success of his debut publication, Scott Schuman aka The Sartorialist is back with a completely new collection of beautiful images of the men and women who have caught his attention. It’s called “Closer”. And indeed he is. From its origins on the streets of New York, his much- loved blog, remains a vivid and growing source of inspiration for readers everywhere. In “The Sartorialist: Closer”, Scott Schuman looks more deeply and with greater breadth at human style, telling diverse and compelling stories of its expression around the world. These images encompass the varied taste and visual attitude of people as far afield as Seoul, London, Rio de Janeiro, Paris and beyond. And that’s exactly where they will travel you to, without moving. Presenting a rich tapestry of global style and always capturing an inspirational moment, the images in this new book continue to reflect Scott’s unique sensibility and vision.
Published under Penguin Books as a beautifully produced, luxury limited-edition hardback, this oversize volume (512 pages) is marked inside with a hand-stamped number denoting which one of only 2500 copies you hold in your hands. And yes, it is available for pre-order on Amazon, where it is expected to be officially released on August 29.
“Photographer? Journalist? Blogger? No. Just Mr. Schuman, The Sartorialist. The one off in the fashion world. The only point of view through which you can “read” the street style.”
