On the Street......Nicole, Berlin

I'm in Berlin for the next two days between the men's shows in Milan and Paris. As you can tell I have been jumping around a lot lately. You will soon be seeing lots of images from Pitti, Milan, Berlin, Paris, Venice, and finally back to Sao Paulo. I kind of love mixing up the images from these cities. It was very warm in Florence and very cool here in Berlin which leads to a really great contrast in Summer looks - it's difficult for me to pack clothes for a trip like this!

On the Street......Color Trim, Florence

I could shoot a Navy & White combo at Pitti about a million times. Here, however, I love how the little red scarf detail and the orange trim on the shoes take the look to a whole new level.

Style Profile...Antonio Picardi, London

Antonio Picardi

Best Sartorial advice from your parents?
Do wear a jacket at dinner.

Style icons?
My Grandfather. His style was classic and sartorial, a jacket or suit for every occasion or time of the day. He had a passion for horses, sporty cars and holidays on French Riviera or the Italian and Greek Islands (and he was often taking me with him).

Describe your personal style…
Smart-casual, traditional tailoring.

Favorite designers?
Dries Van Noten, Prada, Nicolas Ghesquiere, Alber Elbaz, Thom Browne, CCP 

Most cherished item?
Supreme skate-decks.

I feel best wearing?
A crisp poplin shirt, trousers with creases and a blazer with surgeon’s cuffs.

The first thing I look at in another Sartorialist's outfit...
Sharpness and comfort. Then the lapel, shoulder, back and cuff.

I never break this fashion rule…
Wear it with a rebel touch.

Never caught wearing?
A tie!

Dress to impress who?
The lady next door.

Shine your own shoes?
I wish, is a skill that only professionals have!

Your next "must have" purchase?
Supreme x Nike SB Bruin

Favorite item of clothing?
At the moment a Dries trench coat and my 30th navy-blue blazer.

How do you balance the suiting and skate wear in your wardrobe?
I like to mix skate wear with my more formal outfits to break-up the lines and add a touch of "me" to my more formal style. It takes me back to my childhood, and all of the youth-movements that were a part of it.

Most stylish city?

When I was high school I wore?
The same style as Umberto I, king of Italy. I had to wear a uniform blazer, trousers with tape down the side of the leg, a fully buttoned shirt and a cape. My hair was cropped in the back and longer in the front.

Pilates, horseback riding, polo and tennis.

Favorite vacation spot?
Where sand is white, sky is blue, water is green and the fish come to you ready to be cooked on a grill. Anywhere in the Mediterranean area, also the little islands in South of Italy.

Favorite neighborhood restaurant?
My kitchen.

Favorite cocktail?
Gin and Tonic, 2 ice cubes and a lime wedge.

Style Profile... Sofia Hedstrom, NYC

Sofia Hedstrom aka Sofia Headstrong

Correspondent Swedish Television, SVT and Svenska Dagbladet.

Best Sartorial advice from your parents?
"Hel och ren," best translated as “wholesome and clean.” Because of them I really take care of my precious fashion pieces and feel guilty when I walk around in a coat with a missing button.

Style icons?
New Yorkers, I love the city and think people here offer more diversity and sense of style than anywhere else in the world. An afternoon on the town beats most fashion magazines when it comes to inspiration.

Describe your personal style…
I think dressing is like acting, I am always trying to dress for an imaginary roll that I make up in the morning… like today I want to be a 70's biker chic from France, or pretend that I am on a cruise in the Stockholm archipelago. I like conceptual dressing, and in my concepts elegance and femininity are always the key words.

Most cherished item?
I really love an old pocket watch from the 1910's that belongs to my family and therefore gives it extra value.

I feel best wearing?
Colors, I don't feel like myself in black.

Is there a particular color?
I am a red loving girl it is the dominant color in my wardrobe. I tend to wear red every day, and if not, my red lipstick shows my never-ending love for this beautiful color. Red represents everything from revolution to love. It is a color that makes people happy and energized - at least that is the effect red has on me - and the reason why I stay faithful.

This photo of you was up in Scott’s solo show at The Danziger Projects, how did it feel to see a photo of yourself up in an exhibit?
To me, the photo sums up fashion week by showing excitement and exhaustion at the same time. I remember the moment when the photo was taken, how much my Miu Miu shoes did hurt after running around the city and how my brain was trying to sum up the shows and how much I was looking forward to that evening. When I saw the photo at the exhibit it made me go back to that special day and it reminded me, and still does, why I keep running around in uncomfortable shoes.

How do you feel about people's responses to the photo, both online and in "real life"?
Both thankful and entertained. A lot of people refer to me as ‘the girl in the red dress,’ and since I think the photo represents me really well I am happy to hear what people have to say!

Do you get recognized by people?
I get recognized a lot by people because of Scott's work. People sometimes come up to me when I am waiting for the L-train and want to talk about my style. One funny thing is when other photographers ask if they can take my picture during fashion week they always refer to Scott’s work.

The first thing I look at in another Sartorialist's outfit…
I always look at the color combinations first, and then the concept and then I make up a story around what the person is wearing.

I always break this fashion rule…
I love unexpected color combinations and always trust my gut feeling when it comes to this, even if it looks weird the first time when I see myself in the mirror.

I never break this fashion rule…
“Wholesome and clean,” I will for sure never be a punk when it comes to my looks.

Favorite designers?
Karl Lagerfeld, for his larger than life fashion personality and for his ability to always be in contact with the latest trends and Dries Van Noten for his color combinations.

Most underrated item in womenswear?
I think the most underrated item is the hair, it is a shame that very few women take advantage of something that is actually free. Ask your grandma for some advice on how to use the pins and you will automatically look glamorous in your old t-shirt.

Flats or heels?
Heels, except when I am running.

Favorite stores?
My vintage store around the corner here in Williamsburg, called Flores Antique. I also love Clube Chocolate in Sao Paulo and Colette in Paris.

Your next "must have" purchase?
I am collecting jewelry and trying to invest in classic pieces. Right now I am looking for the perfect waist length pearl necklace, maybe it is for my Coco Chanel outfit.

I only buy __________ in Europe.
Anything Swedish, I am always trying to support my fellow Swedes and really adore Diana Orving for her draping skills and always like to go into the Svenkt Tenn store in Stockholm for some amazing Josef Frank fabrics.

Favorite item of clothing
Dresses, I am a classic girl after all.

Oh yes, I am a marathon runner and run every day over the Williamsburg bridge to keep me sane. I did the New York Marathon last year and will do it again this year. I also dance and play tennis, all in appropriate outfits.

Favorite neighborhood restaurant?
Hard choice, since I think Williamsburg offers some of the best restaurants in New York. I love Walter Foods on Grand Street, Moto on Broadway is always cozy and my favorite coffee place is Gimme Coffee on Lorimer Street.

Crap, I didn't get the shot that shows more of her bag. It was a great grey/black/white buffalo plaid, and I just love the idea of pairing that with a small floral print in the same color scheme.

On the Street......Fulton St., Brooklyn

One of the tricky parts of shooting a fashion blog is the temptation to always be looking for fashion with a capital 'F.'

Although I do shoot that a lot, especially at the shows, when I am "on the street" I shoot with a slightly different eye.

When I am in a neighborhood I'm not looking for the "next big trend" or a ground-breaking style statement, but just reacting when I see a person and thinking to myself "he/she looks nice."

"Looking nice" is truly underrated; the young lady I posted yesterday looked nice, very nice. Her dress was very simple, but simply wonderful.

The young lady in today's post is dressed very simply, and yet I couldn't help but notice her in the crowded cafe where she was sitting with a friend. She looked so elegant in her simple white summer dress with a colorful floral scarf wrapped high around her shoulders. Not groundbreaking, not earth shattering, but in its own way, a very glamorous way to live a simply nice life.

This feels so "Soho circa 1980" to me. A David Byrne/Basquiat moment.
