On the Street.......Left Bank, Paris

This "monsieur" is Marc Fumaroli, a french historian, member of the Academie Francaise (and also of the American Academy of Letters and Arts by the way)

Is this John Updike? Left bank suits as the location for writers. I like his cap and scarf and complexion.

Cher Sartorialist,

Great portrait ! I really like the expression of the face and the contrast between the discreet refinement of the 'cachemire'scarf and the gavroche cap, typical popular french style.

Can't wait to be back in Paris {heading there for a week on Saturday}....these shots have got me right in the mood. Thank you!..they are fabulous...

Those sad eyes make a perfect sight. A perfect sight matches anything.

His face looks like there's a story to be told, which is the first thing I notice about the picture actually. Very strong facial features. Or it could be the very fine jacket and scarf that falls just right.

A gorgeous photo lit like a Vermeer portrait. Beautiful.

Love that scarf! So much comes down to the accessories.


Blogger Butch said ... (9:20 AM) : 

Though the guy might not warrant a second look on the street, once "composed," his stylishness is evident.

And here's an example of a nearly lost art: choosing the right hat for one's face, head shape and so on....

Simple, yet majestic! The colour combination is just marvellous to see.

The scarf is the highlight of the outfit, thank god scarves are back with a force!

Timeless, elegant, gracegul, dignified. Brilliant.

I love the stillness of his face, it's not the botox variety.


Blogger Carolina Lange said ... (11:46 AM) : 

He looks fantastic!

Scott, that's a lovely photograph.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:27 PM) : 

I love this man´s look.The scarf, the rides on his face, his seriousness...

I went through a major Franco-film obsession a few years ago. Especially movies from the 1930's. This picture reminds me of that period.

If it was B/W, it could be straight out of a Jean Gabin movie.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:36 PM) : 

What kind of scarf is that?

A wonderful photo!

It is indeed the "immortel" Monsieur Fumaroli - here is a link to a page containing his profile from the Academie Francaise website. The photograph there is from his younger days - he looks very distinguished in his academicien attire.

He looks like he's been thru a lot.


Blogger Pret a Porter P said ... (7:37 PM) : 

what a handsome older gentleman. I like the textures of his hat, scarf, and coat


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:56 PM) : 

meltingly exquisite

Beautiful photograph.

The subtle expressions you catch . . .


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:56 AM) : 

and he is also a professor at the very very elitist "Collège de France". A specialist of 17th century litterature and society. He leaves in the "Carré Rive Gauche", the antique dealers area of St Germain des Près : This just tells how much "Left Bank" he is ! The "rive gauche" style is that : be stylish, rather be an artist or intellectual, always casual, and never dressed up nor too "glamorous" (for that go on the right bank !)
Of course this is a cliché... but it's kind of true.

By the way : this is a GREAT blog !
