thesartorialist Does fashion fade?? I think the above image , shot by Amy Arbus in 1984, still looks as fresh today as it did when it first appeared in The Village Voice and yet it's very strong fashion not "classic style". In my event with @amyarbus tomorrow evening at the Strand @strandbookstore we will discuss this concept and the evolution and influence of street photography on contemporary fashion and photography.

thesartorialist Ugh...I thought I'd get through the spring without buying an expensive @prada shirt but that blue Hawaiian shirt is calling my name! I love that it's cut shorter and that the fabric is so fluid ( sorry I'm just using this post to talk myself into buying this!) 3d

thesartorialist Beautiful day in Malasaña, Madrid!
I love the tats and the dress but it's the delicacy of her hands that is so alluring. If you know any Spanish ladies with a dance background then you know just how beautifully they've learned to move their hands. @chiribitas

thesartorialist Another great look in Barcelona that is slightly vintage inspired. I'm feeling a kinda Donna Summers vibe going on here. #untaggable 5d

thesartorialist Vintage is done is a slightly more refined way in Spain than what I typically see in New York. In Spain, vintage is almost looked at like new clothes with a different style than what's currently in stores whereas in NYC vintage is more about associating with a mind-set and a concept of an alternative lifestyle. #untaggable @arnauobiols 5d

thesartorialist Finally I get a chance to introduce my audience to Amy Arbus @amyarbus a woman who's book "On the Street", is made up of a collection of images she took for The Village Voice, from 1980 to 1990. She shot street style before it was called "street style". Even though her choice of subject and style of photography is very different from mine, I've always found it very inspiring and it helps me to understand how I want people to look at my images both today and 10, 20, & 30 years in the future.

So please join us at The Strand to hear Amy and myself discuss  fashion photography and street style over the last 30 years.

thesartorialist LOVE the old painted-tile storefronts of Madrid! I hate to sound like an old man but can't graffitist have a little respect for other people's art? 6d
  •   nes_des_ Me encantan esas firmas y el contraste. Me encantaria tenerlas en eel frente de mi casa !! Lovely!!! I d like to paint with them!! 2d
  •   fbaradit @nes_des_ 1° no logro entender qué expresas con un tag ilegible. tu qué entiendes con eso? , y 2º La comparación con la orina del perro me parece adecuada, porque he visto a chicos "expresándose", y la acción es muy parecida a la de un perro marcando su territorio: van caminando y de pronto, sin micha mayor reflexión, marcan alguna pared con su firma, y siguen caminando y, un poco más allá, hacen otra marca. 2d
  •   nes_des_ @fbaradit intenté desarrollar mis ideas pero por algo del contenido instagram frenó la publicación. Por lo general, algunos jóvenes-entiendo- necesitan de estas formas de expresion no por ego como ud dice sino todo lo contrario. Porque les ha faltado un espacio de escucha contención y amor. Se han sentido repudiados, expulsados, maeginalizados por la sociedad, sus historias y/o sus familias 2d
  •   fbaradit @nes_des_ de acuerdo. Entonces creo que hay que encauzarlos y darles espacios, para que se expresen sin necesidad de producir daño en bienes. 2d

thesartorialist I rarely ever shoot people with my phone but yesterday morning in Florence while I was running I saw this gentleman and just had to try! I think he was genuinely tickled by the Sight of an American tourist decked out in Nike running gear and telling him he was "Molto Elegante" and taking a photo of him! (I hope to shoot him again with my real camera)
Thanks @panerai for putting me In Florence to see this elegant man! Any of my Florence friends recognize him? (And if so why didn't you tell me about him before 😬) #GoodThingsHappenWhenYouRun

thesartorialist Would you believe it if I told you that @panerai let me make a watch with my own two long-fingered hands and that I was so excited that I held the phone in my mouth and filmed myself making the watch? Ok,ok, maybe those aren't my hands but it was pretty incredible watching the craftsman create these little masterpieces of precision. #paneraidiveintotime 1w
