We just received Closer, Scott Schuman's new Sartorialist book! This second volume features selected photos from the world's most acclaimed street style blog, as well as around 40 exclusive images - favourites of the past year that Scott kept on the side for the book!
In this follow-up to 2009's bestseller, Schuman gets closer to the essence of the perfect outfit and travels more than ever to document stylish outfits all over the world. The book is available with two different covers. You can read more about the book and about Schuman in this interview with Harper's Bazaar.
On the same table here at the store, you'll find the newly-released Advanced Style, which has to appeal to you if you're into fearless and inspiring style (you will want to grow up to be these ladies). Based on the street style blog ran by Ari Seth Cohen, the book comes with a foreword by store-favorite Maira Kalman.
If you wanna know more about the project and the fabulous women it portrays, Tavi Gevinson (whose Rookie Yearbook D+Q just put out, and we're obsesseddd with it) blogged about it in a post entitled "a thing to look at whenever you are bummed about the world." Encapsulating the appeal and the importance of the blog in a handful of well-chosen words, she writes: "Wrinkles and scars and imperfections are signs of life, not of being young and naive and sexy and nonthreatening." Swoon!
