the sartorialist does saks.

saturday i attended the satorialist’s event at the saks’ mens store in san francisco with jean-claude colban of charvet. scott schuman (aka the satorialist), dressed in a navy pinstriped suit, had photos from his recent visit to the charvet factory in france, and he asked colban questions relating to shirtmaking and the factory, and also asked questions emailed to him by readers. the event was alot of fun, and it was great to meet him in person. he commented that because saks wasn’t “mac equipped,” he spent most of his first day in town searching for the proper cables for the projector and didn’t get to do as much shooting around the city as he hoped. hopefully he’ll make a return trip to san francisco and do an event at the saks main store or something geared towards women. check his site from today and yesterday for images from the presentation and some of the chic attendees (no shot of me, unfortunately!)

the satorialist has been getting much buzz recently; schuman has used his keen eye for spotting elegant and stylish ensembles on the famous and no-so-famous to become the guy to be photographed by. after a stint covering the mens shows for men.style.com, he was tapped to do the same for the s/s 2007 womens shows in nyc, milan, and paris. he also has a monthly column in gq, and is doing more events across the country. today he’ll be at saks in nyc with designer michael bastian…try to stop by. if you don’t make it to that, he has selected images from shooting around nyc that will be featured in the saks windows until october 23.
