Saks Fifth Avenue Windows for The Sartorialist



I am humbled by the fantastic windows Saks Fifth Avenue has dedicated to The Sartorialist this week. We had a few general conversations about ideas for the display but I was pleasantly shocked to see what a wonderful job they did.

Thanks Tim, and ,as always, thanks iMac.

They're truly amazing. Yay you.

You have come so far in the past year. You've become a staple for anyone interested in fashion. A sensation (but the good lasting kind). Thanks for everything you do.

Looks brilliant, Scott! Congratulations! Just the right combination of homage to the photos and thematic playfulness.

PS: And the answer to the quiz is?

Very cool!

 

Blogger positive_negative said ... (10:39 AM) : 

I loved it as well, the black frame and type against the glass that "framed" the photograph and the outfit was the device that brought it all together I feel.

Can't wait to see the next one!

Oh my-my!, they've done a great job with your job. But you should be photographing me every day (mmm, I'm happy today!). It's a pity you live soooooo far.

Congratulations!

 

Blogger Susan said ... (1:29 PM) : 

That is a GREAT display...i only wish I could walk by it and see it all in detail. Was the text from your posts printed on the photos or on the windows? Either way, it looks AMAZING!!! Congratulations!!

 

Blogger S. said ... (1:38 PM) : 

Fantastic! You can be quite proud.

That's hot!

When you announced that you were doing windows with Saks I couldn't imagine how they were going to tie you in and make it work. Well, I'm impressed. They look great. And, the mix of photos of real people and the clothes on display really gives the message that,"Yes, you can wear these and heres how". I think it is very encouraging to men to try something new. Great job!

 

Anonymous Pata said ... (2:39 PM) : 

Wow Sart , very proud of you !!!

Those displays are awsome , I imagine how wonderful for you this can be , congrats !!!!

Love you always ,

Pata.

They look great, I hope you are as proud of them as we are of you!
The photo on the bottom is still one of my all time favorites on your site. I'm glad they managed to use it for their display.

A wonderful tribute to you, and it emphasizes that you have become the fashion photo-chronicler of this era. Here's what I want: a coffee-table book, with the page size of W Magazine, containing a fabulous compendium of your work! When, when, when will such a tome be available? xxxooo

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:12 PM) : 

ok, i love the way these windows look, but i have to ask... do the people in the photos know that they're appearing in these displays? if i were one of your street subjects (which would only happen in my dreams, but still) i would be thrilled, but then i don't know if i would want saks building a mannequin out of what i was wearing.

is that totally obnoxious? really, i'm just wonderng the answer to my initial question, sart. either way, the windows look beautiful.

Hi! I'm from Argentina but I was in NY for the past week and got the chance to see the windows in person. What an amazing display!

I check your blog often and was thrilled to witness the stylish city that NY is, wish i could've stayed longer though :( It felt good seeing brilliant outfits just walking out the door.

 

Blogger Gudl said ... (5:56 PM) : 

Congratulations on your success!
As they say in Germany: Weiterhin viel Erfolg!

 

Blogger The-E-Babes said ... (6:30 PM) : 

Just Brilliant! All I can say is WOW. I adore how they complimented your work.

 

Blogger sandman_gr said ... (7:18 PM) : 

Amazing displays! i love their recreation of the outfits you fotographed! It really shows your influence! Bravo for your amazing work!

 

Anonymous Dom said ... (8:18 PM) : 

that is absolutly amazing. im fifteen and i work at a local mens store. and i always look to your photographs as ispirations to look for, for my store keep it up.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:53 PM) : 

This is stunning . . . absolutely amazing. I love it. Has anyone recognized himself in the window yet?

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:08 PM) : 

Art imitating life imitating art. Or is it the other way around? No matter, it's crazy beautiful.

Your family must give you pats on the pats and cheek kisses daily!

mltt.

Did you ever imagine that your way of presenting street style would become so 'the right thing at the right time'? I think people love fashion and love seeing what other people wear but what I appreciate most is the way you present it, high/low journalism, a point of view among many that champions how to make the extraordinary a pleasure.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:19 AM) : 

Amazing, Sart! I'm very happy for you, congratulations!

But just a question, do you need permission from those people to use their picture? They are just random people from the street right?

 

Blogger Julia said ... (2:21 AM) : 

Oh it is BRILLIANT! The biggest congrats! Thanks for posting the pics!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:34 AM) : 

Art imitating life imitating art...

this is so brilliant. selfriges or harvey nicks should be so inspired.....

 

Anonymous Eleonore said ... (5:53 AM) : 

Really, really great! Wish I was there to see it IRL.

You're famous now, but we saw you first :-)

Sorry, too lazy to make a regular identity.

I am at a loss for words. What a fantastic homage to the work of the sartorialist. Congratulations!

 

Blogger Baan Sawan said ... (8:10 AM) : 

Congratulations. What an honor, and a well-deserved one. You've taught me proper cuff length and for that I'm forever grateful.

classique!

 

Blogger tee said ... (11:07 AM) : 

THE FINAL PIC OF BASTIAN YOU TOOK WITH THE CIGARETTE IS BY FAR MY FAVORITE PICTURE YOU HAVE EVER TOOK. A LITTLE OBSESSIVE ON MY PART, BUT I ACTUALLY PRINTED IT AND HAD IT FRAMED LOL .

 

Anonymous jkrnyc said ... (11:16 AM) : 

I saw the pics and then went to see the windows and OMG. Congratulations!!!! Looking at the comments, we're ALL so proud of you! Go, Sart!

Excellent work Scott. A perfect manifestation of your contribution to the collective psyche!

 

Anonymous Schmick said ... (5:20 PM) : 

I'm so excited for you Scott, you truly deserve this. All your time, consistency and attention to detail has really paid off. You inspire me.

Congratulations, they brought me to your blog, Brilliant!

 

Blogger Meredith76 said ... (12:01 PM) : 

Sartorialist - I have to say I really enjoy your blog. It's a tribute to everyday creativity and originality that is true style, that escaped the stylists and designers. Which is why a small part of me hates the idea of the images and individual style that you have captured being manufactured and marketed for the masses - it seemed enough to just appreciate it and be inspired by it, by its essence: its individuality. But I guess that's the hallmark of success of your vision, of other's - imitation. Congratulations.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:05 PM) : 

These windows look so beautiful! Congratulations!

 

Blogger caleaux said ... (5:33 AM) : 

three thoughts really, all contradictory so bear with me...

ONE - as my dear friend meredith76 (bottom of this page) correctly points out, this is a bit of a treason to the spirit of this splendid blog...

TWO - having said that: who wouldn't have done it?!? come on! I, for one, would have. I work in this industry and I have lost my innocence long enough to know that this is just another commercce, albeit a stylish one.

THREE - but then again, looking at those windows once more I realise what's really bothering me: the rigs look so flat compared to the real people! It's not the massification that am against its the vulgarisation!

Ok, I'm done. Ciao Dres.

how lovely! congratulations:)

 

Blogger Seriamente Tony said ... (9:05 PM) : 

great display, i still recall most of the pictures the first time i viewed them here.

 

Blogger crayon said ... (8:31 AM) : 

When I saw these pictures, I felt genuinely happy for you that such a well known fashion institution used your pictures as an inspiration for their photos. Congrats for that.

It seems like just as how you appreciated fashion on the street, so have the fashion houses because of your work.I enjoy how your photos manage to capture fashion in such an honest way. But more importantly it's how you captured the spirit of NYC with those photos. Makes me want to visit it. Keep it up :)

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:03 AM) : 

i particularly fancy the last picture, the dude definitely looks cool :)
