Sart “does” Toronto

Unless you’ve been living under a rock this past week, you know that a fashion blogging rock star was in town. Scott Schuman, better known as The Sartorialist, was doing the meet and greet thing at Holt’s and the Drake, followed by a shoot for Burberry the following day.

I avoided the whole thing, preferring a future fateful fashion meeting in the Tuileries, over Toronto. I simply enjoyed watching/listening from the sidelines this time around.

The most entertaining piece of press had to be Amy Verner’s interview with Sart: Sex and the Sartorialist. It’s honest, direct and funny as hell. Here’s an excerpt:

AV: What’s your weakness when it comes to shooting people?
SS: I have a weakness for surprises. I want to see something I haven’t seen. I’m totally ambiguous sexually when it comes to my work. I shoot what I’m attracted to.

AV: Can you tell when people are trying too hard?
SS: Uh, yeah.

Scott’s book is being released on August 18. Hurry and pre-order if you want the limited edition hard cover. They are bound (no pun intended – oh wait – maybe it was) to sell out. Paperback also available same date for a fraction of the price.

    That article in the Globe and Mail definitely has me LMAF. Interesting take on the usually dapper Sartorialist. I guess sex sells!
