| October 11, 2012 | Homepage Latest The Latest

Scott Schuman, creator of the popular blog, will be in Philadelphia on October 13 (5-7 PM) to sign his new book The Sartorialist: Closer at The Barnes Foundation. Despite documenting street style and fashion shows around the world, this will be Schuman’s first visit to Philly.

The Sartorialist: Closer is Schuman’s second book, following his debut The Sartorialist in 2009. This new tome features over 500 pages of photographs taken everywhere from New York to Milan, showcasing stylish people Schuman has come across in his travels. A special "Bespoke" edition, which includes 40 exclusive photos, a slipcover, sewn pages, and a hand-stamped individual number, is also available.

Since leaving his position in fashion sales and starting, Schuman’s fame in the style world has skyrocketed. He has shot ad campaigns for brands such as Burberry—and even appeared in them for The Gap and Verizon. Schuman's work now resides in permanent collections at multiple museums and he has contributed to fashion publications like Don’t miss this chance to meet Schuman and his friend and fellow photographer Garance Dore. 2025 Benjamin Franklin Pkwy., West Terrace.
