Street-style photographer Tommy Ton describes a favourite shot.
“THE VIBRANCY OF THE YVES KLEIN BLUE AMONGST ALL THOSE DAPPER GENTLEMEN AT FLORENCE’S
biannual men’s tradeshow Pitti Uomo speaks volumes. It takes a bold statement to stand out in such a well-dressed group of men. I love how Sarah, who’s known for always wearing a bespoke suit, has found a way to wear her fashion week uniform but in a refreshing, effortless way. From her mirrored aviators to her signature red lip, it’s the perfect balance between casual and elegant, and masculine and feminine. Summer is generally a time for dresses, but I feel a suit can be just as feminine and, in many ways, more empowering. You can easily wear a suit from day to night, either by keeping the same shoes or accessorizing with eye-catching extras. Sarah has playfully accessorized her look with jewellery. The stacked bracelets are very much a ‘Pitti’ style and are reminiscent of the menswear peacocks who dress up during fashion week. She’s also brought a touch of whimsy by adding pins on her lapels and that little knot on the striped Breton, which reveals just the right amount of skin. She’s put her stamp on a classic Florentine menswear staple.”
