Sewn from the Soul March 3, 2010Posted by SCAD Fashion Department in : Careers, Industry News, Inspiration, Organizations and Associations, Trends , trackback
Those of you who are taking CAD classes next quarter or are looking for styling and editorial ideas might appreciate the recent online editorial created by the guys behind the blog “Street Etiquette.”
Their concept was to commemorate Black History Month and the style legacy of men like Miles Davis, Gordon Parks, and Sammy Davis Jr. Blending history, poetry, and keen styling, they created a feature that was so compelling that GQ Magazine requested the bloggers to put together a more comprehensive list of unsung black style pioneers. The original editorial presents a great way to combine a love of history with a very current style sensibility.
Here is the original editorial which includes the poem “Sewn from the Soul” by a Brooklyn resident who writes “We were sewn from the soul and the streets were our seamstress/Effortlessly sewing the seam to our sartorial dreams . . . “
I, personally, love the way these guys combine well chosen pieces and a love for American fashion staples, with an eye for sharp street style. Although the blog isn’t updated as regularly as I’d like, it’s still a great place to go for an elegant take on urban edge.
