Catwalk vs The Street

June 20, 2010 § Leave a comment

My daily dose of fashion inspiration comes, as it does for many thousands, from The Sartorialist.

Each morning, I’m greeted with an interestingly dressed individual, able to capture a timeless style through an eclectic, or perfectly matched, ensemble of clothes and accessories.

Today, however, the blog featured some of the new collections on the catwalks of Milan. This is Dolce & Gabbana.

It’s utterly gorgeous of course, (as is he), but it’s also something so impossible for mere humans to re-create, that it ultimately depresses me.

Compare this to Lorenzo from Milan, featured on the Stil in Berlin blog, and my response changes immediately. The image captures a knowing playfulness, the model’s character and something deeper than aesthetic idealism. I want to meet this person, rather than just gaze at the beauty of the image.

As the saying goes – comparison is the death of happiness.
