New York: Sarah Sophie Flicker

I went to New York this week to attend the panel on fashion blog ethics at the “Evolving Influence” conference. Aside from the conference, the only other thing I had time to see was the presentation of Peter Jensen at Milk Studios, where I met Sarah Sophie. Most New York style is, in my humble perspective as an infrequently-visiting foreigner, an illustration in trying too hard to follow the trends along the rules they ostensibly require, resulting in brand-loaded outfits that lack the personal touch. Sarah Sophie is clearly a stand-out. Her personal style is obviously inspired by the 1920s and goes oh so well with her light skin and striking features. Unfortunately, I forgot to ask her where she got that delicate headpiece, but I guess it is vintage.

    good review and she’s such a beautiful woman. i can understand why you picked her! her head accessories are beautiful! nice simple but bold makeup, too. i’m such a fan of red lipstick myself. :)

    Although personally this style doesn’t appeal to me I appreciate the point of individuality vs. just following trends – I often feel the same in London, whereas people in Paris or Berlin seem to lean more towards expressing their individuality (ahh, generalisations, always a tricky thing…)

    I definitely agree with your description of NYC fashion. I was sitting on the train today and a man came on who clearly thought he was uber-stylish. I couldn’t help but think that he looked like a replica of about a thousand other men wearing the same thing. Not to say that we are not allowed to find inspiration in each other, but with New York deeming itself a fashion forward city, it is more along the lines of trends and brand names than the innovation of personal and individualistic style.

    With the glint in her eyes she looks as if time travelling. She can carry it off, therefore it is classic and timeless.
