Scott Schuman Dishes To Harper’s Bazaar About Style And Kanye West

scott schuman talks to harpers bazaar

If anyone knows a thing or two about fashion, it’s Scott Schuman. The blogger/photographer behind the street style website, ‘The Sartorialist,’ is on the verge of releasing his second book. Harper’s Bazaar got the chance to chat with Scott about style, photography and his relationship with Kanye West.

Check out a few tidbits from the interview below!

On the future of street style photography:

SS: “I think the thing that’s tricky and why it hasn’t taken the next big step forward is because photographers now are going to the shows and they’re trying to shoot these “star editors.” You know when I started people knew who the editors in chief were and a few others, but nobody knew Giovanna Battaglia or Anna Dello Russo or those people. I was really shooting what I was responding to. And Giovanna ended up becoming somebody. And Anna Dello Russo ended up becoming somebody. I think that the part that’s holding people back now is that they basically only go to the shows. There’s very few of these street blogs that go back to their city, wherever that is, and shoot. People just get very obsessed with getting a picture of those known names, as opposed to really speaking from the heart and shooting from the heart. Having the bravery to shoot a “third row” person or not going to the shows and shooting somewhere else. For street style to be successful, photographers need to shoot in a more unique way to them.”

On what catches his eye style-wise:

SS: “I guess the way I think about it is, I’ve been in the fashion business for a long time and it’s so intuitive, it’s so second nature that I don’t really think about that when I’m shooting. When I see something in person that I want to shoot I never ask ‘is that in style, is that out of style?’ I think the proof is that people talk about how the internet has sped up fashion and that fashion is moving faster, and yet my first book keeps selling and a lot of those pictures are 5 and 6 years old.”

On Kanye West and the middle class:

SS: “You look at someone like me or Kanye [West] who were just a bunch of middle class kids who used style — it’s one of the things that moves you through society, moves you up through society. It’s like what you’re seeing with Moscow, and the same with what you’re going to be seeing with China, where they really didn’t have much of a middle class before.”

On how his brand collides with Kanye:

SS: “It’s a very natural, real relationship. I think I relate to him in the way that we’re two kids coming from where we came from and who looked at fashion in a particular way — as a way of expressing themselves. It’s as simple as that. People just happen to know who Kanye is but there are lot of others [who I relate to in a similar way].”

Scott’s book, ‘Closer,’ hits stores on Aug. 29.

Kim Kardashian And Kanye West Grab Some FroYo In Hawaii

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are still going strong and are spending some vacation time in Hawaii.  The couple hit up a local frozen yogurt shop for a sweet treat before heading back to their car.  Earlier this week the couple debuted their promo for the upcoming MTV Music Awards.  Looks like Kimye isn’t going anywhere any time soon! Who knew that these two would last so long?

Kim is also rumoured to be getting ready to talk babies with Kanye too!  She is rumoured to be going off her birth control pill so that she can get pregnant.  Well I guess if you know, you know, right?!  I have a hard time picturing these two settling down long enough to have a baby, they seem to be quite the jet setting couple.

Kim Kardashian Is Quitting Her Birth Control So She Can Get Pregnant

As we all know, the Kardashian sisters are a serious bunch when it comes to their family and it looks like Kim Kardashian is ready to take her relationship with Kanye West to the next level as sources close to the reality television star say she is ready to get pregnant. In fact, rumor has it that she’s already stopped using birth control and is preparing her body for a pregnancy.

Here’s what we’re reading from In Touch Magazine:

“Kim is ready to have babies and talks about it all the time,” reveals a Kardashian insider to In Touch. And since she’s been on the pill for around 15 years, reports another source, Kim, 31, is taking “the necessary measures” to make it easier to conceive. 

And Kanye, 35, is not being shy about how he feels about Kim getting pregnant either! Hitting Manhattan hotspot PHD with Leonardo DiCaprio on August 3, Kanye “didn’t even look at girls,” says an eyewitness to In Touch. Instead, he jumped in the DJ booth and debuted three new songs … including one titled “Perfect Bitch” that mentions his “future wife,” Kim, and proclaims he wants her to have his babies.

So if Kimmy Cakes is only getting off of birth control now, does this mean she was never prepared to have babies with her ex-husband, Kris Humphries? Hmm…

First Look: Kim Kardashian And Kanye West In New Promo For MTV Music Awards

Kimye what? It looks like we are going to be seeing a lot of Kanye West and a lot of Kim Kardashian in the next month as MTV has just released a new promo for the MTV Music Awards, starring comedian Kevin Hart. I know there are a lot of K’s there, right?

Check out the video below and tell us, do you still watch the awards ceremony? I know it’s supposed to be all fun and games and it’s not as serious as the other awards shows, but for some reason I don’t think it has the same appeal as it did years back when Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera would perform in the show. Maybe I’m just getting older! LOL. What do you guys think?
