Scott Schuman has been documenting street style since 2005. The enormous success of his blog and first book have allowed him to travel the globe even more extensively. In his second book he continues his now well-known modus operandi, covering the “diverse style and visual attitude” of famous fashion figures and people from different walks of life in locations as far afield as Rio de Janeiro, London, Milan, Paris, Japan, Korea and beyond. His goal: “to bring me closer to the true essence of the person while still capturing them as stylish subjects”.
