Where the Sidewalk Ends Fashion Begins for Don Sumada
To anyone who cares a stitch about style, a walk down the sidewalk is like a walk down the runway. At the end of that sidewalk, Shel Silverstein tells us, is a world of pause after the bustle of a city. It’s a place where we go to slow down. In Imagista’s latest editorial with Don Sumada, ‘Where the Sidewalk Ends,’ they combined these two ideas and give us a view at fashion with a loving dose of stillness. We’re offered beauty in the space between the energy of high fashion and the calm of meditation.
Don brings the volume with pieces by Gucci, Miu Miu, Christian Dior, and Sacai in bold colors and exciting textures including a fur jacket that is reminiscent of another Silverstein story: The Lorax. The looks are recontextualized in environments that are stark and gritty, giving us a taste of contrast that bring the playfulness of the fashion upfront, encouraging a bold attitude and courageous point of view.
