The Still Life

Sartorial Decision Making

TSL5

Every morning, when you’re standing in front of your closet trying to figure out who you want to be that day, you have to ask yourself certain questions. Will comfort today mean a pair of sneakers, or will it mean a pair of empowering shoes that make you feel like you can climb any challenges presented in them? Do I want to be approachable or intimidating? Should I let that Jean-Luc Godard movie I watched last night influence my sartorial decisions today? While these questions might seem arbitrary to some, to others the meticulous selection of an accessory can either make or break their entire comfort for the day. In Gestalten’s new book, The Still Life, everything from a polka-dot tie to various sticks of lipstick get represented in the foreground of artistic curations, leaving no doubt that the accessories are works of art as well.
