Sarah Rutson, Before Ohne Titel

Sarah Rutson
Sarah Rutson, more than any of the other streetstyle glitterati, has become the dominant influencer of my personal style. The fashion director of Hong Kong luxury emporium Lane Crawford easily flows between hard-edged chic (here) and lady-like glamour (above). It’s her versatility that resonates with me. I find it hard to be boxed into one style, unlike some people who really thrive on creating that one distinctive look they rock everyday. Personal style bloggers are famous for this ability. Maybe it’s because I’m young, or perhaps I have fashion ADD, but I seem to like everything. I like to mix and match elements of different styles depending on how I’m feeling that day.
My day-to-day look of jeans, sneakers, and a leather jacket is laziness more than anything. Coming across this photo of Sarah in my archives last night reminded me how important it is to experiment with different looks.  Life is too short to be the same every day. I’m guilty of falling into sartorial ruts, wearing the same 20% of my closet over and over again. After a hard week last week, I’m looking forward to really experimenting with my wardrobe and channeling my creative energy into something positive. One of the best parts about being a street-style photographer is having the opportunity to photograph people like Sarah and incorporate their ideas into my own.
