Kick It

01.06.2012 | Blog | BY:

At Twin we believe our olders and betters have a lot to teach us, so we love Ari Seth Coen’s blog Advanced Style, a trove of inspiration brought to us by ladies of a certain age who don’t just colour-block, they colour-pop. And for the past three years Ari has been working alongside filmmaker Lina Plioplyte on a film of his sartorial muses,  women of New York, who despite being over 65 dress with the sort of flair and finesse that shames the young.

While the film is in the can, Ari and Lina have launched a Kickstarter in order to raise funding for the post production and distribution costs. For the moment all we have to content ourselves with is their fabulous trailer, which hints at the gold mine of eccentricity that they have discovered, women who know themselves and dress with a fun abandonment that we can all aspire to. With our help, these ladies can bring it to a whole new audience.

Fashion Seniors

19.03.2012 | Blog , Fashion | BY:

Ari Seth Cohen’s blog, Advanced Style, has always been a standout in the online world thanks to its mantra of “capturing the sartorial savvy of the senior set”.

A fresh departure from the often youth-orientated direction of most street style blogs, Cohen’s documentation of the timelessly stylish 60 years plus crowd has garnered him a cult following, so the news that his photographs are soon to be released in book form is sure to please both young and old.

With over 200 images of eccentric elderlies and interviews by the likes of Dita Von Teese, Advanced Style proves that aging doesn’t mean having to compromise. After all, like Yves Saint Laurent once said: fashions fade, style is eternal.

Advanced Style by Ari Seth Cohen is out May 22, published by powerHouse books.
