BLOGGER EXTRAORDINAIRE

A few years ago I was thrilled to be featured in Christie’s magazine – they heaped some pretty tremendous accolades on me, calling me “…interior designer, style icon, and blogger extraordinaire….” In the ensuing years I’ve tried to live up to these words!

As a blogger, trying to be informative, insightful and perhaps even provocative over an extended period time takes no small effort – and arranging photos as well to coincide with my narrative can really be a challenge. I think we’ve all become so used to consuming masses of online content, that at times it’s hard to remember that there are people actually making well-considered original material – not to mention the fact that there is often a whole support team behind the scenes making things run relatively smoothly! I myself rely on a quiver of fabulous photographer friends to help me in my efforts, but sadly many of them have moved out of the city recently, making the work we do at WIJW quite a bit more constricting.

Thankfully there are a few ultra-talented artists left here like the brilliant Boris Glamocanin to carry the torch! We just want to say how grateful we are to him and all of the others who’ve contributed so much, and we’d like to remind our lovely readership to occasionally leave a nice comment wherever the winds of the net may take you. And as always we want to thank you for taking the time to check in with us here at WIJW!

For this fab Glamocanin shoot, I’m sporting Tom Ford indigo and ivory silk glen plaid jacket, white cotton shirt and turquoise silk pants, Max Verre denim tasseled loafers, Charvet turquoise silk pocket square, vintage Rolex, Tom Ford “Marco” sunglasses, a bit of Tom Ford Bronzing Gel, and a misting of Tom Ford Neroli Portofino.

    Hello James!

    Congratulations to you and to your most recent photographer Boris Glamocanin!

    While the upper photograph is highly impressive, I found the lower one to be truly extraordinary—more of a contemporary fine arts photograph, where the boundaries between architecture and nature dissipate, where the conditions of figure, ground, transparency and reflection render the image quite enigmatic and hence poetic. This photograph submits the verbal definitions of textile and landscape into brilliant elusiveness.

    On a more lighthearted note, I couldn’t help but think of this image’s association with such swim trunks as Orlebar Brown and Vilebrequin, whereby photographic imagery has become a contemporary aesthetic device of design.

    I wouldn’t be surprised to come across this image in a fine arts gallery or museum in the near future. Or perhaps at an upcoming Christie’s or Sotheby’s auction.

    All the best to your upcoming projects with Boris Glamocanin! I am certain that image after image featured on your site will continue heightening the ties among photography, fashion, architecture, design and art. And contemporaneity within aesthetic permanence.

    James, Don’t ever leave us! You are our standard bearer! Quite by accident a few years back, I stumbled onto “What is James Wearing” and now it is a staple of my online information and inspiration. The model ain’t bad, either! Thanks, and please don’t every leave us without your inspiration!
