This is the second time I’ve stayed at Dar Ahlam while visiting Morocco and I hope it’s not my last. The Kasbah itself is wonderful (as you can see) but equally wonderful, is its location in a beautiful palm forest surrounded by local date and olive farmers.
I’m having a lot of fun with Instagram lately.
I enjoy the spontaneity and the speed of the interaction with the audience. As you’ll see, there’s a lot of unique content on the Instagram feed. Shopping, travel, landscapes, I even tried a selfie while in Paris.
I’m constantly amazed at how wonderfully the phone can capture an image now. That landscape shot on the bottom row still amazes me that it was shot with a phone.
Check us out, I think the fashion week coverage will be more fun than ever on both The Sartorialist blog and The Sartorialist Instagram.
My main reason for going to Morocco last December was to get lost in the small markets and shoot the style of everyday people, much like what I did in Bali last July. This gentleman was one of my favorite finds. Three-quarter sleeve jacket (vintage?), blue/yellow pattern sweater with matching bag, all working over track pants. Sorry, but this is more Dries van Noten than the real Dries van Noten.
I would’ve loved to stay in that market another day to see if this gentleman chooses his outfit this carefully everyday or if this was just a happy accident.
P.S. I still can’t get over how cool that jacket is. Do you think he shortened the sleeves himself, or it’s a holdover from the short-sleeve leisure suits of the 1970′s?
