Advanced Style - which is available to buy now - is a collection of street-style photographs and interviews of classy, chic and inspiring senior citizens spotted out and about in New York. The book is the brainchild of Ari Seth Cohen, who launched his blog of the same name in 2009, shortly after he first arrived in the city.
Devoted 'to capturing the sartorial savvy of the senior set', 30-year-old Cohen was initially inspired by his own grandmother's personal style. He tells Stylecaster: 'I was best friends with my grandmother growing up, and was always inspired by her energy and wisdom. I wanted to show that creativity, style, and vitality advance with age, and hopefully help change people’s ideas about getting older.'
Earning such high-profile fans as Marc Jacobs and Dita Von Teese, who has also contributed to the book, Cohen has also included 'never-before-seen photography' of subjects from around the world (including the tome's cover star, who is from our very own London!)
Cohen will be signing copies of the book in the Mary Shop on Thursday 7th June 2012, at 2pm in House of Fraser, Oxford Street and on Saturday 9th June, at 2pm in House of Fraser, Westfield London
