Live as style photographer Bill Cunningham did with these finds
[Click image to enlarge]
Sitting atop his bike, sporting his signature French workman’s jacket and with his camera in-hand, Bill Cunningham was always a welcome fixture on the fashion scene. The late style photographer, known best for producing The New York Time’s weekly “On The Street” section, has been memorialized with several documentaries and books, including a talk by William Norwich on Cunningham’s book, Fashion Climbing. But what better homage is there than to live as Bill did?
Here, we’ve hunted down the exact bike and film camera preferred by Cunningham himself, as well as a play on his signature blue shirt, although the original — a $20 relic from a French hardware store — has since been discontinued.
