Voguish Valentines

Advanced Style’s Ari Cohen shares his love of fashionable couples — wearing their hearts on their stylishly synched sleeves.


  • These daring duos — decked out in a happy harmony of synchronized styles — have stolen our hearts away for Valentine’s Day. Who are these cool couples in dovetail feathers and furs, coordinating colors and paired-up plaids? In his book Advanced Style: Older & Wiser, photographer Ari Seth Cohen has captured these modish lovebirds — who hail from London and Japan to Harlem and Rome — settling into their styles and reflecting each others fashion: body and soul.

    Above, Bill and Eva Korbus-Webb, a sophisticated couple from Harlem, N.Y., invoke a swirl of culture in their theatrical style.
