Tommy Ton to cease Jak & Jil blog?

"2005 - 2014"


A pioneering voice in street style photography, Tommy Ton has released a simplistic Instagram post suggesting that his signature blog 'Jak & Jil' will close this year

"Tommy is special because he is an incredible photographer, plus he has a knowledge about fashion that others don't have. The first time I met him he knew the vintage skirt I was wearing was Rochas from the Olivier Theyskens collection. He's so young, how does he know that? I understood that he was as obsessed with fashion as me." Said fashion icon Anna Dello Russo of the 30-year-old photographer, Tommy Ton, a little over five years ago when he held the title of king when it came to capturing Fashion Week street style.

The photographer posted the above accompanied by a simple comment that read '2005 - 2014'


Fast-forward to 2014 and that career has soared, with a host of photographers following in his footsteps and Ton working regularly for the likes of Vogue and Style.com... Perhaps rendering his online documentation obsolete? It would seem that way, since a post to his Instagram account stated the simple Jak & Jil logo with the comment '2005 - 2014' came to light a matter of hours ago. While a formal announcement is yet to be made, we assume that the talented photographer is to move on to other projects by the end of this year. 

Take a look through some of the stylistically striking work that made him famous, now:
