Berlin, Germany art director and fashion stylist Saskia Schmidt recently came up with a slew of casual, old-school looks for her series 'Portraits from Coney Island.'

Each look is made to resemble clothing from the heyday of Coney Island. From carny couture to reserved bathers, Saskia Schmidt has a keen eye for retro styles. Still, this is not to say that the clothing is old fashioned; rather, Schmidt cleverly incorporates contemporary accents like clashing colors into the wider retro theme for a style that is at once original and familiar.

Of course, photoshoots simply aren't possible without a photographer. Yves Borgwardt deserves praise for his minimalist approach, which allows the viewer to focus neatly on Schmidt's prim designs.
