This is beautiful.Does anyone know where her jacket is from??
April 10, 2008 at 8:43 am
I think she contradicts the backdrop beautifully.
April 10, 2008 at 8:46 am
I adore the fit of the jeans.
April 10, 2008 at 8:47 am
I like her pose!
April 10, 2008 at 8:54 am
That jacket is beautiful and is perfectly accentuated by all the black.
April 10, 2008 at 9:08 am
Great jacket! Love the square cut. Did you make her cross her legs like that to pick up the lines in the background?

what is LES?

I love Hanne’s look.
April 10, 2008 at 9:35 am
will u go to japan ??
somehow this girl’s style is similar to japanese
Hmm I like this blazer with big scarf look. It reminds me of the shot you had in Paris with an editor-type wearing something that looked like a rowing club blazer with a fabulous patterned scarf. I work in a pretty conservative office but yet I reckon I could add this sort of look to my vocabulary. Scarf shop here I come!
April 10, 2008 at 9:58 am
Fabulous jacket, the tailoring but also the pale salmon color of it. And what a perfect, beautiful combo with the ultramarine scarf. I love how the upper part of the outfit is contrasted by the worn sneakers. And yet by the backpack! Cool :)
April 10, 2008 at 10:06 am
Nice. I actually like the shoes, which to me say “Yeah, I like looking cute, but no way am I going to kill my feet to do so.” I love her palette.
April 10, 2008 at 10:07 am
I love that spot too!: http://glitterinthesidewalk.blogspot.com/2008/02/wintersummer-lower-east-side.html
April 10, 2008 at 10:11 am
i love it!
April 10, 2008 at 10:16 am
Everything doesn’t deserve praise! She looks like she’s channeling Rosanna Arquette in Desperately Seeking Susan. I like the Jacket and maybe combined with other pieces in different silhouettes the odd bits of this may work – but honestly I think she looks like a mess. Those sneakers – are you kidding me, or is that what LES is all about. The back drop is great – very gritty, like her footwear. Oh, did I miss that, is that what pulls this all together?
April 10, 2008 at 10:18 am
The empty field used to be a church or synagogue just a few years back. I used to sit on the steps with friends and people watch at night during the summer. I went looking for that spot last summer and and found it empty. A friend who was there told me the roof caved in on itself. I’m glad they haven’t turned it into another bistro or lux condo yet.
April 10, 2008 at 10:25 am
On the down side, your “perfect” back drop records the sad fate of the very old and very beautiful synagogue that collapsed here about 2-21/2 years ago.
That is all I see when I see this photo.
April 10, 2008 at 10:39 am
I confess I don’t admire the dirty shoes or the bunched-up socks. These aside, though, I love the look and color choices. I also like the way she lowers the outfit’s formality with a backpack.
I want that jacket!
April 10, 2008 at 10:44 am
Is this Hanne? I’ve seen a photo of her wearing this outfit somewhere before during fashion week. Looks lovely!
April 10, 2008 at 10:47 am
Terrific! Love the background and lighting. The sun caught in the fence and the halo of her hair promise spring. Great sunglasses and a hint of a smile are charming. Adorable girl right down to her sneakers.

April 10, 2008 at 10:49 am
she’s ready for Spring, the guy below is ready for Arctic storms. Same day same city. I’m confused
April 10, 2008 at 11:32 am
Is it just a black T-shirt underneath? I can’t really tell.
April 10, 2008 at 11:46 am
What a great jacket. love the vertical lines and the buttons on it.
April 10, 2008 at 11:47 am
I think Hanne’s face is much more gaunt than this girl’s… also somehow I can’t quite picture her in this look
April 10, 2008 at 11:48 am
she reminds me kirsten dunst.
very nice backdrop -makes her look like an urban princess.
April 10, 2008 at 11:55 am
I like the look. I don’t care if the shoes are dirty. They’re cute and comfortable. I love the pop the pink has. Love the scarf, the glasses, the hair. She probably put this together in 20 minutes and walked out the door. I don’t think it’s that hard to get it right. And I think she did. It’s great.
April 10, 2008 at 12:00 pm
I think she looks great. As a student, I still love the fact that we can get away with wearing comfy ratty sneakers. Certainly when I’m older I’ll be in heels 24/7, but for now I’m holding on to childhood chucks for as long as possible. Lay off her footwear choice! She wears them beautifully and typically with the rest of her outfit – love the jacket.
A note about that empty lot. It used to be the First Roumanian-American Synagogue. It was about 150 Years old and was the first synagogue on the Lower East Side. It was torn down in 2006 after the building fell into disrepair.
Fashion is transient… human legacy should not be. As New York is wiped clean… so with it… many wonderful aspects of what our city is about. There is not one single neighborhood in our lovely city that remains untouched by progress. While progress must take us forward… We must be more aware of what is cleared away. The worst thing is when you see a big empty lot and cannot remember what was there before. A daily occurrence.
I remember standing in front of that building as it was being torn down, it’s face ripped off, exposing the interior to the elements, and thinking what a shame it was to lose this part of New York. The restaurant owner across the street later remarked that now he got afternoon sun.
How many charming, detailed doorways might have you have caught someone with just the right color buttons waiting for the rain to stop?
I suppose the other side is that as many of these historically relevant and lovely spaces are cleared away for new ones, we have an opportunity to look closer at each other as there are less doorways for us to blend in to…. and celebrate the people on our streets…which is, of course, is what the Sarrtorialist is all about.
April 10, 2008 at 12:01 pm
I really love her pink jaket…so cute, looks great on here. I’ve been really hard looking for the perfect cream rain-coat… but there’s no way to find it, so may be after watching this picture I’ll look for something better like this..I like it!

wow! she’s a young gweneth paltrow.
April 10, 2008 at 12:15 pm
Nice pink jacket! We need to bring back hats for men And wear more colour. Agreed?
April 10, 2008 at 12:31 pm
oh my god, feminine perfection! that smile makes me melt…
April 10, 2008 at 12:46 pm
Her pink jacket reminds me of my supersweet Marc Jacobs but with shorter arms (or sleeves as i think you say it in english).. sugar sugar sugar sweet..
April 10, 2008 at 12:49 pm
Love it! specially the hole thing of the sneakers.. I think that actually the mixture of the jackey and the rebelliousness of the converses makes it!JUli·
April 10, 2008 at 12:52 pm
Oh no! The return of the Kirsten Dunst comments!aoynedr
April 10, 2008 at 1:02 pm
The contradictions are the point. And they’re very well done and tell a lot about her and also about the world we live in.
And isn’t that what’s so great about fashion?

Have you realised that you just take pictures of very skinny women but not men? It is not fair. I like your work but I think that you are helping to give an abnormal perception of women. Not very skinny women can be very stylish as well.
April 10, 2008 at 1:05 pm
I really disagree with the above comments about mixing the sneakers with the tailored jacket. Why not guys? Rules are there to be broken.
I think this look is really grungy with an elegant touch and I think it’s cool that she’s added a preppy edge to the outfit. she looks different…i like it.

Love the jacket! And the dirty Converse
(Am I the only one who thinks that she looks like Kirsten Dunst?)
April 10, 2008 at 1:11 pm
yes it’s Hanne Gaby Odiele, I saw her in that same jacket and scarf :)
April 10, 2008 at 1:13 pm
that outfit is great. i think she looks a wee bit like kirsten dunst
April 10, 2008 at 1:17 pm
mmmm. i’m a guy and this is my ideal style on a woman. cute cute cute.
April 10, 2008 at 1:53 pm
it is hanne
April 10, 2008 at 1:57 pm
Really love the combination of chucks with a nice blazer. Again, a great example of classy mixed with casual.
April 10, 2008 at 1:58 pm
This is one of my favorite looks, when someone can put together a polished and grungy look at once. Most people would look at that jacket and never be able to put an outfit like this together. Love the contrast!
April 10, 2008 at 2:37 pm
Uh oh. Here come the Kirsten Dunst comments again. If you check her name on the web she doesn’t look like her.

The jacket looks like it’s from the Balenciaga Fall07/Winter08 collection.
April 10, 2008 at 2:39 pm
Sart managed to shoot a supermodel again without noticing.
April 10, 2008 at 2:44 pm
Nice shot. I believe Chucks are one of the most underrated and versatile fashion accessories out there. I’m wearing them today, in fact, with Armani and a pashmina.
Fashion is about fun, and owning it. Cheers for furthering that perspective along.
April 10, 2008 at 2:56 pm
Love the shot, love her look! Beautiful!
April 10, 2008 at 2:58 pm
i love it alll!
Yes, this is ALL about the jacket, for me. Is it red and white striped seersucker? With double breasted brass buttons? GORGEOUS. She wears it well, nice contrast and whatnot with the hipster look underneath, but that jacket would make ANY outfit rock.
April 10, 2008 at 3:09 pm
I like that you’ve been writing recently.
April 10, 2008 at 3:26 pm
Absolutely gorgeous. The jacket is to die for.
I almost never comment on here, but for this particular outfit and photo, I just had to. Perfect backdrop for the perfect outfit. LOVE. Sartorialist, you are awesome.
April 10, 2008 at 3:35 pm
I want her pefect jacket right now!
And I love the slight rebellious and urban background againt her rather polished and sharp look
April 10, 2008 at 3:55 pm
The jacket looks like Balenciaga. And she looks familiar. I think she might be Hanne.
April 10, 2008 at 4:01 pm
April 10, 2008 at 4:02 pm
This is gorgeous, reminds me o balenciaga fall 07 a bit.
April 10, 2008 at 4:05 pm
i am pretty certain that jacket is from balenciaga
April 10, 2008 at 4:19 pm
I know some people asked about the jacket and it’s a balenciaga knock-off. So theres a good chance it’s from Zara, H&M, topshop or the life.
April 10, 2008 at 4:45 pm
the outfit is not that special but its hanne sooooo of course it looks cute. love her mulberry ads.
April 10, 2008 at 5:30 pm
April 10, 2008 at 5:42 pm
The jacket makes the outfit. I strive for this look quite often.
April 10, 2008 at 5:45 pm
I wish I could get her style with my converse! She looks easy, stylish an comfortable at the same time. That salmon jacket!
April 10, 2008 at 5:46 pm
I love her scarf! I thought it was black until I looked at the picture close-up. I love just the little bit of color it adds.
April 10, 2008 at 6:02 pm
Love the color of the jacket
April 10, 2008 at 6:27 pm
I liked very much this picture. Her jacket is really adorable, and great background by the way… I like your photos because of the light, the places, and most of all how you capture the very best essence of each person… your photos are very very good. I want to buy Paris Vogue just because of your photos, but here in Brazil they didn’t arrived, so I’m getting on my nerves!! hahaha

April 10, 2008 at 7:11 pm
Glad to know that what has become MY signature look (tailored jacket, skinny jeans, scarf, and flats) has now become part of Sartorialist history. Though I have to say, my tailored jackets are no where near as cute at that pink little number. ;) Any clue as to where it’s from?
April 10, 2008 at 7:12 pm
Wonderful. LOVE that jacket.
April 10, 2008 at 7:13 pm
anna (4:19), why did you say this jacket was a knock off?
the weave on the fabric, the gold snap buttons, the 2 perfectly place pockets on her right hand side, the black lapels, the joints between the shoulders and sleeves (slightly raised and pointy), all these attention to details couldn’t possibly come from a knock off (and these details are why we pay top dollar for balenciaga).
here’s a comparision with a black version from pre-fall 07: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=2694268&l=b599d&id=521775553
kudos to scott for having the “click for bigger pic” function!
April 10, 2008 at 7:26 pm
She’s a model, non?
And is her jacket Balenciagaaaa?
April 10, 2008 at 7:30 pm
Sart, is it true that you didn’t realize you’re shooting a supermodel?
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this look. Best I’ve seen on here for ladies in a looooong time. She does it right.
April 10, 2008 at 8:28 pm
I love everything but the backpack. She gave me courage to reconsider wearing my old chucks..
April 10, 2008 at 9:17 pm
So many modern pinks are too birght and saturated…this is an old pink, 1940′s-50′s; I love that.
April 10, 2008 at 9:51 pm
Dammit. Can we stop giving people a free pass with the Converse? It’s a stupidly excellent outfit but the shoes completely clash. Anything, even dirty flats would have been fine.
April 10, 2008 at 10:02 pm
love that pink coat. perfect color & fit.
makes me want to go out & buy a pair of converse, but i’d never make it look that cool.
April 10, 2008 at 10:24 pm
it’s the jawline of hanne but her lips seem significantly smaller.
this look is really close to my heart. i add my cons to alot of outfits, just to make it feel like me. stepping out of the box is something that really makes me feel alive when it comes to fashion and putting on my most comfortably pair of shoes just makes it all come together for me.
is she standing on the backs of the shoe? i do that as well!
April 10, 2008 at 10:27 pm
That old synagogue was beautiful. It’s sad it’s gone.
Great jacket! And sneakers ease the pain of heels from the night before :)

A cute young girl, maybe some other kind of shoes would look nicer.
April 11, 2008 at 1:28 am
love it. gorgeous.
April 11, 2008 at 1:33 am
i cant stop staring at the photo!great shot!
April 11, 2008 at 1:45 am
is she carrying a backpack?
April 11, 2008 at 5:00 am
I like the scarf in contrast to the jacket. hippy meets preppy.and her legs! wish I had those. they built a geometrically perfect `X ` in that pose.Is she carrying a daypack?the lady as a tramp? anyway, such a relaxed outfit, superb!
April 11, 2008 at 9:01 am
Oh, come on. What’s with all the All Star hating? It’s laid-back city style. It doesn’t clash and they give the outfit a cool vibe that’s totally different from what you’d get with something more formal. Since when did it become heels or nothing?I think she looks very cool.
April 11, 2008 at 9:13 am
hey sart, always such a wonderful vision of people in general & girls in particular, even more sweet when we know you have a beautiful little girl you take care of !xxx
April 11, 2008 at 9:34 am
Not particularly related to this picture but here it goes. I much prefer your classic style subjects than the more fashion forward pictures. I could say that i mostly follow your blog to catch some of those pictures. I have a comment of a somewhat technical nature, you seem to burn a lot of highlights on you pictures. Do you shoot RAW?
April 11, 2008 at 9:43 am
Maybe same jacket on Hanne at Chloe Fall 08?http://www.style.com/slideshows/fashionshows/F2008RTW/CHLOE/BACKSTAGE/00210m.jpg
April 11, 2008 at 9:48 am
i love the gold buttons! where can i get me some gold buttons?
April 11, 2008 at 9:49 am
I absolutely LOVE this look, from the bright jacket down to the slouchy sock and those magnificent Converse! This is the style I strive for. It’s so realistic, and awesome style.
A note regarding Jared’s comment, I agree! I live in a city that many beautiful churches and other buildings were torn down for ugly condo buildings, and of course no one now remembers or knew what was there.
April 11, 2008 at 10:25 am
I’m disappointed to hear that 1) she’s a model (again) and 2) that she is wearing expensive clothes. (if the jacket is balenciaga) I understand that I can look at this and take inspiration from many of its elements, but with those two facts above I’m reminded why average people feel that looking stylish is out of their reach. I still admire your blog, I’m just trying to put my feelings into words here.
April 11, 2008 at 11:24 am
April 11, 2008 at 1:16 pm
How do you approach people? Cheers.
April 11, 2008 at 3:30 pm
Ok, this is a little unrealted BUT:Since when do we call any model whose face we recognize a Supermodel? This girl may be a model, and she may make a hell of a lot of money, but she’s no supermodel. Supermodels are the ones who cross into the mainstream, the ones who names are household, and not just known among those of us who avidly read fashion magazines. As far as I’m concerned, the last girl to really get that status is Giselle.
April 11, 2008 at 3:33 pm
I don’t know. I’m not crazy about this one. It seems like such a standard university student look. I don’t think it’s that inspired. It reminds me of Ivy League hipsters or something. But I do like the chucks.
April 11, 2008 at 4:14 pm
I like this photo. Interesting jacket too. Does anyone know what material it is? I looked closer, but it’s hard to tell because of the vertical lines. It looked like seersucker or even knit?
April 11, 2008 at 5:44 pm
Only got hooked to this blog a few months ago, but this is my first time to post. This shot is just so beautiful and attainable in every sense. The lighting is what always gets me.
April 11, 2008 at 7:34 pm
very LES side and I still like it. Nice jacket and chuck combo, very running around on the weekend or post graduate look that work well into the 30′s and 40′s.
April 11, 2008 at 11:38 pm
Cute cute cute!
April 12, 2008 at 3:20 am
I love this, but some sort of flats would have been so much better than the chucks.
April 12, 2008 at 8:53 am
Love the entire outfit, including the chucks. The backpack and the chucks contradicts the formality of the rest of the outfit; making it actually interesting in comparison with other shoe choices.
April 12, 2008 at 9:18 am
Great photo, as usual :-). A very pretty girl. The contrast of the designer jacket and the scarf makes for an unconventional combination. But I don’t get the shoes: a pair of dirty, worn out sneakers is a pair of dirty, worn out sneakers, no matter what the rest of the outfit is. Just cover the upper half of the picture and look at her feet: do they look attractive?
April 12, 2008 at 2:11 pm
I could never pull it off, but I love it! I like the contradiction between the footwear and the outfit itself. Fun and full of joie de’ vivre.
April 12, 2008 at 4:19 pm
it’s Hanne Gaby! :Di love this casual look. it’s always cool to see models in their every-day clothes.
April 12, 2008 at 8:29 pm
beautiful shot indeed. i wish you wouldn’t refer to it as LES. you know what i mean? lower east side is the appropriate vernacular.
April 13, 2008 at 7:45 am
is she Hanne-Gaby Odiele?
April 13, 2008 at 10:46 am
I *love* this kind of thing. Elegance and couture with a little punk mixed in. Could’ve used some slightly less-beat-up Chucks, but the look is all there. Great, great shot.
April 13, 2008 at 4:02 pm
I think it really doesnt matter who she is or that she is wearing Balenciaga. I like how she puts it all together and I must say, I absolutely adore the fact that she is wearing a backpack. I am a young mother and I am forced to wear backpack sometimes when I carry all the necessities for my child. I must say that I never thought I could look stylish with a backpack on. Hm, and here is a proof that it is possible. Thank you Sart, once gain.
April 13, 2008 at 4:06 pm
soo good,incredible !you’re so great Sart !i’m smashed !
April 13, 2008 at 7:11 pm
i like the long lean look – the shoulders on the jacket are perfect but that could be because she has a backpack on…anyway it all works well and its a great casual shot!!
April 14, 2008 at 1:03 am
The pairing of the posh jacket and the beat up converse shoes is what give this outfit so much personality in my humble opnion. I like the glam punk feel of this shot. Acesssible. Great backdrop too.
Perhaps she has a lot of walking to do, and so the “right” shoes are placed in her backpack, but I hope not as this is a great look as it is, from top to toe.
April 14, 2008 at 1:41 pm
Can you recommend a better alternative to Converse sneakers? I think they should be done and away with. But otherwise, great outfit.
April 14, 2008 at 5:40 pm
Wow, what a fantastic jacket – I love how you actually put some effort into the shots you take; you can really tell
April 14, 2008 at 6:08 pm
Somewhat mod. Great picture and outfit!
April 14, 2008 at 9:41 pm
Love. I want to be just like you, Mr Sartorialist.
April 15, 2008 at 6:27 pm
She’s confortable, easy and she surely has a great personality. Pink, black, purple, let me wrtite that down. I wonder how her eyes look like…
April 16, 2008 at 5:31 pm
Oh man, I almost like this look too much.Getting jealous,, I want that jacket – and to be able to wear those pants..
Love the background.
April 17, 2008 at 3:08 pm
the pink is PERFECT with the sneakers!
April 18, 2008 at 3:56 am
that’s how i feel today. love outfit

April 21, 2008 at 7:31 pm
i saw that jacket at the barneys sale its dolce and gabbanna i think..super expensive LES my ass! but im just jealous because i tried it on and it looked wierd :( Looks so effortless on her plus those amazing legs just pull it off
April 21, 2008 at 11:54 pm
To comment on something other than the clothes: I live right around the corner from this spot. The roof of the synagogue that used to be here collapsed completely about 2 years ago. There is loads of construction going on on the blocks surrounding this lot and for some reason, no one has built anything on this vacant lot. This is by far the most green in this area.
Oh, yeah, the clothes: love that shrimp jacket!!
April 23, 2008 at 4:26 pm
LES? What does that mean!
April 27, 2008 at 6:15 pm
Nice outfit…but the jacket looks kind of grandma-ish, because the rest of the look is so young!

March 5, 2009 at 7:38 pm
I love every inch of what she has put together… though I’d be concerned about the backpack straps damaging the shoulders of the Balenciaga!
June 17, 2009 at 5:17 pm
gorgeous photo but gorgeous outfit too! so something that i could pull off – i'm definitely taking notes!
