I can’t take it. The whole world is turning into hippiedippydom
October 19, 2007 at 10:46 am
Wow Sart, you have truly outdone yourself. Who is that girl in the second pic, you have taken her pic before, non?
October 19, 2007 at 10:59 am
The last two looks are very nice – the one simple the other one more complex but both good-Really liked the beige blouse-dress with the CC bracelets.
October 19, 2007 at 11:08 am
I love the 4th pic down. Very Mod
October 19, 2007 at 11:09 am
I love it all.
The girl in the sweaterdress pulled off a great androgynous look too.
October 19, 2007 at 11:11 am
The pale blue jacket and the high water pants with men´s hat – I got so homesick for Paris it hurts! The rainy asphalt and all those smiles on skinny legs. I´ll be there again one day too! Thanks for widening the focus of fashion to include life and real people.
October 19, 2007 at 11:14 am
Love the green dress with the black. What a beautiful photo. I wish she had more feminine shoes, but that is just a personal preference. She looks fantastic.
October 19, 2007 at 11:20 am
My, What long Legs Alt has. Of the thre her look is what I wish I could wear.
October 19, 2007 at 11:25 am
I can’t get enough of that green dress either. The color is my latest obsession.
October 19, 2007 at 11:26 am
Love the second and third looks – the insouciance of all that creamy white and sneakers in particular.
October 19, 2007 at 11:28 am
Ooooooh – I love the color of that green dress.
And I also love the hat the lady below her is wearing.
October 19, 2007 at 11:48 am
She has legs for days!
Hey, there’s the cute Asian pixie girl again! Look at that smile.
October 19, 2007 at 11:49 am
Perfect. Every shot is spot on, just as Paris should be.
October 19, 2007 at 11:59 am
Strange, they all look like they’re wearing ice skates.
October 19, 2007 at 12:02 pm
do we know Alt’s heritage? I find the shemagh (palestinian scarf) a fascinating choice – and wonder if it is harkening to her heritage, to Balenciaga F 07, or to just her unrivaled choice for the day? it’s been a hot topic of discussion amongst us in the office – inquiring minds want to know….
October 19, 2007 at 12:09 pm
Uh Oh! Bring on the keffiyeh discussions! That’s what this blog is about: what does fashion mean?
October 19, 2007 at 12:39 pm
I love the green velvet dress, as I have always had a weakness for rich, textured fabrics, but the simplicity of the girl in the 4th pic is very appealing. Glad she wore a small bag, too.
October 19, 2007 at 12:53 pm
The Palestinian scarf look just says retro ’80s to me. Every hipster, male and female, did the scarf/leather jacket combo back in the early 80s.
October 19, 2007 at 1:06 pm
I love the dirty skirt on our favorite gamine! I bet she’s tons of fun to hang out with.
October 19, 2007 at 1:43 pm
Naturally love them all, but particularly the last two. The simple shift is beautiful. In the last shot, the roomy yet tailored proportions work wonderfully. In the vein of Annie Hall!
October 19, 2007 at 1:52 pm
Though that last outfit is fabulous, designer logos always read “fashion victim” to me.
October 19, 2007 at 2:12 pm
Love the Contax 645 with speed grip.
October 19, 2007 at 3:07 pm
love, love the green dress. also loving bracelets in the fourth photo, and the attitude in last photo is great.
October 19, 2007 at 3:53 pm
err, ms. photo #2 is amazing. that woman can work a wardrobe – you now have pictures of her with the same dress in two dif. ways and the same shoes in two dif. ways. who is she? i could read a blog on just her for days.
October 19, 2007 at 4:17 pm
1. The epitome of Cool.4. Dig the guy. Covet his belt. Interesting little detail on his pockets.
October 19, 2007 at 4:27 pm
The last woman looks like a modern day Annie Hall
October 19, 2007 at 6:09 pm
Amazing! My favourites are the first and the last looks!
October 19, 2007 at 7:13 pm
Love the girl in the top pic. What she’s done with the scarf, the boots and the extreme cut of the jeans is admirable, and brave.
October 19, 2007 at 8:26 pm
I love the clean-cut quirkiness of the lady in the last photo!
Alt’s look is nice, but it’s all over the streets in London and now it’s starting to come to L.A. Sadly by now it’s beginning to feel a bit worn out.
Who is that fellow off to the side all in black and blue? He looks delicious.
haha, the second girl down has that typical Asian ability to look 15 and 40 years old at the same time.
October 19, 2007 at 8:52 pm
In the fourth pic Chanel that guy must be extremely uncomfortable standing there with a broken ankle.
October 19, 2007 at 9:23 pm
who *is* that man next to the chanel cuff girl?? he is the dreamiest dreamboat ever.
October 19, 2007 at 11:02 pm
Now this is a collection.I´m not saying I fancy their outfits in particular but if I had to choose,girl 2 has a very personal way of dressing and it suits her well.Her origin is exotic and petite and somehow white also in the fake fur vest looks fun on her.She also has a nice smile.There is something cute in the outfit of girl 5,although I believe she´d look better by leaving something out.Now there is a bit too much of everything.I have noticed that black booties are very much ìn´this season.Alone in this collection three girls are wearing them.
October 20, 2007 at 12:32 am
Hee, Hee. I entered the comments on this set of pics to see if anyone would mention the keffiyah. It’s interesting that this has become a fashion statement. I wear one around because I like the look but also because I am a human rights activist, thus the plight of Palestinians is a concern of my work. :) It is interesting to note the reactions I get. On the train, sometimes I will register someone glaring at me…..other times I will notice someone smiling warmly at me. Either way, the keffiyah never fails to get a reaction.
October 20, 2007 at 2:48 am
oh, that jeremy scott bag.
October 20, 2007 at 4:37 am
To Anonymous 12:02PM, I think you’re reading too much into Alt’s choice of scarf. In Europe – UK especially – try-hard/genuine indie kids have been wearing them for at least a year solid; 99% of the time with leather jackets. They’re everywhere, it’s quite irritating. I’m surprised someone as trendless as Alt (who is so amazing usually) would pick up something so generic.
October 20, 2007 at 7:09 am
The girl in black looks great!
October 20, 2007 at 9:14 am
Great collection of shots!
But I find it disturbing when pretty skirts, or dresses or really long coats get dragged through puddles or mud.
October 20, 2007 at 9:19 am
I just love the hair color of the girl in the fourth pic. Stunning!
And the boy’s cardigan looks interesting. Wonder what’s the material?
October 20, 2007 at 9:40 am
That last pic is just awesome from the waistcoat to the knowing smile! I love it and wish I could recreate it without spending…. money…
October 20, 2007 at 10:06 am
what does it tell you about where fashion trends begin and where they end up in that the keffiyeh scarf Alt is wearing has been adorning the necks of every slightly cool, slightly hipster North London teenager for a good two years now.and now finally Carine’s right hand woman is wearing one.
October 20, 2007 at 12:25 pm
The second to last picture is what caught my eye and made me stop. The two look quite mod, and I love it.
October 20, 2007 at 1:27 pm
the girl with the green dress looks fabulous, the combination of the dainty dress and those kind of heavy shoes is really nice.
October 20, 2007 at 4:14 pm
The fourth lady was in the New York Times Style section- next to that same guy in front of the same car in that same outfit.
October 20, 2007 at 4:17 pm
The girl in the first picture is sleek, stylish, chic, edgy, attractive… And yet she lacks a vital element, THE vital element of good fashion- originality. And so she bores me.
October 20, 2007 at 6:16 pm
RE: Broken Ankle –Are you kidding? What a lame comment.
October 20, 2007 at 6:35 pm
Lol It’s true Anon 11:59, and all of their shoes have a reflection.. It’s very interesting how the middle guy in the 4rth photo layered a striped black and white t-shirt, dark grey blouse, and a black dotted cardigan
October 20, 2007 at 9:53 pm
that photographer is truly fabulous! same with the christopher kane dress. he’s such a good designer.
October 20, 2007 at 10:05 pm
i love these pictures. the thematic contrast is … yes! amazing! masculine meets feminine. prim meets grunge. expectations with a shot of surprise.
fashion. where expression of creativity and art in one’s appearance is demanded.
i love it!
October 20, 2007 at 10:37 pm
who makes alt’s jacket? i swear, it was love at frst sight…in the last picture of her circa september. who’d a thunk it would be so difficult to find the perfect leather jacket.
October 21, 2007 at 12:06 am
I think that the green dress is by Christopher Kane, no?
October 21, 2007 at 12:13 am
I loved your last photo of Mme Alt, but in this her pants look a little too tight and ill-fitting.
That green dress is so lovely. Love the boots on that girl, too.
October 21, 2007 at 6:03 am
All very sweet, but the first two especially, the queen of tough urban chic and your lovely new muse, who seems to be flirting with a number of styles with remarkable ease. Cool ladies.
October 21, 2007 at 7:21 am
now see, I was at chanel in a gown and feather coat, and no one took MY picture.
October 21, 2007 at 5:27 pm
i the two in the fourth picture featured in a nytimes slideshow on the shows. the photo wasn’t as lovely, though :)
October 21, 2007 at 5:29 pm
Green velvet dress = Christopher Kane?
October 21, 2007 at 5:48 pm
the 1st and 3rd pictures are great keep up the good work
October 21, 2007 at 7:20 pm
First comment: hippiedippydom, haha!
This set is fueled with young edgy attitude. Each individual here is etremely bold and adventurous in their elegant choices, many elements that hold them as fashion misfits meaning they’re surely trend setters.
October 21, 2007 at 7:54 pm
your photos are SO much better than Bill Cunningham’s!! esp the one of the woman in white sweater/gloves

Amazing stuff from Chanel.
October 22, 2007 at 1:26 am
I absolutely LOOOVE the last one! Uggh. Can I have the money to have clothes like that?
October 22, 2007 at 1:47 am
The young Coco with the red Dutch Boy haircut and the Gaoucho with the metallic bag are great.
October 22, 2007 at 1:59 am
the girl in the first photo with the scarf, its becoming very popular what is it called and where is it from?
October 22, 2007 at 2:08 am
female johnny depp female johnny depp!!yeah what a great outfit i especially like those pants! wooow
October 22, 2007 at 3:04 am
i like the way the red-headed 20-something girl exudes Parisian chic hipness without resorting to the typical kitch overkill displayed by 20-something hipsters(maybe somebody knows what i mean by this)…didn’t that stud to the right of her used to model for GUESS? jeans?that woman beside him looks like ellen von unwerth??esp love their starry Chanel booklets.
October 22, 2007 at 6:05 am
That first girl is wearing pretty much the same style I rock daily- however, I sure don’t have legs like those!
October 22, 2007 at 6:57 am
LOVE the top and the bottom pictures! the first girl.. man Iwish I had those legs!
October 22, 2007 at 7:11 am
I love the gamine girl with the sweater dress, but put the shemagh away, please, lady in the first photograph! (I remember them from the first time round, and didn’t think it was a good look even then!)
October 22, 2007 at 10:04 am
I like your photo better than the one that appears of this same funky couple in the NY Times: http://www.nytimes.com/slideshow/2007/10/19/fashion/20071021STREET_8.html
October 22, 2007 at 11:12 pm
Sart, Will you ever reveal who she is??? We know she is a photographer and everytime you snap her, she draws a great deal of response…have a reveal!!!I am thrilled to see her in her Converse again….She is a doll!!!Enjoy China…if you run into my buddy Josh also in the same area as you, have him buy you a drink on me, You deserve it!!!Cheers
October 23, 2007 at 7:49 am
oh these are priceless. it’s not that I’d wear any outfit exactly as is ( I wouldn’t) it’s the confidence with which they hold themselves that sells it. Oh… and the occasional Chanel tote that manages to make casual look fabulous ;)
October 23, 2007 at 2:28 pm
you go Tracy…she’s a really cool and down to earth person with amazing individual style. love the shrunken jacket and the Zoave pleated pants. not for everybody but she definitely gets away with it.
October 23, 2007 at 3:50 pm
All these looks are superb!
October 24, 2007 at 1:25 am
The girl in beige is lovely, and I love those platforms.
Edie Sedgwick modernized, very nicely done.
October 24, 2007 at 4:27 pm
last pic is tracy taylor…she always wears that jacket. loooveee the pants. updated annie hall. but she should lose the bag.
October 25, 2007 at 6:42 am
I was baffled by the sweater dress one, they pulled off the androgynous look so well! The first picture looks so rocker chic and the shemagh scarf finishes teh look off perfectly.
October 27, 2007 at 10:20 am
I think the girl with the Chanel cuffs looks great. Normally I find that quilted bags looks stuffy aqnd dated (at least I feel that way), but she makes it look cool. And, maybe I am wrong, but the guy with her looks a lot like Nicholas Ghesquire (spelling?) of Balenciaga??
October 28, 2007 at 12:45 pm
The photographer is soo cute, like a little puppy dog asking to take your picture after you’ve been denied entrace to rue du mail.
October 29, 2007 at 5:38 pm
Wonderful shots. The first and last especially caught my attention. The woman in the first photo appears to have the longest legs in existence. The reflection of her black shoes in the puddle give the illusion of another foot of height!
You'll Never Know

oh wow i love this so much all of iti would love to be able to dress like they do

i love how the girl in the 5th pic dressed up. so cool!
January 14, 2010 at 2:45 pm
that top pic is great. almost like an optical illusion to make her legs look exaggeratedly elongated

June 13, 2013 at 12:24 am
I truly like the “blue” and the way it combines the miss with the beautiful find! It’s perfect!
