    what, sart! you can’t be serious? the outfit would have been top notch without the hat. i think a big hat like that rarely works, and that hat is not even pretty. no no no

    So fresh, so beautiful. Can it really be October? Notice how, although the light is behind her, the light-colored dress reflects light onto her face so it simply glows beneath that hat. The effect is stunning.

    No gloomy Sundays in Paris, I suppose…

    I love the combination of thick fabrics & dark colours (hat, bag, shoes) and light fabrics (the dress).

    People could wear more hats. But one must be brave enough to wear them – because hats draw attention.

Turtle neck in a pale grey and the cardy in that wonderful plaid. His glasses are so very Errol Flynn! DASHING!!!!
    I think he is the true star in his subtle charms and relaxed looks.

    hmn, it’s not working for me for some reason. wish i could be more specific … something to do with heaviness in the accessories and a lack of balance. and the smile, while bright, is self-conscious. i think this affects my reading of the photo. dig the dude though.

    The Best Look of The Year!

    Enhorabuena una vez más al Sartorialista por su aparición en el EPS (El País): “En primera liga sólo juegan las páginas estadounidenses. Y el máximo goleador se esconde bajo el sofisticado nombre de The Sartorialist. El estadounidense Scott Schuman, de 39 años, saltó de las entradas de su observatorio fotográfico a una tribuna en la revista GQ en octubre de 2006, y a otra en Elle. “Empecé a hacer fotos por curiosidad y abrí una web para compartirlas en septiembre de 2005. Me siento orgulloso de haber propiciado un constructivo diálogo entre los apasionados de la moda”, afirma humilde desde Nueva York, donde vive con sus dos hijos de ocho y cinco años. Su página, un compendio de imágenes que documentan la elegancia de los neoyorkinos, milaneses y parisienses, se encuadra en uno de los cinco compartimentos en los que se pueden organizar las páginas de moda. The Sartorialist, como la japonesa Tokio Street Stle o la inglesa London Street Fashion, es un diario de instantáneas urbanas. Se trata de una excelente base documental que permite teorizar sobre los estilos de las ciudades (…) Schuman, que conoce al dedillo los hábitos estéticos de las ciudades, resume: “Si Milán es masculina, París es femenina. Y Berlín y Estocolmo, libres de la dictadura de la poderosa industria de la moda, son las más alocadas y creativas”.

    There is something captivating about the way the pink feathers/fluff trail behind her in the wind, glistening in the sun. That sort of hat is a bold and daring risk that would not pay off nearly so well for most women.

She hand-paints scarves and pocket squares. They are like couture. I love her work. She’s designing ties now too, and I hear she might be doing shoes and jewelery next season. She is a romantic and is very feminine. The picture captures her grace. Check out her work if you are not familiar with it http://www.ashleyashoff.com. I can’t say enough positive things about this young talent. She is a breath of fresh air to the fashion industry.
