Oh wow… I don’t even have words to describe this one. I’ve faithfully browsed your site for months now but this is prompting my first comment. Amazing.

very very sexyyyyyyyy gal ^ ^

You may have answered this before, but how do they ride bikes in skirts? Very carefully?
April 30, 2007 at 2:13 am
What a sweet, summer, kiss! So, so cute.
April 30, 2007 at 2:45 am
Expect a spike in bike sales this summer, thanks to Herr Sartor (and this wonderful young woman – and others this spring…).
This natural look is just delightful! Hair, earrings, watch… her…. EVERYTHING! TODO! ALLES!
April 30, 2007 at 3:00 am
I don’t think they ride the bikes at all. It’s just an accessory. How else?
But, very nice. Innocent and hot. I couldn’t pull that off, but I’m quite glad she does. Looks perfect.
another stunner in a skirt with a bike..i’m moving to Europe toute suite
April 30, 2007 at 3:01 am
so fresh so fresh!yes this prompted my first comment too. woweee!
April 30, 2007 at 3:21 am
She’s so pretty. Very summery look overall.Although part of the easy look, it’s unfortunate the loose dress doesn’t bring out the shape of her body – as it seems she totally has the figure to show. Maybe wearing a thin belt or something would help..?
April 30, 2007 at 3:37 am
simple, breezy, cute. not breathtaking. this is what I wear in the summer. i would be wearing this right now, but it’s too damn cold in seattle and i’m white as hell! oh, and as usual, love the bikes. there’s no deliberate way of riding a bike in a skirt or dress. just make sure it’s short enough not to get caught in anything, and go for it! who cares!
April 30, 2007 at 3:47 am
how do these women manage to wear such short dresses? do they wear shorts underneath or just cute briefs? what if a wind blows, do they just look like marilyn monroe?I want to learn how to wear something similar and not feel uncomfortable abot showing my panties.
April 30, 2007 at 4:16 am
That’s why I love living in Germany.Don’t miss to note the cute Gazelle bike, too.
April 30, 2007 at 4:25 am
Good lord that is a very short skirt to be riding a bicycle. Still, maybe she just wheels it around town looking cute….
April 30, 2007 at 4:33 am
This is the ideal lady’s bike. You naturally sit up straight in the saddle. No problem. Sart has shown us some lovely young women on these bikes, but just think of how straight Miss Gooch sits as she peddles along with little Toto in her basket…
April 30, 2007 at 4:46 am
Words do no justice..
Bring on spring then summer – unfortunately we are moving into winter (Sydney, Australia).
Love your work!
April 30, 2007 at 5:01 am
Oh my god, she’s gorgeous.
April 30, 2007 at 5:04 am
She looks like Charlize Theron with a dash of Scarlett Johansson. Very cute!
April 30, 2007 at 5:07 am
The perfect female shape: textbook gynaecoid. Bellissimo.
April 30, 2007 at 5:17 am
Is she wearing shorts under that dress so she can ride her bike? Sweet and sexy.
April 30, 2007 at 5:57 am
If you like dresses AND biking, you also have to like causing accidents, yours are others, depends on the lengh and volume of the skirt.
April 30, 2007 at 7:44 am
The warmth in this picture is almost tangible.
April 30, 2007 at 7:51 am
Summer> Haha, exactly my thought. Maybe the bicycle is more an accessory?
April 30, 2007 at 7:57 am
amazing! she is really amazing!
April 30, 2007 at 8:17 am
Can i say… terrrrrific !?
April 30, 2007 at 8:45 am
How cute! Flowerprinted dresses and ballerinashoes is the best uniform at summer. Cute hairstyle as well!
April 30, 2007 at 8:59 am
c’est une belle jeune fille qui semble bien dans sa peau
so breezy so happy
April 30, 2007 at 9:02 am
wow she looks gorgeous. yea i’m wondering as well, how do they ride those bikes… in order to get on it she must put her leg over the bike. doesn’t she flash everyone when she’s doing that?
she’s still stunning!and it doesn’t even look slutty because of the high neckline.
April 30, 2007 at 10:07 am
So cute, so sweet, a perfect spring outfit!
April 30, 2007 at 10:20 am
You’re right about her; also the light behind her head lends a sweet feeling.
Just an Observation
April 30, 2007 at 10:56 am
She is so so cute …i agree also.
love the floral pattern and the cute little flats she has on ….classic yet uptodate look for the season.
April 30, 2007 at 11:11 am
gorgeous!!!!!!!!!!!!!! this girl just looks so happy and full of life…..she proves that style is not entirely about clothes….which is not to say that what she’s wearing is ugly or unstylish—on the contrary, it’s very pretty
April 30, 2007 at 11:22 am
It’s not just the cute dress that’s so great, but also the hair, the earrings, the shoes, the watch, the bike . . .
April 30, 2007 at 11:28 am
She’s beautiful. Great lighting in the shot, too!And I love the gold flats!
April 30, 2007 at 12:18 pm
i like your blog so much, & it becomes better & better! like it so much~ muah~
April 30, 2007 at 12:42 pm
that’s the most stylish bike I have ever seen. screw the dress, i want the bike!
April 30, 2007 at 1:24 pm
Where’s the pic with her RIDING the bike??? [cigar-wagging] Ha-cha-cha
April 30, 2007 at 1:39 pm
Ah, sundresses. Even the words Sun and Dress just go so, so well together.

She looks like a vision, with the light shining on from the back. However, it is practical to ride a bicycle with a dress that short?
Sart, did you see her ride the bike?
April 30, 2007 at 2:04 pm
Girl of my dreams
April 30, 2007 at 2:17 pm
I love this. So sweet and simple and uncomplicated. No trying to hard to make a statement, which is a statement in itself, and comfort and function is not sacrificed for beauty or vice-versa. xo, Lady
April 30, 2007 at 2:27 pm
yes, I did see her riding the bikeI completely lucked-out when she stopped just down the street.The best part of it was that she completely knew all about The Sartorialist but she wanted some proof that i was really him so luckily I had some business cards on me
She was as sweet and nice in person as she looks in the photo.
ps I think ladies in Europe know a lot of ways to tuck dresses or skirts just right so that can ride their bikes – i remember she went by pretty fast on her bike
April 30, 2007 at 2:55 pm
oh my. and I love that she went with flats instead of sandals.
this has also affirmed my decision to buy a cruiser this summer and ride it all over new york.
April 30, 2007 at 3:05 pm
How summery! And I believe that her hair colour matches her shoes ^^
April 30, 2007 at 4:13 pm
(Can’t come up with other words than that…)
April 30, 2007 at 4:51 pm
The very definition of how to be lovely as well! I am simply captured by this woman’s beauty.
April 30, 2007 at 5:11 pm
She’s so hot. I miss that kind of girls in Switzerland
April 30, 2007 at 5:18 pm
Love the girl, love the dress, love the bike. <3
April 30, 2007 at 5:23 pm
any idea where is this dress from? xD
and the bike concept just rocks
she totally hit the look*
April 30, 2007 at 5:54 pm
I’m not sure if your doing it on purpose, but I love that you’re making bikes an essential accessory. I myself am considering buying a bike, since I don’t own a car. Hopefully it catches on, maybe America does have hope of being a little more environmentally-friendly nation!
The pic is very fresh and vivid! LOVE it
April 30, 2007 at 7:06 pm
She’s very pretty, but I must say I am sick of the tent and empire waist dress trend. They only look good on ONE body type only.
April 30, 2007 at 7:25 pm
I feel that I must chime in on the subject of how European women with skirts ride their bikes.
Bikes are made to be as comfortable as possible in Europe. If you notice the middle support bar on the bike, it is set very low. This allows the rider to lift their leg and place it on the other side with ease. There is no need for mounting the bike like a horse by swinging the leg over from the rear. Thus, no flashing of undergarments to strangers. Then, the rider will back up onto the seat. This assures that the rear of the skirt is covering the bottom. Bike seats are usually large and comfortable, so when the rider is on the bike there is still a bit of seat left poking out the front. This is where the ladies usually put their hand to make sure the skirt doesn’t fly up while riding. Riding with only one hand is a crucial skill required in Europe. As an American living in the Netherlands, I can now talk on my phone, hold an umbrella and smoke while I weave through traffic on my bike.
BTW, absolutely beautiful shot.
April 30, 2007 at 8:15 pm
What a beauty!!
April 30, 2007 at 9:50 pm
this is gorgeous but…how does she ride a bike w/ a dress that short
April 30, 2007 at 9:51 pm
That is one hot frau. She makes a muumuu look sexy.

Lucky Sart! Not only did you get a beautiful photo, you met a fan and you had your business card with you.
You lucky dog, you.
May 1, 2007 at 12:54 am
Love it. (Think I tried that dress on at H&M. Looks a lot better on her, though.)
May 1, 2007 at 1:19 am
May 1, 2007 at 6:44 am
cute girl and dress but what a brilliant shot! perfect lighting and composition. the bike, lamp post and cobble stones really add to the photo.
May 1, 2007 at 7:59 am
That’s so funny Kenley, I am a Dutch girl and you nailed it when you explained the bike riding in Europe. The key is to be creative: tuck your skirt between your legs, hold your skirt, wear shorts, hang your coat/jacket on the steering wheel so you won’t flash your panties… I could go on and on. Use your imagination… The girl is adorable by the way.
May 1, 2007 at 10:04 am
She’s beautiful! I LOVE that dress…does anyone know where I’d be able to find one like it?? Thanks!
May 1, 2007 at 12:33 pm

Fresh, spring like feel both on the girl and the photo.
Her dress could have some shape to it though. Cheers to the lovely lady who looks lovely despite that dress!

I’m loving this look. So alluringly sexy in a nice way

May 24, 2007 at 2:29 pm
just like i like them…very girly and fragile…delicious
May 30, 2007 at 9:00 pm
i love her hair, so beautiful
June 14, 2007 at 9:41 am
It’s only getting on and off that poses a challenge to a girl’s dignity. Also a stiff wind, but otherwise skirts don’t pose too big a barrier to decorum ;)
June 15, 2007 at 5:12 pm
I love how European girls look fashionable without trying too hard. With most American girls looking nice means they are really trying their best to look nice. It don’t get it!
January 28, 2008 at 4:19 pm
I think she’s a ballerina…given the way she places her feet.
February 22, 2008 at 9:49 am
Nice picture and very nice bike.
It’s one of those “Gazelle” bikes that are currently rather popular among young girls over here.
btw: there is no problem in riding a bike with a dress/skirt of that length. It wears like shorts if you fix it between your legs.
August 3, 2008 at 1:27 pm
She is lovely! I’ve been to Köln – on a romantic weekend, no less, and lots of lovely lasses – and lads – of her type. (Romantic interest also cycles but of course more closely resembles the Milanese gentlemen cycling on this blog).
I don’t get the “fragile” comment though. She looks lithe and athletic.
As for the shift/mumu thing, once on the bicycle the breeze would more clearly define her shape. Too tight a belt is uncomfortable cycling, even if slim.
I wear skirts cycling all the time, though I’m old enough to be that girl’s mum (and have never been tall and blonde, mannaggia!) so they are a bit longer. It is no problem. And while I certainly don’t flash, I don’t get my knickers in a knot if someone should see a bit of them for a microsecond – no more exposure than a swimsuit.
Red ones are nice ;-).
August 23, 2008 at 4:04 am
Do Europeans ever get their bikes stolen? I live in Taipei and you can only have ugly, beat up bikes otherwise they get stolen. Very frustrating.
April 14, 2009 at 9:50 pm
Note to self: Move back to Europe.
July 22, 2009 at 12:17 pm
hey cool blog –i just wrote a blog about dutch bicycles if you want to check it out
