    Those two are nailing the casual white trousers look in their own way! I especially like her take on it, the discreet silkiness of her wide trousers bring a luxurious element that make it work.

      Well, we are at least two of us: I find these pants very ugly and unbecoming.

      nope – not the only one! i can appreciate her being ‘different’ and not dressing like everyone else, but this photo actually makes me feel really uncomfortable for some reason.

      You are not the only one. I agree that the photo captures a sentimental moment, but the fashion is horrible. Pants and tank are ill-fitting. They are wearing her not the other way around. As for him,the look is nothing special.

      Tenderness supported by unstructured clothes – its the soft merging of human sentiment and relaxed fabric we’re being shown here rather than fashion.

    • Dorothy Chartrand

      September 13, 2012 at 2:40 pm

      You’re right! This outfit is horrible…Taking effortless casual look too seriously pehaps… Or is this the last of her clean clothing just before laundry day?

    I’m glad Alyssia | The Sartorialist posted a link to another shot of the couple where she looks stylish.

    In this particular photo, he looks great – breezy and casually chic. Not a fan of her outfit, though – I absolutely cannot stand the droopy sports-themed look, and I know those pants could look very elegant – but here they look like sweatpants.

    Beautiful moment, hideous clothing on both. I get so tired of seeing people on the street who dress for going about their business in attire that should be relegated the privacy of their own homes, where they can look as scruffy as they please and not offend the rest of us visually!!!!!

    AhHh, I love this. Those pants with that shirt on the girl, she looks so cool. And then of course I love his hand on her cheek, so sweet.


  63. Tat

    September 11, 2012 at 6:46 pm

    Both of their outfits could be viewed as androgynous. It is an interesting caputre. Her energy seems more masculine, and his more feminine.

    September 11, 2012 at 7:04 pm

    wow, so much criticism… i like the look of these two. the floral embroidery on the jersey is cool, and i really like her pants – the wide hem, the looseness, the fabric. i’d wear them in a heartbeat.

  73. une chatte grise

    September 12, 2012 at 3:31 am

    He looks sharp! I’d really like her look too if the pants were a little less huge on her–the extra fabric at the thigh and the huge cuffs make the pants hang awkwardly.

    I personally love her look, she carries it off.

    But I really am not sure about the relationship between the man and girl. Is he her father? The touch of her cheek looks a tad proprietorial, like he’s chiding her and she looks uncomfortable or resigned. Something about it makes me feel sad.
