And on a rainy day, at that. Gutsy…and gorgeous.

I love this shot, in which I see an illustration of how the adaptation of a suit-style jacket to the body can become a part of feminine style. As an aspiring “sartorialista” (if the female counterpart could be named in Italian as well as the French “sartorialiste”), I can’t help noticing that the suit and its accessories are the basis for a really great discussion about what style means, that belongs almost exclusively to menswear. The discussion of female style usually has a completely different set of references.
Hooray for the “shrunken jacket” recently mastered by certain designers! But how often does something as small as a pocket square make a woman’s look come together? I’m envious!
In that spirit I love the placement of the top button which this woman has deployed expertly. Her suit has a life of it’s own–it’s not reduced to a concept like “androgyny” (nothing against androgyny, though). Brava.

I believe that if you live in NYC as I do, as opposed to just visiting, you wouldn’t think of so much dirt-prone white. She looks great…but not for long!
One of my favorite NYC jokes: Q – Do you know why New Yorkers always wear black? A – They’re just waiting for something darker to come along! – JCH

love the all white! her skin looks beautiful with it! can’t believe she is wearing it on a rainy day…if i did that the bottom of my pants would be all muddy!
September 18, 2006 at 12:05 pm
It looks great. Very daring on a rainy day…
September 18, 2006 at 12:06 pm
one of my favourite outfits! plus, i love white! crisp white suit with subtle gold buttons…nice.
white shoes as well??
September 18, 2006 at 12:24 pm
One thing for sure: she is gutsy. To wear white on a rainy day and with such a flair… not for everyone.
September 18, 2006 at 2:56 pm
Ahhh….white….i’m in love with this colour.I definitely think it´’s the new black.This woman looks soo glamorous !!

looks like someone you would give up your umbrella to for sure. And split a couple bottles of red with and see where it all leads. Great Style.

Stunning. Simply stunning. I have to get a white suit for my graduation.
September 18, 2006 at 11:33 pm
White on a rainy day after Labor Day?Not sure how I feel about that.
September 19, 2006 at 1:35 am
I have been reading your blog for the past few months and am a huge fan. I especially love the pictures! :)
About the photo..I thought one was not supposed to wear white after Labor Day?
September 19, 2006 at 9:33 am
On a rainy day?! Double wow!
September 19, 2006 at 11:00 am
wow she looks hot! The umbrella gives the feeling of a balmy summer storm.
September 19, 2006 at 12:12 pm
that is sade!!! she’s perfect, i love her
September 19, 2006 at 4:35 pm
There is nothing more stunning than white. You can put a woman in a red dress…you can wrap a hot pink pashmini around your neck…one could even wear a plunging to the belly neckline…but in my opinion, the woman in white will draw the eye fifty times over. Paint that white into a menswear inspired suit or tux and you’re shot gorgeously by The Sartorialist. Brilliant how the most ‘non-color’ color can be so sexy, stylish and eye-catching. Simply beautiful…
September 19, 2006 at 4:39 pm
that’s about as classic as it gets. lovin the whole darn thing.
September 19, 2006 at 6:22 pm
I hope this picture finally kills that inane “rule” about wearing white after Labor Day.
September 19, 2006 at 11:09 pm
i think your caption is perfect for this photo! just wow :)
September 20, 2006 at 1:27 am
Cute, but impractical. At least she has an umbrella.
September 20, 2006 at 4:54 pm
the white beauty! gotta love it!! the gold buttons on that suit-style jacket add to the polished look, and give it an extra touch of elegance. All enhanced by her tone of skin and body.great shot!
September 20, 2006 at 6:56 pm
who cares about labour day?Her look is absolutely gorgeous. I’m going to have to buy a white suit.
September 21, 2006 at 10:49 am
ditto that WOW!
September 21, 2006 at 6:12 pm
She probably had a car waiting for her. When you’re rich you can wear outrageously uncomfortable or impractical things like that because there’s a car waiting to whisk you away to wherever

She is pulling off a Halle Berry thing but she is even prettier than Halle Berry.
September 22, 2006 at 1:18 pm
Love the rise on the pant.
September 24, 2006 at 7:34 pm
The perfect Storm…
