I love this. Its modern, and very chic. The matching is very brave. I agree, the Gucci stripe is the best. The comments here are pretty much exactly what I expected. People should try this experiment;
Go look at the older posts in the Sartorialist going waaay back. Read the comments. Its very wonderful how well Scott perfectly captures directions in fashion, but he also captures pretty outfits that showcase a passing trend. Ok, here is the interesting part; The pictures that get the most raving complements on this blog are almost always the ones that look the most glaringly out of style. It NEVER fails! The outfits that still look perfectly modern and fresh eight years later are usually the ones where only a few people loved them, but most people didn’t. The outfits people rave about and find so fresh are almost always the ones that loo extremely dated. I think THIS will be a perfect example of the former. This will be a look that will look even better in about five years.
Maria…very interesting experiment and very true!
This is the Hermes stripe…and it’s not anywhere near the Gucci stripe which at the moment is going through a great new creative make over, while staying true to the original stripe…kindda like the classic Chanel jacket which gets restyled over and over and again and again by KL…(who btw is way passed his sell by date!)
