Oh that girl… she is perfection. She makes fur work for her age and brings it straight out of the ‘vintage’ look that fur is often associated with when worn by the younger generation. The flash of red is also genius.
The mix of high and low that Scott wrote about here reminds me of a photo that was included in the first book. There is a lovely woman wearing a cashmere coat with a synthetic anorak underneath. Their ages, pallettes and style are polar opposites, however both women are very gorgeous and very chic, in accordance with their personal vision of creating looks.
I love this too! It’s like the shot you posted previously of the woman in all denim with dressy shoes and camel coat. It’s all in the mix that reveals your style.
I also totally agree with Simbarashe – I’d like to see hoodies elevated. I have a couple of furs, one given to me and another that belonged to my grandmother. I rarely wear them for fear of judgement – something I normally don’t care about. Weird.
I’ve got my grandmother’s fur jacket in my closet…now I know how to wear it! Make it contemporary with the color pop of a red hat and a hoodie. Thanks Sartorialist! First, I dug out the leopard print faux fur jacket my sister gave me years ago…now it’s time to do the same with my grandmother’s fur.
Love this look, and this photo! So much in good design and music today is a mash up of two seemingly incongruous things, but when you hear or see them you instantly love their pairing. She is gorgeous and brilliant to put this look together: Sophisticated but totally approachable and fun.
The confidence is palpable. Sometimes it is hard to believe there is so much beauty out there…you bring a smile to my face today. And for some reason I think she has a very sweet granny that gave her the fur.
She is gorgeous which is why she can pull that look. Do people seriously think that they can pull off that combination if they looked just average…I don’t think so. : ) And I still prefer that she did not associate the hoodie with that beautiful fur.
W0w, I love this. Too often in fashion you see people walking around in clothes that one might wear to some extravagent event, and all they are doing is their grocery shopping. I think it’s amazing to see something that kind of brings the concept of fashion and still being fashionable, down to earth a bit. I think the hoodie is a fantastic addition to the outfit – and where can I get myself one of those coats!
well… to say the truth I’m not a big fan of that look : hoodie+fur+uggs= typical moscow style of winter 2011
and the look is no more of originality when everybody is the same
this year it’s parka and beanie EVERYWHERE
I think she looks great! I used to wear very similar looks with vintage furs I bought from thrift shops back in college – early ’70s! I’d wear them until they fell apart, then go back for another the next winter.
I know its risky to defend fur, but I think there is not enough info about the subject. To illustrate my point, the red fox is a great example. In Australia it represents a serious problem because it is harmful to native mammal and bird populations and its listed among the worst invasive species.
I personally love how it looks, and how warm it keeps you in the winter, but it sure seems cruel at first hand to kill an animal to dress. But nobody talks about veal leather, and its the same thing, only a different animal, right?
