Now that’s a more realistic look for India! The previous one in tights were so out of place with the weather here.
I have been following your blog the last few months and always felt that the people you shoot were just too well dressed to be floating around on the streets. I think the India pictures are definitely far more realistic and closer to everyday life than the rest. Loving them!
Simply amazing photo and style. Sart, you’ve made me notice women’s fashion like I never have before. I was always style conscious for myself and menswear, but the combo of your site and a great season of Project Runway has taken my appreciation for women’s wear to a new level. Thank you.
Great picture – I love her waistcoat and the proportions of her top and bottom – she rocks the trousers and that hair. I love your pictures from India – as an Indian living in London, I love how contemporary these pics are. And beautiful.
Can’t help but notice you picked 2 fashionistas in a city of millions and posted two images each of them. No doubt they are great shots but can’t help but ponder what fashion statements are made each day on the streets of Delhi by real people.
Interesting how this is hippie/boho chic, but when you think about it, the original inspiration for Western hippie chic comes, at least in part, from India. I’d love to know where she found these clothes, and/or who designed them? In any case, I love every aspect of this outfit, and I’d wear it entirely.
Ah, what a difference. These baggy trousers are fabulous. And the details of the vest are stunning. This is one of my favorite looks from India because I could easily see myself emulating this style and feeling comfortable and attractive.
In colors that otherwise would have blended into the background, the citrus green and yellow enhance the details of her shirt and patttern of her capris, equating to a beautifully scenic picture. The tree works in the same manner as well!
Awesome. I love the loose, casual pants paired with the detailed top and heeled shoes. Great contrast! People in India are seriously stylish. And these are some of the absolute best pictures I’ve ever seen on this blog (well, I like all of them, but these are some of my favorites).
Good lord this woman is stunning! She was in the first shot as well, but in a completely different way. I love that she is wearing the same sandals and similar menswear-type bottoms but in a totally different look. She’s amazing. Gorgeous hair and fabulous embelleshed vest.
Wow, you know sometimes I don’t always agree that the hodgepodge of clothes works in some of the photos. Not here. This works. In such an effortless and beautiful way. I love the drops of colors and her long flowing hair. This is an amazing photo.
these pictures from new delhi are so gorgeous, thank you for sharing them with us: i feel as though their use of colour and the different shapes the fabric makes of the clothes makes the fahsion so much more organic than in north america…
their clothes (from what i know) don’t scream a certain designer… but they rival any new yorker…
The textile design of the top is a variation of the design which was called “Miriam Makeba” in N.E. Congo during the sixties of the 20th century. In many parts of Africa each extile design had its own name. Very likely this still is the case.
Her eyes are piercing in their intensity, without appearing angry or malevolent. She has the eyes of an icon (as in Orthodox iconography). You may have taken photos of her for the world to look at, but it is she who is looking at us. Visceral and a bit surreal.
Thank you for capturing fashion and style in rising countries. I’ve been to Southeast Asia this past winter and the women from Bangkok to Ho Chi Minh City proved that original style transcends money and designer names.
I very much appreciate your blog and your work. It is a true inspiration to me.
I am amazed with your latest shots taken in India and I think it is a very positive contribution to the diversity on your blog. However I am curious about your motivation to use the same model again. Why did you do this and are you planning to do this more often? I wonder about how much these photo’s are prepared and how much control you take in them. Although they are very nice shots it loses spontaneity and becomes fashion photography as known from magazines etc.
I love the composition of this photograph. Rich colours in the background. Beautiful movement of the hair, gorgeous face and top. Not really feeling the shoes, but overall, I couldn’t stop looking at this photo for a while.
Life is beautiful and your photos are so full of life. When I see them I canÂŽt help but think that we have to fight for our individuality. At last that’s what defines us, what creates our style. Your work reminds me that I have to stay true to myself, to my taste, to my heart. Thank you, Scott! Living in a third world country sometimes kills my fashion thoughts, but then you appear and make me want to dream a little bit higher!
Her free relaxed style comes through, and her hair in the wind adds to this care-free feel.. I like how she paired everything together mixing in traditional items, and I love how her pants are gathered like that..
I think the fact that you’ve used the same person twice shows your keen eye for individuality and your sense of taste. The way people antagonize you for your choices irks me and I question why they follow your blog. Just show them what’s up Sart and keep doing your own thing. I like to call these people “haters” and right now I’m “hatin’” on them.
