I love the ensemble in the top photo–the belt and the simple neckline and cuffless wrist seem to balance each other out. Minimalism and romance, formality and comfort, very nice, and nice calm mood in the photo. So many of your subjects look totally relaxed.
I don’t know if they are staff/editors, or even if they’re wearing the label (I’m not clued up enough for that) but these women are a good example of why I like Calvin Klein. The camaieu of black/grey, the loose chic, the different shapes, especially the first top. It’s not OTT yet it’s striking.
I agree about the belt. The front pleats are nice in the top skirt. The top look is interesting because the bottom piece looks “rich” and the upper piece looks elegant but also looks like a uniform. A grey plain uniform with modern sleeves.
There’s a discount chain store selling the bell-sleeved blouse in a delicate dove gray and a sultry steely blue for less than $30. I passed on it yesterday because I couldn’t imagine it on. I’ll be going back tomorrow.
slightly (just slightly) underwhelmed by these two, but oh my-my-my-my-my that series of portraits on style! lauren hutton, wow! ditto carine roitfield yesterday. and the umbrella shots. i don’t know how you do it, but please don’t stop. this stuff is better than, um, chocolate?
I disagree about the need for hair cuts. What is up with wanting to see the same hair style in different women?. This women work in the fashion industry and they have fantastic, sexy hair!(Cues that they don’t need a hair cut). Who’s hair would be appropriate?
hi scott, i just wanted to say that the pictures that you took at calvin klein, especially the ones on style.com, reminded me greatly of horst’s portraits. i really loved your photo of lauren hutton especially, who, to me, is very beautiful.
As a young twenty-something man, I am fascinated with your pictures of ladies “of a certain age.” I’m glad you’ve been taking more pictures.
As someone who grew up in a California suburb (and even now as I live and work in L.A.), I am surrounded with “trendy” and youth-oriented women’s styles. The post-modern aimlesness and disposability of it all was burning me out. Your site is one of the few places where I can see women with personal style that are proud of their wealth of experience. It’s inspiring! KEEP IT UP!
I think both are attractive women, but their hair is not so fantastic. The first one has thin hair and the second needs some layering to accentuate the curl. No one said anything about giving them the same haircut.
(This is addressed to the person who is defending their hair.)
That first woman is amazing. Love that sleeve. I tried the Marc version on but it just didn’t fit at all. Someone wrote that they saw that sleeve in a discount store: which one? The belt is great,too. Sartorialist, please don’t forget to keep shooting ‘regular’ stylish people, too. The show and fashion people are fine, but what I love most about your site is your eye on the everyday folk who stand out on the street. They are what distinguish you from just being a(nother) mag.
