The pale blue jacket and the high water pants with men┬┤s hat – I got so homesick for Paris it hurts! The rainy asphalt and all those smiles on skinny legs. I┬┤ll be there again one day too! Thanks for widening the focus of fashion to include life and real people.
do we know Alt’s heritage? I find the shemagh (palestinian scarf) a fascinating choice – and wonder if it is harkening to her heritage, to Balenciaga F 07, or to just her unrivaled choice for the day? it’s been a hot topic of discussion amongst us in the office – inquiring minds want to know….
err, ms. photo #2 is amazing. that woman can work a wardrobe – you now have pictures of her with the same dress in two dif. ways and the same shoes in two dif. ways. who is she? i could read a blog on just her for days.
Now this is a collection.I┬┤m not saying I fancy their outfits in particular but if I had to choose,girl 2 has a very personal way of dressing and it suits her well.Her origin is exotic and petite and somehow white also in the fake fur vest looks fun on her.She also has a nice smile.There is something cute in the outfit of girl 5,although I believe she┬┤d look better by leaving something out.Now there is a bit too much of everything.I have noticed that black booties are very much ├Čn┬┤this season.Alone in this collection three girls are wearing them.
Hee, Hee. I entered the comments on this set of pics to see if anyone would mention the keffiyah. It’s interesting that this has become a fashion statement. I wear one around because I like the look but also because I am a human rights activist, thus the plight of Palestinians is a concern of my work. :) It is interesting to note the reactions I get. On the train, sometimes I will register someone glaring at me…..other times I will notice someone smiling warmly at me. Either way, the keffiyah never fails to get a reaction.
To Anonymous 12:02PM, I think you’re reading too much into Alt’s choice of scarf. In Europe – UK especially – try-hard/genuine indie kids have been wearing them for at least a year solid; 99% of the time with leather jackets. They’re everywhere, it’s quite irritating. I’m surprised someone as trendless as Alt (who is so amazing usually) would pick up something so generic.
what does it tell you about where fashion trends begin and where they end up in that the keffiyeh scarf Alt is wearing has been adorning the necks of every slightly cool, slightly hipster North London teenager for a good two years now. and now finally Carine’s right hand woman is wearing one.
Lol It’s true Anon 11:59, and all of their shoes have a reflection.. It’s very interesting how the middle guy in the 4rth photo layered a striped black and white t-shirt, dark grey blouse, and a black dotted cardigan
This set is fueled with young edgy attitude. Each individual here is etremely bold and adventurous in their elegant choices, many elements that hold them as fashion misfits meaning they’re surely trend setters.
i like the way the red-headed 20-something girl exudes Parisian chic hipness without resorting to the typical kitch overkill displayed by 20-something hipsters(maybe somebody knows what i mean by this)… didn’t that stud to the right of her used to model for GUESS? jeans? that woman beside him looks like ellen von unwerth?? esp love their starry Chanel booklets.
I love the gamine girl with the sweater dress, but put the shemagh away, please, lady in the first photograph! (I remember them from the first time round, and didn’t think it was a good look even then!)
Sart, Will you ever reveal who she is??? We know she is a photographer and everytime you snap her, she draws a great deal of response…have a reveal!!! I am thrilled to see her in her Converse again….She is a doll!!! Enjoy China…if you run into my buddy Josh also in the same area as you, have him buy you a drink on me, You deserve it!!! Cheers
oh these are priceless. it’s not that I’d wear any outfit exactly as is ( I wouldn’t) it’s the confidence with which they hold themselves that sells it. Oh… and the occasional Chanel tote that manages to make casual look fabulous ;)
I think the girl with the Chanel cuffs looks great. Normally I find that quilted bags looks stuffy aqnd dated (at least I feel that way), but she makes it look cool. And, maybe I am wrong, but the guy with her looks a lot like Nicholas Ghesquire (spelling?) of Balenciaga??
Wonderful shots. The first and last especially caught my attention. The woman in the first photo appears to have the longest legs in existence. The reflection of her black shoes in the puddle give the illusion of another foot of height!
