What an idiosyncratic pair – they’re certainly not model clones. Here’s a funny trick; block off the bottom half of the pic and you get two slouchy girls. Block the top, two elegant ladies. Perhaps this tension makes the outfits intriguing.
i enjoy the long-sweater-skirt look, if its done well. it’s definitely possible to cross over into total 80s redux/American Apparel nightmare, but if its done well, i think the play on proportions and visual expectation is great.
I guess harem pants are back. We saw it at MJ and now here in this photo. Not an easy look for a woman with hips but it’s good to spice things up with a new shape versus all the stovepipes out there. Love her friend’s Mary Janes and what looks like a grey wool quilted Chanel bag.
I love this blog when it shows what interesting people on the street wear while going about their daily business. I don’t find myself the least bit interested in photos of fashion show attendees or executives. More shots from everyday life, please!
“Your photos are wonderful..as are the people in them. And it’s because of that that I could never appear in your blog, because, despite my efforts, and though I love fashion, I always have the allure of a tuna!”
The one in black looks so frumpy- it’s funny to me that her outfit probably cost many $100s of dollars when she looks so similar (aside from her shoes) to a lot of middle-aged ex-hippie women who buy their clothes at Chico’s or something.
But if she were a 16-year-old model, harem pants still wouldn’t be flattering. They’re eternally ugly. (And I appreciate seeing non-models as well.)
i love your website and the pictures are fantastic.
it just makes me wonder, though, looking at these fashion insiders exactly why it is that almost everyone is caucasian or of european descent. as an young asian person i wonder why there aren’t more people of colour in the fashion/media industry considering that cities such as New York and London are so diverse.
the lady says : the pics great!!! the people…also, that’s why (and this is the real cruelty of nature), despite all her efforts, cause she loves fashion, she’ll always have the allure of a really yummy fish…….. oh lady pls lighten up, it’s just fucking clothes!!!!
anonymous at 4.43pm, I’m really not sure what 4.42pm said, but babelfish translates it as: “GOOD YOUR PHOTOGRAPHS ARE SPLENDID; people too. and it is for Ca that I could never appear in your blog, because malgres my efforts, because I like the fashion, I always have the pace of a tuna…..grrr”
in this photo, i love the grey/black/neutral geometric squares and rectangles in the foreground of the 2 girls, the car, the street, with the hit of the red rectangle of red from the girl’s jacket in the background left. this is like another painting. sart, your photos are getting more and more amazing…
Ooops: in the translation of anon 4:42, above, I incorrectly gave “allure” For the similar French “allure.” The latter translates more appropriately as “bearing,” which makes the original comment much funnier (and, to me at any rate, less painful!)
