She looks familiar and is she wearing vintage Commes or Yohji? It’s so refreshing to see a completely different silhouette after the the baby dolls and tailored ensembles. I love that you focus on originality and not on what’s currently deemed “fashionable” or “on trend”.
How hilarious. This is the most personally inspiring picture I’ve seen in months, and no one else has anything to say. So I’ll say it — this is a great example of a simple garment designed to feature the entire human being. It’s not about her figure, her weight, her hair, her makeup, the colors, the flash. It’s simply about the human being that she is- she looks strong and courageous simply for her ability to go without all the bells and whistles. THIS is what I aspire to. She’d fit in everywhere, and never fade into the background. Very Zen.
OH MY GOODNESS. I’m shocked that so many people like this! (This is too dangerous to be a garbage collector’s uniform. It’s too loose– it would get caught on something and drag her into the compactor.) I really, really don’t like this…any of it. Well, she has nice hair. But any outfit that deletes the bust entirely and involves massive, sagging pockets is not a good thing.
I was going to say the usual thing about needing a good bra – but since one side’s flat I think that a banana in her pocket.
I find the blouse section unflattering and total overkill with the volume of the pants, and would take some scissors to the sleeves. Maybe make a halter-jumpsuit -or like… aproned pants? Overalls I guess but not. And loosen the ankle-pucker. Heh – I better stop before it turns into a bikini!
I love reverance for the post-apocolyptic views of the early 80′s and the minimalism of the early 90′s. She holds her own in this outfit. I love anyone who takes risks or follows thier fashion vision. THat is why Banana Republic is SO good for everyone else!!! Jamesy
Sonja Nuttall, huh? Now I’m curious and I would like to see her designs but it ain’t easy. Well it’s too bad her website is not up to take advantage of this lil’ bit of free publicity. I see she has been around for a while though.
Her name is Sonja Nuttall and she's a very inspirational designer. I'm very drawn to her perspective on life and her minimalist designs. She is currently the Creative Director at Urban Zen and designs these really cool watches made of upcycled materials for 12 3 6 9.
