The way her dress is billowing in the wind, the bare feet with a touch of polish, the warmth of a secret garden (if only in my mind – It’s like she’s staring into my soul. Favourite photo yet. Pure brilliance.
This pic just makes me feel the soft wind, lets me smell the fresh flowers and the new green leafs on the trees. She looks pure and ethereal. Great dress, only the waistbelt avoids that she just flies away…
She reminds me of an oleander bloom, or hibiscus… everyone who has been to the south of france in early spring knows what I mean.
Glad to see how nice the weather was at the Hyeres Photo Festival while we were freezing in New York! If anyone wants to read about last year’s winner of the photography competition, go to: http:theyearinpictures.net
It’s so funny that you and Garance Dore both have photos of Louise in the same outfit, twice! Garance Dore also had her in the gray socks and green (?) shoes and black dress outfit. I like this girl a lot–she’s just lovely.
Oh, Sart! These pictures from the South of France are magical. Hypnotic. They make me want to forget who I am and go to be whoever I would be if I were there. Louise is a vision from sheer imagination, and I don’t even want to say what imaginations spring up at the sight of Mr. Ackermann, there! Sheesh!
These are people whose clothes seem to be as much a part of them as their own skins are, and it’s as if they’ve made pieces and refractions of that amazing light into something to wear! Thank you so much for posting these.
Wow, wow – I was in awe the moment I saw the photo, quite a breath of fresh air (in this stale office!). Everything is beautiful/perfect – the colors, the dress, the girl, and the lighting (the sourroundings and her dress) is exquisite. Anonymous at 4:00 am put it well “a vision in color”. My favorite photo of yours so far. Thank you!
This woman is just the epitome of glamor and elegance without looking like she tried. Absolutely beautiful. Frankly, all the photos you’ve posted from the South of France have been out of this world. What a good batch!
It’s interesting to compare the photo of this girl here with the photo of her on garancedore. She looks so different! Here she looks so poetic and beautiful, on garancedore she looks so cute and quirky. I hope the boho look comes back – it’s so feminine.
Now here is one fine example where a cigarette would ruin the photograph. I’m sad to admit that, as most of the time, the addition of a cigarette is just another detail in the photo and the wardrobe. I believe it would take away from the purity and beauty of this shot, as its not necessarily a ‘fashion photo’. Excellent work.
I do not love this dress. It’s appealing in a 70s Loulou de la Falaise – Yves Saint Laurent – Jacqui Getty – Marrakech – cloudy smoke mystic glamorous way, but it’s not very flattering for her, and she is quite beautiful. The bottom falls nicely on her, but the top is just wrong, I think.
