I admire this young lady’s eye for detail – the way her necklace pics up on her knitted cloche , the ruby red lipstick and the arrangment of her fringe (bangs). Love her skirt, in fact love her whole unique look.
Whenever you post someone like this, I always imagine they must be the little people behind the runway that make the magic happen. It looks like she deconstructed the sweater herself, I like how we can see the inside of the construction- it is not just a rip, it is even on both sides. The colors she picked pretty much mimic your man at Prada, below. My favorite piece in this outfit are the punk heels, it looks like she has gotten her money out of them: I always love a well-worn pair of high quality shoes. Jorge from W Palm Beach.
Even though she looks intriguing, the level of curiosity of her surrounding surpasses her just slightly. the geometric shapes, the color, the confusion on where this was taken.
I understand mrsartorialist had the best intention to use this background for the subject at hand, the model, but I can’t change the fact that the flight of stairs and the 4 story building jump at me more.
I love the way she uses contrasts: the delicate necklace vs the chunky shoes, and the shape/texture of the sweater vs the skirt (which I really love). And this is one of the best ways to wear red lipstick: with somber colors and natural eye makeup.
This is such a perfect photograph. Not only is the background and lighting great but the subject did a wonderful job styling the outfit. Great boots! If you ever need help in Milan, Sat my man, let me know…
the yellow building in the background really makes this shot. i know this isn’t a photo blog (per se), but if you put this same woman in front of a brown-brick wall, she’d be just *ok*. in this environment though, she seems to be popping off the screen. only change i might make is to reduce the depth of field by a small amount to make the shape of the background slightly less distinct. it’s the colors that really provide the pop, not the details of the shapes, imo.
My Valeria!! We shared a summer of French in Paris last year. She is as charming as she looks and cooks the most delicious risotto. But didn’t she tell you about the fashion blog she used to co-curate?
I envy all the northerners that appear on this blog in skirts and opaque tights and cute, quirky shoes and layered tops… It’s my favorite look ever and it’s NEVER appropriate in my part of FL. You people with your “four distinct seasons” nonsense! :c
Yet another gorgeous shot. For me, this look goes hand in hand with the best interior design. Similar tones and shades, with the differences being in the textures and surfaces. A look that gets your attention, without a loud print or color!
**HER BOOTS (AS WELL AS THE ONE OF THE TEEN VOGUE EDITORS ARE FROM SEYCHELLES AND ONLY $59 AT CENTURY 21 FOR ALL YOU NEW YORKERS” THEY COME IN BLACK AND BROWN, I OWN THEM BOTH! THEY LOOK FAR MORE EXPENSIVE THAN THEY ACTUALLY ARE!**
GREAT POSE, GREAT CONTAST BETWEEN HER CLOTHERS AND HER BACKGROUND, GREAT SHOT!
ironically, i found these amazing boots at Century 21 the day BEFORE this post went up and now i feel like a genius. best $59 i ever spent. i only wish i had purchased a second pair as backup…but sadly i imagine that they’re all gone since so many new yorkers do a daily sart check!
I have that exact necklace! A well meaning visiting Italian relative gave it to me years ago, and I’ve never really got any wear out of it (whilst simultaneously feeling guilty about not wearing it as it’s white gold). Design solution! Heart.
I love her. Whoever she is, she is so far beyond…. very smart, very mysterious, very "works" her look and yet a little unmindful of it. Every piece she has on is meant to have a reference and some people who don't think postmodernist might fall into the trap of taking everything for its connotation, as if she's being ironic, but the sharp mind sees her clothes for what they are sans their history. She's not costuming.
