i am loving all the earth-toned plaids I’m seeing on the streets this season. Very pretty with the grey and I’m feeling the black boots too. But that fur… we’ve progressed enough to not need to kill for the sake of fashion.
Look, her whole outfit is a gradient: it starts warm and organic at the top with fur, then an earth tone plaid poncho that blends into more modern/ technological, definitely colder denim, and finally those sleek black boots. I love it, can you tell?
Speaking of depression era… there’s something about this that seems very Old Hollywood – maybe it’s her Louise Brooks-style black bob combined with the opulent fur stole over fringed plaid that gets me thinking of black-and-white movies about the Old West or Great White North. That’s from the waist up – waist down it’s all very current. Wonder if you have to be European to pull off such a great mix – or maybe American?? I’d love to know which she is ….
The textures are definitely very classic, but the cut is not. That is what makes her attire so attractive. The pants and the boots are young without looking to casual, and the coat paired with the stole make the whole thing adult. The juxtaposition of old and young looks so deliberate that gives her a sense of “creative authority”.
