Nice photo. It makes me miss walking in the rain. I’m not sure why the chap on the left is in such a hurry. Perhaps he is worried the rain will clean his dreadlocks. In which case, he should consider purchasing a dreadsock. Just a suggestion. My knowledge of rasta ‘fashion’ is sadly deficient.
Very nice shot. You really get a sense of the down pouring of the rain, especially in the huched over woman. Plus, there’s something vaguely gratifying about seeing dampened sartorialists (though, I should hope that they have better umbrellas at home!).
the best thing is the umbrella. i’m sure we’ve all been walking around the city on a rainy day with nothing to protect us but the ubiquitous cheap umbrella from cvs (or duane reade for all you new yorkers) which of course breaks as soon as you open it. its comforting to know that even the most fashionable people at marni are just like us, sometimes.
This is SUCH a compelling photo. My goodness Sart, you are on fire – yes, even in the rain.
I love how the muted primary colour-blocking in the background provides a perfect background for the neutral-dressed duo. And the diagonal line where red meets yellow leads the eye to the amazingly off-centre mid-air sprinter.
I’m so enthralled and impresed by your work.
And the Marni card on the diagonal just perched in the woman’s hand is really too perfect.
I also love the way the two players look SO intent on getting into the show. It’s like they are posessed with desire to see the Marni show and not even grey skies and a rain shower can impede them on their separate missions to catch a first glimpse of Spring 08.
This leads me to another idea: part of what is so compelling about fashion is that it is always in the future, and therefore transportative.
When the Spring finally arrives and life may or may not bring all that we had hoped for, we can dreamily look at images of what the next Fall will look like and continue to entertain our illusions about what is possible, beautiful, and intellecutally fresh. Not to mention see impossibly beautiful and seemingly naive girls parade down a stage creating an other-worldy fantasy-scape for us to enjoy.
I love this shot. One of the best. It seems to be suspended in another time, like a kind of photografy in certain films as “The million dollar hotel” (with a spectacular Milla Jovovich). That “Marni” looks like a signature in the picture.
Hey! I know this guy, I saw him here in Brasil three days ago, he is in Itaparica island, and he still has those locks. He was so nice with me. He knows how to speak portuguese! He is so funny, but when I met him it was vacation time and he was at the beach, so how can he not be funny?? It was so hot and he was so casual and simple. I hope my english isn`t too bad, because I`m trying really hard to everybody understands me! Kisses from Brazil!
