Ahhh I live in Tunis and I rock these almost everyday during the summer. So easy to throw it on over a bikini, plus they are SUPER inexpensive considering it is part of the culture here to wear caftans.
Her name is Sonia Hassan.A beautiful Egyptian Sister of min e…. And you can buy her look on 125th Street in Harlem, NY. The African shops have been selling beautiful handmade pieces like this there for 25 years…..IWouldn’t it be amazing if this look came into fashion….
There is quite a split between those that love this look and those that hate it. I don’t think this piece of clothing would have gotten such a great response on a woman less stunning than she is. The shape and bright color really seem appropriate for that area of the country, though. Not something to be worn here in the Northwest still trudging through snow at the end of March.
This just doesn’t do it for me. Brings to mind my mum’s caftans. The fabric is lovely and so is the girl, I would just prefer to see her, perhaps in a bikini, posed in a chair with that fabric as the cover. But, then again, I’ve never been the South Beach type. But Sart, your photos are always the best.
I actually don’t really like it at all. maybe I just don’t really like caftans, and also it makes her feet look like those of a penguin. Yes, there’s my final thought: she looks like a tie-dyed penguin.
Sonia is a beautiful woman inside and out! She is also the face of HAJI Couture, a line of accessories which skillfully and artfully manipulates bird feathers into women’s adornments, such as the wrist cuff she is wearing. http://www.hajicouture.com
I'm from Miami, and a lot of what you see on South Beach has to do with turning heads. This would certainly accomplish that.
I'm not sure I could rock the shape and I would probably ditch those glasses in the ensemble – but I would definitely watch her walking down the sidewalk/poolside and think "That's different. That's cool." So she's good with me.
By the way, were you in Miami for the WMC/Ultra? I was walking around Ultra and actually thought to myself what you would capture in those crowds…It's always such a sight (good & bad).
I don’t like Miami fashion. Too laid back. I love New York and European fashion. I’m getting so much inspiration from the paris, florence, and milano pictures. They look so put together. I want to move to one of these cities after college.
In Malaysia, it's normal for the Malay women to wear this at home, even when sleeping! I kid you not… The material is made from cotton or silk and the prints are either floral or ethnic motifs called "batik"..
