Above the waist is very nice. His tights and her pants are a mistake, and her shoes have an icky foot-binding vibe – I think it comes from the short distance between toe and heel and the very low sole.
With all due respect, I'm sorry, CW, but I'm inclined to disagree with you.
He pulls this ensemble off with such flair and confidence that any missteps he might have made (I see none, as the case may be – he looks incredibly chic, in a nontraditional way) should be forgiven. The proportions are correct, the layering is genius, the various shades and textures of black all work together, and even the 30's/40's American Industrial-style boots (they really evoke images of a chimney sweep or a factory worker for me) seem to work in harmony with the rest of the pieces. His slick, almost seductive grin is a perfect finishing touch. His partner's ensemble is simply flawless, IMO. From the effortless drape of her scarf, to the chic layering (read: single-button blazer under leather & fur bomber), and her pleated pant. The pump is marvelously elegant – detailed, yet simple. Her frame and even the cut of her hair tie it all together.
Scott, the idea to capture the both of them in black & white (and slightly off center – was this intentional???) is brilliant. It makes the image all the more striking.
what are those shoes???! they actually look like you could walk in them…and not just sit and look pretty. i'm always on the lookout for shoes you can walk in that aren't flat and those are pretty great.
the coolest couple in new york. I love that their style is truly their own, not appropriating for another group, not the lastest trend and yet is there anyone who not admire then. love that he is rocking the shorts, leggings and boots. He is cool and in control and she is his equal in every way.
I have to say… it is not an easy thing to decide who is gonna be on this blog and who simply wont…. cuz u have to have the eyes to notice a detail .. anything that changes our concepts… and maybe this person is walkin in the same sidewalk as we are… but the routine… blinds us…how can u miss the oportunity to be someone who you are dying to be… a chance to exagerate..a chance to express urself when ur afraid …. so i would like to thank mr Scott.. for showin us ..what we are missin… along our days….cuz this is not garment only… this is lifestyle… this is happinnes…this is personality… and if ur not visible enough to be in this blog…. well… that means u have to show urself to the world….
