i “didn’t get” this picture until i enlarged it. beautiful girl, such a lovely gentle expression. love her coat– really glamorous spin on the parka. picks up the lovely golden hues of her dress underneath.
The grey thights matched with the black shoes and the bag from Balenciaga look fine as always. There is just a bit too much of scarf around her neck and IÂŽm not fond of the coat either. Nice girl though.
I love this photo, Sart. The jacket, the billowy scarf, the tights/leggings, this is such a great look. Of course the lady here herself is exceptionally beautiful, IMVHO, so I don’t see how you could have gone wrong. I would be interested to see the curious (I mean intriguing!) pattern on her frock. Well executed.
your blog, signore sartorialist, reminds me of design [actually for me, architectural] school’s crit sessions– ‘TRUTH’ lies somewhere in the combination of many ‘truths’ expressed. best of all, you provoke and challenge orthodoxies, rules, standards re: our visual and consumer culture.
i love the fact that many questions are left at that… would love to see you as a guest on PROJECT RUNWAY [another forum about the creative process and the visual arts]. seriously.
I notice all tights are gray. Her dress is intriguing. The pattern and slate blue/gray is beautiful. I agree that the coat doesn’t do anything. But these make-upless women w/ beautiful skin are refreshing.
very cute. i’m noticing grey tights in these ny photos. it normally takes a while for fashion and trends to make their way west to san francisco (where i live). this look would be very appropriate for this city, though. tights, rain coat, color.
true this photo needs enlarging for true appreciation- the pattern on the dress is amazing and pulls it all together. love the girly dress/ gritty coat combination. where is the scarf from? i’ve been looking for one as generous as that for aaaages.
I love this look. I love how the coat and scarf look like they don’t work with the pieces underneath while at the same time being perfectly balanced with them. The coat is a proper length for the skirt and it is bulky, which balances it with the scarf and the bag. The shoes, the bag, and the scarf all work together without being matchy.
Samantha Traina is a very kind and gracious young woman. I sold her an Avedon book in San Francisco when she was about 18yrs old. She’s got the taste of her chic mother, Danielle Steele – and the heart of a humble Buddha.
Wow, here outfit is perfect from head to toes. My eyes go immediately to her ankle strap shoes, which I have (for no lucid reason) never worn because I think they are not flattering to my body, not tall enough I think. But when I look at her, the shoes are the first place I go.
And her jacket, wonder if its warmer than mine?
