What I love about this is that it puts gender and newness aside and emphasizes quality. I also love the idea of a short story about characters that are connected across time and space by way of the clothes they wear.
Absolutely gorgeous winter shot, with falling snow. She looks happy, with a healthy glow and
a great coat never really goes out of style. Collars can be changed by covering with updated scarves or other accessories.
I’ve always been on the border about unisex dressing, but this coat pushes me towards an outstanding yes! Both have a very neutral palette. I don’t have a preference towards more layered up or down, though I do love her furry collar and his casual shades look. A timelessly great coat can’t be upstaged.
Also good to know that there are other people out there who have a keen memory for what they have seen years previous. I still to this day remember outfits I wore 10+ years ago, or clothing I saw that changed my life.
I’m obsessing over this photo combination…The coat itself is wonderful, and the twin images makes for such an interesting twist! (plus, her ability to wear so many layers and remain so stylishly cool and collected is impressive. I generally feel like a balloon)…
Sometimes when I get complimented on my memory, I get defensive over how NOT good my memory is; rather, what I remembered is just so perfectly indelible. Whatever the case for your remembrance, I’m so glad you did because those two images and that one coat … just, fuck. Wow.
I own that coat!! Wore it today. Bought it last year (for $50!!!) in a Canadian discount store (the Runway section of Winners for those Canadians out there!) – there was no label – but i could tell from the feel of the fabric and the lining that it was well made. Amazing that over a year later this thread tells me its Miu Miu. Happy day! This post made my day and I’m thrilled to be in such chic company!
I would disagree with some and say that the guy is rockin’ a little harder than the girl – mainly because I haven’t seen many guys so well dressed and good looking at the same time! But the first picture is magical! Love all the expressions you catch, each picture is personal but also connects with the audience (and of course, has so much style).
The first photo is really natural perfection! I’m laughing though at the people complimenting you on your memory. I’m sure your memory is great, but you’ve recently been going through photos for your book and looking for pairings, so I’m guessing this popped up!! :) Either way, cool pair. At first I thought you were trying to show someone in fashion wearing the same coat two years on…(!) :) and I was going to comment that the rest of us in the real world tend to wear our coats for five years or many more, if they are of good quality!
If I’m not mistaken, that fur bandana scarf is from a handmade collection, by an artisan at aportashop.com. The scarves are really rare, and ultra awesome. They sell out as soon as she can produce them. I love both of these images. Honestly, both of these looks are fantastic.
