Is his blazer sleeve short, or simply pushed up? This photo is actually one of my (very, very many) favourites. I think the woman (Anouk?) has a perfectly styled or balanced look: gracefully draped scarf, the perfectly fitted jeans in the perfect length, an elegant opened heel proving hosiery CAN look chic underneath, topped by a lesson in how a grey jacket can look as finished and ubiquitous as a black one.
To me, they are doing the ‘coordinated couple’ look without looking contrived.
The woman on the left looks so well put together, and the face of a cherub to boot. Not sure about what inspired the man to roll his sleeves up on his jacket. Maybe he was washing his hands and wet his shirt sleeves. I love his shoes (suede wingtips).
I like this high rolled sleeves jacket…it makes the jacket so fresh and new..; and I adore and am sticking to those suede wingtips. The girl’s look is all right: laid back stylish one The couple is in synch: mobile, jackets, gorgeous shoes La brigade de la Mode
For some reason I do not like her shoes and hose here, although the color of the shoes is good with the rest of her outfit. His look is almost too eccentric to critique- what to base it upon? I DO like the way they look together in the photo- that’s the most interesting thing about it!
That guy needs to really sort his act out. I think the worst dressed male ever on the sartorialist. Short sleeved jacket aside, the [faded black even!] jeans with the rest of the ensemble is inexcusable. And including the sunglasses he really has got nothing right.
When I see two people in a public space both using a mobile phone, I always imagine they are talking to each other on the phone…(a pretty frequent situation, in fact!) I like the little potential for absurdity in that situation.
Very, very lovely, although I may be biased because dark wash jeans + fitted jacket + scarf is my own personal favorite type of ensemble this time of year.
I have always, always hated nylons with open-toed shoes. I think it looks strange, and if you need to wear nylons with an outfit, odds are strappy heels are neither weather or occasion appropriate. Especially because the straps are sticking out. I agree with another poster that low boots would have really completed the look.
Other than that, I love the outfits, and I love the photo, especially because they’re both shifting their weight and just on the brink of movement.
Love her choice of clothes and the layering- her shoes don’t fit the rest of the look- would prefer some short boots- besides I’ve done myself the thin socks- open sandals thingy and my toes kept slipping in front of the shoes and on the steet…really difficult to make more than 5 steps…
I think her outfit is well put together, with the various shades of blue, the different patterns and weights of fabric. Moreover, everything fits very well. I agree with Dan 7:12 that I am not crazy about the shoes, but it may be the one item that pops. She sort of lost me on the bag, very Barnes & Noble, but I bet there is a reason! No comment on his outfit. Jorge from W Palm Beach
omg you guys must be kidding. just because they are CONSIDERED stylish doesn’t mean they really are. don’t you people have eyes? what the heck is stylish about this people? I mean, seriously, panty hose WITH SANDALS??? just because she’s a model doesn’t mean she can get away with everything. i don’t believe you think this is fashionable. i beleive that you saw it on the sartorialist and figured, hack+anouk+sartorialist= ubercool style WITHOUT EVEN THINKING.
Sorry but he doesn’t look eccentric or urban or in any way stylish to me. Rather, simply a ‘huh?’ moment. Her ensemble is OK but nothing extraordinary. Nothing we haven’t seen before and I will happily jump on the never-wear-nylons-with-open-toe-shoes bandwagon. I think commenters are confusing lovely human beings with style. Anouck Lepere certainly is a beautiful creature and as such elevates the clothes she wears beyond their actuality. But I could open a J. Crew catalog in any year and find this outfit.
Is it possible that they’re on the phone with each other, coordinating a meet and just didn’t realize their proximity — you know, they’re meeting for a sleeves-rolled-up convention or whatever — and this photo capture the very instant of their passing, yet they’re distracted by the lens of the camera thus ships crossing in the night….
Hack is not wearing suede wing tips, but in fact lace-up brothel creepers, or just “creepers.” The combination of bright red socks with black creepers is a classic ’77-era punk/rockabilly look, especially combined with skinnyish [slightly drainpipe-esque] faded black jeans…
doesn't any of u guys know Jefferson Hack?! Former editor-in-chief/founder of Dazed and Confused + Kate Moss exboyfriend whom she has the daughter Lila Grace with… If u guys don't know him I would recommend finding his pictures on style.com –> people and parties –> jefferson hack.
Not much u can say about these two, they are a coupple! and I, myself, think they look amazing! Jefferson is probably one of the best dressed men in the world.
jeffeson hack and anouck lepore (sp?)by himself i wouldn’t like his outfit but with her it compliments her outfit- which i really like. effortlessly casual and chic. doesn’t hurt that she is gorgeous of course!
to anonymous… they aren’t wing tips, they are what the old english teddy boys called brothel creepers… you can still get them in carnaby street in london, and maybe the east village in nyc, maybe trash and vaudville…
There are some good elements here, but overall, I think they both miss the mark a bit. I like her scarf, and how it compliments her sweater. The colour of her sport coat is great as well, but it doesn’t fit her. The breast pocket on the sport coat seems ridiculously high up as well, but that might be an illusion. Finally, wearing pantyhose and those shoes with the rest of the outfit is simply inexcusable. It pulls the outfit down considerably.
As for him, I’m not a fan of the rolled up sleeve at all, and the colour of the jeans does not go well with the colour of the sport coat. Other than that, I really like his shoes, and the fact that he’s wearing a vest under there.
