Is this jacket practical? Other thing that amazes me is that these girls really still go around bare feet like that!? It’s COLD. I was in Milano one monht ago, and I couldn’t have imaged to go out like that! WOW! Superwomen?
Reading the comments, I do also wonder how she got dressed. Doesn’t matter, though…the unknown element makes this ensemble more appealing and interesting. So chic, classy, elegant! The modern but classic gray pumps add further appeal.
Could it be a dress rather than a coat? Then she’d only have to get into it once a day. I had a dress like this. I had to slip it on over the head with just the top few buttons undone, then reach back and button those. Not too hard.
You’ve really outdone yourself Mr. Schuman… This image is more than a commentary snapshot of fashion: It’s a beautiful, composed and fantastically surreal portrait reminiscent of the playfulness of Magritte, Man Ray and Duchamp; Everyone’s got their back to the camera, except the coat/dress!!!
stunning. both conservative and provocative at once.
i have a delicate backbuttoning top, and i love it. but it's too cold for me to wear right now! i need backbuttons in a dress. any idea where i could find some nice ones? i realize hers is from paul & joe…
A beautiful shot and a beautiful dress. If it were impracticable to wear I assume she wouldn’t be wearing it. Love anonymous 3:04′s reference to Magritte, Man Ray and Duchamp, “everyone’s got their back to the camera except the coat/dress!!!”. Well done!
I love the coat dress, which feels very Tippi Hendron. Love the shoe choice and the bag. Love the well-formed gastrocnemius and the light tan. Whew. However… I don’t love the hair. I feel like she should have had either an immaculate pony or twist, maybe a combo of the two… but something with *intention*… rather than this messy thing she’s got going on behind her head.
this reminds me of the book “The Giver” when before the kids reach a certain age they have coats that button up in the back so that the person who lines up behind them buttons it up for them, it’s supposed to teach them teamwork and stuff. I wonder if this works similarily
