I adore the dress in motion; there is a compelling, almost magical yet intrguing aspect to it- an essence, or spirit. Almost as if it’s breathing in its own breath and life. There is a special clairvoyance, that is also engulfed within a haunting spirit. A beatiful photograph.
Wow! Haven’t commented on here in so long, but this deserves appreciation!
So great to see someone who has such great personal style, yet evades a fashion imprint.
This is what I visit your site for!
Love this photo! The lift of the wind creates such action, further enhanced by the suitcase, and the methods of transport. Where is she going or just come from? What did she pack? How is she travelling? Who is she and what does she do? I feel a story around this girl and this photo!
I like that the suitcase is there; it’s a set piece of the composition, addding an undercurrent of intrigue and drama. You’re drawn into contemplating the nature of the phone call, the circumstances of her life.
I LOVE the whole outfit!
Especially the striped socks –> it adds a contrast to the rest of the look & the fact that most of the time I wear striped socks –> so I LOVE them ^^
Moreover, I liked what she did with her hair – really interesting and pretty :)
She makes me think of Francoise Hardy (aka My Supreme Style Goddess).
I love just about everything about this look: the long bangs, the braid with the fabric woven through it, the wonderfully drapey neo-monastic dress, the socks, the boots, the absence of fussy, obvious “grooming.” And I appreciate that she knows the best way to wear leggings: as a layer under a dress or very long shirt, not as a pants substitute.
Add to this terrific look & lovely woman a cinematic, atmospheric setting that implies a lot of backstory… and you’ve got a hellaciously good photo here.
I absolutely LOVE this! The simplicity of it, the all black, the flowing silhouette, the fact that she’s got cuffed pants (jeans?) underneath rather than tights or leggings and then those adventurous socks, and of course, that braid!! Totally genius.
An outfit that reminds me of Egon Schieles drawings and paintings in which he used black as a a filling colour… which leaves it up to the movement of the body and fabric to create the impression. Extreemely inspiring – I am a great fan of outfits that lets you think of something other than fashion.
@ The Stylish Mr Gordon-
here it’s the girl in the photo.
I’m totally agree with you, the nail polish is too much, but I was in love with it, since when they gave it to me at the Chanel’s show some days before…
you know… I was leaving Paris that day…(that was the reason of the suitcase) and I haven’t had time to buy the solvent …and I’m totally agree with you… the Chanel,changing gold-green nail polish it was really too much with that outfit!
