she is beautiful. i love the textures of the shirt and skirt. the skirt -especially- seems fun with the beading and the one loose thread hanging. i know most people won’t like the combat boots but they so nicely balance the very feminine top half. thank you sart.
Felix, did you miss the series of photos from HYERES? They were posted end of April and almost all garnered over a hundred comments. So, if by chance you did miss it, just click on April 2008 and you will see how the Sartorialist captured the fashion scene in another French city. Enjoy!
I love this look and the subject; could this also be one of your best non-fashionista pictures? I like that she balanced feminine clothes with the combat boots and the aviators. Great shot! Jorge from W Palm Beach
I guess I don’t see what’s so fashion-forward about this look. It looks pretty basic to me–what thousands of girls have worn before, a skirt and combat boots. Although it does make me think that my own closet might be slightly more interesting than I thought, if outfits like this can make it on here.
I like the combo of punk + girly, but otherwise, I’m not sure what exactly the allure is of this ensemble… it’s a little bit boring, at least for the sartorialist. Her attitude rocks but the style in this photo is a little predictable.
It’s been so hot lately, that this girl looks exactly like I feel.
This is definitely a look for the very young, those still in school. An interesting mix of textures, and the pink with black that was so popular in the 50′s works here, too. Heavy boots with the girly skirt are too much of a cliche, though. Imagine this with strappy sandals and without the cigarette.
her top is leather?? holy toledo! i love it! and i think it looks adorable with her skirt…
however, my A-type personality is dying for a pair of scissors to cut that damn string. i can’t help it. i don’t mind unfinished edges, but i hate long, hanging strings. especially, one. super. long. string. argh!
This does absolutely nothing for me. She looks disheveled and seriously sloppy. Perhaps I just don’t get it. Perhaps the beauty and ingeniousness of her look is best perceived in person. I suppose there is meant to be a juxtaposition of tender and tough, glam and grunge. Then again if the observer must expend such energy to “interpret” the message, perhaps the message isn’t being executed as well as it could.
People object to the “cliche”-ness of her sweet skirt and combat boots, saying that it’s unoriginal and overdone. On the other hand, a skirt and sandals could be seen as just as overdone. I say at least she rocks it!
This shot is a great example of what I try to tell all my friends: beware of black shoes (regardless whether it’s a pair of boots like these Doc Martens or any other sort of footwear) on naked skin unless you are really tanned. Otherwise the contrast of colour is too hard, at least in my humble opinion.
We have sweet utility here. Glad to see that comfortable shoes are being worn and that they contrast nicely with the femininity of the details on the skirt and shirt. The accessories are tres chic, as well.
Oh, those naughty French, smoking at medical school! I imagine her saying, “I choose a shorter life that is filled with pleasure,” [said with careless one-shouldered shrug]. I am way, way, way anti-smoking (heart disease also destroys the lives of everyone who loved the smoker) but the insouciant coolness of that photo almost makes me forgive the media for making smoking cool. Almost. -victoria
I love this picture for many reasons: the careless attitude that is not normally characteristic of a med school student, the aviator sunglasses which I never leave my house without, the orangina… the list goes on. Get over the cigarette people!!! take the log out of your eye before you search for the needle in others….. plus its France!!!!!!!
