Not sure about the one facing woman's wife beater. Looks out of place with all those vibrant and deep colors. A black or colored bustier fits better with her outfit than the "wifebeater" she chose to wear. Dig the furry boa! Fabulous shot!
All these textures, prints, colors and frilly silhouettes seem a bit cartoonish to me. I am usually a Prada fan, but not this time around. However, I am guessing people just had an overdose of Celine's austerity this past season and got bored too quickly.
I wouldn't kick any of these lovely ladies out of bed for eating crackers. Nor would I be embarrassed to be seen them. But I'm just not sure this isn't more of them wearing all their favorite pieces at the same time. I really don't think these are really working.
Apart from that…I love them! And so, maybe it is working for them?
great colors! but I guess I am officially old now: while I love my fruit of the loom vests and even like black bras under white clothing the middle gal looks like she forgot her top–at least with the skirt she chose. Also agree with earlier commenter that I like the your shots of the reinterpretations of these looks better than the obligatory and obvious designer numbers.
Wow so trendy?! While the prada stole is amazing I can't help but feel like these women are just "following the trends". I mean Jil Sander and Prada, please they could not be more of the "trend" – setters this season painting women in vibrant colors, I just wish these women had more originality with how they wear their new clothes.
I like the outfit on the left best. The women in the middle should have worn another bra. It's the first time I see someone wearing those Prada clothes and shoes (!!!). I think the new "maximalism" is great, but something doesn't seem right with the orange shirt, the vest and the hair…
I agree with the above commenters–"wifebeater" is a horrible term. It's both classist (assuming that domestic violence only happens in blue-collar homes / that violence always happens in blue-collar homes) and sexist (making violence against women seem like a joke or a given). "Tank top" and the British "vest" are perfectly good and accurate terms… why do so many people refuse to use them??
Also sad to see that fur is coming back.
How is it that so many style-conscious people, who at their best value beauty, diversity, and joie de vivre, are often perfectly ok with, and even defensive of, ugliness–of the fur industry, of the behavior of folks like John Galliano, of hateful attitudes in language?
Aside from the beauty and the quality of the clothes, I find these women to be more boring than the usual subjects of your wonderful photos–they look like they're just following trends and buying straight from the runway. Not really seeing anything that's inspiring here. It's actually kind of cool to see this shot juxtaposed to your other ones–it really makes the personal style of so many of your subjects sing that much more!
In Australia, the white top the girl in the middle is wearing is called a singlet. The term "wife beater" is never used to describe an item of clothing and I don't think many Australian people would know what you were talking about if you referred to the top as such. I agree with others that it is awful term to use.
I remember a long while back someone writing that they wondered if occasionally you threw in an off photo just to test us, just to keep us on our toes. I have to say that this photo makes me think of that comment because, despite the high design element, do these women look attractive? I am a long time Prada fan but it has to fit well to work, doesn't it?
Prada wedges are very pretty. I like them with the black tights and colorful, fitted flouncy skirt. I am not as impressed by the cats in the hat furry tail thing. Its just too silly for me. The woman in the white tank top is beautiful. What a great hair style and lovely dark eyes she has. Still the shoes always steal the show.
I actually do not like outfit on the girl wearing the Jil Sander poplin because it looks sloppy with the nipple and the black bra showing through! I like that Prada fur stole! I am getting the Prada eco fur stole in the mail soon :) I like that Prada skirt on the other lady… just not that vest. Awesome pieces don't always mean awesome outfits.
Really enjoy the eclectic color mix of this photo, as well as how much fun these girls are having talking to each other. It's as if the energy of the colors matches the girls' excitement. The Prada on the right has the same color blue in the sporty wedges as the blue fur stole around her friend's neck. Can't leave out mention of the bright pink Jil Sander ruffles, which makes the picture. Great eye, Scott! Always love your photos! â™Ą
One thing I love is seening how people style up the new season runway pieces in their own way. These girls look great – though the one in the vest neededed a nude bra poor thing sometimes what looks ok in the day can go see-through due to a camera flash. The Prada stoles are amazing, personally I bought mine in faux fur, it is such a vibrant collection, love it!
