Gray/brown/cream/black/worn denim blue. Beautiful, analogous, muted (but thoughtful) color palette, accentuated by that vivid yellow/white/orange background. The blacks of the scooter's shadow and her bag, the night sky, the bit of text behind her back, and her hair and eyes are also in perfect balance, spatially.
That scooter's cool, but not cooler than those awesome frames — so strong, and you can tell from her gaze she has the personality and intelligence to back them up. Lovely mood, lovely woman, lovely shot.
I love the simplicity of this shot. The look on her face. The glasses. Her presence speaks bounds in the silence & serenity captured in this shot. Structured effortless-ness (if that's a word)…one of my favorite things….
How to wear a cape…and sweater, and hair, and hornrimmed specs, and…! Beautiful colour combination here. The Italians, as I always say, almost do English better than the English themselves. Certainly better than the French and Americans.
Back to the photo. I bet she's sitting on a Vespa. She's quite beautiful and has the kind of face I could look at for days. Nice find, Sart.
She definitely works the nerdy-chic oversizes specs, and I love the mixture of patterns and textures she's wearing. It's so great to see people wearing capes–I've always thought they were so elegant when worn like these women are wearing them.
Scott, I really like how you captured this lady! The light, her posture and expression is great. Props to her for how she put her outfit together. The layers that are shown from looking at her sleeves, the contrast in colour, the her specs and the slightly frayed edge of her gray sweater. Simply delightful! A mix of Sherlock Holmes and Coco Chanel! Bravo!!!
Their is something very smart and functional about this image. I appreciate the conscientious use of layering fabric shades of tan, heather gray and denim coupled with the checkered print of the cape. The spectacles, of course, highlight the brilliance of this woman's outfit.
I just love her! Her style is impeccable, and the sweater as a scarf is bold in a very neutral, very functional, highly functioning way. I love that her heathered brown sweater is well loved.Just beautiful!
Ahhh – the Golden Arches! A familiar symbol for all travellers far from home! And this is what I think sticks out in your work & makes it so special…the attention you pay to what's going on BEHIND the subject you are snapping! xxo
the cape looks like the fabric of my school uniform skirt, which is a rather vile polyester. i like the beige/blue/gray sleeve ends. i'd love to wear those layers to school, but alas, it's not in uniform.
(a) how to rock a killer pair of glasses without looking like you're an avid american apparel junkie. (b) how to successfully layer shirts without looking 10 pounds heavier (c) how to use a shirt as a scarf without looking…like you're wearing a shirt as a scarf i guess… so clearly i like this picture.
besides the awesome combination of colors, and everything, does she have a sweater wrapped around her neck!!! and those glasses?! shes a a mcdonalds?!! anywho, I'm in love… like seriously, there's just something about everything in this picture, and her look
I'll second Brian's comment way up near the top, which is basically, be good looking, then put on clothes. Ha. Pretty true. Anyway, she makes all of if work. She looks like an even better looking Janeane Garofalo.
RottkĂ¤pchen(little red riding hood)after her romance with the wolf? Brown and blue,earth and sky.She is complete.A shirt between two sweater and she wrapped in another one.What has knitwear that makes it special?
I've been wearing a cape I inherited from my grandmother-in-law, a gorgeous tweed made for her in Ireland decades ago. Seeing these cape variations on your site has made me realize I could be doing much more with it… thank you for the inspiration!
I don't think those are TF 5040 frames. The hinge area on the 5040 (where the side piece connects to the frame) has a thin silver design that looks like a "T" lying on its back. There might be a glare problem but I'm seeing plain glossy black with no ornamentation. Much better, cleaner looking. Signed-Society for the Prevention of Tarted-Up Eyeglasses
I have to really stretch on this one. I like the mix, but for me, there's a bit too much going on here. Her coloring is so delicate, and although I like the frames, I would have chosen something a bit less obtrusive. Having spent ten years in optics, I guess I look at the glasses first, and if they take my eye completely away from the person who is wearing them, and they become all I see, then I shake my head and say "No, pick another pair my dear". Still, her palette is perfection, love it!
Happy to see this girl again. She had a masterful mix of neutrals and patterns last time. I agree with Grace's comments. I am amazed that her hair and face look almost exactly the same as in the former pic which makes her more real and normal than some of the fashion slaves you photograph. I think those cuffs may be chambray, a softer weave than denim.
ah yes, the very specs that i want and have now seen on here two or three times. Tom Ford, he's making a killing in accessories. right, there are two models : sell a few things expensively or many things inexpensively.
i follow this blog since several months now and have it in my blogroll although it has nothing to do with my work and blog topic, because the pictures and the concept in general protray a wonderful feeling for BEING.
Here there is a special manifestation: one sees or understands clearly, that every piece of clothes and every combination is a sign of the particlar individual.
Wonderful to contemplate PEOPLE and study how the shine, by simply being themselves.
