Do you ever feel like people are just trying to outdo each other with mixing? Sometimes I see someone and think they have a concept being their mixing, but other times, I think they randomly put clothes on to achieve a “street style” look. This look would be the latter for me.
Pointu how we say in French, I guess I would translate this as “sharp”…Not in a knife sense but more in the “not for the ordinary” sense. Guess it reminds me of “les Prairies de Paris” small French brand with attitude!
I love this – it is a very unexpected mix – yet it works so well and those shoes are abs fabulous – i think it is the cohesion of the repeated black and white that pulls it together – whatever it is – i love it x
This is why I love your site. I always just pair my band-tees with jeans. Now I have the idea to pair one with a skirt and my black/white oxford flats. New outfit out of my closet with items I already own that I never would have thought to put together. Love it!
I can always count on The Sartorialist – always fresh, modern, beautiful photos containing images of very well-dressed people. She’s so gorgeous, I love her printed skirt on her paired with the cool shoes.
Beautiful and badass. Fashion week was so boring; glad there’s one interesting person in nyc left. @marcel, wtf? people in ny don’t just listen to ny music. thanks for showing us you know some bands, though (eye roll).
perfect mash-up. in love.
Hate to say it but I just don’t get this look. In my opinion, someone woke up and said, I am going to put absolutely anything together. Having that sense of freedom is great but I’m not digging this look at all.
There is nothing stylish about a pilled cardigan. I miss the days when street style photographers would actually shoot elegant people with real personal style. Now it’s all about young skinny girls who put together crazy costumes and mix multiple trends. Or it’s about you and Garance sitting in the front row to shoot the runway. I’ve stopped reading your blog on a regular basis and these are the reasons why.
really amazed at some of the comments that don’t even try to understand the references here and seemed threatened by a band t-shirt, a vintage looking cardigan and skirt. the music history references are totally coherent and, not to take away, it’s not like this is something revolutionary. really appreciate the sense of humor and pop culture references here.
This is why I love your blog so much … there’s every combo of style for everyone. Tasteful, eccentric, out there, classic – everything.
I think this outfit is hideous. Especially the sweater. I again, I appreciate it, without actually liking it. I think this photo is a typical example of if we saw it on the street, we’d wonder, “what is she thinking?” vs. seeing on The Sartorialist, and everybody going ga-ga for it. If this outfit was on anyone but a very pretty and slim girl, it would definitely be derided. I’d love to see the t-shirt, skirt, and shoes worn differently, and the sweater tossed out.
Thanks as always for the provocative photos, Scott.
Sorry, she is beautiful but this looks a mess to me. This isn’t edgy, it’s just chaos with a shabby sweater. Nothing goes with anything else. Even vaguely. Maybe she is having a bad day but it’s a mess.
To the nay-Sayers:
Creepers + a Soundgarden tee + bright skirt + houndstooth = true love. <3
This isn't a woman trying to be "edgy" or purvey a particular image. This ensemble is a collection of pieces that she loves, clearly. I love how her unique personality is expressed here. Originality and individuality are something we should celebrate and find joy in, even as "professionals" and "adults". Bravo.
