I think my favorite part of this dress is the little blue folded triangles on the back pleats. It reminds me of a piece of origami — structural and precisely folded. And the shade of blue is just right.
It’s an interesting dress, shows off her delicate body structure. Although… I wouldn’t wear it. Seems, uh, too odd. Although what I mean by that when I’ve looked at the recent photos of other fashion shows, I guess it seems not quite thought out.
This one looks like she pulled old, pleated curtains from the 60s down and redid them as a dress. I understand the urge, since those upholstry fabrics are often to die for. The way the top is cut, though, makes the whole thing work. Miraculous, really.
Love that blue. My art studio is near Lincoln Center, so now I am beside myself wondering if I might spot the Sartorialist nearby and see what the Sartorialist is wearing! I will have to be on the lookout for photographers photographing sartorialist things!
few people would have the body shape (skinny, no curves) and the attitude to be able to wear a dress with hard wide pleats at the hips but this women does it with ease. She truly wear and embodies the dress rather than the other way around. it would horrible on most women but it looks amazing on her.
Looks like she wrapped a pleated curtain around herself. Guess this goes to show if you pair a pretty girl with a great photographer, you can dress her in almost anything and people will still love it!
A style triumph!! Everything about this look works for me. From the architecture of the dress to her choice of accessories and the footwear is so unexpected and darling + she has a great stride. New Yorkers are waaaaay stylish :-)
This is the sort of dress that might cause me to have a spectacular meltdown before I even had the chance of walking out the door. What shoes? Jewelry? Hair? To cardigan or not to cardigan? And yet, I’m quite certain this young lady plucked it out of her closet and tossed it on over her undies, whipped her hair into a knot, threw her bag over her shoulder and sauntered out the door. It’s such an extravagant dress, but she’s wearing it so simply, to a delightful result.
I think the idea of the dress is lovely but the pleats aren’t pulled together correctly in my opinion. They’re too heavy and deliberate. Like a few people said before she is a bit of a “walking curtain”. Maybe if it was a different fabric? The cut outs in the waistline are beautiful and if nothing else she definitely carries herself well. I almost think she could be wearing a trashbag and still seem like she’s draped in couture.
Adore, adore, adore. The definition of “statement” and worn on the street apparently quite comfortably. Not a flattering shape but one that shocks the eye, and that is what moving fashion forward is all about.
