    I love the combination of Navy and Black – somber and chic.

    The Shoes are fittingly odd. Like the fingernail detail. And the bag. Calvinist-Minimal Punk-Grunge

    Combining aubergine nails, an over-sized seamstress’ pin, a cigarette and that youthful hair seems to make the purse just seem like a naturally included accessory.

    I am very impressed with how synergistic this whole ensemble ends up appearing.

    he’s very sweet looking. i like the little detail of the saftey pin as a badge and the earring when the rest of his outfit’s so simple.
    that second photo is gorgeous.

    it is the simple aspects that take this to the next level: the pin, the plum nail varnish the devil is in the details!

    How utterly romantic! That kilt pin in the lapel is the perfect accent on that GORGEOUS coat. The contrast in the snow is nice too…Are those clogs?

    This photo with the mix of androgony and timelessness makes me think of a Twilight Vampire. i love the very dark blue with black and the bare skin – the V neck, throat and gloveless hands. It’s interesting.

    these pics from Stockholm are awesome!
    I already knew they are very stylish people, and it is a pleasure being able to see them from your point of view.
    love boys with black nail polish.

    Ah, so this might be a girl! More androgyny – love it! This person has the most beautiful face, head and neck. The haircut is also pretty damn hot. Love the whole thing – a truly stunning individual.

    Interesting. Gorgeous. Looks a little chilly, though.

    Did you bump into Garance while you were there? This kid’s style looks a lot like the kid’s she photographed.

    Boy, girl? Does it, should it matter? I like the short purple nails that choke out a bit of life in this very cold and barren picture.

    this feels so wonderfully ’70s-early ’80s to me–it’s got a great, glamorous punk vibe.
    plus i am a sucker for men with pierced ears.

  36. Evelyn

    January 28, 2009 at 11:09 am

    a punk the hair style..
    but i don’t really like the nail colour…and men with nail polishing…is sth weird to me.

    safety pins. i love.. :) and also the color of his nails fits on him.

    I was waiting for the inevitable “should the gender matter” comment.

    It doesn’t matter, and it does, because we want to classify things in nature this way. Don’t read so much into a benign–and utterly acceptable–question.

    I am going with male.

  39. The Storialist

    Yes, fine androgyny! I like the first image best…rumped, bedroom-slippered.

    I didn’t like the shoes.
    But the nails are amazing! Here in Brazil, some moths ago, it was a trend to put strange colors on them. It used to be nice…

    Great find, Sart. Love this young chap’s haircut and coat. The nails, hair, trousers, and safety pin make me think punk.

    His IS sweet, and he DOES have a certain panache, but aren’t we FAR too sophisticated to think of androgyny as being original?

    I think his creativity is superior. The ability to make the used coat his with the touch of kilt pin sets him apart. The hair and nails, while nice, only show his fashion sense- but the wearing the coat alone shows he has an eye.

    Interesting… Not too sure how I feel about this look. The safety pin I like, because the silver of the single earring unifies it. That just me?

    beautiful nail colour, coat to die for, and a very clean andro-punk feel, almost as if punk went to finishing school or rehab.

    He was one of the Acne models sneaking a ciggie while still in his catwalk gear. Shoes had to stay inside, hence the strange shoes.

    *happy sigh*

    The thing I love best about the nails is that they are perfectly manicured. He’s committed fully to them. And how gorgeous that purple looks against his pale, pale skin.

    I personally love when guys wear nail polish and assume that kind of androgyn behaviour, and the colour he chose is awsome, and he wears it better than I do.
    Love the coat and that huge pin.
    Love his pale & cold hands.

    I just can not understand why the people who post comments here have trouble recognizing men and women. Then they try to pass off anyone that isn’t wearing a push up bra or has a bread as “androgynous”. Its weird and irritating. He is not androgynous. HE is a guy. A HE!!!!! Everyone can see this. Stop pretending that it isn’t obvious.
