    She is lovely. This illustrates perfectly how one can wear a nearly monochromatic outfit that still looks properly balanced due to the variety of texture. Her hair is perfect, too.

    Very exciting to get a peek at Australian Street Fashion! This lass, with great concentration, has perfected the art of leaf levitation, and thankfully it has been captured on film!

    This is what Melbourne fashion is all about: Black on black, fitted cut, amazing fabric and a tasteful splash of jewelery. She’s lovely.

    she’s head to toe incredible; literally, her hair and her shoes, are of exemplary techniques.

    ps. the pants are nice too.

    She has such delicate features that you would think that stark black would not sit very well on her but somehow she manages to get away with it so as not be drowned by it.

    I love the leaf floating in the foreground, just as she is pushing her hips forward to effortlessly hover on the pavement.

    Wonderful shot!

    wow.
    i’m pretty sure she was also captured by the facehunter when he was here: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_6UzdmF8O-Oo/SRLGlK_1aOI/AAAAAAAAJL8/o3ZfoWsSJmU/s1600-h/IMG_9041.jpg

    This top has served her well! :)

    Really nice sweater. It remembers me the ones of Burberry’s Prorsum for last winter (men collection).

    Best!

    Very exciting to see your impressions of Australia. There is a certain clarity of light in New Zealand and Australia that you seem to be capturing perfectly. – Not an easy task as it usually washes street shots out.

  33. Sarah

    April 25, 2009 at 11:40 pm

    Her sweater looks so tactile – it just makes me want to reach out and stroke it.

    Like the chic slouchiness of the outfit’s silhouette too – would have prefered different footwear though.

    This could be anywhere. I’m thinking somewhere in France.

    I’m looking forward to more of your “I am a camera” takes on Australia.

    My feeling about the fashion here: anything looks good on a thin girl.

    Look at that swan-like neck being shown off with the scooped neck textural top. The pants look as if they’re satin or satin-y-esque; as if they’d feel nice to the touch and drape gracefully. She’s at ease, I like that.

    this girl look amazing- as does your other photograph of melbourne so far Sart, but please can i ask that you venture to the other side to caputre what many feel is the ‘real’ fashion area of Melbourne, say Gertrude/Brunswick/Smith Streets? I know you wont be dissapointed!

    She looks good, but as an ex-Melburnian, it is disappointing that everyone there is still wearing black. Yes, all black is back, but they’ve never stopped wearing it in Melbourne, especially on Chapel St – they lost their colourwheel about 20 years ago. They are so scared of colour, and so conservative when compared to Brisbane (Queensland) fashion.

    Love your work Sart, but what’s with just two pics for Melbourne, and a whopping eight pics for Sydney?? Given Melbourne’s reputation as the style capital of Australia, it does seem strange. Maybe the weather was a bit too cold here for your liking.

    She is beautiful. Also the complementary textures, balance and merely her posture. However, i was hopeing that you, the Satorialist would dig a little deeper into the dense layers of Melbournes laneways and streets. I think you would have found that Melbournians can wear colour wonderfully! So elegantly yet with playful undertones. Think locally hand crafted jewellery, hand printed fabrics, organic fabrics and natural dyes, not to mention our devotion for anything vintage!

    I hope you enjoyed your time here in Melbourne!
