the first photo is almost unreal – the way the lines of perspective converge on her; the repeated shapes., colours and lines of the scooters, building and trees. she actually kind of looks like a human exclamation point in that one.
i love all three pictures and all three styles of her! she looks angelic in the first one, with the light cast on her, the shadow she gave away and the strong contrast between the background and her. i like the vintage green cropped leather jacket in the second picture and lastly, the hi-cut chucks with leggings and almost fitting coat! oh and of course the turquoise clutch! the ultimate accessory indeed!
she clearly has her basics (black, white, leggings, tee, black coats, white chucks) and then the standout accessories (green jacket, turquoise bag). I can’t wait to have such a disciplined sense of style.
I must say that whereas ordinarily – despite being an avid reader of the blog – I never feel compelled to make inane comments on your pictures, there’s something about this girl’s grace that really moves me. The comparison is surely over-used, and almost always erroneously, but I can’t help but draw it; she has the truly effortless style of Audrey Hepburn in ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s.’
Contrasted with the leggings, the coat in the first image has the perfect shape. It also reaches the correct point on her upper thighs.
Not only is the green leather jacket also the perfect length, but it also works perfectly with the long, white top underneath. The pants add the perfect among of complication to the outfit; she manages to avoid being a Rothko-esque pairing of vertical blocks of color. All pieces stand alone in this ensemble, and in a sense they all pull their own respective weights.
The soft, draped form of the trench-coat-meets-sweater in picture 3 is another example of a stand-alone, or independently special, garment. The skirt peaking through saves the look, albeit barely, from being too “shabby chic.” A perfect amount of shimmering ankle appears between the ultra-slender legging-clad legs and the similarly form-hugging high top converses that seem almost an extension of her feet.
For all of those viewers who feel inclined to obsess over the minutiae – be it the cut of her hair (apparently not suitable to this audience), or the color of her bag (on the contrary, a real hit) – I would issue a brief word of advice, so to speak:
Do not comment unless you have genuinely valuable and novel insight to add to the open discussion of Mr. Schuman’s photographs. Stop abusing the power you have to share your every thought, should you so choose, on the internet.
well I will join everyone else in saying I love that bag, but I also VERY much LOVE the green leather jacket. And I also LOVE the 1st photo artistically speaking with her in the middle and all the scooters/motos lined up on the sides…so Italian…
Although I didn’t read every single comment I can not believe more people aren’t flipping out over the first photograph: first, the light; and second–her shoes! This woman is gorgeous and, as surely as she holds her Marc Jacobs clutch close to her bosom, will carry the human race one generation further into evolutionary perfection. They shoes are already there.
It's not where she is. It's not what she wears. It's her that who knows what to keep, in this case it's her own bag. What I think what fashion is that everything is in your draws. They are there because you bought them so if there are a few items you never had around, go and find the partners that also are in your draws.
