    I absolutely love her leather jacket. Her upper half adds aura to her bottoms.

    if you told me that some girl was looking amazing in a gray sweat suit and a leather jacket and sneakers i might laugh at you! But wow, this has got to be one of my favorite photos on your blog!

    Agree with Faye at 9:57 am–the golden glow of face and hair make the grey & taupe palette work. Lovely.

    Although I usually hate trousers like those, she looks superb. The combination of the leather jacket with an outfit that almost looks like work-out clothes is fantastic.

    Love how relaxed but cool this look is. All these recent photos from Moscow are great! My Russian boyfriend would be proud.

    This inspires me to take my to/from gym repetoire to a new leve (though clearly with the makeup, this is not a post-gym shot). I love that it makes the viewer wonder about the story of where she’s going/been.

    I wish I’d kept all my draped, low-crotch, tight ankle outfits I bought in the 1980s. They were super comfy. She looks very cool, with minimal make-up, relaxed, quite zen.

    Sart! I see you love these pants so much)) I haven’t seen them on the streets so often. You were lucky these days.
    Anyway when I wore these pants in summer everyone looked at me with interest not only in Moscow but even in Europe.

    I guess when the harem pant became acceptable fashion wear, the trackpant couldn’t be far behind…

    i had to comment on this photo. she is amazing in her sweatpants oh my god. did not think i would ever say about sweat pants. only wear sweat pants with a Hermes Birkin (or Chanel 2.55 in the worst case scenario). ;)

    There is a lot of things right about this outfit, in my opinion, but overall it doesn’t really work.

    I love the matching shades of grey (though hate those damn drop crotch pants – think I’m gonna start calling them Moscow pants!).

    I also love her bag. And the jacket. But combined with the pants it just says rich housewife doing errands in her sweats. I can’t stand look, personally.

    I do like her tan though, fake or not – she looks very serene and fresh.

    The cool thing is that the blouse does not look like gym gear- it could be a very soft grey cashmere sweater…
    I would have to agree -if someone was discribing it I wouldn’t imagine it good…

    God I love this!! Just lovely and relaxed. She looks like she is about to jump into her convertible MG and head to a beach house for the week-end.
    Once there, she will open a bottle of great red wine and chat with friends in front of a roaring fire while the sound of the ocean tumbling against the shore, echoes in the background – am I painting a picture here?

    This is a gym outfit on a beautiful girl. She needs to wear smaller pants, lose the headband and she’ll look polished. Everyone photographed on this blog is not poetry, for gods sake.

    Nice photograph, attractive woman, awful outfit. I can’t believe how many of you are positive about this look… no shape in this whatsoever, just an unflattering baggy crotch. Yuk.

    slinky look! very comfortable looking.
    I think the headband and tan makes her look a little old?
    some lipstick might add some bright colour to the outfit too(:

    Sporty and chic yes but def not gym wear. Pierre Hardy high tops? A Birkin? Perfect attire for mall jogging.

    I detest the pants – they look like maternity, sans the impending baby belly. We love her look because her face and stance exudes confidence – no matter what she is wearing, the bag she is carrying, or the “tan”. Nothing is more magnetic than confidence!

    Sart, the pic works on this level and for this lesson!

    Russians seem to love a droopy crotch. Maybe that comes from the “eastern” influence rather than the “western” or European look that we are used to. It’s nice to see fashion from a different point of view.

    wow – sweats with a leather jacket/sneakers and a birkin? i never thought that would look anything but trashy, but this looks surprisingly chic.
    i can’t help but think that a part of that has to do with your skills behind the camera, though.

    At last : A Birkin !!
    The previous girls pictured are not at all typical of Moscow style .
    Nor is this girl – except for the Birkin which every self respecting woman in Russia wants/owns at least a few of !!!

    On the first view I thought the sweatpants were made of woolen fabric, like for suits. That was really inspiring to me, but after taking a closer look, it just might be simple cotton. I am not sure. I think the material makes a big difference!
    What makes the whole look attractive i.m.o. is the colour palette and the light given from the location. e.g. the floor reflects the colour of her bag…

    Sooo chic !

    Her mate could be the Chanel guy.
    The only question is : how to be able to dress like that and make enough money to evoluate in an environement that allows you to dress that way!
    Even if you are working in fashion, you need to show a more ” conventional ” look, especially for mens.
    I am all for that ” casual chic “, attitude but I need the lifestyle ( and the money ), to go with it !!

    At first, the way she matched grays and browns and the easy slouch of her clothes appealed to me.
    But the longer I look, the less I like. Too much spray tan, the pants/V-neck/sneaker combo looks sloppy, and the bag is boring.
    She is a lovely woman, though.

    I would say that the treat is on the v neck sweater (kachemira?!)… Although the look seams very easy… It’s not as simple as that, the simple sweatpants (notice the waist line, the fabric movement, it’s not a regular trainies), the simple birkin bag… the simple retro sneakers, the simple leather jacket… and the tan that would look out of place, but it doens’t, yes it is beautifully built, yes indeed… very builted!

    Dear all! It's so strange to read such comments from you. I'm from Moscow, this girl is a usual one in this City! Yes, she really looks nice and cool and so on. But it's normal for Moscow to wear such clothes! There are lots of girls in looots of gold pretty-pretties and only in D&G but it's not already so common here. We love casual style with a bit of chic. And when a girl is realy stylish, she has natural make up, casual and nice clothes. That's it :)
