Ah! The red feather in her hat! The tiny buttons down the front of her skirt and the belt sitting low and thin on the waistband are stunning! I love the blue of that wall. I love this. Nowhere do I find as much personal style inspiration (which is what I’m interested in above fashion) as on your blog! Thank you for sharing your beautiful photos of beautiful people. Daphne
recently i’ve felt you’ve been posting a lot of photos of people following trends rather than displaying their personal style. I know it’s difficult because of fashion week/s and people log into The Sartorialist expecting to see new and exciting pictures all the time and that must be a lot of pressure, but love it or loathe it this lady has a strong personal look going on that is interesting and different. I love the red feather and the hardware on her bag.It’s a strong individual look and i admire that. (Glad the scary black insect didn’t attack your camera, must have been close….)
Love her style, it looks very simplist with a childish top , a vintage skirt and the docs, whereas it’s really interesting by looking at her morphology, I couldn’t do that, anyway, I’m not enough thin .
This reminded me of The Sound of Music. I think it’s the hat. I just love this look!!! The skirt, the hat, the coat, the shirt with the lace? bow? tie? I’m not quite sure what it is, but it worked. It’s just so refreshing. Loved it.
The red coat and red feather in her hat are quite fun and bright on this impish woman. I like how all the colors work together, buuuuut there’s something a little a-sexual(?) here. Maybe undo a few buttons to hint at cleavage or try a more feminine shoe.
I LOVE her!! All of the colours she has on are just so dreamy and how on earth did (I’m going to call her ‘Lady in Red’ for now) manage to make those Dr Martens look so darn elegant! DREAMY! Tiffany xoxo
That hat reminds me of my second cousins hunting hat except his is green. That coat is phenomenal, bright military coat, I love the brassy buttons. And the ribbed shirt with the black ribbon, kinda’ reminds me of and old fashioned school teacher, but classier!
Some great stuff going on here. Love the blue background contrasting with the red coat. Love the flow of the skirt, the contrast of the coat with the neutral skirt and top. Love the bow around her neck. And the hat, oh the hat completes it.
Woody Allen would cast her in a second! There is a large nod to Victorian era recently, shoes, tie, and hat…seems fashion is taking a humble look around and reminiscing about bygone days. She should be running an orphanage.
Hmmm, I do like the red and light blue together, but I suspect the silence is because nothing else really works. Skirt is too long and shapeless, black tights, hat, and little necktie conspire to give this an elfin/witchy look altogether.
You had her recently. On the one hand, I admire the thought put into this. On the other hand, I don’t like it for being too calculated, too much of a costume. Tyrolean hat with red feather that is repeated in the coat, little black bow tie, anti-fashion boots… I appreciate the calculations, but say no thanks.
This girl is absolutely 100% DROP. DEAD. GORGEOUS! Bravo. the shot is amazing. Everything about this is amazing. Is this the same girl from a prior post a few days back? If so, anyone know who she is? ;)
Brilliant update of Regency style. She’s going to elope with a soldier, like some naughty Jane Austen character. I think it’s the colours, especially, which make me think of the period: just the right blue and fawn against the red coat. Nice.
Glad to see this woman again. I loved her last look that was posted her. In this one, I’m noticing the touches of black that balance her shoes and bring the other colors together. Great hat, that she had on in the other photo a couple weeks ago. Very individual how she’s choosing to wear her skirts above her waistline, apparently. It works on her figure. I’m not quite sold on the color of the skirt with the red coat, though overall I love the entire thing.
I agree–whoever said this look was a shot of current trends is missing the tastefulness that makes the whole thing hang together. She makes people think of The Sound of Music and Mary Poppins; but if you look at the styling in those films (and why not My Fair Lady while you’re at it), you won’t find this look. That’s the genius here, the Jedi mind trick. And the photo, with its staging and timing, is brilliant.
givenchy bag? balenciaga shoes? if im not mistaken- that coat is marc jacobs collection from 2003/4?? (forgive me if im wrong) this girl is fooling everyone! the thing is that she is high-fashion but is playing it so under the radar, nobody knows it by first glance. the epitome of excellent style and excellent taste.
Genius. Possibly one of the most dramatic and amazing pictures you have taken for a while. I love how comfortable she looks and the colour combintaions along with girlie yet tomboyish is a perfect mix. 10/10.
very much agree with comments saying this girl has very strong personal style, however, the legth and colour of her skirt brings to mind the calf length skirts from Dolce & Gabanna Fall 08 collection. i've no idea whether this was intentional or spontaneoues, either way the whole look is gorgeous!
p.s i LOVE that length/type/colour of skirt, anyone know were to get one?
I love this – her quirky non-conformity is emphasized by unusual lengths and splashes of red. The hints of black all over in her satchel, footwear and accessories help steer it away from overthetop gamine. xxx
