    That's the way to wear a blazer. I think this suit would bring me through a whole winter. Marvellous!

    She (Ms. Astrid Munoz?), with her lithe architecture and quintessentialist style, absolutely expresses the sartorial elegance of the new 21st Century Minimalism. A purist designer/model's worldly less-is-more un-black anti-uniform. She is both protected and fiercely provocative: sheathed in a buttoned-down, collar-up, urbane suit; sculpted as a warmly tactile, double-breasted, urban body armor.

    I want her (or perhaps a lookalike Jennifer Beals) to star in my developing novel/screenplay "The Woman in the Gray Flannel Suit" — a re-gendered 2010+ update of Sloan Wilson's still-influential 1950s book/film "The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit".

    PS: Fabulous photo. But please Sart, what shoes would "Astrid" be wearing?

    One for the style files! I like how the handsome grey wool of the suit is feminized by the raised shoulder.

    The watch is great. It looks like a combination of gold and silver, which just seems so smart to me lately, when done right.It's somehow more communicative and winking.

    The photo makes me want to be in Paris.

    If I had seen her on the street that day, my heart would have ached for two or three days. Some designs, postures (and eyes) make the mind thrill with longing, and this one's got it. Sometimes beauty transcends "hotness" or status and awakens a great hope for the future. I want a world in which all women can feel this confident and free.

    Finally, something that looks good and makes sense. So much of what you show is – "the kookier the better", which is not necessarily better. ait looks a bit trashy and desperate for attention. OK – I'm 61 yo, still hip, but appreciate this suit that has some semblance of order and style.

    it's not really all that 'masculine,' in fact, it's quite tailored. she has a beautiful face and it's hard to believe she wasn't already posing for an editorial fashion shoot.

    When I was a little girl I had a fantasy in which I was just like this when I grew up. The focus of the fantasy was a great pantsuit (I pictured a green 1980's Dior – don't ask). I was a fashion industry lawyer(!) This is the real embodiment of my fantasy.

    I love this photo and all of your photos, too.
    You should come to Moscow and take some photos here, too.
