    Laundry day! No, seriously, that’s very creative.

    Playful and inspiring street fashion.

    The dress is a fun concept, but I think there’s too much material and bulk for such a small girl.

    I can’t believe it … is it break dance ? You have one eagle eye !

    What a fabulous look. Some serious personal styling going on

    What a dress!! This is exactly what I mean for “personal style”….

    This is a very confusing look!
    How did she pull this off?

    I really like the photo because of her attitude, but the outfit does not do it for me.

    Not keen on the shoes, but otherwise, love this. Trying to figure out how she wound all those scarves together and keeps them in place???

    October 26, 2011 at 9:44 am

    This is such an interesting look! The textures almost make it punk, but its such a feminine style.

    How very interesting, is this one entire dress/are there additional pieces tied on?

    Love the shoes too

    What a wondrous work of art. I can get lost in all those beautiful tiers.

    It looks so organic – like what you might get if a pile of remnants decided to make a dress out of itself.

    Wow–so fascinating and wrapping paper-like!

    I don’t understand how this dress is constructed. Are the two fabric sewed together? Or just draped one on top of the other?
    The general effect is not bad but the length of the skirt is not very flattering on this girl. However I appreciate the effort of trying to be supercool!

    At the moment, we live in Dublin, Ireland. Interestingly brogue shoes originated in Ireland/Scotland. They were designed to allow water to drain easily. I have to mention, we must be really-super behind the times here in Dublin because I’m not seeing anyone wearing them this season yet.
    ps love the brogues this young lady is sporting

  20. Sandeep Bali

    October 26, 2011 at 10:05 am

    I could never in a million years pull of the man version of this outfit, but this young lady does it well. There is some mayjah movement in that dress! The shoes are on trend for the moment. What time is it? ITS FASHION TIME! :)

    Great style, original.

    The design of the dress and shoes really stand out

    Interesting look . Frances


    October 26, 2011 at 10:29 am

    Wow, how can someone sew something so creative? I love it

  25. Rebecca

    October 26, 2011 at 10:37 am

    J’aime beaucoup, d’autant plus que ce look assure de ne jamais ĂŞtre le mĂŞme: les subtilitĂ©s des noeuds, des superpositions rĂ©inventent forcĂ©ment l’allure!

    interesting look! but she pulls it off well!

    October 26, 2011 at 10:39 am

    VERY glad to see more street-style. The Italian and French classics are great, but in large part could come from 1991 as easily as 2011 (for the men, anyway). Bring on the experiments that challenge our eyes and assumptions!

    Great candid shot and interesting outfit. Very creative.

    Gives off sort of an almost traditional Japanese vibe for me.

    Interesting outfit, she’s her own designer. Great shot!

    Check out today’s look:

    Actually, it’s Rue du MarchĂ© St HonorĂ© at that point on the street (29 Juillet is the name of the block as it abuts the Rue Rivoli) – I know because that is my front door!

    October 26, 2011 at 10:56 am

    I find it rather humourous that in a wide variety of your photos, people are texting or talking on their cell phones.

    Fashion aside (though it is fabulous)
    I wonder what people will think of our technological world 100 years from now…

    How do you think of putting this outfit together? Either way I commend her for the creativity haha

  35. bridgette

    October 26, 2011 at 11:02 am

    I like whimsy in my style. This is a fun look. I wonder if she made the dress.

    love it! but pardon me, isnt it getting real cold in paris now?
    or was this picture taken some time ago hah

    So refreshing to see something so unique & just beautiful.

    So inspiring yet incredibly casual. And I need to stand in ballet poses when I think no one is looking too :)

    The pose is what makes this image for me. She is all angles: her feet are in a ballet third position, her head is lowered, her right arm is up to her ear, and her left arm forms a line in front of her so she can see her watch. The whole thing produces a nice, active geometry that contrasts with the soft, curving billows of her outfit. Another good photo…

    The brogues are the right footwear choice
    because it’s a layered shoe.
    Smart, creative young lady.

    Imaginative creation of a serious outfit…UNIQUE!
    Love to find these styles on the streets….just superb!

  44. Linda

    she wears this dress very well. it looks a lot like street style in japan

  45. Catherine

    October 26, 2011 at 11:54 am

    Super cute; I love the shoes and I’m glad she didn’t go for the obvious skyskraper stiletto/platforms.

    October 26, 2011 at 12:51 pm

    I’m not sure which is more beautiful–the dress or her pose.
    This looks like a moment of modern dance captured on film.

    What an outfit! I could never pull it off but greatly admire those who can. Love the casual shoes with such a grand gesture of an outfit.

    October 26, 2011 at 1:08 pm

    Great dress…and it’s by Comme Des Garcons

  57. Martine

    October 26, 2011 at 1:08 pm

    Love the great shoes with the itsy socks. It is nice she didn’t do the heel thing.

  58. Martine

    October 26, 2011 at 1:11 pm

    Oh I have seen this dress before! I like how she wears it over a tank top!

  59. Mike Beauregard

    October 26, 2011 at 1:12 pm

    The shoes are GREAT. Glad that she went with a black and white choice for her shoes. They’re very in tune with the platform shoes that were presented on the runway from Comme Des Garcons. Bright outfit with neutral shoes. Perfect!!

    The Dress by Comme Des Garcons…presented on the runway.

  61. Kay Streit

    I believe the dress is from Comme des Garçons’ Vintage Scarf collection. Excellent choice.

    Wow. That is a cah-ray-zay outfit! I love the way it flows!

    Great! Is she wearing Comme des Garçons?

  64. Aster

    October 26, 2011 at 2:09 pm

    This dress looks very much like the deconstructed “Japanese” inspired clothes designed in the late eighties early nineties by various groups be it Japanese, Belgian or South Pacific.
    Complicated , original, edgy and intriguing!

  65. Fashionthroughtravel

    October 26, 2011 at 2:17 pm

    I think there’s a little bit too much layering going on, it’s kind of confusing…

    i love the creativity.this is inspiring.the colours,patterns,texture..the shoes!


    October 26, 2011 at 2:56 pm

    Such an interesting outfit! I don’t really think that the ‘socks’ trend is working here though..

  69. Lea -stil.werk-

    October 26, 2011 at 3:11 pm

    the shoes are nice. i love them. but the dress makes a terrible type of body. its creative but not more than that.

    It seems to me that I am the only one who is not completely overwhelmed by this outfit but whatever, lets spice things up!
    After all, this discussion is all about expressing our views and it would be boring without a variety of opinions.
    Honestly, this look seems rather tacky to me, and i dont mean that in a good way. too much patchwork-y dress and the tomboy-is creepers dont get along very well.
    But i appreciate a lot that you capture different styles and didnt stick to the conformist “skinny girls, long legs and hair, chanel handbag in one hand, starbuck in the other one” category.
    Keep going Scott, I am ahuge fan of your blog and your persona.

    This is actually interesting ! Is it a one-piece outfit ??


  73. andrea

    October 26, 2011 at 3:29 pm

    I think the dress is one of the SUPER EXPENSIVE (read 2 & 3 thousand dollars each!) scarf dresses that Comme des Garcons did for this season. They are truly works of art! (And they run really small- hey, it can’t hurt to try on, right?).

  74. J Umm

    October 26, 2011 at 3:34 pm

    genius idea with the draping skirt. the use of the pattern for the splash of colour is enough to draw you eyes straight to the statement piece.

    Well, it works well (garners a look-see) in Paris and on a fashionista. But is it attractive? Should one always aim at attractive when getting dressed? And if not does one truly want to “wear” a work of art? This is what I question while perusing this photo.

  77. anonymous

    October 26, 2011 at 4:35 pm

    Only in Paris, sigh! It is so wonderful to travel in your photos and see what is current in the great capitols of the world. I would love to own this dress, and she does look fabulous.

    It’s evocative of Comme des Garcon Fall 2011.

    October 26, 2011 at 8:41 pm

    I’m divided. Part of me wishes she had chosen a minimalist, precise heel to emphasize the rhythm of the draping and take some of the weight out, but the other part of me respects a good “fuck you” to both aesthetic balance AND heels.

    I also like the idea of the skirt as a maxi, with the brogues peeping out from beneath!

    Most of the “creative”, wildly eccentric ensembles simply make me look the other way. This one made me laugh.

    October 26, 2011 at 10:33 pm

    This dress doesn’t suit her…at all. She seems disguised. This dress could suit (eventually) for a very tall and skinny girl. But I admit it, it’s just a personal point of view.

    The shoes should have been six inch heels with a pattern. The shoes she is wearing makes her legs look unflattering.

    Edith ‘Little Edie’ Bouvier Beale: This is the best thing to wear for today, you understand. Because I don’t like women in skirts and the best thing is to wear pantyhose or some pants under a short skirt, I think. Then you have the pants under the skirt and then you can pull the stockings up over the pants underneath the skirt. And you can always take off the skirt and use it as a cape. So I think this is the best costume for today. (Grey Gardens 1975)
