Still bewildered by the apparently widespread eschewing of boots, or even really rugged lug-soled shoes, in the snow. These two are cool, but they’d look a lot cooler to me if they weren’t wearing shoes that are kind of ridiculous for the conditions.
Yes, heavy winter boots are totally necessary in the snow because things like heated cars and public transportation do not exist in Paris and Parisians have to trek many miles in the snow covered streets to get from point A to B.
They both look so great! I love this. I love his hat angled back on his head, and how the long coat manages to look so easy and unpretentious, and how the pants seem a wee bit short. And I love the fact that she’s wearing white oxfords in the snow.
While in theory I agree that there is beauty in a relaxed look and clothing that doesn`t wear you, in general I prefer to look at a style which I would either like to copy, or, even if I don`t specifically like it, makes me want to elevate my own look. The clothing that they are wearing does not bring me to either place.
But that`s one person`s opinion (and the beauty of The Sartorialist project).
Stylish combo on the girl. I particularly like the scarf and shoe co-ordination. I’d have liked to see some more colour in the guy’s outfit. Too much black for me personally. Love the mood of the photo.
Really nice shot/ scene. Like the moment here… Like they’re just chilling at the streets, looking fashionable. Aso the snow makes it a nice visual and enhances the contrast so they really pop out.
I like shooting on the streets now, with the snow giving that bright background…almost in the need of a ND-filter on my camera.
This is so `parisan’ to me!
The man’s baggy `clochard’ look is simply chic , and, the woman’s black fashion enlightened with an off-white muffler is modern with a a bit of romantic touch(skirt).
I love this couple’s allure.
It reminds me those days when I was studying fashion in Paris, more than 20 years ago.
Ha ha ! This is so Paris Marais-like. I’d say “arty-bourgeoisie-intellectuelle-hypsters”. I love their style ! There’s a story in their expression. Great and well-matched couple ! http://gare-a-gary.blogspot.fr/
I would see Johnny Depp dressed like this. I very much enjoy their expressions, she seems quite content she is being shot whereas him, he is intrigued to say the least. It’s almost like you’re stealing his privacy with the girl
They look like they spend to much money on their clothes and still look uncomfortable. To be honest, knowing what a coat and shoes like that costs and looking at their face expression, pose and age, I don’t think they worked for the money to get those clothes themselves, and it kinda shows. (or they worked so disproportionately hard for it, that it ruins their so desired illusion of being nonchalant) I just see typical Paris kids indeed, but that just means ‘lot’s of posing’ these days. It would help if they had smiles instead of smirks.
love what these two are wearing, ‘cept that it may be a tad difficult walking in snow with those shoes :p this shot reminds me of one time in michigan, when i was waiting for the bus at the side of the road with my pals after grocery shopping, and whooosh! a bus passes by and landed some dirty snow onto my pants and shoes. never again haha. *sorry random memory*
I don’t get it. Why would he make anyone uncomfortable? He looks a bit like a hipster, like her, but how is that scary?????? Am I missing something? Why would one make you feel different then the other when their clothing is sort of similar( well not similar, but the same esthetic) ? :/
Overall magnificent picture. Great tone range. That faded snowy back drop to the guy’s shoe pose. Facial expressions are intriguing. Almost like they aren’t sure it snowed, maybe this is a dream? Could be jigsaw puzzle material.
