I love the two. it’s interesting how the silluette is so similar, with the coat, the fur, the skirt, the shoes. nevertheless, they both still look really individual. and because of the textures, the colours and possibly because the shoes are not open, the first one looks a bit more wintery and the second one more spring-appropriate.
Elegant but casual- sophisticated but playful. Dark and moody yet inspirational and daring.
The almost ankle length cut of the skirts is so interesting to look at. The layers of lace, cotton and sock and shoes is perfect. I find all of these things so surprising because they are all so different and but go so well together. Creative women.
As always the composition on these photos are superb. I wish I had a camera like yours Mr. Sartorialist! Your quality of photos is so fresh and authentic. Keep em coming! xx SS
Interesting. In the first shot, the clean line down the back sets off the wonderfully luxurious fall of the collar. Great flow and line. In the second, the fabric of the coat is too bulky and doesn’t mould to the cut.
The coats are beautiful, the skirt lengths are beautiful, those soft fur collars are beautiful, the look is just so polished. I wish they were holding one of those loooong cigarette holders from the thirties!!! I can just keep looking at them and enjoying it.
I love, love, love, love the anklets, especially with the glitter shoes. Anklets hearken back to a time that we romanticize, but was anything but romantic. WWII. Stockings were a true luxury, if one could find any at all.
This is a lovely reworking of early 20th century shapes and textures. Even though I really am so tired of shoes-as-imprisoning-sculptures I’d still rather look at these elegant women than the 1980s ski jacket passed through 1920s cocoon-coat cutting software seen lately!
Love the contrasts in the second photo–lace and tweed, socks & sparkles. And while it seems counter-intuitive, the series of horizontal lines from the belt down (belt, coat hem, skirt hem[s], sock top, shoe top) makes her look really long & lean.
Beautiful portraits. The woman in the second photo is especially alluring-I would love to see the rest of that dress-looks lovely and delicate. It’s especially beautiful paired with the more robust accroutements of winter dressing and the platform shoes.
Without those shoes that skirt length would be frumpy. With the shoes, its elegant! Besides, the shoes are platform, so they are very comfortable to walk in. Its shoes that have no platform but make you arch your feet that are painful beyond belief.
