COULD NOT BELIEVE MY EYES. Being Indian myself( Though I do not live there) I could not believe something so progressive and uber mordern could be seen on an Indian street! It looks like she walked out of a Marc Jacobs runway show. I love the masculinity of the whole outfit from that retro,buttoned shirt to those folded up shorts(probably her dads).PERFECT!
This girl has a very interesting mix of strength and innocence. The top picture with that Close Up is brilliant. The white background with all those old textures is very mysterious; it somehow looks as if she was in a cloud. The blouse and those shorts create a very interesting mix of patterns and colours. Very special shots.
These India shots are very refreshing, and remind me that style is all about people and what they have on the inside too– personal choice and vision, not just money. Very touching and energizing– and your eye is marvelous as always.
WOW! this ought to be on the cover of NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC.. considering most of us in the world have black hair, brownish eyes, and chocolate skin.. this girl serves as a wonderful stylish antidote to the bias towards white westerners… thanks, for rebalancing our mindsets.
The way she’s wearing the blouse is very interesting to me. Buttoning it all the way up gives it a stronger vertical and emphasizes the collar shape, but then the casual pushing up of the sleeves prevents it from looking prim, which the print could easily lean toward. Nice.
This version of the sandals and tights look is so inspiring because it plays against the masculine shorts. The detail of the bracelet adds heft to this interesting combination of gender-blending styles. I might have liked to see a belt, and/or a bag. The eye makeup is sleek – a lovely touch.
i love this picture. i love every sartorialist picture, but this one is especially cool. i would kill for those shorts! i love the slouchyness yet clean lines of them. the black tights go extremely well with everything. this is one of those looks where you’d think that the individual pieces wouldn’t go together at all until you see the finished product. LOVE THIS!
An interesting combination, but as Avinash stated the look does mirror offerings from Marc Jacobs. I love it! The eye makeup…that’s subtle beauty yet daring and still in your face all at the same time. How did you find her?!
I love how her shirt is buttoned up all the way with that really girly girly innocent print, and the tied hair too adds this extreme school-girl innocence but the overall look has a really contrasting ultra-cool hip edge with a lot of individuality and personality (for something that maybe could had been a school uniform with the objective of ppl blending in, well she surely sticks out of the crowd!)
Her face is beautiful–terrific eyes especially. I’ll be the dissenting voice and say I’m not enthralled by the outfit. I think it makes her waist look thick and her body a bit out of proportion to her head. I do like the way the bracelet goes with the shorts.
Probably THE two best shots you’ve ever taken. You’ve really captured this girl… her personality and her clothes. And isn’t that what great style is about? A combination of the two? Give us more like this.
Its funny that the folks of India would need to be trasported to New York, London, etc… to earn their urbane, metropolitan fashion-forward stripes (as if being in India places them on some tiny island devoid of contact with the Western World). Great pics’, just not a fan of the fashion– the lines/silhouettes/fit are just to awkward for me (not to mention the patterns/color combos; not really daring just different from what’s typically seen through the Euro-centric Western fashion).
Some of these comments make me incredibly uncomfortable. Fashion and style exist outside of European/American cities. Just because I am have brown skin, am stylish and work in fashion does not mean that I should be portrayed as some exotic alien on the cover of National Geographic. For the record: America also has “beggars and whatnot,” on the streets â€” and India’s individuals most definitely have their own sense of indigenous (and clearly ingenious) style. If anything, Miuccia and Marc are looking at this lovely woman â€” not girlâ€” and thinking of copying her look for an upcoming season.
Okay, NOW I am offended. No, not by the picture, but by Avinash’s comment. Shame on you Avinash for sounding so surprised that an INDIAN could be so stylish. I mean, really, what world do you live in? When was the last time you walked down an Indian street? I suggest you do that really fast, and get your Indian sensibilities back in place.
It’s great the The Sart is in India and has put New Delhi in spotlight, but really! You want to tell me that there are no badly dressed individuals in Manhattan and Milan? Reality check, young man… will do you some good.
Amazing! Love the preppy/stylish look! The neatness of her pulled back hair, buttoned up blouse, and pleated shorts with the different prints of each item is great! Her bow mules and bangle add character, and her silver eyeliner is subtle and fresh..
This could probably be one of my favorites you have ever posted. So fun, and such beautiful, soft colors. I love it! I, personally, from ignorance, wouldn’t have thought you could find something like this in India. <3.
A great look… the blouse (to me) seems slightly western, a great pairing with the oversize shorts that have a pinkish tone that compliments the top. The masculinity is toned down with the girlish bows on the shoes, while the black tights add some drama and contrasting texture. The bangle is my favorite part: feminine, yet earthy and natural.
Sat: I thought it might be unintended because I didn’t want to assume this woman was consciously trying to incorporate New York. I don’t incorporate New Delhi fashion into my wardrobe, so it would be silly of me to assume she bases her fashion on a North American sensibility. Or maybe not.
To aitch: Your defensive and somewhat impulsive tone hardly intimidates me. Perhaps you haven’t quite grasped what I have expressed, which, in my mind evoked inspired admiration more than anything. I strongly suggest you look up the meaning of “sympathy”. Maybe then you’ll comprehend. And relax.
Browsing through the comments I actually see how many people you reach out to now. It takes certain assignments to get the demographics commenting and most people don’t understand that fashion and style is more about culture than location. Third-world countries such as India or the Philippines (you should come some time even though I’m in the states) are just as stylish as their Western counterparts but some people are too close-minded to see that. Keep it up playa deuce.
