Love the jacket with the rolled cuffs – noted the way the plaid matches up. I like what I can see of the trousers – fabric looks wonderful. If I were wearing this outfit I would feel too “costumey” with the tie, but that’s just me. And I am a big fan of this color scheme. Again I appreciate the muted colors in the background complimenting the colors in the clothes, tying the composition of the photo together. Great work!
To Anon V.: I think you’re missing the point. It’s not weather or not you think she’s being original or wearing something different than she usually does. The point is inspiration. Personally, I love the casual chic nature of the coat. I think it’s something I could pull off in my vintage girly wardrobe.
this model reminds me so much of myself at that age. i still pretty much wear my hair that way – same type. insouciant.i got a little more strict with age. she’s great. cool girl, having fun with fashion!
A very creative way of putting different clothes/elements together. Hard to pull off the jersey pants w/ the plaid jacket. I don’t feel it’s a matter of the fact that she’s Irina that she can pull it off. I just think the Europeans are more daring when it comes to putting a look together. It’s not what you wear, but how you wear it. Wear with confidence and you can make it look good. (I hold my cigarettes that way too, when I walk into a crowd, prevents the butts from burning innocents)
For the most part I think this is awful. The pants might be cute with something else but the rest makes me think of a stinky old man. Nothing revolutionary, new, or repulsively eccentric enough about it to land in the successfully ironic category.
Quite opposite to what Irina was aiming for with this look, I think it all seems too contrived. In theory it should be perfect: boyfit blazer, messy shirt and tie nonchalantly tucked into trousers and finished with a fag. But seeing it on her, it just looks try-hard. Maybe shes too pretty for this type of look? Because I think it works best on the androgynous types. I just dont buy it, but I think if I saw her walking down the street looking like that then I’d still swoon a wee bit.
she’s irina lazareanu? good friend of pete doherty? introduced to the fashion world by kate moss herself.. if you stumble upon more photos of her out and about.. you’ll have a wholy different perspective of how great her style is and how different it is from kate. and yeah, she mentioned one time that annie hall influences her closet at the most.
