what a beautiful photograph! it’s exquisite. The sculptor is so other worldly i feel it would be trite to comment on her clothes, however those prussian blue tights work really well. Wonderful, Sart, thank you.
mmmmm……not sure about this. Almost works, but the elements are not quite right. Definite eastern bloc look to it. Do like the colours though…and her dress/coat. If she were in Paris she would have saved herself with the perfect shoes or boots. The whole image is harmonious and gentle….
i love the way you see Russia! thats not that too much glamourous as we used to think. very interesting to find out ur impression from fashion week, as far as i know, You are visiting that event even without ur camera?
Everything is so harmonious! Something is definitely happening here. The combination of grays and blues of the outfit mimicking the background are very interesting as well as the contrast of her luxurious fur shawl against the dreary chipped walls. Her facial expression and gesture also gives a dark sweet warmth to this photo.
Love the muted colors; the rose-gray coat and blue-gray stockings. The colors are so harmonious and work very well with her complexion. It’s really beautiful how the colors are repeated in the fur. This is the kind of beauty that mimics the beauty found in nature.
She’s very cute. First impression was that she’d cleaned her brushes on her wrap, my favorite thing is the way the wrap relates to the background. Everything in the shot works beautifully, as if she’s wearing her surroundings or is a part of them. Great photograph.
Simply perfect. The pose, the clothes, the colours, tha background, the light, blue, vieolet, grey, a touch of yelow and black…. everything is so soft and pastel, I especially like the sharp and strong lines of her black suitcase, fine contrast!
PERFECT shot, Sart. Just perfect. The framing of her upper half in the archway. The light blue painted brick mimicking the dark blue of the tights. So gorgeous.
And the girl – WOW. I’m so in love. I can just picture her reading with tons of blankets on a Sunday morning.
Sart – question, how did she come to pose like this? Did you suggest anything? I just can’t imagine how someone who hasn’t modeled would have an instinct to pull that wrap up to her mouth – it’s SO PERFECT!
Great picture! Mood, attitude, color…starkly muted somewhat. As for the outfit…I like the bottom up…shoe, stockings, bag…but it breaks up with the dress and wrap. A jersey-cloth dress would work but the wrap leaves me wanting something else. Did I say great picture?!
The colors, the shades, the mood, all perfect. Sweet photo and a sweet looking girl – I especially love her shawl, very cozy. And I’m glad to see I’m not the only one doing navy tights and black shoes :)
OH! This photo and this woman have a timeless, beguiling Renoir-esque quality. All the more charming to know she is an artiste. LOVE this elegant ensemble, the colors, and will attempt to emulate it tomorrow!
Your blog is so cool…but why not take some trips down ‘south’ for fashion inspiration? This year, I’ve gained a lot from seeing fashion-forward people in Johannesburg, Rio and Accra. At least South and East Asia should be an obvious trip– so long as you’re in Moscow!
It looks cold (in all the Moscow photos, not just this one.)
I like the way that these photos bring out a side of Russia that is reserved for people who actually think about what they are wearing. I am sure that in finding these subject there would have been a huge amount of exposure to the trashier side of young modern Russian society.
commenting from behind what was once the iron courtain, I have to say, this coat (color+fabric) has a certain “socialist” touch… but nevertheless I love this! so much harmony in those soft colors. and the girl’s so sweet. lovely pic, as always.
She is very Russian, moreover she is very Moscowish (if I may put it this way). Forget glazy-faux-glamorous girls. They are longing for this, they’ve never seen good clothes until after-nineties. You can never understand. You never lived in USSR.
But this is true city-style of old classic Moscow.
Bravo for catching it. You do have an eye for this, I should say.
I made not only sculptures, but also I am engaged which than in the fashion industry – I draw on clothes and accessories))) also I do ornaments and interior subjects
(I work over registration of the my blog, I wish to place photos in it ) I wished to take to be photographed with myself a bag with my drawing on it, but it bright green and did not approach on style to all my clothes, therefore I took a small black small suitcase :)
