On the Street… Thirty-Seventh St, Silver Lines, New York



I asked this young lady to stand in front of the silver grate behind her because I thought it went so beautifully with the colors of her outfit.


I didn’t notice, until she was standing there, how harmoniously the horizontal silver lines of the grate, the vertical silver lines of her skirt, and the diagonal silver lines of her sneakers create a symphony of directions.

    I agree about the many lines going on here, that is why it’s a very interesting photo and interesting shirt, wonder what material that is.

      please tell me what the sneakers are. I love them. I have a skirt very like this, only black, not silver. it is vintage Agnes b. from the 80s

        To all those asking, the sneakers are called Pure Boost, by Adidas. They are possibly the most comfortable shoes you’ll ever wear, and a lot of the colors are pretty sweet.

    Amazing combo! I love how we are moving from the form-fitting sexyness to this new kind of casual beauty. In love with the sparkly grey maxi, a definite winner!

    Beautiful picture indeed!! I like the recent way of wearing sneakers: not only with sporty clothes but also with skirts and dresses; it’s very insipiring.

    Beautiful skirt. But I have to say I am completely tired of sneakers. They have become ubiquitous. I always disliked them, and then came round to them with certain outfits. But everyone is wearing them all the time with everything. Bring back the shoe!

    I am looking for a great fall shoe. I would like flat lace-ups but with a bit of a platform. But not an exaggerated one. So far, no luck.

    The sneackers are ‘nothing special’ Adidas ones, for a european like me ;-).

    I liked the zig-zag pattern in the parting in her hair , totally in style with the outfit

    Sart, would you consider using “women” instead of “young ladies”?
