I just don't like the way the jacket and high-water, pegged pants make this person look like a pear. The bag makes me drool and I can almost see the haircut, although it's strange, too. I do like the head-on look – confidence!
The cut-away of the jacket combined with the taper in the pants makes her middle look like humpty dumpty (or like she's pregnant.) I like the individual pieces, and her haircut certainly makes her unique looking, but i find the overall silhouette to be pretty unflattering.
But who thinks that tapered pants are good? She has thin hips, so they're not so bad on her. But anyone with hips (and not just heavy people) end up with that unattractive ice cream cone silhouette. Don't we remember the 80's and 90's?
And her face is so beautiful, but that haircut is so severe.
Let's look at this outfit as just a really interesting outfit. Not as one worn by a female or male. I think she is exceptional. I would compliment her on the street. She also really seems like she doesn't care what anyone thinks, good or bad. Love.
She's eye-catching, but mostly because 1) it takes (at least) a double-take to identify her gender; and 2) the whole ensemble is so freakin strange. Love the bag, but don't like the high stance on the jacket, pegged pants, ugly shoes, or the unflattering bowl cut. But I've got to hand it to her; it takes a lot of guts to walk out of the house with this look!
What for? Maybe because she likes it? If there's one thing I can't stand it's people who come on here and ask WHY someone dresses or cuts their hair the way they do. Personally, I love it. People like her make the world more interesting.
I'm surprised so many people had a problem with this look, but it made me think about how we sometimes equate stylish with sexy. Some styles aren't meant to be sexy, though, just an outward expression of uniqueness. I personally love this.
interesting look, but i used to live in milan and this haircut is too extreme for me on a man or a woman. This is actually a woman, I met her a few times and she works for Prada – hence the 'forward' style
I really like this "Trappist Oompa-Loompa" look. I think it is very well put together and fun. Wondering if the photo was flipped – the jacket certainly looks like a woman's jacket but buttons like a man's. I think it is a terrific look.
Beautiful face!No sign of makeup and yet so naturally beautiful and captivating. Nothing wrong with her hair, just unique. Better than those generic "the city/hills" personalities. You know who I'm talking about.
unique. pudding bowl/monks haircut, muted palette, love trouseaus/jeans that are cut like this, little turnup, interesting bag but quite ugly, Jacket would look better with one button done up. shoes predictable but ok.
I am so drawn to looks like this that exaggerate a silhouette rather than balance it out; it's so much more interesting and it shows a certain level of confidence. It's how I like to dress – I've got hips and a midsection, hear me roar. It's great how she's injected so much femininity into a seemingly masculine look.
Is this bag ostrich leather? Because I heard the other day that ostrich feathers are really thick and so when the skin is made into a hide it leaves big holes when the hair is pulled out that make a strange pattern. Wooah if it is then that is so so cool!
Fabulous shot! Controversy in her style…..that is what makes art/style/so powerful for those of us who love fashion. It all works, she knows what she is doing and we can only respect the statement and enjoy! Thanks…..L
i hate the haircut, i don't like the jacket, i am indifferent about the bag and i don't like the vintage shoes. i like the red socks, and the face expression of this person makes me have sympathy about her despite what she's wearing.
I look at this woman and imagine someone who is inspired by indigenous dance forms and has started taking tap classes. Her boyfriend, who owns a gallery that sells old icons, finds her haircut adorable. She prefers Japanese prints and has some in her bag. The jacket belonged to her mother. She prefers Wendy's to Jack in the Box. She is wearing vintage perfume.
What a great combination of texture color and unexpected androgyny. She is so comfortable in her own oddness. She looks like she would have interesting things to say in a way that simple sweet girls don't.
Love her shoes and the whole look–she's got such a great sense of personal style. I'm so sick of cookie-cutter sex in the city women wearing 4-5 inch hooker stiletto heels and short skirts with bare legs. I don't care if they are $1000 Louboutins or Jimmy Choos, if they're that high, you look like a cheap hooker/fashion roadkill in them. I wish that awful trend would die and women would dress more like this amazing creature. But unfortunately heels seem to be getting even more extreme this season–is it a conspiracy against women?
it's funny…. a skinny effeminate boy can dress in heels and lace, throw his picture up on a fashion blog and it's "FABULOUS." a woman can cut her hair and dress androgynous-like, but put her picture up and she "doesn't do herself justice." whatever. thanks for giving her a voice, Sartorialist.
So typical, the woman doesn't have long hair, or some kind of Rihanna hair cut and lots of people think the outfit is ill-composed. I've seen tons of pictures with guys in this kind of outfit and everyone thought it was handsome. What's going on? She's the one of the few real people I see on here.
I don't care that I'm not crazy about each particular item, I enjoy the feeling I get of the photo as a whole. I think this person is very warm despite the somewhat cold aura surrounding the angular aspects of the outfit.
reminds me of tilda swinton. it has such an odd quality, but is also very recognizable at the same time. i love it. i am not convinced about the haircut with that face, but seperately, i love them both. this picture made me think the most of any of yours.
nice jacket + bag + pants= excellent. I can see his hair style is set for his overall style. But, it might be better if he puts a motive, such as red shoes or distinct color accessories. Because such style is too trendy(common) these days.
