A beautiful woman. It’s amazing how much a photo can tell us about a person without even seeing the face. Everything is beautiful in this photo – watch, ring, bag, shorts, shirt, sweater, nail polish, legs… I wish I knew which shoes she had on!
This I like. Apart from the fabulous mix of fabrics, she has flawless legs but still doesn’t go too short with the shorts, as opposed to the earlier shot (last week?) of the woman in the red boucle jacket whose bun-baring shorts rode up her crotch and left little to the imagination.
I always thought that clothing (not ‘fashion’) should complement the individual, express the personality of the individual and celebrate the individual.
I hate these photos of parts of a person, and parts of an outfit. I find it insulting to the person, who is, in fact, a person!, an individual! who has assembled a compete look, not a collection of different parts.
The most intriguing part of any outfit is the individual who wears it – the face shows the history and meaning of any outfit. Not including the face in a shot is just ‘fashion porn’ – totally alienated from the person wearing it.
These shorts are from the famous Prada “golden collection” (spring-summer 2002). I have a pair of trousers from the same collection made of this golden fabric with a navy pattern. They are sleeping in my closet for a couple of years. This photo makes me want to wear them again. With a nude knit : what a great idea ! I used to wear them with a navy top and a black blazer, but nude makes the best effect. I love this match of a sophisticated fabric with a casual knit.
Thank you for this photo !
