Once in a while I will meet a young man who dislikes his youthful appearance; I tell them youth is both the best outfit and the best accessory. Similarly, you could put these ladies in burlap dresses and they would look outstanding- but God will you look at that fitted below-the-knee skirt on the left!!! I like the light reflection on the right heel of the girl on the left. Jorge from W Palm Beach
The contrast between the starkness of the white of the wall and the black of the figures is striking, to say nothing of the fullness of the coats against the shapeliness of the women’s slender legs. Exquisite!
Black. Dull white. Gray. A street exhibiting no joy. A fitting photographic metaphor for winter in Milan, as well as the state of the world in 2009. Yer these two young women–with the exuberant height of their heels and the flirty fit of their coats–speak to the resilience of the human spirit. A shot that goes far beyond fashion, at least to this viewer.
Those girls are beautiful. At least from this perspective! Twins? I love the shoes and the hourglass figure! So dramatic. But it all seems very playful! Love it! Do you know the shoe brand! They’re exquisite!
This is amazing, the richness of the black against all those grays, the vivid shape of the girls and the little heart-shape of light peeking through between the waists – and I love that seeing a tiny bit of the face on the right makes this shot totally human. Beautifully dressed too. Wonderful
O how sweet! They’re like two hip novice nuns, or maybe the latest thing in uniformed schoolgirls. Love the flash of “nude” leather from the bootsoles of the girl on right. Designers haven’t exploited the highheeled shoe/boot sole enough, by the way–it’s a kind of fashion erogenous zone, and to my knowledge only Louboutin has really used it (with his signature vermilion soles).
I see tweens walking around every day. Dressing the same, walking the same, hair in the same style. I see this photo: Uniform dresses, similar hairstyles, but each one brings a different variety, and expresses different styles. It’s simply chic!
Girls like these are the reason I love traveling to Europe and walking the streets. I can’t tell you how many women I saw with this silhouette (a true uniform of sorts this winter) and they drew eyes everywhere they went. They are a wonderful reminder that winter clothing doesn’t necessarily mean a loss of femininity and youth.
Time travel, self replication, and dualism incarnate. Too beautiful to be real. Look at the negative spaces between their legs-too perfect, and the heart-shape between their waists? I wonder what kind of advice/encouragement she’s giving herself. You’re eavesdropping on the immortal. Thank you.
She never remains foolishly gratified with her appearance after a cursory glance at the front view, but remembers that all the world does not bow before her; to many it is her back that must mainly be visible. (Jean Worth, 1914)
I am struck by their simple hair. Looks natural, not with some horrible color job with unreal magenta or overdone zebra streaks. No of-the-moment cut that will make them cringe later. They will have no regrets.
Fabulous, stylish, elegant, classic, chic. I adore this shot, the colours, the clothes, the mood, the lighting..it’s perfect!! Sart, this would be a great back cover for your book that you simply MUST do SOON!!
Look at these two! I can’t see their faces but I want to party with them. They look wicked fun. The leggings, the heels, the hair so devilish. They make me want to be Marilyn Manson dressed in a slim black and white gothic looking suit.
what a fookin' great shot! I've been enjoying this blog for a while now and i think this is my favourite photo/scene yet. I wonder what they might be chatting about, where they're going…. just fantastic.
