i love that tie in the first image. i just wrote about these (for women) and found a lot of awesome styling on lookbook etc. – i’m glad people are taking the tie away from it’s old Avril Lavigne image (in the case of girls)
You know what I really love about that picture? That her coffee cup matches her skirt – but exactly. The right shade of red and all.
Although, realistically, the whole look appeals to me: the colors, the polka dots and volume of the skirt against the straightforward colors/textures/fit of the top half, the detailing at the top of the ankle boots. I like this a lot. Rockabilly and vintage style executed well.
On him: No (too “look at me!”). On her, gorgeous! And it is probably because the skirt, the bolero sweater, and the boots (Alaia?) have scalloped/filigree edges to them. The perfectly executed scarf on her head tells you: yes I know I am wearing an attraction-grabbing outfit and I know I can pull it off. Jorge from WPB
I saw that lady a few times at RAFW and she looked equally amazing every day.
It’s refreshing to see someone who makes an effort, and does not disguise it behind a messy “i’ve just thrown this on” look even though everyone can tell they spent hours ensuring the rips in their stockings are perfectly placed.
I love the bright red. The gentleman looks like one of the band members from The Horrors or a bull fighter. The woman looks like mini mouse, she very elegantly pulls off the bow on her head without it making her like really young.
I like the lady in the red skirt. It’s a combination that might overpower some, but works on her because she’s so comfortable in an outfit that loud. It’s too bad there weren’t as many shots of Melbourne, although I must say that this winter in Melbourne has been a bit drab. Everyone is wearing black, maybe it’s because it’s cold and dreary and we all have SAD.
I’m a huge Sartorialist fan, but I must confess that I’ve found the entire Sydney sequence a bore–not a single snap is comparable to virtually anything from Milan or NYC. Moreover, how about more pictures of sharp-dressed middle-aged men? Enough already with the emo types! Thanks.
The woman in the polka dot skirt, scares me…..but in a good way. What I love about your photos, is that aside from being gorgeous and thoughtfully composed… There’s also a wonderful Diane Arbus/Weegee subversive quality to them.
Aww Miguel. A terribly stylish lad. I’ve had to good luck to work with him a couple of times. There’s never a time he doesn’t look perfect. A bunch of us friends went out to dinner here in Brisbane at this cheap, dingy little chinese place in Fortitude Valley and he wore a full-length kilt. Don’t ask me to remember who made it, but it was perfect.
wondering why you took so many Sydney shots and only a couple of Melbourne shots when you visited Australia. I have found the people in melbourne to be much more stylish, fashionable, innovative and creative!
I love her. And she’s totally in aus- note the empty hand where a cigarette would dangle if she were in Europe.I also really like the bare legs with boots. Brave, and totally worth it. p.s Devastated not to see more Melb pics.
The bullfighter and the flamenco dancer. I love elements of each of these. The bows (her in the hair, his in the tie), the brights balanced by black. I’m wondering if there was some reason they were dressed so reminiscent of Spanish history, or a happy coincidence that Sart saw two people embodying this style?
The Guy is a friend of mine – let me just say that this is just a SMALL taste of some of the feats of style that this boy is capable of! He doesn't 'dress up', this is honestly his day-to-day wear. He wore a suit to my birthday that I would have killed a small child to own myself.
She absolutely owns the red. It doesn't overwhelm nor define her – it simply IS her. Not only is it physically complementary, but the flair expresses a confidence and spice that no other uniform could capture.
