I love the composition of this shot. The faux fur jacket, the ipod earbuds, the tattered book, the food containers and cigarette package on the tray, and her kicked back pose… It all adds up to a great story shot. Love it!
That coat is absolutely gorgeous! And she looks amazing and she is so into her zone that it doesn’t even look like she is aware that her picture was taken. She is indeed stunning and stunning without even trying. I love it!
Is there anything better than a fur coat? My black faux Uniqlo one is my go-to for glam… I’m curious to learn how many men you’ve seen this season in fur, or perhaps mixed-medium, some fur trim on their coats?
I say this every time I post I comment. But this really is one of my favorite photos. Like so many of your great photos there is a story as well as great style. As Marcel du Chump noted above as one potential version. Just so wonderful. Thank you.
I don’t understand the comments about her feet up on chair. She’s lovely, the coat is fabulous, but what makes this photo especially nice for me is that it’s refreshing to see someone reading a book instead of a text message.
I follow fashion and am a huge fan of this blog, but am very sad to see her fur coat glorified in the comments about this photo. Animals who are killed for their fur suffer miserable lives. As a compassionate community, I just ask that we consider our choices and the impact we can have for good or bad. We’re all connected.
BTW…some time ago I bought the book ‘City Of Shadows: Sydney Police Photographs 1912-1948′ after you have mentioned it on your blog.
It was just perfect for my last post…thanx for being so inspiring!
She looks so calm, cool and unconcerned with whatâ€™s going on around her. Sheâ€™s in the zone!
Fur is such a popular trend this season. I wore my faux fur vest. Itâ€™s the perfect accessory to spruce up a look.
it’s not just about the fur jacket..i think the burgundy walls just like a link between all the elments in the picture,it just complete the whole image..and with that book and that zone that she put her self in…i love the whole thing ..amazing one
It is not just a book. It is an old, used book with rough edges, being read by a lady in fur. With a plastic pack of salad before her.
This is so self contradictory and thus interesting.
Kisses from (the most self-contradictory country of the world, at the moment, that is…) Greece!
P.S. Lately I am having many so-called Sartorialist moments when on the street and cannot stop spotting interestingly dressed people all the time… Pf, wish I had talent for photography and some spare time…
Gorgeous coat on a gorgeous girl. My girlfriend has quite a few fur items. It’s a pity that she doesn’t wear them more often. I think people assume that they’ll be stigmatised for wearing fur (because it’s perceived as barbaric to kill animals). I think wearing fur is as natural as eating meat. And the truth is that most fur items out there are bought at charity stores anyway, so the animal has been dead for decades. I love fur – wish I could find a way to wear it as a guy.
My goodness what snipey comments on a wonderful photograph of a compelling individual—*love* the bump on the nose, makes her so strong and unique, not just another pretty fashion face with the perfect figure, and oh, those shoes! Are they Prada? So fabulous. (and, NOT heels)
On a recent shopping day, I saw a similar (or isn’t it the same ?) faux fur coat.
I wanted to buy it but felt like it wouldn’t suit me or that people would stare at me in the streets like (“Omg, she killed her own puppie !” or “Geez, she looks like a grizzly !”).
Then, I dropped by your blog and found out this picture of that beautiful girl.
I don’t know what but something definitively happened and I told myself, “You’re gonna get back to that store and if the coat is still there, just grab it”.
I went in today and guess what ? Not only, it was still there BUT it was on sale !
It’s purely an anecdote story but really, thank you ever so much, Scott for showing me how to be more daring and just following my instincts.
Wish you and Garance a wonderful time in Morocco xx
