On The Street……West Village, New York

This shot is about the overall look.
Those little black leather jackets I kept seeing in Paris looks great here in brown- yes, brown!
This shot is about the hair.

    Is the hair short, or is there something at the back there?

    I love brown, specially mixed with grey and black.
    Funny! I have the same dress, and I pair it with a short motojacket like she does.WEEEEE! She layers a lot more than me though. I guess it works for her because of her body. Her hair is in a ponytail (i guess) but she has long bangs…creating an illusion of short hair.

    Personally I find this alittle busy but she does look cute. (Especially continuing to hide her face under that scarf!) I like the distressed flat boots too. She’s slim enough not to look too bulky in such a layered outfit.

    I like the look.
    She’s done up for colder weather, and has the appropriate parts covered up.

    The heavy tights/leggings/pants look nice with the skirt, which is way too short to be wearing bare-legged in the nippy breeze we’ve been having.

    I’m not so thin and leggy and would look like someone wearing a lamp shade with such high contrast legs, so I think I’d go for leg coverings that were a bit more tonal with the skirt. This girl doesn’t need to worry about that!

    I like the color of her hair. Mine is too bushy to stay straight like that.

    Yes Scott, welcome to the Brown camp. All are welcome here. For our muse in the photograph, an outstanding use of layers on these autumnal days when it’s 42 degrees at dawn, then 60 degrees in the afternoon. “To err is human; to Layer is divine.”

    Boy, how do people get their skinny jeans so . . . skinny?

    I adore, nay, I covet, the jacket, scarf and booties.

    Too many things at the same time for my taste to look cool…but her face and the red hair are simply beatiful, so cute!!!

    Interestingly enough, I find this very reminiscent of Blade Runner but a little softer and more feminine. I love it!

    She is so cute! And she actually pulls off that kind of layering with absolute perfection! I haven’t smiled like this since I was wistling along in “Call an Ambulance” with Albert Hammond Jr this morning on the subway!

    georgetown leather design, 1973 — positively the same jacket. loved it then, love it now, but i have to admit it looks better on her than it did on me.

    Do you know whether this girl is from London?

    I have those boots in black and they are simply awesome! Might have to invest in the tan one too!

    I just bought my daughter what looks to be the same boots at the TopShop in London. She loves them.

    I think that’s Meat Packing …not West Village (in front of Lotus I believe).

    By the way …Rafe..why didn’t you do men’s line for your bags this season???

    Kinda dissapointed have to admit.

    had a jacket like this (bomber-style, with the knit cuffs), in black canvas cos i’m too poor for leather, cropped and cute, that i wore to death until i lost it just a couple of months ago. i am still mourning its absence. and also, i can’t find anything similar ANYWHERE!!! it’s tragic.

    the one i lost was from the gap, a couple of winters ago. anyone know anywhere i could get something similar? possibly in a similar, gap-esque price range?

    Scandinavia here. Almost every girl between 16-30 wear small leather jackets right now – so those of us who are genuine leather jacket lovers, prefer to put our jackets away until the trend disappear.

    Not really loving this one. A bit too layered and not keen about the boots.

    That I do believe is my friend Jenn, and she’s a model, just moved to NY from SF. She looks great.

    She looks lovely! Love the legs too.

    I have that dress – it’s from H&M. Good to see that budget looks great once you dress it properly.
