I agree in that a Rick Owens jacket would be like a good pair of cowboy boots, a large investment but something for keeps. I do wonder how it zips up. In this case and subject, I happen to like the jeans and boots, slim legs balance the look, IMHO. Jorge from W Palm Beach
The background woman looks great…I think the focus of your shot has a great look (she must be built like a goddess), and she looks confident and comfortable. I don’t think it would be fair to dissect her looks as she seems to be pulling it off without any glitches. The look on her beautiful classic face says it all.
Love the body of the coat but not the sleeves. Even on someone this thin the sleeves look very snug. It’s not especially flattering, and I can imagine how anyone could wear anything with sleeves under it.
I think the wonderful thing about Emmanuelle Alt is that she is always able to make dramatic articles of clothing (like zebra or leopard print)look understated-that’s probably why she’s a phenominal fashion director as well. She’s also mastered the art of looking at ease, even when she’s wearing sky-high Christian Louboutins. To me, Emmanuelle always looks like the Parisian take on the Ramones.
I love everything about both the woman in the foreground, and the woman in the background. The woman with the Rick Owens jacket somehow manages to make those boots look amazine, and not cliche. And the woman in the back, well, I think her pants are leather, and I think she looks amazing in them.
Love it! Maybe because I’m in my 40′s, I can’t help but smile at seeing the slightly sinister Mugler/Montana influence on designers such as Owens and Junya Watanabe, etc. (and Neil Barrett, who I like better than Owens)
As in Mugler/Montana, the coat is ripe with edgy details……and of course, the all important zipper.
OMG…I can never get bored of EMANUELLE. She is the mega queen of the P-Voguettes. Thank you Cool Meister for the definition of Emanuelle as the “Parisian take on the Ramones”. I’ll take that one along for the ride. She can pull of the Loubs and TAME them with her androgynous flair…
The woman in the background is fabulous!!! I love the strong shoulders that don’t veer too far into the ’80s; her whole silhouette is coooool.
Hey Sart…could you find some people who look fabulous when it’s really, really cold outside and there’s lots of snow to wade through? I’m tired of looking like I’m on a ski holiday when out shopping in winter…
i actually looked at this photo for a good two minutes before i noticed the woman in the foreground. the woman on the right in the background completely stole the point of focus for me. she is stunning.
the jacket is gorgeous. But I am not fan of the mix. I would have wear more edgy shoes, something unexepcted. But do understand the lady, find the perfect mix is not easy for a Rick’s stuffs, unless you choose all Rick from head to toes. Advice some Ann Demeulemester shoes or boots with this jacket and pants. Cheers La Brigade de la Mode Paris
For those who feel ambivalent about this look, go to garancedore.fr and search Emmanuelle Alt. There is a photo(taken of Emmanuelle on the same day) which might give some a different appreciation of the outfit… Or you might just dislike it even more.
yeah, her look is kinda behind the times! I mean skinny jeans and ugg(ly)- looking boots? She could be from Philly! The jacket, while something different, is not very forward either. Thumbs down on the whole look!
It’s a great coat, but how warm could it possibly be if the woman in the background is comfortable wearing open toe shoes and a light jacket on the same day?
I agree with thesartorialist, and would love to see more winter coats that have design details and actually keep you warm. Though it seems that they’re hard to find on the street because they’re hard to find in stores.
Ahh Rick Owens! *drool* The boots are great, but I do agree about something being off with the jeans. Maybe if they were a more structured, stiffer, darker kind? Idk, I can’t quite put my finger on it. She still looks fantastic.
I simpy adore Emanuelle – she never overdoes it. Always really understated, almost monochrome. She is playing with shades of black/grey and different textures here – it’s her pins and the effortless chic attitude that make her stand out from the crowd.
I like this outfit, but not as a whole. I can appreciate the proportions– fuller jacket, fitted bottom, and boot, but I feel like the jacket should be the focus of the outfit, not the boots; simply put I think that the boots are to trendy to be anything meaningful. She is trying to do to many trends at once, and it can come across a bit cheesy. The boots, for me at least would look better with tights, a flow dress, a cardigan, and a belt, the simplicity of the upper half would make the boots the center of the outfit. Now, the woman in the background is effortlessly stylish, without being over bearing, she is doing a trend (leather legging/pants) correctly by pairing it with a classic fitted blazer.
I really adore Emanuelle alt rick owens ‘s jacket really look great .. I love her messy hair with gorgeous colthes it’s a real fashion …. U can’t learn it from a book but I think it come form herself characther.. but i don’t think a girl behind her so stylish because i’m really bored with this style leather jacket with blazer maybe it’s look good on her but it’s something boring..
