      yeah, that caught my eye too! And raw denim, absolutely in love with the combination.

    The low-cut leather boots are perfect for her size and I like her coat and fur collar

    Her male jeans and boots are so stylish!

    Great photo…I see a lot of cuffed pants on both women and men. Like the fur trim. Work boots create a certain look that works for her and not for me. : )

      Right!! Anything bigger than a six or seven boot and the look is completely different!

    I sense a “if you’re are thinking of…working boots” coming.
    I’d like to have a better view of this jacket-parka-coat combination that looks fantastic.

    Oh my gosh, she’s beautiful! The coat is BRILLIANT! And the boots… Seriously, January HOF, good sir. For the win this week!

    Love how in the photo the laces seem to have a mind of their own.

    The streets are telling us something about work boots!

    Is that Sandra Oh? The woman looks a great deal like her and Sandra has great personal style.

    • Francesca

      January 10, 2013 at 10:45 pm

      My exact same thought!

    • LIZPR

      January 11, 2013 at 9:53 am

      Hiya … it isn’t Sandra Oh (who is Korean Canadian) and this woman looks Japanese to me. But both have ridiculously gorgeous heads of hair!

    Work boots are obviously becoming a big trend in italy!
    But they look fantastic with this outfit.

    Your shoes are beautiful!


    January 10, 2013 at 6:53 pm

    beautiful shot :)


    January 10, 2013 at 7:26 pm

    The combination of the boots and jeans is pretty good. But the combination of boots, jeans and her hair and face is sensational. What a beautiful woman and how beautifully her clothes compliment her.

    So bummed that they are only available in men’s sizes!

    Great boots!

  25. Dogwalk

    She’s great in her man outfit!

    I dig it. She balances it well.


  27. Jen

    January 10, 2013 at 8:18 pm

    Absolutely love this look! Like tough-looking boots with a classic tweed coat :)

    Though I’m not a work boot fan but she looks great! Love the pose (or maybe lack of…)!

    great shoes! Makes me feel like taking a walk…and I love it that so many people know who makes them. That was my next question.

    I like how you captured her while she was unaware, it makes the photo more interesting.

    Work boots for women : my new obsession!

    See you,

    Workboots are so cool, droool… love the masculine touch!

  38. Nomadic D.

    YES. I have a pair of Carolina logger boots that I adore, and I’m totally convinced they go with everything. They make me feel tough and powerful, and they look good on top of it.

    Really perfect pic. Nice day.

    Women at Pitti are so cool. They’re the best.

    It’s in the details and the way they work together:
    How the denim fits with the thick wool and the heavy boots, grey/black/navy, everything just works. It’s about balancing the weight of the material with (although we don’t see it, except for the rolled up hems) length of the pants and coat, which have to be just right, not to make it look baggy.

    So, attention-seeking fashion-week ladies with the usual mix of pink, orange and a dash of neon-green, how about this!

    Love it. Keep snapping these truly cool girls! Very inspirational.

    I love how you capture that moment here!

    love how she looks so comfortable but stylish at the same time- not easy to pull off

  43. Eva

    Beautiful shot and great outfit. Simple and cool!

      Well you have to wait till september it is a new line …

      The jacket isn’t available yet. It’s part of the first Nigel Cabourn womens collection dropping this year. Keep an eye out!

    Enjoyed this one so much, thank you! I am inspired by all of the wonderful textures from the lovely lady’s hair to her clothing to the emphasis of her boots. Also, my favorites of your photos are usually of blue or grey outfits and details.

    I love it, the look is intentional and practical!

    Ok, the boots are nice…but the hair is stunning. I love the feeling of motion with bits of it flying around. Very nice shot.

    Great style, fabulous hair. Wild.

    A beautiful woman, but I think this may be a sign that the $300 “work boot” trend is nearing its saturation point.

    Very cool look

    this photo reminds me of how far women’s fashion has come in the past 100 years, crazy to think about it.

    Gorgeous style!

  57. Chelsea Patricia

    Yep, I do LOVE the boots. It seems in the past year, I have decided that heels are simply not worth the discomfort vs. flats, so boots are my go to choice. Like, always.

    Gorgeous! Love her hair.
