sart these pictures are fantastic, and the clothes are obviosuly very chic, fashion forward, etc., but your posts as of late have been all fashion industry -types. your most inspiring work is of people who have unique style because it’s innate, not because it’s their job and therefore have unlimited resources.
That blonde woman on the top picture has just about made my day. She is absolutely drop-freaking-dead gorgeous, not top mention tonnes of style. If she’s a model, then all the better because those pants are so cool, yet so unmodel-like.
wow… this is the first time i have seen an unflattering picture of carine. even in pictures where she strongly resembles iggy pop she looks right some how, in her element. perhaps it’s the stark lighting. the bottom woman also looks terribly out of place, though in a different way. her outfit is so not about daytime and bright sunshine. the top woman is terribly real and lovely. great picture.
I like this androgen style very much. her outfit altogether is so complete; short hair, black skin jacket, and those trousers! the long fringe with the short sides become so perfect to her triangular face form.
anon 11:04…her legs probably wouldn’t look cut off to you (they don’t to me) if she’d chosen black shoes. Tho I’m personally not into white shoes, I thought that she made an interesting choice wrt the white shoes. It does make the ensemble pop visually, even if it doesn’t fully work.
The blonde in the first pic is of model Anja Rubik, attending the Chloe show. And she looks fantastic diverging from the typical skinny pants, slim silhouette models normally wear. Definitely one of my favorite models.
That second photo is so fascinating on so many levels. Picasso-like with all the extremes: stick hair/stark shoes/ironed-out forehead /angular arm w/ the ferris wheel in the background. It’s very modern with a story to tell. On a fashion level – I don’t begin to understand those shoes.
Anya Rubik can wear anything. I adore the voluminous trousers with the cropped leather jacket, but wouldn’t want to see a non-model attempt it. And Carine demonstrates the chic way to carry an injured arm; no ugly white drugstore-issue sling for her!
This is what I love about this site and the pictures you take (thanks, by the way!)–that I can appreciate personal styles and outfits that I personally would never wear or even think about wearing. But I like knowing, and appreciating, that on the right woman or man, they look fabulous and absolutely right in every way. I don’t condemn the woman in the 1st pic because I know I could never pull off those pants–but she looks fab, no? And I’ve never seen a woman in an arm sling look so chic! For me, it’s all about personal style, and that is why I look forward to visiting this site every day, because it gives me a bit of style insight into other people and places. Bravo!
I must be the only one who thinks the girl in the first pic of the series has got it all wrong in terms of proportion. There’s too much volume involved here. And while I like the pants and the bolero respectively, I would never have teamed them together. Add to that the short do atop that long neck, well, it just makes her look like a pin-head quite frankly.
Anja makes me long for straight hair. Her look grows on me. When I first saw her in this outfit, I didn’t like it. I never liked Carine in those sunglasses. They do nothing for her. Who is the third attractive woman?
Alice olive: I still donÂ´t get you – you seem to like just everything presented. Am I a fool or what? Surely there are some pictures that you donÂ´t like so much? Wish you could open your heart or something.
I guess it shows how far removed I am from the fashion world, but I didn’t know these were models at first.. just women with great style sense. And then, after reading these comments, came to learn that these women ARE indeed models, and therefore DO have more resources at their disposal. It somehow made me feel a little disappointed. I guess I agree with Livie xoxo – I am most inspired by your photos of “regular” non-model types who simply have fabulous style.
First of all, Sart, why would you even publish an attack on another poster. You have the option to publish a post or not.
Second, Thank God for Alice Olive! She has been posting and reading as long as I have and probably even longer. She is one of the last really positive voices and what is wrong with that.
Everyone seems to feel like they can rip apart each featured person and that their comments are fact not opinion.
The whole point of this blog is not open season for unkind deconstruction but one man’s eye and who he finds interesting. If you don’t agree, he is not wrong for choosing them, you just differ in your opinions.
I can’t help but remember that amazing Dior Homme Femme 2 that got slammed because androgeny does not sit well with some.
Kindness and respect is not synonymous with having a closed heart.
Sart: I have already answered to why IÂ´m bothered when there is one person,maybe more who just love every single picture you place on the blog. It bothers me Â´cause I believe there are things we do like and things that we donÂ´t like. If you shut the other side of yourself you are not real/honest to yourself nor to others.
I love the Sartorialist photos, but I agree with the person who said that “regular,” cool-looking people are infinitely more interesting than professionally beautiful people (tall, skinny models, etc). In fact, I think the art in the Sartorialist postings is that the photos DO find beauty in all kinds of different people & looks.
