I am crazy about the mossy stone steps and how their horizontal power plays against the vertical lines in the fur. The “wrong” button disturbs all of that rectilinear order and gives the image a vibrant tension.
Her shoes remind me of the days that I forget to change out of my slippers to drive my daughter to school…
For some reason, this coat reminds me of Jean Patou’s cocoon shaped coat creations and also remind me of the nonchalantly thrown plush fur coats by the flappers of the 20′s and plus a plush bathrobe. It gives the feel of leisure and casualness but, not screaming and serious glam 1980′s look ( eventhough, she may have intended to mix some 80′s accents–kinda Krizia esque too). Overall, unique look!
I like the way the coat has a flow..it’s natural. But I don’t like the shoes..I normally love yellow shoes but these don’t fly with the black tights and the black trousers. but the coat is great, v natural
are we sure the coat is buttoned at all and she isn’t simply at an angle w/ her right arm bent at the elbow just such? also, to jorge, “how do they do that?” in reference to the steps?? i believe you can thank condensation and the sun for that masterpiece.
At first I was not too keen on this outfit as a whole. I liked it from the waist up, but the whole thing together didn’t suit me. Then I saw the colors of the steps in the background, and the whole outfit came together for me. I love her earrings and hair style- they’re so elegant.
This doesn’t really do it for me. i have the impression she is wearing her pyjamas under that coat. though the earrings are nice. looks like she had to rush somewhere early in the morning which made her grab the coat she wore last night and leave.
Its all about the messy buttons..and of course the geisha inspiration of the sock in the sandals. Her fur coat properly buttoned she would look like any other normal lady but now she has a little yamamoto edge that makes it look funky and stylish.
oH i do love this character she looks like a little bit old school butch/femme movie star a little bit grey gardens.. She has a sense of nonchalance can feel her character..has she just got up and slipped on her favourite old bobbled cashmere trackpants under that gloriously misbuttoned coat what about those wonderful comfy cork soled shoes teamed with socks..are they kept beside the bed(house slippers?) Wonderful.
