Sisters of a Style, NYC

The only thing better than shooting a person “one year later” is shooting sisters six months apart.

Of course I have to get them together for a shot soon.

    I would describe the first combination of clothing as cool; the acrylic and metallic silver colors from the scarf and leggings offer an interesting balance that is not overdone or mismatching. I think the look would not be complete if the scarf were not there.

    That’s amazing! But how do you know they are sisters? =)

    They’re too cute – it seems as though they could talk fashion and still go shopping together without fighting over the same piece on a rack! Convenient! :-P

    for florence
    When I shot the girl in the silver leggings she told me I had shot her sister this last summer in Soho and then described the photo.

    Pic 2
    suitable short blond hair to her square alomoste heart faceform. All her colores jumper,dress and hair in the color tone, very nice. Just like Mia Farrow haircut in Rosemary´s baby, Vidal Sassoon was the hairdresser that made him famous world wide.

    The top photo reminds me. I would love to see more photographs of polo coats. Do you know what I am talking about here? The thick, double-breasted camel hair coats with peak lapels, belted waist, and cuffs. Beautiful. It’s the right season for polo coats. You should see more of them now, especially in Manhattan. I’m sure if you stood outside Grand Central Terminal at rush hour, you would catch some top specimens. Commuter chic.

    I hate the first look. Especially the bag she is holding. For me its not style nor fashion or even good looking what she is wearing.
    But her sister looks stunning in the sumer dress, combined with heels and a grey cardigan. I want to credit ehr short hair too. I love women with short hair but not many can pull it off. She CAN!

    Twins? Anyway, the first pic is extraordinary in that the purse – how do you say – begets the scarf?

    The patterns are not the same but mimic each other.

    That’s my fashion lesson of the week.

    So many things to praise here: there are trends here, and yet overall she doesn’t look trendy. I never thought I’d like silver leggings, but these look great. The black, blue, silver combo is inspired, and the proportions here are spot on. A ++

    Thank you, Sart. I enjoy your blog everyday, but I also have a sister with whom I bond over clothes (among other things), so this is a particularly dear post to me.

    I absolutely love the contrast of whitish-blonde hair and rich, dark, bright blue. It has the same astonishing effect as red hair and forest green.

    The location of each shot was lucky…they fit the clothes.

    I remember the summer shot – I loved (and still love love) the softness of her dress and cardigan.

    Thanks for reminding me to call my sister!

    Aw I love it. The hair, the outfits, and the feeling I get from them is just great.

    Wow! How cool is that?

    Did they tell you they were sisters? How do you archive your photos to find the “other sister” from six months ago?

    i like both looks..except for the scarf and purse in the first picture..agree with silas..the scarf throws the flow of the outfit..I also really like how the backgrounds seem to fit what each sister is wearing.

    Can’t wait to see that shot of the two of them!

    Still loving summer sister’s floaty dress…still iffy on the cardi…but loving the dress.

    Love winter sister’s choice of blue top with her beautiful colouring, red lips, and blonde hair…

    Overall, I have to say your lighting in both shots is, as usual, extraordinary. The winter shot just shouts winter in dark blues and grays. The summer shot is like a beautiful yellow memory of 3 or 4 months ago…sigh…

    I like the combination of leggings, heels, and a long heavy coat..

    What a coincidence you met two sisters! They have personality and both are very pretty, but I’m not really fond of their use of color (specially first picture) and shape (specially second picture).

    Agree with the blond+blue and red+green. I would love to know your opinion about wich convination you think is best for a girl with brown hair. And for black hair?

    Now that is a beautiful and stylish family. I like how each sister’s style is unique and contrasting.

    I don’t know…that first look is too hodge-podgy for me. The leggings remind me of the tin man. She gets away with it because she’s young and cute.

    I completely agree with anonymous 10:06 AM: “I hate the first look. Especially the bag she is holding. For me its not style nor fashion or even good looking what she is wearing.” My thoughts exactly. Her sister looks great, but mostly because she is gorgeous and not really because of her clothes.

    FYI: the girl in the “summer look” is wearing all APC…the dress is from the ‘Madras’ collection from this summer…the camel wedge sandals as well. One of my favorite labels but not an obvious choice for most people…takes a bit of getting used to but, once you go APC you don’t go back!

    Hello Anon 5:11pm,

    I have dark brunette hair, and the colour I look best in is eggplant purple. If I had a darker skin tone, I would go with lavender purple. Every once in a while I dye my hair darker so that it looks black; then my best colour is crimson. Not “red” or “burgundy,” but brooding crimson.

    Thank you so much for asking. I’m flattered. :)

    I love both of their looks, but more for the sister on the top, she combines clothings that at first wouldn’t seem to go well, but she pulls it off.

    Sart,I have to ask: how do you always manage to find the perfect background for your subjects? Is it just serendipity? In that top shot, it’s just amazing how the geometric elements of the backdrop and her ensemble play off each other. Fantastic!

    The six-months-ago girl is in my class at F.I.T. – Dinah H. – and I can definitely say she’s a constant effortless style icon. Good choice. :)

    Something about her look is so soft, light…yet fresh and familiar.

    Love the space-girl leggings, blue shirt, black boots combination on the winter sister. What a fun style she has.
    I also love the subtle color combination of the summer sister.
    I think these outfits work for them because they both have great legs.

    It may be blasphemy to say it but they both remind me of Agyness Deyn. But better, of course. I like the contrast between the first, sunny and light and immaculate, and the second darker and more textured.

    I’ve seen silver leggings worn, but never to subtly. Nice.

    I like the short hair SO much! Very Mia Farrowish but I don’t think the girl in the photo paid $5,000 dollars for it which is what Mia did! That’s just crazy.
