I love that one person thought this was a male, and another thought this was a female! It truly is an androgynous look! While I’m under the impression that this is a male, it totally doesn’t matter as far as the look goes. Everything from head to toe works for either sex. So simple and totally classy.
So no idea whether this is a girl or a guy but that just makes it better. Not even kidding, either way I think this person is very sexy. And the way the hair has a profile up against the wall is so intense. Love it.
the hair, the ensemble, the flat figure, and the pose scream “he”, but if you look closely, their facial features are distinctly female. i vote “she”! also, i like how the camera also serves as an accessory in place of a bag.
love the added definition of the arm with the tight black tee underneath. I think that’s what really emphasizes this look and also enhances the shot. the body line is almost as straight as the one on the wall!! love it.
He is definitely a guy because of the body. It is the nose, small lips, chin and hair that makes him look like a girl. He has a flat chest, protruding brow bones, strong forearms and a high square forehead.
The REALLY interesting thing about this shot is to view it with the idea of the rule of thirds in mind. Intellectually, divide the young man’s image into thirds. - Top of the head to the bottom of the t-shirt sleeve. - Edge of the t-shirt sleeve to the curl of the fingers into the pants pockets. - Edge of the pockets to the soles of the shoes.
How does this represent Sydney or Australia? He looks like he could be on any street corner in New York or Europe. You seem to be searching for people who look similar to what you’re used to. Same comments for the girls in heels. I was recently in Australia and if you look at most of the retail fashion, i.e. the Aussie-owned brands that sell in Australia to Aussies – they are significantly different than what we get here in NYC or Europe.
hmm. im a bit underwhelmed except for the fact i cant figure out this person’s gender (but either way, he or she would be nicely dressed). surely there are much better dressed people at RAFW??
a quick question (which you may not want to answer, id understand!) but how come you’re pictures have a “darker tone” about them. im not too sure about the weather in sydney, but im just surprised they are not brighter or have more light in them.
is it a reflection of your take on the fashion? or is it the weather? or do you simply like these darker tones?
@Sudindienne, I’m a Sydneysider and I disagree- I think this is representative of the indie crowd in Syndey and sure, it is pretty much the same as the indie crowd everywhere else (from what I’ve seen!).
not a fan. its average. however the fit of the pants/jeans is very good. can some ppl explain to me wats with wearing a t-shirt with a scarf? i dont see how it is practical to do so. u keep ur neck warm, but wat about the rest of ur body? to me it makes more sense to have some long sleeve stuff on before the scarf comes into play
In Sydney, as soon as it gets a bit cooler than usual, people will grab a scarf before grabbing a jumper. You’ll see lots of people in short sleaves with a scarf, specially this time of year for season change.
Jiggie smalls: yes I’d also like to know the brand of the shoes, any ideas anyone? I’ve been looking for a descent pair of black pumps for ages, but everything I’ve seen is just trash compaired to these!
