The crispiness and sheer quality of the garments torments me on the elegence that is showcased so perfectly; The structure of the pants are quite incredible; a question of structure to comprehend for a mind…Captivating. X Neda X http://stylemontage-neda.blogspot.com/
This styling is so seemingly architectural. The hard edge between the pant and the jacket, the sloping yet squared belt, and the platform shoes … all look like the beginnings of a great building. I love it.
I am intrigued by her pants, which are too big. That gap on the left side amuses me, though I really can't understand how her pants are staying up sans a belt! Nonetheless, that shift with the sweeping fabric is amazing.
She has stunning facial expressions, and the movement in her outfit itself is amazing. Her face and clothes as a whole makes me feel that sheis hiding something, maybe a rebellion or something allong those lines. Such a cool photo! http://joannafashionnerd.blogspot.com/ -Fashion Nerd
I agree with the last comment about seeing Margiela on the street. These conceptual ideas are sometimes so crazy you'd never think you would see an actual real person wearing any of it. But how exciting that here she is in all her reality standing on the sidewalk in a pair of trompe l'oeil trousers, and, red lipstick to give it a bit of life in that gray London air.
PS. her pants = unbelievable, but I've lived in London and who tell me WHO can walk around in platforms that high??!! i've never seen it IRL. Sartorialist, you are luckier than I in finding the fabulously-shodded :)
I saw on this day and she is so beautiful. She is ACTUALLY like this photograph. I am surprised scotty didn't pap her from behind as the slits going down the back of the trouser leg are one of the best bits of the look lovely hues
She really executes those Margiela pants well; they appear so wearable! The simplicity of her makeup and the cool colors of her ensemble keep this look sophisticated and not over-the-top. I love the way the hue of the trousers corresponds with the background of the photo. Great composition!
I'm with comment #3 – the outfit is confusing, i.e. what's this around her midriff? a belt? how do the trousers manage to stand out at her hips? and the length… how can she walk? but apart from these very mundane thoughts she – and the picture – is absolutely stunning.
I have been thinking about this image ALL DAY. It is incredible. Her body, in this clothing, is like a sculpture, and the proportions and alignment of her parts (left hip, shoulders, face, chest -length of chest, oh my goodness!) are so challenging. Whenever I focus on anything other than her right eye my mind goes into a spin trying to align her into a conventional shape. Thank you. Amazing.
Nice photo Scott. It really depicts the atmosphere in London last week. And to people who are curious about the trousers from Margiela. There is an elastic waistband inside, keeping them on place, so no, they are not too big.
I go to lectures every day in that building behind her and the one week I have off where I don't go down there, Scott Schuman is outside my university taking photos and I don't get to get an autograph. Just my sodding luck…. People don't ususally dress this well outside along the Strand, London Fashion Week makes every dress up in the street fashion equivalent of their Sunday best. I'm pretty sure there were people doing laps there today though, not going into any building there, hoping to get their photo here. Love the blog x
I love this look. Its very me. But I wonder where the waistband of her pants start and end…? Love the shawl like top, hmmm think I can get the same effect with a white pashmina cross tucked with a white tee underneath. Very simple outfit, but made interesting with texture. Love it, thank you for this photo.
