On the Street…Graceful Steps Paris

I love the design details
I love the harmony of colors
but I most love the graceful way she walks.

    One of your outstanding qualities as a photographer is that you can make us see things most of us would not notice. I would not have given her a second glance, but I can see what you are saying. On a secondary note, I like how her clutch matches her cardigan/blouse. Jorge from W Palm Beach

    Am I the only one who has a problem with “signature looks” ?
    In this case signature prints , Prada s/s 08.
    All I see is Prada – the lovely lady wearing the dress comes second.

    Agreed. The colours are beautiful and soft. Looks like a wistful moment to me.

    Mr Schuman, if you like the angular grace and poise of her movements, you should try to catch the (menswear) stylist/consultant Michele Rafferty in London or Milan or something one day – this (charming) image totally reminded me of her way of moving. (Her outfit will most likely be rockin’ also, with exemplary sleeve management.)

    A thought provoking post: i love the colours and what she is wearing and it made me think who’d have though a rear view could be as attractive and seductive as a front view? may be all men know that (?!) but as a woman although i always check my rear view in the mirror as my grandmother taught me, i always think of my front view as being the most important. this has taught me not necessarily so…

    Those sleeves are brilliant! I’m going to tuck that awesome little detail away in my things to make and do file.

    [email protected]:15 am — It’s actually Prada Resort. And no, I think this woman wears the dress beautifully, with no fuss. The world is larger than the few who’d recognise it as a Prada anything.

    The skirt is actually Prada resort 2008. I love the way the dusty pink cardigan compliments the colors of the flowers in the skirt. The sleeves on the cardigan are quite unique lightly wrapped like that! It is such a clever, quirky, and also elegant touch. And, as far as I can see, her shoes are darling!

    If I were young and beautiful, this is how I would imagine I could look and where I would want to be…since she already has the effortless look down, she appears to have deeper thoughts going on…other than someone photograping her.

    I really love the colors – & those sandals are quite cute, too. Purple rocks.

    I love her posture
    I love her delicacy
    but I most love that you make me see her through eyes that are not my own, and with a perspective I would never have picked.

    The way she holds her arms from the back is very intriguing. It’s awkwardly graceful. Love the bursts of purple in her clutch and sandals! Very pretty cardigan detail that we wouldn’t have seen had you shot her from the front..

    Reminds me of some of the 30′s fabrics and wall coverings that my grandmother had in her house. And I mean that in a good way because I really like fabrics and wall coverings from that time.

    Sart this is definitely one of my favourite photos of yours. And I have seen all the photos you uploaded.

    I love the outfit but don’t agree as for the walk. To me it looks awkward rather than graceful.

    I’m in love with the rolled up sleeves and just the overall comfort factor that this ensemble emits. The cosmetic bag-esque purse (clutch?) works surprisingly well also.

    I really love every detail, but the skirt ruins it. She had grace and elegance, but the skirt adds a bit of Wal-Mart. Sorry, but it’s true.

    I like the outfit, but not so much the pose. Her right arm strikes me as a bit awkward, though I doubt she walks like that permanently, so it’s all right. But I don’t get how several people are able to comment on her graceful walk – this photo is not a video. It’s one thing for the Sartorialist to comment on her deportment seeing as how he saw her in action, but quite another for everyone to seemingly have been there as well.

    Also, I think the clutch/bag is Stella McCartney (to the person who asked). Her accessories have oversized circle zippper tabs.

    I agree with your comments, Scott (I take this opportunity to congratulate you for this site; it’s the one blog that inspires to dress the way that makes you feel good by showing what’s people are choosing to wear.)

    The overall color combination is soothing to the eye and feels intuitive (even if was not, but then, that doesn’t make a difference anyway!)

    not just anybody would look like her with the same outfits, so Prada or whatever is not that important.
    anyway,for me,nothing but her neck! her gasping her arms.. my fave!

    prada? hmmm… most of us don’t see designer names when we look at someone’s outfit. unless, of course, the desinger name is plastered on the front. this photo is stunning. she is obviously in a world of her own as she gracefully strolls. i’m intrigued. the purple sandle does it – perfectly. i L*O*V*E it.
