    she is lovely, her elegant but casual style and natural face are great, but can’t help wishing her hair was a little more groomed…

    such a gorgeously simple bag. it seems very much a part of her and i love how the color springs out against the black jackets and pants.

    This is such a perfect look. Her playful expression and youth tie it all together. I’m a big fan of canvas shoes.

    i love it. i am really marveling at the fact that the bag has no strap-always tucked in her arm.
    and she has an eye for beautiful pieces – the jackets and the bag and that ring in the second photo…

    i want a big blue bag!

    love the color of the bag, especially for these still-warm fall days in italy. i’m also obsessed with her color coordinating in the middle picture – great eye for complementary shades.

    Great style, great bag although I think she could do better with her hair

    I love the color and shape of her clutch. I like that it folds over. I wish I fit all of my belongings into a bag like that.

    the first photo is almost unreal – the way the lines of perspective converge on her; the repeated shapes., colours and lines of the scooters, building and trees. she actually kind of looks like a human exclamation point in that one.

    The bag is a gorgeous “objet”, but I would find something without a strap entirely impractical, except for evening wear.

    she is really just charming. her style is unpretentious and chic at the same time — i think the kind of style that can only come with ease.

    I love the fact that she has left her hair and face so natural, I actually think it makes the outfits, if her hair was all done and she was wearing lots of make up it wouldn’t be the same…

    she’s making me want these! :

    i love all three pictures and all three styles of her! she looks angelic in the first one, with the light cast on her, the shadow she gave away and the strong contrast between the background and her. i like the vintage green cropped leather jacket in the second picture and lastly, the hi-cut chucks with leggings and almost fitting coat!
    oh and of course the turquoise clutch! the ultimate accessory indeed!

    I love her hair and the no-make up face. It all spells C-H-I-C. Nice jacket in the 1st and last photos, too. Plus, I usually abhor colors but monochrome, but with her, it’s okay.

    the long cardigan in the last picture is quite divine. where is it from?

    she clearly has her basics (black, white, leggings, tee, black coats, white chucks) and then the standout accessories (green jacket, turquoise bag). I can’t wait to have such a disciplined sense of style.

    when i saw it, i thought she was standing on a catwalk, then i realized those were bikes around her, not people

    also, this woman exudes youthfulness, an you’ve managed to capture this in every shot of her
    great job sart!

    wow, shes really attached to that bag. honestly clutches get so tiresome. but yes what a coincidence catching her. great look she has.

  80. Quinn

    I must say that whereas ordinarily – despite being an avid reader of the blog – I never feel compelled to make inane comments on your pictures, there’s something about this girl’s grace that really moves me. The comparison is surely over-used, and almost always erroneously, but I can’t help but draw it; she has the truly effortless style of Audrey Hepburn in ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s.’

    Contrasted with the leggings, the coat in the first image has the perfect shape. It also reaches the correct point on her upper thighs.

    Not only is the green leather jacket also the perfect length, but it also works perfectly with the long, white top underneath. The pants add the perfect among of complication to the outfit; she manages to avoid being a Rothko-esque pairing of vertical blocks of color. All pieces stand alone in this ensemble, and in a sense they all pull their own respective weights.

    The soft, draped form of the trench-coat-meets-sweater in picture 3 is another example of a stand-alone, or independently special, garment. The skirt peaking through saves the look, albeit barely, from being too “shabby chic.” A perfect amount of shimmering ankle appears between the ultra-slender legging-clad legs and the similarly form-hugging high top converses that seem almost an extension of her feet.

    For all of those viewers who feel inclined to obsess over the minutiae – be it the cut of her hair (apparently not suitable to this audience), or the color of her bag (on the contrary, a real hit) – I would issue a brief word of advice, so to speak:

    Do not comment unless you have genuinely valuable and novel insight to add to the open discussion of Mr. Schuman’s photographs. Stop abusing the power you have to share your every thought, should you so choose, on the internet.

    well I will join everyone else in saying I love that bag, but I also VERY much LOVE the green leather jacket. And I also LOVE the 1st photo artistically speaking with her in the middle and all the scooters/motos lined up on the sides…so Italian…

    Although I didn’t read every single comment I can not believe more people aren’t flipping out over the first photograph: first, the light; and second–her shoes! This woman is gorgeous and, as surely as she holds her Marc Jacobs clutch close to her bosom, will carry the human race one generation further into evolutionary perfection.
    They shoes are already there.

    It's not where she is.
    It's not what she wears.
    It's her that who knows what to keep, in this case it's her own bag.
    What I think what fashion is that everything is in your draws. They are there because you bought them so if there are a few items you never had around, go and find the partners that also are in your draws.
