    Very unique mix-and-match to produce something that is definitely hers!

    Check out those tights! Actually no, the hat! Yes, I like the hat.
    Lots of prints and patterns going on, but the reds on top and bottom keep it all tied together.


    April 16, 2013 at 9:15 am

    cool style!! she make a good and original mix of difference style!!

    You’re artist, Scott!

    I love this portrait. That look is a work of art. Are those holes in the coat?

      Thats soo true… a modern Geisha… Love it

      You’re so right, “geisha” instantly came to my mind too. Odd thing though, is that nothing here except for the red lips and pale face should be signalling that iconography (maybe the waist-tie too) and yet something in the way she stands or holds herself evokes the image of a geisha. And she’s so brilliant in that her outfit is also part Dickensian street urchin (the over-sized masculine coat, the floppy hat, the too-short sleeves and layered clothes), Scottish highlands (the tartan), and Victorian tradesman/peasant (the utilitarian looking leather strap and bag, the wooden clogs, floral patterned socks). What a crazy combination! So unforgettable.

    Everything is in the hat!

    This is a brilliant outfit. I’m especially loving her hat. The white strap of the bag across her shoulder detracts a bit, but not so much as to ruin it. I’d love to see it with the coat off, too.

      Good eye — the white strap did detract but I hadn’t identified it. Agree it’s not crucial, but I think would be better without. Everything else is amazingly creative. Love her makeup.

    • MRuth

      April 16, 2013 at 4:50 pm

      On second thought… the white strap is a kind of “policeman” aggressive touch. I don’t love it, but it does add an element.

    Eccentric chic! More of us should have the chutzpah to dress with such imagination.

    QUE LOOK…MIX DE ESTAMPAS…Un estilo muy particular!1

    geisha !

  19. Diane

    April 16, 2013 at 10:20 am

    Such a busy , rather large look. But it’s her doll like face that makes it all OK.

  20. [email protected]

    April 16, 2013 at 10:23 am

    Golly! I love this woman’s sauciness. That vintage chapeau slung over her eyes so they barely show (creating mystery). The swagger (yes, women can have it too). The fire engine red pumps. Yes, I”m certain she had passerby on 7th avenue wondering who she was…the intriguing woman with an attitude!

  21. rosmary

    crazy style, but I like it

  22. Anakiya

    April 16, 2013 at 10:28 am

    Very interesting look. Although I would not be able to pull this off myself and am not sure I actually love it, it absolutely makes one stop and take notice. Because my first love is makeup I couldn’t help but notice the red lips. Beautifully applied and as always beautifully captured in the shot. Great picture but I’m sure you know that already.

    Spectacular sense of style.

    wow, perfect photo and she is really so original and I like it.

    Very excentric look, but I like it!


  26. Christina

    April 16, 2013 at 10:43 am

    I absolutely love that shot. She is beautiful, eccentric and current and that is hard to do!! I always wonder if women like this find it stressful to dress in the morning or if it really is effortless sense of style…..anyway….only you could have run in to her on the street and recognized the power.

    Oh, and as a note ….I was at the Boston Marathon yesterday and I wish the people of Boston and those who where hurt a peaceful recovery to normalcy.

      Finally someone says it. This outfit makes me dizzy. She is beautiful though.

    Please return us to Miami or Rio; this hurts!

    • Caroline Bentley

      April 16, 2013 at 12:40 pm

      Please! More of Rio, freshness, beauty… This girl is exotic and I love her but the other pictures were so spiring and attractive! Made me want to see more of those people and their style.

  30. Elena

    April 16, 2013 at 11:15 am

    Very unique and artistic look, the layering is very bulky but with her doll face everything will look amazing!!!

    Woww, original style!
    Love the photo!

    I am a loyal follower and admirer, but in this case, as my mother would say, “She looks like a funny valentine.”

  33. billts

    April 16, 2013 at 11:43 am

    Too street person chic for my taste, although I do love the hat and her red lips.

  34. Just James

    April 16, 2013 at 11:46 am

    Hmmm, not really my cup of tea. I’m thinking chic nomad or gypsy traveller. Okay, I kinda like it!

  35. Anthony

    April 16, 2013 at 11:48 am

    It’s very nice but not in public which is most likely the only place you would see it.

    Great personal sense of style. Love it, esp. the shoes…..

    I especially like her lipstick. I wonder what it is.

    If this isn’t avant-garde, then I don’t know what is.
    Definitely a personal style, that you need to love.
    The coat’s pretty awesome

    this reminded me of rei kawakubo collections of the 1990s…no? i’m loving the look, not a total fan of the shoes though they work, really loving the proportion of the plaid garment and the scale of the weave.

    Thank you for sharing

    The touches of that glamorous, perfectly matching red are beyond hot. Especially the lipstick. She has such a perfect cupid bow mouth. The thing I love though are the shoes. Are they rubber? I love rubber shoes.

    Love this look. It’s so daring! There’s a lot going on with her outfit, but she manages to pull it off and look very chic! Her ensemble’s so Alexander McQueen meets retro ’50s.

    Love the shoes. Some people are just born unique. She looks great, but if I tried this, I’d look like a bag lady. She has great style.

    This is one of those Sartorialist photos that I want to keep on my closet door for inspiration. She looks like she should be hanging out with the girl from your “Where are the dreamers?” post.

    Aw man! This looks like it’s an ad, not a street style shot.
    I wonder if she stepped out in this with the intention of getting shot or not.

    Stands out from the crowd….

    Love her from the neck up.
    Below that is just gravy.

    Her hat and face reminds of old Samurai.

  66. Mila

    April 17, 2013 at 5:39 am

    Rather over the top for my taste. The style is impressive but can’t see how anybody can really be themselves in such an ellaborate outfit.

  67. LesFleurs

    April 17, 2013 at 7:29 am

    So the hat matches the Skirt and the shoes match the top but the effort is tiring and it still looks a random mess. Sometimes I wonder if you’re just being provocative.

  68. Kate

    April 17, 2013 at 8:13 am

    Well, she is just all kinds of incredible. Kind of looks like when I put on everything I owned to be prepared the first time mom said we were going to the grocery store…but maybe I should still be more like that :)

    Is the coat Comme des Garcon? Love this look, but I could never pull it off. I admire the people who can.

    Love the way she wears the hat, a tiny nothing over her eyes. Like the pink spots, she looks like a painting

    how unexpected ! a shock, in the happiest sense of the word–

    if I saw this apparition on the street, I’d be forced to notice.. forget my problems for a moment.. and smile —

    the “old fashioned” Asian porcelain doll look, achieved by the modest hooding over the eyes, the traditional makeup, even her expression, juxtaposes so vividly with the modern, 21st century jazz-like, studied chaos of the rest..

    the symmetry of the RED (hands, feet, neckline, lipstick) unifies.

    what fun..

    I’m finding myself playing a game every time I log on, here, these days..

    I look at the figure in the picture, only.
    I don’t let myself look at the caption or the street details.
    and I try to guess where (city) the ‘model’- the outfit- is..

    as a complete non-professional-in-the-fasion-world, I’m amazed how I guess correctly!

    fashion really IS a kind of language.. and local dialects/idioms are.. visible!

    Very intriguing and tastefully ensembled. The heavy coat reminds me of Tibetan or Mongolian army, the wooden clogs, the socks, the clutch she carries, and the band of her floppy hat, the waist band, dramatically create a Japanese flair of mixed street and traditional fashion. The puckered lips finished it all off. Sublime!

    This is such a beautiful face… The combo of dreamy portait over the heavy solid clothing makes this photo really hard to stop looking at…

    Stunning sheer beauty

  81. Victoria

    April 25, 2013 at 10:05 am

    An ethereal Beauty… Such a dreamy face…. Wow
    And the piercing single lightness of her beautiful face is such a contrast with the heaviness and sumptuous assemblage of her clothing.

    Way to wear a hat! It’s rare that a fashion hat can be tied under the chin and still look chic. Kudos
