    Gorgeous, gorgeous, super edgy women.
    Love fur trims on coats, automatically lifts the coolness factor.

    I like the idea of a midi dress and ankle socks. Nice use of proportions and length.

    Love the lace and sock-and-heel look in the second picture! Both coats look rather cozy indeed!

    Oh, that second one is incredible. The huge fur collar is amazing- so sophisticated and such a statement!

    Definitely 20′s silhouette!!!!!American expatriates in Paris vibe. Verging on the costume-y–but definitely original and refreshing to the eye.

    With style shots like these, though, winter can stay a bit longer. Loving both of these coats, the colors (and collars) are amazing.

    Nothing beats a great coat to ward off unwanted cold spring time weather!

  35. CoryB

    March 25, 2012 at 1:14 pm

    I love the two. it’s interesting how the silluette is so similar, with the coat, the fur, the skirt, the shoes. nevertheless, they both still look really individual. and because of the textures, the colours and possibly because the shoes are not open, the first one looks a bit more wintery and the second one more spring-appropriate.


  36. The slow pace

    March 25, 2012 at 1:41 pm

    Yes… some part of the world are still suffering this neverending winter!But I guess that with those gorgeous outfits we still can wait a bit longer for Spring to come!

    I love this. We’re trying to transition to spring, but it’s just too cold! At least in some parts of the world :)

    Comming from Scandinavia, I do love fur it gives always a great look. The contrast of textures makes the look work.
    I have photos on my blog of a Scandinavien fox fur, which gives a chic look.

    It’s the shoes that make these outfits most memorable – mostly for me it is all about the bags. But this time it is definitley the shoes!

    I like the elongated silhouette of this coat! A bit retro. But it’s stylish!

    Elegant but casual- sophisticated but playful. Dark and moody yet inspirational and daring.

    The almost ankle length cut of the skirts is so interesting to look at. The layers of lace, cotton and sock and shoes is perfect. I find all of these things so surprising because they are all so different and but go so well together. Creative women.

    As always the composition on these photos are superb. I wish I had a camera like yours Mr. Sartorialist! Your quality of photos is so fresh and authentic. Keep em coming! xx SS

    Interesting. In the first shot, the clean line down the back sets off the wonderfully luxurious fall of the collar. Great flow and line. In the second, the fabric of the coat is too bulky and doesn’t mould to the cut.

  52. Martine

    March 25, 2012 at 6:39 pm

    The coats are beautiful, the skirt lengths are beautiful, those soft fur collars are beautiful, the look is just so polished. I wish they were holding one of those loooong cigarette holders from the thirties!!! I can just keep looking at them and enjoying it.

    I love, love, love, love the anklets, especially with the glitter shoes. Anklets hearken back to a time that we romanticize, but was anything but romantic. WWII. Stockings were a true luxury, if one could find any at all.

  54. Anastasia

    March 25, 2012 at 8:12 pm

    i love these looks – the sock with heels has been featured on your blog many times and it still FAB!!! gorgeous!!

  55. Peter

    March 25, 2012 at 8:17 pm

    love both of these – but those shoes in #1 are out of control! They’re like hiking boot-club kid-stilleto-perfection. i can’t even deal…

    I think it all begins with the shoes…. It makes or breaks the outfit.

    This is a lovely reworking of early 20th century shapes and textures. Even though I really am so tired of shoes-as-imprisoning-sculptures I’d still rather look at these elegant women than the 1980s ski jacket passed through 1920s cocoon-coat cutting software seen lately!

    I do not like the ankle socks with the heels at all. But the coats are great. Guess I’m not quite that edgy.

    Fierce shoes from the first photo! :)

    @Cece. I was just watching that new Upstairs Downstairs, and thats exactly what the sparkly shoe pic reminded me of. You must have read my mind. I was just looking at it again for this very reason.

    Love the contrasts in the second photo–lace and tweed, socks & sparkles. And while it seems counter-intuitive, the series of horizontal lines from the belt down (belt, coat hem, skirt hem[s], sock top, shoe top) makes her look really long & lean.

  82. Chahrazad

    March 26, 2012 at 1:24 pm

    Love the look of both. Especially their shoes and the dress/skirt they are wearing. It looks also a bit cold.. Brr! I hope the sun will never disappear here in Holland haha.

    They look like they could have gotten dressed together! Such similar styling. Loving the silhouette of these coats, bummed we had to pull them back out.

    These shoes are only for those prisoners of every recent trend. We will laugh our heads off ten years down the line.

    If I cover up the shoes in the first picture, the woman looks elegant and charming. Uncover the shoes: Voila! Olive Oyl.

    Beautiful portraits. The woman in the second photo is especially alluring-I would love to see the rest of that dress-looks lovely and delicate. It’s especially beautiful paired with the more robust accroutements of winter dressing and the platform shoes.

    Without those shoes that skirt length would be frumpy. With the shoes, its elegant! Besides, the shoes are platform, so they are very comfortable to walk in. Its shoes that have no platform but make you arch your feet that are painful beyond belief.
