At Marc by Marc Jacobs

I'm trying to figure out how to say how well done i think this is but it just keeps sounding dumb so I will stop typing now.

He looks great ... it's looks complicated but so so simple ... who is he? he looks familiar ...


Blogger MARIA H said ... (10:15 AM) : 

The cardigan, shirt, look very polished. But he looks goth...for some reason...maybe the hair and the rosary..goth going to catholic school. Good sartorial structure, but not on him.


Blogger Carlene said ... (10:15 AM) : 

A picture is worth 1,000 words. This picture is a lovely example of the reason why this is so.

Blogger Lit said ... (10:17 AM) : 

I'm sorry Sart, I wish I could agree, but he looks like he jumped out of the poster from Prada's Fall/Winter 2005/6 collection, all those muted tones and the whole sombre feel. I think one needs to take everything in moderation, especially when it comes to fashion.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:28 AM) : 

So perfect. The pure white and pearl tones are so nice to see in the Fall, and the lighthanded accents of the necklace, garters and bagstrap make this look ethereal.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:47 AM) : 

looks to boyish to me. besides, the mega slim trend and to short jackets are a bit over the top at the moment.

When is that trend over, sart?


Blogger Butch said ... (10:47 AM) : 

The success of this has, I think, to do with the cleverness of the "composition": the diagonal of the strap against the half-oval of the collar and necklace; the horizontal bands on the sleeves, reiterated by the top of the pants...the eye keeps dancing around: very pleasing!


Blogger Jonathon Morgan said ... (10:49 AM) : 

He does look a little too sensitive/totured soul for his own good.

Maybe winter?

Although, rumor has it winter in NYC will turn your blood to ice. Maybe not all that practical.


Blogger Camille Acey said ... (10:50 AM) : 

Something about this just says monastery to me. He looks extremely gothy.
The picture is beautiful though.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:53 AM) : 

i really like the accesories. i am calmed by his colour choice. hes beautiful.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:05 AM) : 

it looks great! he looks soooo calm with his outfit, maybe a little too much. but still; nice work.


Blogger Claudio Moro said ... (11:15 AM) : 

Seems to be a mix between Prada and Jil Sander. The collar of the shirt could be just a little bit longer ... I am wondering what kink of shoes he waers ... hopefully no sneakers ;-)



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:16 AM) : 

Eck. I don't like. A costume. I much prefer your shots of "normal" people, heading to and from work, who manage to do so while looking great. This is too fashiony, too thought out.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:18 AM) : 

I think he pulls off the long hair and cardigan look beautifully.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:24 AM) : 

i wish i could see the bag. and does he have some sort of leather band around the sweater's sleeves?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:28 AM) : 

A bit too modelly for me...


Blogger kiarella said ... (11:34 AM) : 

He has a very personal style, I probably would not like this look on any other guy, but he looks just great,may be it is the hair, or his individuallure.....


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:58 AM) : 

this might be a bit of a strange question, but i don't know where else to ask it; does anyone know what the songs played at this show were?


Blogger Kelli said ... (12:19 PM) : 

Pieces of it are working for me like the slim cut pant but the buttoned up collar is too circa 1984 for my taste.

I just found the show schedule:

I would love to see Zac Posen and what Calvin Klein is up to.


Blogger City Slicker said ... (12:23 PM) : 

It is the necklace thing that puts me off. And somehow it emphasises his narrow physique. Fine but not to my taste. Like the hair though. Very well, English looking,


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:26 PM) : 

That's a guy?


Blogger 4chair said ... (12:29 PM) : 

He looks great. Marc Jacobs is so good at the little subdued details that seem to jump out at you. It's very artful, very cinematic and with a great use of collage / assemblage techniques. Picasso said collage would be the art-form of this century and this designer is a great representation of that view.
Every object has a meaning and he understands this and has a gift for placement and attention to colour.


Blogger Rafe Totengco said ... (12:50 PM) : 

This is very Prada last season or whatever but who cares. He looks cool and distinctive. Love those sleeve garters (?). The little necklace, skinny bag strap, it's also so delicate, but I think that's what he's going for. A little androgny never hurt anyone.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:54 PM) : 

I love his look. What is around his forearms? Those black things?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:05 PM) : 

I like it!!!!I like how he accessorizes...this look will be so so if it weren't for the rosary and those black straps (I don't even know what it is) on the cardigan and how the design of the bag's strap look across his chest. All of the accessories that he use are minimalistic and not over the top which really compliments the more quiet things in this outfit. AND I'm not sure if anyone thought about it but...doesn't he look like a blonde Olivier Theyskens?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:22 PM) : 

my bf and i have been searching for more fitted mens dress shirts for him that aren't ridiculously expensive, could you recommend any brands?

he's a huge fan of zara shirts for men, but variety would be great!


Blogger Claris said ... (2:17 PM) : 

One of Tolkien's elves in New York City.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:22 PM) : 

His name is Olof Erlandsson. He's a swede.

More pictures of him:


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:28 PM) : 

You know, I don't WANT to like it. But I do. While he does look like he might have walked off a photo shoot that was taking itself way too seriously, it looks as if it genuinely suits him. I think that's why it's indescribable. It shouldn't work for me. But it does.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:51 PM) : 

as noted, looks like goth prada


Blogger LovaGirl said ... (2:55 PM) : 

Love his style.. But the hair, scissors? anybody?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:18 PM) : 

Yikes, lit - so now prada owns the rights to muted tones and a somber feel? Going to be a long forever here in NYC. Plenty of people wearing that 'feel' since well before FW05/06.

Chicken or the egg, and all that.

And I think (s)he looks great. My barber wears the same armbands.


Blogger Elizabeth said ... (3:27 PM) : 

Wow, garters on the sleeves. Unheard of in this day and age.

And never you mind, you said it all perfectly.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:31 PM) : 

He's kinda got the androgynous look going on that has been prevalent in the recent fashion ads, except it's usually the females who resemble male features.


Blogger Berlinbound said ... (4:18 PM) : 

The androgony of the model dominates the frame - it overshadows the threads.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:19 PM) : 

Too Mia Farrell


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:24 PM) : 

So to all the swedes out there ... who is orloff erlandsson?


Blogger EM said ... (4:26 PM) : 

i think this boy looks soft like a noddle.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:27 PM) : 

I love his look, not too "done" at all. He looks like a Vermeer painting. I don't usually like long hair on men, but on him it looks natural.
Is he a model?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:38 PM) : 

That's a necklace, not a rosary.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:53 PM) : 

Iiiihh! That's one of my best friends! He looks beautiful, as always!
O- va kul att man skulle hitta dig här!


Blogger Lady Apple said ... (5:10 PM) : 

okay....i don't know what to think...i had to look at the pic several times to figure out that he was a guy...i hope he is a guy...or she has no chest...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:14 PM) : 

he's prettier than me!! he reminds me of the vampire lestat in the 21st century that just came from a prada show.

either way he look good


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:13 PM) : 

I agree. The British Monastic Vampire.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:09 PM) : 

Don't know if you were aware, but you made a sneak appearance in a pic with Leslie Fremar and Julianne Moore at the Rag & Bone show.


Blogger MARIA H said ... (9:22 PM) : 

the allure of white


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:28 PM) : 

I can see how from a "fashion" point of view this looks good, but I think if I saw this guy on the street I would think he looked...odd.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:27 AM) : 

reminds me of someone from Lord of the Rings


Blogger Xenu said ... (6:44 AM) : 

My friends usually call me the Marc it seems I have found a long lost brother...


Blogger Xenu said ... (6:46 AM) : 

also a nice Prada touch...


Blogger Gunillo said ... (7:37 AM) : 

Yes, he´s an urban Elfo.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:02 AM) : 

It is a gorgeous photograph, a great outfit, super detail-- and I am impressed by your loss of words.


Blogger Vien Thee said ... (8:11 AM) : 

Love it!


Blogger atticus_finch said ... (10:51 AM) : 

you only see a bit of them, but his pants are great.


Blogger positive_negative said ... (11:45 AM) : 

very, very smart. and i don't know if anyone has commented on this yet, but very architectual. only in my wildest dreams could i pull together an outfit like this.

i love it, ice cold.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:48 PM) : 

A fully buttoned up collar makes me think of that freaky Karr guy now. Another guy the other day did manage to full off the buttoned color, but because he looked really happy.

This is obviously the guy's look, and he pulls it off, but he makes think of an elf from LOTR forced into 1950s wear against his will!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:47 PM) : 

I really like this look. The accessories really make it pop.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:27 PM) : 

Ännu mer svenskar :D


Blogger Irihapeta said ... (12:23 AM) : 

I agree with City Slicker that this guy looks English. He reminds me of a young Julian Sands (actor). Can also see the LOTR elf look too.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:52 AM) : 

Back in my college years, he would've been my dream date. Now I say, lose the hair or lose the outfit to avoid looking like a cliché. And yet I can't help but think of the "tragically" lost blond appeal of Orlando Bloom. The boy is delicious and has good taste, the photo just amplifies it.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:12 PM) : 

he looks very sweet, she male maybe thats why you can't discride his look in words, or maybe you have a boy crush?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:42 PM) : 

He´s from stockholm, sweden. And I can tell you, he´s always lookin that great...


Blogger Girl of Approval said ... (5:31 PM) : 

He looks like a girl. It's just too feminine for me.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:59 AM) : 

From Sweden and name's Olof, he works in fashion, mostly with styling and public relation....


Blogger hoi polloi said ... (6:20 PM) : 

Nice. I've never seen these references before. On the one hand it says 1969 California, on the other hand east coast ivy league, on the third hand [heh, heh] slightly femme...great. he looks like a poet


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:56 AM) : 

mmmm,,donno..He wears nice clothes but i find him too female ... mabe i'm wrong..but still he is in style-but too "wool jacket soft male"


Blogger Lisa said ... (12:41 PM) : 

yup, he´s Swedish, I see him walking the streets of Stockholm sometimes. I think he works as a stylist. He should.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:24 AM) : 

That's Olof! He's really nice. Everyone in Sweden looks as beautiful as he does! love Stockholm love.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:33 PM) : 

he´s all dressed in a swedish brand called filippa k, such beutiful boy and clothes


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:30 AM) : 

Is he a model?
I guess so because the outfit seems to me like the grunge style of Marc Jacobs.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:17 PM) : 

love it. he's swedish. they have a great sense of style in sweden.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:23 PM) : 



Blogger Ricky James said ... (5:20 AM) : 

I love the chain over the shirt idea.. I must try this..


Blogger Marty McFly said ... (3:00 PM) : 

he looks amazing.

very well placed look.

the chain could look out of place but i think there is a good balance here

im jealous


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:49 AM) : 

He has some kind of perfect shape or object arrangement about him. Everything is positioned perfectly.
He looks like some kind of forest elf, pulled from the dark, moist, mossy depths and transformed into a modern urban elf of light.


Anonymous Anna said ... (3:58 AM) : 

The only thing i don't like is the necklace..apart from that he has made a great cobination of clothes and colours.And he is really goodlooking too!
