i wonder how much a person's natural beauty affects viewer's perception of her or his dressing sense

 

Blogger Candi Soeleman said ... (3:42 AM) : 

always love the bold of red black and white, plus love the short hair, match the attitude. nice siluet from the pants

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:46 AM) : 

Love the rings and her red shoes but I find the pants terribly unflattering. I'm sure she has a lovely slim figure underneath but here her legs appear to be very short and stumpy.

 

Blogger Linda said ... (3:51 AM) : 

A bit weird looking outfit, but interesting. I like the colors on her clothes that goes well with her hair and skin.

 

Blogger Anacleta Coqueta said ... (4:00 AM) : 

I really like it!

What I like most is the portrait on your pics.

Love the pants

Funny how the combination of red and black look very Russian. Her face also

How do you get them so relax to take the photo?

 

Blogger Brigadeiro said ... (4:24 AM) : 

Ooh! How I love this shot! The pop of red and those pants (I could never pull-off drop-crotch, but she loks gorgeous!) and the backdrop...just gorgeous!

 

Anonymous caray said ... (4:29 AM) : 

the top looks good. the pants are heinous. i don't understand dropped crotch...it would be so much better as a skirt!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:42 AM) : 

I see you enjoy your stay in Moscow!
This woman is very stylish...I love her red lips in combination with her nude make-up. Her pants are wonderful and the socks in her red ballerina's give the extra touch!
I am looking forward to the other pictures Sart.

the red goes well with her straight attitude

Anonymous Bonoui said ... (6:28 AM) : 

A beautiful girl.
I am unsure if I really like this style of pant. I don't mind a slouchy, paper-bag type of pant with a tapered, cropped leg. I find a crotch this low, whilst very trendy, ultimately unflattering.
I do love the use of colour in this outfit, it ties the whole look together and saves this otherwise gorgeous girl.

The sophisticated variant of the previous look.

Not sure about the outfit, but she's definitely got originality...and a gorgeous face to go with it.

glamourous, yet not in an obvious way. i love the shape that the pants create. totally not what i expected from moscow.

sart, when are you coming to london again?

Lovely !
J'adore son fute, le rouge et sa coupe de cheveux. Juste les chaussettes grises qui sont pas top.

i love her pants =)

 

Anonymous suzanne nelson said ... (7:43 AM) : 

Love the colours and her rings, her pale blue nail polish. Those pants will look great when she moves and i like what she's done with proportion on the top half of her body. Cute shoes. Beautiful doorway too - there are so many architectural details in Moscow that remind you you really are in a place where east meets west. Hope you're having a great time, Sart.

 

Blogger Jorge from W Palm Beach said ... (7:52 AM) : 

I love the red on her, she wears it very well. These pants have been in several collections and are sure to become the next mass fashion item. I wondered about them in the 80s and I wonder now: what do they do for the silhouette? It seems to me they make legs seem shorter, and subjects squat. Unless you are doing MC Hammer's sideways crab walk, there is really no use for these pants. Looking for time to prove me right, Jorge from W Palm Beach

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:08 AM) : 

Wonderful combination of my favourite colours, i love the red shoes with the grey socks!

is thatthe sane girl as the one in fur and sweatshirt? i like her pants. Are they sweatpants?

 

Anonymous tj said ... (8:28 AM) : 

She *really* needs a different color nail polish. The combination of the red cardi with that nail color is just not working for me.
However, the color of her lips works like a dream with the color of the cardi.

 

Blogger Barbara said ... (8:31 AM) : 

those pants are so in right now.

 

Anonymous Adriana V said ... (8:49 AM) : 

Oh, ok... please tell me some people won't find this FAaaaaaabulous. That is not cute. Change the pants for ANYTHING and I would love her laid back sense of coordination but other than saying she must be brave, I can't comment further.

 

Anonymous see el dub said ... (8:59 AM) : 

i absolutely love those pants. until now i have only seen pants with a long crotch on men. she really pulls them off and puts a great russian flair into them.

 

Blogger notfaraway said ... (9:00 AM) : 

love her colour

 

Blogger londondog said ... (9:04 AM) : 

Harem pants are so difficult to pull off but with her slender gamine look they work so beautifully. Love the grey socks too.

 

Blogger Elizabeth DeLee said ... (9:06 AM) : 

Very unique and interesting! It takes a lot to become bold and wear those pants, but then again it appears to me that European woman have a more mature, ladylike,put together, unique look than most American woman. I give her props!

 

Blogger gregorytoddsmith said ... (9:11 AM) : 

I love the low-crotched knickers like this, but I've still got to admit... it's such a strange silhouette. It's not the most flattering thing, but that is probably largely due to what we normally see and usually consider flattering to be.

 

Blogger George said ... (9:26 AM) : 

Clean, bold, bright, distinct. Sure looks like a graphic designer to me. I'm glad this was posted also, in the hope that others will realize not all graphic designers wear black or grey turtlenecks and slim dress pants.

 

Blogger Andy said ... (9:30 AM) : 

That is cute. I'm not sure what's going on with her pants though. Is there something coming down behind or is the crotch of the pants that low?

 

Blogger Mr. (FEROZ) said ... (9:33 AM) : 

I really like the pants. I saw some like that in Barcelona. And I'm taken aback by the socks...but it is Moscow...chillin' temperatures right?

 

Blogger Benji said ... (9:37 AM) : 

Brilliant!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:41 AM) : 

I'm not crazy about the outfit but i like it, although she seems to be cold, which makes it pointless to me. She has an amazing face.

 

Blogger john benjamin pritchett said ... (9:41 AM) : 

I can't tell in the pant crotch is almost to her knees or if it's a skirt-over-pant. If it's skirt-over-pant its a great look. Red shoes & sweater really stand out. Cute factor-100%! "The Ukraine girls really knock me out..."

I love the sweatpants. Got to pose myself in them and snap a few shots of the kidz on the streets wearing them here in Amsterdam.

 

Anonymous nikkijoon said ... (10:00 AM) : 

love the cardigan, the shirt underneath and the shoes. the bright rhubarb color is huge this season. but whats with the crotch of her pants coming down the floor and when did it become acceptable to wear bulky socks with heels? she looks like she lacks self confidence with that shy pose.

Those pants have to go. I'm having MC Hammer flashbacks as I write this.

Lovely girl..top is good...bottom is too slouchy.. tight leggings under the skirt needed...

 

Anonymous lauren said ... (10:15 AM) : 

great photo, love the exposure on this one and the contrast of the red and grey background.

The new style low slung trousers are not only in fashion but have a Russian theme.

 

Blogger Jennifer G. Horn said ... (10:19 AM) : 

Beautiful haircut & color use, but please don't tell me MC Hammer pants (or as we called them in Turkey, 7-day pants) are coming back in fashion!

 

Blogger hrose said ... (10:25 AM) : 

oooh love the red, black and grey together.
drop crotch pants are not my thing, but she looks amazing.

 

Blogger mushkie said ... (10:30 AM) : 

i like the style of the pants with the red shoes. her hairs pretty awesome and the over all outfit is well thought out and cute. those pants look really comfortable! i cant believe people from Russia have got this great style! beautiful pictures Sart.

 

Blogger beths said ... (10:39 AM) : 

Stunning haircut and face, fine sense of color--when if ever will I get used to those pants?

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:46 AM) : 

Ah! A much better way to wear this long rise/low-slung jodhpur shape.

Fitted this way, the trousers create negative space between the legs (and not in the sausaging effect of the Moscowian below), as well as creating a column of the body.

Colour accent and proportions -- of course this girl's a graphic designer! Use of colour seems consistent with the rules of Russian Constructivism (ha ha!).

One thing does bother me though -- the socks! Wish they were a more saturated black.

 

Anonymous Hellena said ... (10:52 AM) : 

Ohhh no not those pants again!!
what huge difference would a black normal pair of pants do...
love her face -very french amelie...

 

Blogger David Cockrell said ... (10:54 AM) : 

love the MC Hammer pants, lots of those in Barcelona as well but mostly on men. The Dorothy Wizard of Oz shoes are a shining beacon in this dismal economy.

 

Blogger Janelle Bentley said ... (11:03 AM) : 

Mmm... I like the top half of the outfit and the cute shoes, but I'm not feeling the pants. They're interesting, but it looks like she's standing in a hole...

Love it! Not my personal style of shoe, but the colors, the silhouette are so great. I have been trying to find zouave-style pants for ages now! This girl gets it all right.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:33 AM) : 

No crack on your great photography or this woman's outfit, but her look and the background palette stands out from her waist up. Makes me wonder what a closer shot of this same pose would have revealed.

 

Blogger Grace said ... (11:37 AM) : 

FINALLY MOSCOW!!!!!!!!! YES!!!! More Russian fashion, more more more. Everything in fashion is Russian these days; fur, jewels, ...fur, red, fur. Vive la Russe!

and harem pants! loves!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:48 AM) : 

i think the pants would look better in motion... but standing still, with the look of shortened legs, is creepy. I really like her nail polish and simplicity with everything else.

Blogger Wanderlusting said ... (12:34 PM) : 

I hate those damn Harem pants. Just because it's trendy doesn't mean it suits you. Or anyone!

But her shoes are fantastic (look vintage, I likey) and even with socks which I also think is tricky, they look great.

Just wish those pants weren't the "height"of fashion right now. As super comfy as they look!

wonderful use of color

She makes the pants look no so MC Hammer like.

I am afraid of imitators though.

They are perhaps the least flattering pants ever conceived......unless you are tall and thin

Beautiful girl. I love the colors on her, her hair, her lovely face, I even kina' like the nails. But the pants.... oooh, what they do to a body. Short legs, loooooong torso. Borderline diaperish. It's very weird. And yet not much can take away from this girl's beauty.

 

Blogger Caterina said ... (1:48 PM) : 

Hello,
thank you for showing an unexpected side of Moscow. I am curious about the tomoorow´s pics. I think you might change my point of view about what´s going on at russia´s fashion (sub)-culture.
I like this look here a lot. stylish, comfy, individual though classy. The opposite of fur, glitter and kitsch. Thank you again.

 

Blogger dorian allworthy said ... (1:50 PM) : 

The red shoes seem a bit to matching with the sweater - they draw my eye away from her face - where I would rather look.

 

Blogger hilary c. said ... (1:50 PM) : 

I love her look, however the drop-crotch trend is not just surfacing, it has been and now is already going - for example, on the legs of fashion community Chictopia in the last few months already, or on any Nordic teenage boy.

however, I don't think the age of a look (whether new, or 'out') should necessarily dictate the decision to wear it.

 

Blogger S of Modern-Guilt said ... (1:57 PM) : 

The red and black is so perfect on her.

Her clothes is matter of her attitude - and that is bold and brave. Some others would look slouchy and common but she looks confident and comfortable;)

I like the top parts and the shoes, though. She looks well put together.

I've seen Lubov Azria rock a pair of these drop crotch type pants and she looked fabulous...but I still think it's a very European look.

This is really, really awesome. The little red heels and gray socks really complete the look.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:17 PM) : 

I don't like her pants because they're extremely unflattering. On the other hand, if she was wearing "normal" pants/skirt, she'd look boring. So, overall, I'd say I don't like this outfit but the girl is pretty.

Coulour coordination that works. She looks very comfortable; in her clothes and most importantly in her skin.

Love This!! She looks young and chic and modern. Her hair is great too. She looks very comfortable and her face shows a great calmness. I love the 'pop' of colour and the contrasting blue nails. I also love the street-scape and how she stands out from it and at the same time is very much a part of it. Lovely. Moscow is showing great promise. Thanks Scott - worth the wait.

great photo & composition but the pants remind me of looking in a circus mirror

 

Anonymous student said ... (6:23 PM) : 

I like how you added in the title "Graphic Desinger". It makes us look at her in a different way. Stereotypically, she is not supposed to dress like this, which makes the picture even better.

 

Anonymous Diana said ... (7:03 PM) : 

Overall she looks great, I can even forgive the pants, but those shoes with socks is really wrong. My objection to the pants is that they look look like babies nappies. Reminds me of Humphrey B Bear and his full nappy look.

 

Anonymous tara said ... (7:10 PM) : 

I love the colors, but I don't love the silhouette of the pants. I really don't love that the crotch is down to her knees -- is she wearing a skirt over pants???

The pants make her look like a monkey but she is pride and that saves her.

 

Anonymous karmapolice said ... (7:33 PM) : 

at least from these first two moscow postings, i'm starting to see this idea of "re-invented glamour" (i don't know what else to call it). sweats paired with furs, and now drop-crotch pants worn elegantly. hmm...

i like it!
can't wait for more moscow

I don't love that kind of pants, but well, they look good on her.

Haha, and I love the little detail of the light blue nails...it looks like she painted them like that for a different, previous outfit, but they also look good here...they are a touch of fun.

Blogger Stephanie said ... (7:59 PM) : 

Blue nail polish is striking against her pale skin and dark hair. The clothing colors suit her. But I truly don't understand the pants. Style should flatter the body, and the cut of these pants do not...a trend gone too extreme for good style.

Let me start off by saying that this is nice picture. love the red shoes, red cardigan, and the white T as well. I'm very fashion forward, but just don't like unflattering clothes. the pants are different, but look very bad. goes to say that different isn't always good.

Anonymous HPrince said ... (6:43 AM) : 

This picture is fabulous, thou a bit cliche (red and black), but it works for her!
Unlike 80% of comments, i DO think that those low crotch pants work wonders! You can't just see the picture (even if it looks great, imho), you've got to picture her moving! It doesn't shorten her legs! on the contrary, it extends them while moving, because it's so slouchy that creates the ilusion of longer legs.
I just can't stand americans (mostly - and I'm sorry, it's not my intention to hurt anybody's feelings) who deny alternative styles until the very second they see them on a major european brand!
The same goes for the naipolish colour! - it may not be the right one for this outfit, but it's beautiful!
Go Sart! you really rock!
When will you visit this fabulous country called Portugal? And this quintesential city Oporto? You'll just love it, I assure you!

I know it was not your intention to offend and your "statement" has some truth to it, but could you generalize and promote stereotypes any further? And besides, it isn't just Americans who do that...

I love everything about the outfit (the shoes!) except for the drop crotch pants. And as an American, I assure you that I will not like it even if it becomes a trend among major European labels. Drop crotch pants - not for me.

I am really not feeling those pants! It makes her look horrible. But again, she makes it look somewhat bearable!

is she wearing jhodpur pants? the jhodpur is a guilty pleasure - it's comfortable but also got MC Hammer factor

-VD-

She's beautifull! Hope she get turquoise socks...

i love this outfit, every little detail of it and i think that's also why it looks so perfect - because of the details.
the rings, the matching red of the shoes, cardigan and her lips, the nailpolish(!), the haircut and of course the jodhpurs! (i really don't understand why so many people here don't like them.. is it just because they're not used to seeing them?)

simply lovely!

love LOVE.
the shoes and socks are my favorite part.

Looks great on her, but only a select few can pull off those pants.

I like what these pants are doing to people - making statements without knowing what it is. Making action and emotions - hate em or love em. This week I'm getting them!

My first thought is didn't MC Hammer start this look?

Funny to read how the pants of the woman are both loved and hated. I have never heard of another type of clothing that people reacted on so extremely. I myself have a couple of sarouel pants (or aladdin pants if you like) and I think you can't really judge them unless you have worn some yourself. Maybe they look strange, but the feeling of wearing these pants is amazing. Thank you Sart, for showing such a nice example!

gorgeous outfit. im loving the trousers, i really think theyre what make the outfit work. with a skirt, she'd look like a schoolgirl and not half as interesting as she does now.

It's like the pants from the NOM*D show they did this year at ANZFW

She really works the pants. Never seen someone wear it so well.

ah, so argentina is not the only country in the world suffering from the genie/hammerpant redux look. it's been all over buenos aires for the last 3 months. i guess i'll brace myself for when this trend makes it to the us.

Love the model's look...HATE the pants! Nuff said =)

what's the deal with these pants? not very flattering at all, they are distorting a perfectly good pair of legs, what is going on????

I think HAMMER pants are even better than this.

I was wondering how to wear my churidar. That's an answer, but I'll have to look for more.
By the way, it'll be nice if you do a book. I love street fashion and you've definitively got an eye for it.

I don't understand the popularity of this crotchline. It makes the wearer look short. Terrific cropped cardigan with that t-shirt, phenomenal haircut, and love her rings and nail color.

hammer pants were dumb in 1989 and they will be dumb in 2009. seriously! ohh...i forgot...they're not hammer pants...they're russian circus pants. where are the elephants?

 

Blogger Sage said ... (11:48 PM) : 

i don't care how much people say they find the pants unflattering. these looked great at philip lim's show and i truly believe they will make way. i am already trying to shed a few pounds so i can be lean enough to pull these wonderful pants off! needless to say, i love her look.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:13 PM) : 

this girl looks like she just stepped out of a russian avant garde painting of the 20's.love it.
her beauty is timeless.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:16 PM) : 

i think with this one it's not about whether it's flattering or not, to me it's about oddity, shapes and getting us to see something we are not used to in terms or proportion. i like it more from that standpoint.

all i can say is those pants are hideous. But she's really pretty.

Pretty much informative.

I met several lovely russian females of various ages (20-50) and they all seemed to have numerous pairs of such pants.
peculiar style-wave!

can't fault it one bit.
